Beautiful News | a site that only publishes data visualizations of good news.

Semantics: words and effort matter | This news comes from an LNP – Always Lancaster municipal brief about the Garden Spot Fire Rescue‘s fund raising efforts. “Daryl Groff, development director, reported on fundraising efforts for the fire company. His 200 visits to businesses during one year on the job resulted in $65,800 of investments plus an additional three-year commitment of $197,400. He said ‘investment’ replaces the word donation because businesses and citizens are financially investing in their community fire company.” [NOTE: While this article says the department’s changed the word to investment, the department’s Website still says “donations.”]
