"Carry out random acts of kindness, with no expectation of reward. Safe in the knowledge that one day, someone may do the same for you"
I have for as long as I could remember, been a caregiver to those around me. I took care of my little sister, helped out my mom and took care of my family until finally moving out of our home at the tender age of…. 33 years old. There is very little that I wouldn't do for my family, and those that I love BUT, I grew up understanding that I also had to be giving and kind to those I would encounter on a day to day. The notion that a small act of kindness and a little compassion could help change the world resonated for as long as I could remember!!!
I have always been active in the community,with countless volunteer hours and donations made throughout the years. As a matter of fact, I made my first personal donation when I started working at 13 years old. Since then, I have charities that I annually make an effort to support by donating and fundraising for. In 2014, I have donated to many charities and funds, but my main Fundraising efforts are for the following causes:
The Jerome Quan Kick Cancer Fund, benefiting my friend Jerome Quan’s battle against bone cancer.
The Tunnel To Towers Foundation NYC Run/Walk, benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation who supports programs such as Building for America’s Bravest.
The Long Beach Polar Bear’s Superbowl Plunge, benefiting The Make A Wish Foundation of Metro NY
Polar Bear's Fundraising Page Coming Soon!
My Facebook wall will be full of pleas from me, asking those that know me to donate. I will also continue to ask my friends and family to support till I’m blue in the face (Like my profile picture!!!) But I have no shame when the three causes I mentioned above will benefit from my hard work.
Thanks for reading! Happy fundraising & donating!!!
