filling the gap

So many times I have said, when you see a need, fill it. That's exactly what Lacuna Giving Circle is. There was a need in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities and so a group of friends - a circle of interested API philanthropists, came together and formed Lacuna.

Lacuna, according to my Oxford dictionary, means an unfilled space or interval; a gap. The circle came together to fill a gap. What a great idea! They raise money, as I understand it, and then present grants to deserving API organizations. Their website (HERE) probably explains it better.
It's pretty hard to go it alone, so it's really great that this organization came into being.  They're only a few months old, and I'm sure they could use your support. Perhaps others could use this model too and help fill some other gaps.
