Thank You for the Rejection

To Whom it may concern, I wanted to take the time to thank you for the rejection letter that you sent regarding a grant for my autism awareness organization. While it may seem strange to have someone thank you for NOT doing something, your denial is my motivation. Yes, initially I was a little bummed out. I mean "rejection" is something I think about in a dating situation. Being rejected by THAT guy. I was even a little perturbed by the go-to statement about the "other" parents with special needs children who cosigned on your rejection. Your determination that there are other organizations out there doing the exact same thing without acknowledging the WAIT LISTS for those organizations. It takes about 6-12 months just to have your application processed or to receive services. In fact, we need more organizations to serve the 3 million plus people who are diagnosed with autism.
But I slowly began to see how this may be a blessing in disguise. I am more determined now than ever to press forward. YOU have lit a fire under me that has given me a new purpose. So, with all sincerity, thank you Pollination Project! I am truly in your debt ( seriously)!
