I ran across an article about passion on alltop.com under their nonprofit section. It went into detail about how people avoid the word passion when talking about philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. I found this quite upsetting; I feel that we must have passion in order to survive as leaders and helpers of nonprofits. I have a passion for nonprofits; I am in the nonprofit minor at NC State; that is what brought me here to TFS to be an intern. I love working here and being able to see the results of my work. This article reminded me to keep up my passion in what I do and not to let anyone tell me otherwise.
Be sure to check out the article here and keep your passion burning! There will also be two more blogs about passion on nonprofit.alltop.com coming up; don’t forget!
