My thoughts on GIVING…

Ever since I was a young child I have wanted to be a “Benefactress.”

The Latin roots of benefactress are bene, which means "well," and facere, which means "to do" — literally, "to do well." A benefactress does well by supporting (usually financially) a person or a good cause.

I was inspired to do this by the ever popular
“Starfish Story”
An old man had a habit of early walks on the beach. One day, after a storm, he saw a figure in the distance moving like a dancer. As he came closer he saw that is was a young woman and she was not dancing but was reaching down in the sand, picking up starfish and very gently throwing them into the ocean.
“Young lady,” he asked. “Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?”
“The sun is up and the tide is going out and if I don’t do it they will die.”
“But young lady, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it? You can’t possibly make a difference.”
The young woman listened politely, paused and then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves, saying, “I made a difference for that one!”

My personal and business philosophy is to lend support, especially financial support, to causes throughout our community focusing on those that I am passionate about.
They are listed below and with every transaction I am committed to making a donation in the name of my clients. If there is a cause that you are passionate about and it’s not listed here, please let me know and we can do great things together!
