"Texans are generous by nature.  Philanthropy is in our DNA.  As First Lady, I look forward to working with all Texans to bring together the two things that I am most passionate about – Texas and philanthropy.  I like to call it “Texanthropy”.  Through my Texanthropy initiative, I will work with Texans all across our great state to help make a difference through service and volunteering.  I hope you will join me in elevating the importance of volunteerism and service to others.  With your help, I know we can work together to help enrich the lives of all Texans through Texanthropy.”

-- Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott
