Inspiring Words

Late in 2019 Words That Carry On asked well-known people to share writings and words that have helped, motivated and inspired them. Some very wonderful, very busy people took the time to contribute. 

We auctioned their Inspiring Words in November 2020. If you are good at online auctioning this is a great way to raise money.
