"Linda Smith embodies altruism and benevolence. Not only does she understand the importance of true generosity – “giving it all away and getting it all back again,” as David Green of Hobby Lobby puts it – but she lives it in her personal life.
I have known Linda for 30+ years, and have long admired her ability to generate passion for the causes she believes in simply by making us see the benefit of supporting them for the greater good of the community in which we live. It could be Opportunity Village, it could be support for developmentally disabled citizens at the legislature – whatever it might be, if Linda Smith believes in it, you can believe in it, too.
We at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School, where I work as director of development, had the pleasure of hearing Linda speak on the subject to successful fundraising – as well as share her life story – last fall. She was engaging and engrossing, and left all of our parents and donors wanting more. I would highly recommend Linda as a speaker, lecturer or moderator for anything having to do with fundraising, life skills, coaching or leadership."
