Please share with us what you think is needed to support angels and donors related to encouraging Major Charitable Giving. From the philanthropic perspective how can others help you achieve your philanthropic and personal objectives?
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
The first step is to get acquainted by participating in one of the Friendship Archway community building programs in downtown DC. Come and meet the volunteers who have pioneered this program since 1997 in Washington D.C. This ongoing outreach event is to bring people of diverse backgrounds together as a first step to get acquainted to explore possibilities for working together harmoniously with appreciation, forgiveness and understanding. These monthly community events provide opportunities to develop new community contacts and to connect with others interested in similar topics. Please introduce yourself to the co-organizers and attend a followup small group meeting for the area of your interest at the Capital Professional Center, 2423 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, first floor conference room, Wash. DC 20037. Confirm time and date (202) 496-1555 and email@example.com
WHEN: 12:30PM TO 2:30PM on the third Sundays of each month for community networking. 2:30PM to 5PM "Happy Hour" with appreciations.
AGENDA: Networking conversations over lunch with others at your table. When people have arrived, there will be a round of self-introductions, followed by interpersonal networking.
Save the third Sundays and 4th Sundays of each month for connecting with people actively engaged in building a beautiful community in the Wash. DC area.
We welcome visitors, volunteers, investors and others to come to make new contacts, develop new friendships and build community Spirit with us.
This event is about initial face-to-face networking conversations over lunch (self-pay). Then we can schedule followup small focus group meetings related to different aspects of Major Giving initiatives with suitable candidates. Benefits may include access to "AppreciationZone" (tm) exclusive facilities, resources and related services provided by co-sponsors. Because we focus on solutions, we begin with a series of conversations for possibilities. This is a good opportunity to engage in conversations for friendship with people interested in Major Giving, donors as well as people who work professionally in this area. Building broad community support includes staying in touch with business owners, organizers, Chinese and Asian leaders, clients, community investors and others interested in developing new services, resources, programs and providing mutual support to solve major social and economic problems. Enjoy networking conversations over lunch in a friendly context. Have fun! Share your good sense of humor! (admission $5 donation; self-pay for food you order.)
Become a founding member in a Major Giving project! Help shift the mental focus to what we want and what we appreciate in the world and in our lives. Come and build with a mutual support group for those involved in Major Charitable Giving efforts.
Share your thoughts about the proposed intention in the message board here (tab is near top of page). The following intention was adapted from A Course In Miracles, acim text 28.18 adapted:
"We are here only to be truly helpful. We are here to represent Source Who sent us. We do not have to worry about what to say or what to do because Source Who sent us will direct us. We are content to be wherever Source wishes knowing Source goes there with us. We will be healed as we let Source teach us to heal." (If you prefer, you can substitute the word Source with the word God or my Friend.)
If you want to join the Allies Team of volunteer community builders who help to produce the 3rd Sunday networking event, come to help at 11:30AM. The general public comes from 12:30PM to 2:30PM.

The logo is an image for our approach as ABC allies, being friends and allies in action. Notice at the base level of the Friendship Archway monument, the position of the feet of the structure touching the earth may be at different locations, however when both sides move upward we can connect at a higher spiritual level of awareness of our shared interests and common stake as members of one human family. All of us share a common stake in peace on earth, wellness, friendship and other beautiful aspirations for humanity.
This strong visual image and a physical structure and monument was erected at 7th and H streets, Wash. D.C. in 1986. ABC allies called for and helped to develop this structure in Washington D.C. next to the Gallery Place Chinatown subway station (red, yellow,green lines). It is the only monument in Wash. DC that looks to the future rather than the past. We called this monument, the "Friendship Archway."
We hold in mind joy, friendship and prosperity for our human family. Together we are building a friendlier and happier local and global community by extending joy and friendship through providing free opportunities to connect with like-minded people on 3rd Sundays of each month in D.C. and by providing online spaces for your creative expressions of appreciations. Thank you for your support! We welcome you to share your thoughts with us at the Message Board of this group here (left column). We look forward to meeting you in person either at the 3rd Sundays get-togethers! You are blessed with infinite awareness! You are a Being of Love, Joy and Light!
