The First of Many
Posted on 28 November 2016
Dear YXU Community,
They say you can’t move on to what’s next before first acknowledging what is now. This week we are approaching the first of many milestones that this community will achieve, so we thought it’d be a good time to take a deep breath and celebrate just how far we’ve come together.
As you know, at YXU we believe in paying our community rent, and this week we are preparing to make our biggest investment yet. Our communities have shaped us, raised us, and strengthened us, and now it is our turn to return the favor. This week we will be investing over $500 back into the community through our month long partnership with Project Medishare for Haiti and our Cause of the Quarter Program.
Our greatest impact is felt not in our monetary investments though, but in our personal connections. This community, strengthened by its diversity and humility, now stretches across the world. We have planted the YXU flag at home in Ohio, in the heart of Texas, and even the other side of the world in Mali. Together we are creating a global arms race of goodwill, helping to build leaders and strengthen communities every step of the way.
This week marks the first in what we hope will be many milestones that we will all celebrate together. The impact that we are making in our communities is real, and will only continue to grow in time. Day in and day out we are all leaving our mark, and in the process inspiring others to do the same. We are so excited to see the future that we can build together, but first and foremost, we are thankful to be able to celebrate this moment with all of you.
-The YXU Team
