I received an email from my sister today who lives in Mexico passing on some news concerning a friend in Toronto that was doing some good. This is what I love about social media. Giving gets all the way around the world through our friends, family and social media relationships.
My friend Mitch Korman is the perfect example of Facebook put to great use. Mitch is the kind of person that he can travel almost anywhere in the world and will know not only 1 person but 10. I first met Mitch doing what he is so good doing – giving. Mitch was a long time volunteer with an organization I used to work with called Second Harvest. He would work tirelessly for an entire weekend every year on an event called Toronto Taste, which still runs to this day, and has raised millions of dollars for Second Harvest.
We became fast friends and today I was informed he is still continuing his hard work to help others. This time his is Bowling for Dollars!
Give 155: Day 155
I made a donation today to my friend Mitch which in turn will support Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Toronto. It felt especially good as I happen to be the final donation that obtained Mitch’s goal of $1000. Way to go Mitch!
The event is called Bowl for Kids Sake. Mitch has recently become a new Dad and I can understand why this charity is close to his heart. There are so many children that need positive mentors in their life. Since Mitch and I are both fairly new parents there is nothing we would want more for our children and every child, than a positive strong influence in their lives.
Mitch, you are a long time friend and I am so honoured to call you that. You are so generous to so many and I wish you all the best today for your big event. Most of all have fun!
There are events all over the world you can get involved in. All you have to do is ask and you will be amazed how much support you will get from your family and friends.
