A few hours ago, I held our weekly volunteer call, where anyone who signed up in the last week to volunteer jumps on to receive their first communication from the campaign.
We do a little roll call at the top where people tell us who they are and where they’re from. We randomly call on folks, and tonight we called on Shira.
Me: Hi! Who are you and where are you from?
::Tiny (obviously childlike) voice pipes up:: I’m Shira!
Me: Hi Shira! Where are you from?
Tiny person: Philly!
Me (starting to get the picture here): Howwww old are you, Shira?
Tiny person: SIX!
Me: Awesome, Shira! Thanks for joining! Go out there and make some calls, okay?
::Whispered voice from parental figure:: Tell her okay…
Tiny person: OKAY!
So keep going this week for Shira, our newest little supporter. :)
