Ethical Storytelling Guidelines: I Wish I Would've Known…

Date: March 25, 2023

"I wish I would have known."  Does that sound familiar?  Good intentions don't always equal good outcomes.  Some of my best-intended actions have gone poorly because I wasn't properly informed.  I wish I would have known then what I know now.

So it goes with telling the stories of those we help.  Stories are sacred.  They change lives, inspire people to give, and others to act.  We mean to motivate and encourage through them, yet if not approached properly, we can cause more damage than good.  If we don't use proper caution and ensure our entire organization does the same, we could dishonor the very ones we are trying to honor.  We could even end up with a lawsuit.
