Finding your passion and giving back ❤

Finding your passion and giving back

Yesterday, the Clubhouse was full of the giving spirit on Giving Tuesday. We joined forces with Ann and Maya Tisdale to put a little orange under Christmas trees in northern Michigan to celebrate.

They are authors of Mighty Miss Maya — a story of building confidence and independence. Maya’s story inspires young and old and people of all needs and abilities. These are core values of Norte, and it was an honor to host her last night for a reading. If you missed it, check out the recording when you have a chance — the giggles at the beginning are worth it alone. ?

In the morning, Norte staff got busy wrapping for afternoon delivery of dozens of books. We dropped the orange packages off to three incredible community partners — Single MOMMBig Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Michigan, and Child and Family Services of Northwestern Michigan. Each organization will distribute to families in our community.

We invite you to join us in the season of giving. The need is great in northern Michigan, and there are many worthy efforts. The above organizations could use your help.

At Norte, we’re looking forward to closing the year ready for success in 2022. You can be part of that with a donation before the end of the year

In the spirit of Maya, Norte is helping people #Seeithenbeit. Norte moves people to experience their communities in new ways. And to give back. We do this with youth programs, community events and encouragement, and advocacy to help everyone keep moving and stay active.

Despite the uncertainty of the last 20 months, we are confident of one thing — Team Orange remains strong. In 2022, we will continue to build that strength to deliver on the promise of happy, healthy, strong communities.

Would you please join us in this effort and help make the magic of Norte happen for all?


We don’t spam, and we don’t share your contact info. However, we get excited about the fantastic people, places, and activities in Northern Michigan.
