Why Cedar Lake?

How many requests do you receive from charities every month?  If you are like me, you have a number of letters from worthy organizations stacked up waiting for your time and attention, and the spring appeal from Cedar Lake may be in that pile!
This might seem like a funny way for a fundraiser to ask you for a gift – by discussing all the other great organizations competing for your attention!  At Cedar Lake, we understand that there is an infinite number of charities asking for your gifts – and a finite amount money to share.  That’s why the first thing we have to say is thank you.  Thank you for reading this newsletter, for letting us share the stories of the people in our care and the amazing staff who love them and provide an environment for people to thrive, not merely survive.  Thank you for being a part of the Cedar Lake family, for connecting to us in meaningful ways that enrich not only the lives of the people in our care, but we hope, your life as well.  Giving changes us.  Our hearts and minds grow and we see and feel more than we thought possible.  Our capacity to love stretches and the world really does change.
As you go through that pile of letters on your desk or counter, I hope you’ll take time to read the one from Cedar Lake.  When you do, you’ll learn about Charley.  You’ll find out how his world is bigger and better because of Cedar Lake, because of you.  So thank you. Thank you for reading Charley’s story and for letting us share our story, the story of Cedar Lake.  It’s an exciting one filled with love, joy, challenges, sorrow and hope.  A story made possible because of the love and generosity of donors like you.  You are part of our story and for that we are forever grateful.
