It Takes a Village

This week has been so rewarding because I have seen a number of examples of people sacrificing and working as a team for the betterment of everyone. First there was Angela and her friends doing the spin class together on Saturday. I believe whole heartedly that strong and positive fitness buddies help each person achieve new levels.

February 2012 – Helping Others

I want to use this month’s post to help a couple of friends with their fundraising efforts. The first is my friend and former boss Ted Pappas. He has spent the past month running from home to work and back to raise money for the wonderful kids at Stripling Elementary.

Philanthropy, Empathy and Spin for Kids

I want to be as objective as possible in writing this post. Not easy with a subject as deeply emotional as philanthropy can be. Yet, it is because of the propensity for heightened sentimental fervor about giving, that I must try to remain unbiased. Full disclosure, I was prompted to write this entry in response to our efforts to raise money for Spin for Kids over the past couple of months. Feel free to donate yourself after reading this.
