As reported in the Denver Post, this kid has the right idea of networking:
Marisol Tanguma is a little girl with a big heart who understands the power of networking.
On Tuesday, Courtney Tanguma, 4-year-old Marisol’s mother, told the Castle Rock preschooler that the Denver Rescue Mission was in need of donated turkeys to feed homeless people. “I asked her how many turkeys she thought we should buy for the rescue mission,” Courtney remembered.
When Marisol replied 50, her mother laughed and said, “We can’t afford 50 turkeys.”
“Mommy, you know we have lots of friends,” Marisol replied.
It was about noon when she and Marisol began e-mailing friends and relatives asking them to contribute what they could toward “Mari’s great turkey mission.”
By 4 p.m. they had pledges of $445.
Marisol and her mother drove 50 turkeys to the Denver Rescue Mission.
Happy Thanksgiving, Marisol.
