SKIN OF STEEL NFP
August 13, 2013

Skin of Steel was started by one woman and her friends. It is the perfect example of how a few people can change the world -- except the world isn't changed yet. We need more friends.

The goal of Skin of Steel is to increase patient options and improve care for melanoma patients. Best way to do this is by establishing a tissue bank where information is shared (unlike the traditional way of doing business) and where researchers will be able to turn when they need fresh tissue.

So far we have got Northwestern University's Lurie Center signed on, and multiple others are in the works. This is a huge success in the making which needs more funding to be a reality.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add a terrific development person to the Board so that we can deliver on the promise that a tissue bank holds for patients with melanoma, and their families.

FAITH IN PLACE
July 14, 2012

I became involved in Faith in Place because of the basic reasonableness of the leadership and staff I met at a workshop. Aggressively inclusive, practical and smart, fun, hopeful, yet serious about the huge amount of work that needs to be done if we are going to care successfully for our world -- this is an organization that is always a pleasure to be part of. Impeccable integrity is also a pretty great trait. Though the depth of knowledge and care is impressive, my experience is that Faith in Place organizers are really good at meeting people where we are and inviting us to join together in whatever attempts we can make on environmental issues. This is community-building at its best. While some worthy nonprofits suck energy out of us Faith in Place is the opposite - providing sustenance and cheer in the midst of many difficult challenges. For this I am grateful, and heartily recommend them.
