"It's Today!"

The Erie Community Foundation is an entity set up to invest in local charities and non-profit organizations. Every year they designate a day where they match gifts of $25 or more that are donated. It's called "Erie Gives." Of course all the local charities advertise however they can to try to get as many donations as possible that day because the donations double.

In a couple of other blogs I've quoted signs that I've seen on my way to work. The sign I've quoted most is in front of The Regional Cancer Center, a local non-profit organization.

The other day on my way to work the sign read, "It's Today!" I thought to myself, how cool is that?! It doesn't say much yet it says everything. Celebrate today. Be conscious. Be present. Don't dwell on the past, it's over. Don't worry about the future, it's not here yet. It's today. Let's just be here now and celebrate that. That's where my mind went.

I eventually realized what they were REALLY saying. It was Erie Gives day. They wanted to remind people that "It's Today" so they would hopefully donate to their cause.
