Looking back...and ahead!

Dear Friends,
Thanks to your support, 2017 has been an amazing year! We are having a blast spreading the Neighboring Movement! Enclosed is a recap of some of the projects we’ve been working on. 

More than anything we have been blown away by the need for neighboring. Consider these two statistics:

26% increase.png
72% lonely.png

As an organization, we’ve committed ourselves to ending loneliness by advocating for a Neighboring Movement that has an exponential life. As we have reflected on our work we have identified 3 strategic steps:

  1. Discover: Everyday we meet amazing people who are using neighboring to influence the world in positive ways. Through networking and research, we are learning the best principles that define the Movement. 
  2. Experiment: Our work is rooted in the SoCe Neighborhood of Wichita KS. This is our learning lab and we believe staying deeply committed to our actual neighbors gives our work integrity.
  3. Share: We are developing educational tools that can increase neighboring and provide a sustainable income for our organization. This work has already begun and has shown early promise for hitting our goals. 

Here is how you can help. Dec. 4-8 we will use Facebook Live to host an online fundraising campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to combat loneliness! You can contribute by making a donation in advance; send your gift to 417 E. Gilbert, Wichita, KS 67211 or make a donation online at neighboringmovement.org/donate. Your advanced giving will help us set the tone for the live campaign and we appreciate your effort to help us hit our goal.  

If you’d like to have a further conversation about how to contribute to the Neighboring Movement contact me at adam@neighboringmovement.org or give me a call at 316-285-7799. 
Thanks again for helping us end loneliness by being good neighbors!
