Charity Work

Charity work is something that I wish I had more time for… shoot, spending more time with my son and wife is something I wish I had more time for.  Being an educator is something that I spend the majority of time doing… yes I get paid for it, but its something that I can do to leave the world a better place.  I feel good about myself and the work that I do when I go home at home at night, there’s always the wish that you could do more, but like the quote says: “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different, because I was important in the life of a child.”

Every now and again the family and I like to give back beyond what we normally do.  It never feels like a lot, and it definitely never feels like enough.  Yet, somehow giving back is never easy.  Someone is always too busy, or too tired or just not interested.  I want Jax to be a caring person.  I’d like to raise him to do his best for himself and for others and I know the best way to teach is to model.  So Saturday morning Jax and I took a ride down to Danbury Ambulance’s Annual “Stuff an Ambulance” event (which collects non-perishable foods and donations for The Dorothy Day House, The Women’s Shelter and The Food Pantry in Danbury.)

Now listen, I know the kid has no idea what was going on… I know all he was looking for was something to chew on… but it’s the point that we do these things together.  It’s being a family, who although not as much as we’d like, helps others.  Either way, it was nice to be able to help people in need.
