Fourth time’s a charm

Entourage-MovieIt started out as a joke between my friend Wendy and her husband.

“You’d have to pay me $10,000 to go see the Entourage movie.

Wendy had the gumption to turn the joke into a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for CureSearch, which supports research for pediatric cancers.

One short week later, thanks to the generosity of friends and family and countless others who only know Wendy’s story through word of mouth, articles and blogs like mine, ‘the joke’ has now raised over $30,000.

Wendy is closing the GoFundMe page and, as promised, is going to:

  • See the Entourage movie not once, not twice, but four times
  • Wear ‘Drama Mama’ pajamas to the theater
  • Drink her favorite beverage from a specially-designed Turtle cup

And donors that contributed funds at the higher levels get to come along to the theater and witness Wendy’s exquisite agony.

Thank you for your donations. And enjoy the show!

That’s nice

World-Kindness-DayThe Twitter-sphere is all abuzz about today’s holiday of note —

World Kindness Day

This particularly caught my eye because a couple of days ago, the New York Times reported on a recent study that suggests the two most important qualities to affect the longevity of a relationship are generosity and kindness.

So, while you may want to perform a random act of kindness or two to celebrate the day, being kind on a more regular basis could have a big ol’ karma kick-back for you and your special someone.

Just saying.
