Raiders Of The Lost Badges: Side Quest!

Do you see that?

Probably not .. because our Community is full of NINJAS now!

Give a big ol' "Congrats on becoming a Community Ninja in the Blackbaud Community that is awesome and also... goals!" to our new ninjas:


Each of them completed all of the Badge Quest challenges! 

We want to congratulate one particular ninja for winning Badge Quest 2: Fellowship of the Badges. Congratulations to Ninja, Susan Chomsky! She won last month's $100 Amazon gift card.

If you want to join the Ninja ranks - all you have to do is complete Badge Quest One, Two, and Three. Right now, you can still be entered to win a $100 gift card for Badge Quest Three (where allowed by law.) 

Alright Badge Questers, time for a SIDE QUEST!

Since this is one of the last side quests, I'm going to make it a hefty one by giving away 100 Community Bonus points. 

By now, you've made dozens of new connections in Community (if not more, y'all rock!) -- for this side quest, reach out to one of your new friends in Community by posting on their wall or PM'ing them and ask them this question....

"What is your favorite inspirational quote or what is the best piece of nonprofit advice anyone has given you?"

Come back to this page and write what they say in the comments below! Example: "Sunshine Watson said her favorite inspirational quote is _____." 

Let's continue to use this Community to inspire each other! I'm looking forward to reading the responses as I love to collect great advice and good quotes.

Ready, set... BADGE QUEST!

Best piece of nonprofit advice:  Just because we are a nonprofit doesn't mean we aren't suppose to make a profit!

Best advice was "You cant help everyone so just start with the person in front of you and move on to the next" My Dad

I tagged Kierstin Sykes and her reply was that a donor had visited her development team and commented that he would like to see them stop spending money on chotskies at events - he'd rather see the money spent on their stated cause.  (Am I supposed to quote her exactly?) I have actually heard this same comment from some of our donors when we send them calendars!

Pattie Hommes said: My favorite quote comes from Martin Luther King and is so relevant these days! "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend"

So true, and so relevant!

Kaleb Miller had a wonderful quote and some great advice as well, definitely share-worthy!
"I would have to say that my favorite quote is one by Anne Frank- "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."  Isn't that incredibly encouraging? 
This kind of ties in to the best piece of advice I've received, which is to never be afraid to think bigger than you already are. Though it may be a risk, we should never hesitate to challenge our circumstances and think outside the box to move forward. Whether it's making a bigger ask, setting a bigger goal, or even making bigger personal goals, we shouldn't fear shooting for the stars!"

David Grayson's inspirational quote is, "if everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough." - Mario Andretti   

Definitely made me laugh, mostly because there is a lot of truth to it.

Shannon Emery's favorite inspirational quote is from herGrams: "Life is hard, life is short, but girl, life is oh so sweet." :up:

Shannon Emery said "This one comes from my Dad and my baseline motto: "Be happy. Nothing else matters at the end of the day. Be happy." "
Great advice!
