Day 155: Carol

Day 155-2Earlier this week I mentioned that Street Sense held their 6th annual Excellence in Journalism Awards. Securing sponsorship for these events is essential to their success. The entire evening wouldn’t have been possible without a generous donation made by the law firm WilmerHale – they provided the space and catering for the event. My fellow Street Sense Board Member, and employee of WilmerHale, Liz Canizares informed me that their Partner-in-Charge, Carol Clayton, was the one who gave us permission to use their facility. Thank you Carol!

Day 155

Dear Carol,

Thank you so much for generously hosting Street Sense’s 2015 Excellence in Journalism Awards in your beautiful Pennsylvania Ave. office building on June 2nd. As a member of the Board of Directors, I know how much it means for us to have access to such premium space for this event. Patrick McCahan, Jaclyn Culler and Mike (audio/video) were outstanding – I hope that you will share our sincere appreciation with each of them as well as the others who helped make the evening such a success.

With sincere gratitude,
Reed Sandridge

Day 12: Lieu

Lieu-2Good morning! If you’re waking up in the Northeast it’s probably a bit nasty outside. We’ve got some icy conditions here in DC. Be careful.

Today’s letter is to a wonderful woman who does some work for me from time to time. Originally from Vietnam, she’s lived in the Washington area for almost 40 years. She is tiny, probably about 5 feet tall, but her heart is enormous. She’s always doing small acts of kindness – like last week she brought me the most delicious blueberry muffins and some oranges along with a handwritten note. Thank you Lieu!



Thank you so much for the delicious blueberry muffins and clementine oranges – you are so thoughtful. Please know how much I appreciate you and the kind, cheerful manner in which you always carry yourself. I’m always happier after seeing you or speaking with you on the phone.

With much gratitude,
