 National, Local and Community Philanthropy- Investing Time, Talent & Treasure featured on the U-T “Community Spotlight” Radio show:

Last week, San Diego celebrated National Philanthropy Day honoring so many exceptional people and organizations focused on bettering our community, & working to make us America’s Finest and Kindest City. Mission Fed was proud to be honored last year, privileged to sponsor the event this year, and I was personally humbled to serve on this year’s NPD honorary committee to help select this year’s most deserving nominees. A hearty congrats to all!

Together we can make a difference of consequence.

Here is an interview on the U-T Community Spotlight Radio Show with yours truly: http://wsradio.com/102414/

On Seizing Life While We Still Have it:

Our time is precious especially when we realize how little time we have to live…

Divergent v. Creative Thinkers:

The Beginner’s mind is full of unlimited possibilities. The Expert’s mind knows only one right answer…

Don’t grow out of your creative spirit! Creativity is the genetic code of education.

On a lighter note: Wheels of Impressions with Kevin Spacey

A little post Halloween treat!

WHAT IF…the most important factor to your happiness is not what you might think?

RESEARCH SAYS: A recent study reveals that the happiest people (10 on a 10 point scale) did not report the highest levels of income and education. That’s right. 10s earned significantly less money and had lower educational achievements than their moderately happy counterparts (8 or 9 on the 10-point scale). What set the happiest individuals apart from the rest was they engaged more often in volunteer activities and maintained more stable relationships.

Service and love. That’s what really matters.

TRY THIS: Volunteer for a cause that you are passionate about for at least 3 hours this week. Better yet, do it with someone you love. How did it make you feel?

Share your results on our Facebook page.

Animals at the Vet:

Some of the places the animals “hide” due to white coat hypertension.

While we have all had the feeling, their expressions are priceless!
