“From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” ~ Arthur Ashe
I am a firm believer in giving back, paying it forward, doing good onto others daily.
It’s not about being a “good” person. It’s not about bragging to everyone for the deeds you have done.
It’s about what is right. What is deep in your heart?
We all want and need love. We all want to know that someone is thinking about us, looking out for us, caring for us when maybe we don’t even care for ourselves.
Investing in a life is the best investment you will ever make. The return is greater than any stock trade you can make. It is not a gamble, it’s a winning bet.
Whether life has given you lemons or lemonade, you should find a passion, find a person, an animal and do right by them simply because you can.
It’s not always monetary. If you don’t have money I can tell you first hand that rolling up your sleeves and investing your time or your labor or you’re lending your ear or a hug is the best charity you can put into the world.
The best thing about generosity is that it is contagious. Your good deed doesn’t go un-noticed. Besides the person or pet directly affected by your kindness I promise there is someone else who will notice your efforts; maybe a stranger, friend or family member. It’s a virus of love and it is infectious!
This story is living proof of that.
Owner of HPN, a supplement line that I admire for its mission, has stepped in to pledge to the Make a Wish Foundation of OC and the Inland Empire.
The pledge made by owner, Sean Torbati, is to raise 25k by the end of the year.
I saw this video and the great and touching story of the kids who are affected by this program.
Kids who get a wish granted often go on to live full lives. Is it the wish that kept them going? I’d like to think so!
I challenge all of you out there, and all my O.C. community members, my CRAVEPT family, my personal family and friends back home in Northern California….LET’S MAKE SURE HE REACHES THIS GOAL!
Every year I put on a charity event called “Push-ups for Charity.” We have sponsored different worthy causes over the year from donating to a recently disabled paraplegic who needed treatment to JDRF or Juvenile Diabetes Research.
This year I am so moved by the chance to help the children in our community; the innocent lives that deal with more than they should ever have to in a lifetime. For the parents struggling to see their children ill. We can never know this pain unless we have lived it.
Rally around me now and let’s get grant worthy wishes and light a fire of love and spread kindness to those all around us by sharing this message to everyone we come in contact with.
Please stay tuned for our event date and message us NOW to get involved. We will be taking sponsors and participants to help us raise money for this great cause.
“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is my favorite and the single most important video I may ever make. I hope you all can see how much this cause really means to me.
