A Giving Haiku

April is National Poetry Month, and April 17 is International Haiku Poetry Day. As part of this issue’s focus on hope and renewal, we’d like to celebrate philanthropy with this unique poetry style in a giving haiku, and hopefully bring some smiles. Thank you for all you do for the community.
