What If By Erich Mische

In my nearly 11 years as Executive Director of Spare Key there was no single accomplishment of this organization that belongs to any single individual. It was the combined effort of a dedicated staff, a remarkable Board of Directors, generous donors, kind volunteers and the never-ending commitment to the families we serve and seek to serve to ask the question "What if?" When I became Executive Director I had zero experience running a non-profit. What I had, though, was a community of people and organizations who stood with me, by me and behind me to focus on answering the "What if?" questions with real and tangible efforts to help families facing a medical crisis "Be Seen. Be Heard. Be Found." by donors throughout the country to help them pay their bills. Sarah Putnam, Spare Key's current Chief Marketing Officer, will become the next Executive Director on November 1st. She will bring to the organization a level of passion, commitment and vision that I simply cannot wait to see put into action with the same kind of help and support I received nearly 11 years ago from a dedicated staff, a remarkable Board of Directors, generous donors, kind volunteers and the never-ending commitment to the families we serve and seek to serve by asking the question "What if?"

Donors on Help Me Bounce

Meeting with families that shared their story on Help Me Bounce is so incredibly inspiring. Hearing these families explain what Help Me Bounce meant to them while they were facing the unimaginable is humbling. We are SO much more than a place to donate. We give families a place to share their story. We give them one centralized location to tell their friends, family, and network what they are facing and where they need help. Further, we give these families a space to be discovered by donors across the nation they don’t personally know who still want to help. These donors are SO incredibly important to families facing the unknown. Read on to hear first-hand how important these donors were to the Peterson Family from Luck, Wisconsin.
