As some of you may know, I am a man of meager means. Part of this is because of my NF, but part of it is also due to the way I’ve chosen to lead my life.
I live simply. I don’t need much and I am not a complainer. I have a firm faith in God, Country, and my fellow man. I don’t need a big house, a nice car, or perfect health because I have spent my life figuring out what is truly important: living comfortably within my means and enjoying the companionship of others.
But no matter how frugal I may be, sometimes even the simplest needs of the Just Ask! Foundation are beyond my ability to provide.
When people find this out, they often say “If only I knew you needed something, I might have been able to donate it to your cause!”
Like when I needed new shelves for my t-shirts, and my friend Lou Congelio helped me out by donating some really nice shelves he wasn’t using anymore. Sometimes it just works out that a particular company or individual happens to have exactly what I need.
So, if you happen to be one of those people or companies that is in a position where you are able to make a positive difference in someone else’s circumstances — or mine — I am asking you to please do so.
As you may know, a big part of Just Ask! happens via the Internet. It has truly opened the world to me. And now we have an online store!
I’ve always felt that life simply “comes at you” whether you are ready or not… and it’s how we react to life’s challenges that I believe is a person’s measure. For all you reading this that have helped others through volunteering or charitable donations, allow me to say “Thank You” on behalf of everyone that ever needed the help of their fellow human beings.
Now, go out and “Make it a Tremendous Day!”
