To help do my part during the pandemic, I created a nonprofit where I give 10% of my earnings to charitable causes that are meaningful to me. When I caddie, I help golfers carry bags, select clubs, find golf balls and read putts. In return, I get paid for my hard work and spend time with great people. Then I donate a percentage of my earnings (plus any donations) to charity. And collectively, we are spreading kindness.
Eleven seconds was all it took. Eleven seconds to stop cold a shining career scarcely before it had taken off on the ice. Travis Roy was a promising 20-year-old hockey star. Then moments into his first collegiate game as a Boston University freshman, a freak accident drove Travis into the boards. A cracked fourth vertebra left him paralyzed from the neck down.
Christine was my mom's best friend from high school. She was murdered at the age of 48. On March 9, 2018, on her day off, Christine, the Executive Director, visited The Pathway Home (a residential treatment program for veterans) in Yountville, CA to attend a goodbye party for coworkers. A disturbed former patient entered the party and released everyone but Christine and two staff members. Soon after, he killed the three women and then the gunman took his own life. The killings deeply shook those associated with the program, the VA and the larger community. Christine had brightened so many lives. And so this memorial foundation makes it its mission to keep her causes alive and her bright light shining for years to come.
