With the greatest friends -- we celebrated Holidays on a High Note! At the Menlo Circus Club, we had lunch that supported Peninsula Family Services.

PFS supports more than 10,000 men, women and children, helping provide financial stability, health and strength for their families. They provide after school tutoring, Financial Literacy and Savings Programs, counseling, shelter programs... all of these small but really large-- ways of supporting people through....

This beautiful thing called life.

And we all help each other.

Below with some of the people I love and who help me:  
Me, Clalia, new friend Christina, and my cherished friends Lisa Cavezza
and Nicole Douglas

If you'd like to support similar projects, why not support some great giving and volunteering projects!!

I have some exciting news I want to share with you!!

Last year, Arianna Huffington published a new book, Thrive. In it, she compiles her insights on how to live a life of giving, gratitude, and joy and how to create meaning in one's life.

And UniversalGiving is mentioned in the giving section on page 278! There are only 6-7 organizations mentioned, including my former organization VolunteerMatch, and UniversalGiving! How grateful I am for our hardworking team (and to Arianna Huffington!)

Onwards-- and upwards we go!
