Moving forward in 2021


As I think about the mission of the 3rd Act to shine a spotlight on deserving individuals and organizations that are making a difference in this crazy world we find ourselves in, I feel the desire to kick it up a notch in 2021. Over the last seven or eight months, I believe we have started a good conversation about incredible people who are truly making a difference in the lives of others. This effort has been rewarding to me but I feel compelled to reach higher for more participation and explore whether a more targeted effort can bring greater benefits to those that need a helping hand. I thought it would be cool to provide a slide show of many of the great people I have worked with in 2020. Thank you. Thank you. For your help and support. Watch the slideshow mentioned in today's episodeThe pandemic shutdown and related issues have caused a multitude of problems across our country. And in many demographic groups, including the elderly military veterans folks suffering from mental illness and addiction, abused women, low-income parents that have lost their job and are struggling to feed their families.Students that have seen their schools closed. And don't have access to computers and online learning devices. These are just a few of the groups that are struggling to survive in today's environment.I think we started a good conversation about incredible people who are truly making a difference in the lives of others. This effort over the last seven to eight months has been very rewarding to me, but I feel compelled to reach higher for more participation and explore whether we can target or a more targeted effort can bring greater benefits to those that need our help.I believe strongly that after talking to so many fine people over the past eight months, that if you volunteer and are physically able to help others, the rewards are awesome. And you can see what you're doing is really making a difference.
