My Causes: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is one of the most amazing organizations, and I am so honored to be a part of their family. I have learned so much from the brave kids I have met over the years.
One of the biggest impacts came from a beautiful young girl named Ali Mills. She taught me more in our brief time together than almost anyone else in my life. We lost Ali, but her words and wisdom live on forever. Here's a sample:
The love is all around us
It is everywhere that we are
You can't hold it in your hand
Because it will fly away
But God gave love wings
So it can fly
And fill up the sky
And all the spaces
Love is all around us
- Ali Mills, 2001
If you want to be truly touched by the work they do for kids battling cancer, check out St. Jude's on the web.
As part of the bigger picture behind this site, I want to use our shared interests to begin a conversation. It is my hope that this exchange will transcend various, compelling, and -- what I consider to be -- important philanthropies.
I encourage you to educate yourself on these causes which are of great importance to me, and please feel free to share your important cause with me in return.
