“Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” - Albert Einstein

Just for a moment, let’s be grateful to those that paved the road to where we are.

I am grateful for those who guaranteed my birth in a free country, those who won me the right to vote, to bear arms, to disagree publicly with my government, to choose my work or to stay home with my children.

I honor those who came before me to begin works of charity and organizations dedicated to human betterment, those who cure illness and those dare to blaze new and unknown trails.

They inspire me to ask what can I create and what I can give.

What can you give?
