​A Madonarism Moment!

"It is only when we can imagine ourselves in the shoes of those who are already in the nonprofit vineyard, that we can begin to get a sense of what it takes to establish and maintain such an  organization." -A Madonarism by Madona Cole-Lacy-

We might also discover how important those around us are in the equation of the running and maintenance of a successful non-profit not unlike Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. (whose objective is to effectively reach out to and creatively embrace those whom we know could use what it is that we have to offer them). While this scenario is fresh in our minds, let us go to the flip side of this equation, aka, the disinterest in such an initiative - for countless reasons that might have nothing to do with those who would benefit from it.

My appeal is for friends of Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. to come forward and volunteer to help in any way that they can -- to restore the machinery back to the state it was before the health challenges of my husband, our Program Director, struck.  Mr. Lacy, despite his current struggles, is quite devoted to the cause. Those who already have enough on their proverbial plate can certainly spread the word to others who are looking to make a difference. Please tell us about your intentions 

I want to thank everyone who has in one way or the other showed support to Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. over the years. We still need you and value your support.

Kind regards,
Madona Cole-Lacy
