We appreciate your interest in supporting our goal of raising funds in memory of Beanie Smelstoys Bird and her amazing legacy of giving back. Each year since her passing, Beanie's friends and family have continued to share her heart by supporting charities that reflect her example. This year, Beanie's friends and family have chosen Community Collaboration of Delaware as their charity of choice to support, and we are truly honored to have been selected to participate in this awesome fundraiser. For those of you who did not have the opportunity to meet the wonderful Beanie Bird, we'd like to share a little about her life of purpose. Beanie, who grew up in Delaware, was an avid community supporter, giving generously monetarily and with her time. It was during her time in the First State that Beanie first learned to invest in those around her and she applied those lessons the rest of her life.
Throughout both her professional career and private life, Beanie was passionate about helping other people succeed. From helping pack backpacks for local, school-aged children and preparing and delivering meals to the homeless, to helping donors find charities that met their interest in her last job as the manager of Fidelity Charitable in Cary, NC, Beanie always did her part to try and make our world a better place. For Beanie’s birthday, June 29th, our goal is to fundraise $5400 by August 1st to honor what would have been her 54th year. We hope that you will join us in sharing her legacy of giving back wide as we think pink and remember our dear friend, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and mentor, Beanie Bird.
Thank you for your support!! #ThinkPink #CCDcares
