We’ve made it! We are at the last word in the mission of F.I.A.T.M., Family Is All That Matters. We took a deep dive into what family is and isn’t. We poked a little fun at the word is. I encourage you to take a look at the posts about All and That. Today we are delving into Matters.
Matters is defined as to be of importance. Sit with that for a moment. At F.I.A.T.M. we can rephrase it, for context, as Family Is All That Is Of Importance to us. I’ve been privy to conversations and discussions that didn’t fully meet the standard of expressing Family Is All That Matters. As a result, the idea or campaign was shot down. Sometimes when you are aspirational it can be very challenging. Receiving calls that part of the family is hurting is taken personally. In addition, hearing of unmet needs in the community keeps us up at night. This is why we need help and support. This is why we are becoming bolder and stronger with asking for help and support. This is why we are increasing and improving our messaging.
All of our communication is designed to inform you of what we are doing, who we are doing it to, why we are doing it and how you can become involved in helping us help more families. With that in mind, I’m asking that the next time you are in a conversation and someone expresses wanting to help and support those that help and support others, you can now feel comfortable reaching out to me.
