Names in Stone or Love in Hearts
At eMite you will never see us naming buildings after people because they gave a bunch of money to a project. It is just not in our DNA. Giving is such a personal thing that is to be so richly honored and respected that putting one’s name on a building cheapens the gift. Our eMiters give their Mites because they love giving. That is the best! How can naming something or praising someone individually top the joyful, free will offering of people who truly want to impact their world and help others. Can’t be done.
Oh, there certainly are times to honor people that you love, and giving in their name or even honoring a life lived through memorial is a way of accomplishing that purpose. But from our standpoint, honoring with name in stone does nothing to benefit either the one giving or the one receiving the gift. If you want to accomplish something with your gift and make your lasting touch one of a life truly changed, we got a project for you! If you want to imprint love on someone’s heart and leave a lasting memorial that will touch lives for generations to come, eMite is your way to reach out. Give Your Mite!
