THE STORY:


Thank you so much for the birthday love! 


The legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden said “You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” 


In honor of those who have mentored me, and on behalf of the numerous kids waiting for mentors in Los Angeles, I would like to ask for your help in raising $1000 for the Jewish Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Los Angeles. For two years, I have been a mentor for this amazing nine-year-old. Our relationship shines as an example of how the mentors I was and am so fortunate to know have impacted my life, and how, with just a bit of effort, we can pass along these lessons/values to help others achieve a higher potential. 


I ask for your help. Please donate ANY amount you are able to today, so JBBBSLA can continue to help the countless families and children.


Let's strive to view each day is a canvas waiting to be painted; an opportunity for love, for fun, for living, and for learning. Do you recognize that the way you think influences the way you feel, and the way you feel influences how you act? Then what is stopping you from thinking and acting BIG?

Sharing ourselves with others is one of life’s greatest gifts. As I’m sure Sean, JBBSLA mentors and mentees alike, and so many others of us would say, we are the luckiest to share your company! 12 months ago
