Often it feels better to give than to receive. I learned about community service when I was in high school and feeling like “I can make a difference in the world” was a lesson I took with me into my adult years. Just a few simple examples that included spending Thanksgiving morning with my father feeding the homeless at the local soup kitchen, or community service hours spent with the hearing impaired had a tremendous impact on me. I try to include philanthropy in my work and personal life.
I try to remember it’s not always about ME, rather how can I best serve YOU!
We may be suffering from an obesity epidemic in this country, but at the same time we also have a disproportionate amount of people who suffer from hunger in our own country as well as globally. Everyone has a right to access fresh, healthy food.
