EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS
Here is the good news. The Rosie O'Grady's raffle to have dinner with me raised $1,021. That means a kid involved with Make a Wish can go to Disneyland or wherever he or she wants to go. That makes me feel good because I often feel that I am a nobody who is lucky enough to say what I feel in front of you.
And for some reason some of you listen.
The bad news is someone actually has to go to dinner with me.
But seriously folks things like this make me feel good. I love being able to help people out even if it is as small as speaking to their school or giving career advice to a high school or college students. I simply believe we should help whenever or however we can.
I've been approached by Bloomfield Ford on Telegraph about helping them with a golf tournament to raise money for several local charities. They seem sincere and this might be a long standing relationship unless of course they wake up and realize I am a nobody.
During the holidays I take Celine and Little B shopping to buy things for kids who need a Christmas. Little B is just starting to understand why we do this. Celine now reminds me that it is time to buy for the "poor kids" when the holidays roll around. When they are old enough I would love to take them to a soup kitchen so they can see the help others need.
When the people at Rosie's approached me a few weeks ago about raising money for this worthy cause I thought they were nuts. I was just hoping to raise enough for the main course.
This far exceeds my expectations and I am glad it worked out.
