Knowing You’re Not Alone
“Because I am lucky,” Jordan tells me. “Complete strangers have helped me out. I wanted to do the same for someone else.”
In Matt’s book, Jordan found an eerie mirror of his own journey.
“I know it can’t be the same, but it felt that way,” he says. In that mutual experience,there was the comfort crossing thousands of miles.
Through the phone, I hear Sawyer, eight months old, squealing. Jordan laughs lightly and assures me we are hearing happiness. From her tiny, distinct voice, I realize then the Foundation is not so much an entity as it is a collection of individuals. Individuals who know when life follows an illogical course, an unexpected generosity can help us find a stranger on a common journey.
This holiday season let your generosity shine through. Make a donation in someone’s name as a holiday gift or in memory of someone you love. A donation of $25, $50, $100 or even $250 will make a profound impact on someone’s life.
Give to the Liz Logelin Foundation.

Jordan’s story was told by Kate Erickson who lives and writes in NYC.
