Impact Maker Award | Modern Woodmen of America

Updated: Feb 26, 2020

The following note is from our newest Ambassador, Anna Viettry. We welcome her with open arms and love what she represents. Check out her wonderful note - and her tremendous donation to The Comfort Cub:

“I work for Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal financial services organization. What does that mean? Thanks for asking, it means we have a business model wrapped around benefitting our members and community through financial planning, service, and putting a percentage of what we make into the community in order for it to flourish.

I was awarded by my company the Impact Maker Award for impacting my community for the year. The award came with a check that I could grant to my choice of charity - and here we are, The Comfort Cub.

I came across the Comfort Cub through Susan H., who was in my networking group and I was touched by the mission she shared with me.

My personal mission is to relieve the financial and emotional chip on people’s shoulders. Due to my line of work, I work with planning families’ financial futures and making adjustments when “life happens”- and loss, unfortunately, is an event we experience in our lives whether it’s a person we love, a pet we adored, and/or a dream we have put to the side. It goes even greater to comfort those who feel lost, anxious, or belonging. So it is such an amazing resource that I can support the people I know both professionally and personally more by giving them a comfort cub in a time of grief.

There is a level of planning and objective thinking we need to do, and I know that there is also a physical and physiological process to grief and our emotional anxieties that give us comfort. I joyfully present and support the Comfort Cub through this check, spreading awareness, and other ways I can help because of the impact they make both outside of my sphere of influence and those who are near and dear to my heart”
