I have heard people say how collaboration is hard, or that it’s easier to just do it all yourself. While there might be some nuggets of truth in those statements, I have to say that I don’t truly believe it – or rather – I refuse to. Collaborating, in all its forms, was one of the most rewarding aspects of working on the BIG Day of Giving.
