As Mercy Corps' database manager, I get to see lots of different names and gifts go by in my work, making sure our supporter records are all correct. While I'm very behind-the-scenes here, I am always excited about getting to pull together a mailing list to send out an emergency update, or help to report on our success raising money for a specific project or program. And I help all our staff here use our database well, so we are spot-on in all our contacts with donors and supporters of Mercy Corps.
I'm always touched by how many folks support our work — from all over the United States, and all over the world. The diversity of your names and gifts is astounding. It's an honor, and a reminder about how many people share our passion for ending poverty and helping those who have been struck by disaster or are caught in the midst of war.
So thank you! It's very inspiring.
