Charity Begins At Home
This year I'm committing to giving back to all of the communities in need around the country. Over a year ago, Long Island was slammed by Hurricane Sandy that left my family and entire neighborhood devastated. The home I grew up in and built memories was majorly destroyed in an instant. My senior parents watched as their memories washed away from the floods and destroyed their entire first floor. It was saddening to watch an entire community lose everything in the flood.
Our entire community bonded together and began helping one another with labor and love. A weekend of flooding and devastation was soon turning into a community of pride and support. The work is not over and many are still working on rebuilding their homes.
During this time of devastation and grief, I got a call from Dave Deschenes from the Ironman Foundation offering support. The financial support from Ironman was received within two days and went directly into the fund to support our local community members in need. Since that day, I made a commitment to support the goals of the Ironman Foundation which in turn is helping so many communities around the country. Charity truly does begin at home! Join my cause and give back to the foundation that has no boundaries and helps out small communities like ours!! Help me reach my goal--
