I’ve spent a great deal of time these past six months reflecting on how to best honor Laura’s legacy. I’ve also done a considerable amount of inner reflection on how I can take my experience and turn it into something positive. I’ve been an Ad-man for over 20 years now, and while it was something I’ve enjoyed, I realized it was never fulfilling. It never had a purpose or served a higher calling.
At the end of the day, I want to look back and know that I made a difference. That difference is a non-profit organization that will specifically help families dealing with cancer.
After a considerable amount of soul searching, I realized I wanted to share my One great day with others. Everyone should have at least one great day, a day to bond with their family and cast aside their worries.
The mission of The December 5th Fund is to give back a day without worry, a day without the typical burdens that many take for granted. My organization will help families create memories that last a lifetime, long after the burden of cancer is gone. Whether it’s a day fishing while bonding over small talk, or an elaborate adventure throughout the city, my organization will make sure it’s nothing short of amazing. Meanwhile, as the family is enjoying their day, my team will have something special in place for them once they arrive home.
I’m not ready to share all of the details yet, but I can assure you that this will be an experience that no one will forget.
When the time comes, I hope you’ll join me to help make someone’s day.
