That's too bad, Sally, it's a great community!

You'll find a Notification Settings and an Unsubscribe link at the bottom of the emails that'll turn them off for you.

Hey - the deadline's my birthday, so I felt that was a sign to send a shout out that I'm always looking to connect with new friends through the community. I specifically try to hunt down people who are also in Canada with health-related charities with dual-purpose roles like mine - my role is partly "support" and partly "revenue generating", so it's always interesting to speak to others who cross the lines, as well, so hoping to receive some new Friend invites!
