Wow! Has it really only been 365 days? It truly has felt like a life time, nearly 40 people have pledged allegiance to our mission and goals but ended up turning their backs on us because we wouldn't change into "their" perception of what they thought we should be. There have been professionals who have received the highest honors in their profession that have disguised themselves as allies but their true motives were uncovered, in just one year we have requested more than $500 million in grants, we've hosted more than events, spent nearly $20,000.00 working to fulfill the plans of the organization, received denial after denial, everything that could go wrong, all went wrong in year 1. We became a 501(c)(3) organization in our first 6 months. We've had some successes and we've had some failures. It was once reported that 90% of Non-Profits fail in their first year, I'm glad to say WE MADE IT. The greatest thing about year one is, we connected with nearly 10,000 people. Nearly 80% of those 10,000 people stay connected via our website or our social media outlets. To the Board of Directors, we honor you today for your hard work, to the Executive Team we honor you today as well. Happy Anniversary to us all. This Anniversary is for those that stood through the tests of time, those who didn't give up on us, those that believed when believing seemed outrageous, we thank you. Next step on our agenda is to move into our office, and we believe God that it's gonna happen, and we won't stress it, God didn't bring us this far to leave us. Happy Anniversary to The Fighting Fathers Initiative Inc.
