Hi everybody, and welcome to this week’s episode of the Zebra Report. I’ve been so fortunate over the years to have incredible people, clients, and associates in my life that give back. I just want to thank everybody out there doing good things. With what’s going on in the world right now, taking a little bit of time to make someone else feel special is very powerful.
Today I’m outside. It’s so sunny and beautiful. I’m here with all my dogs and something really incredible happened today. Nancy, from the office, came to see me and she delivered this box of incredible goodies that someone dropped off at the office.
Watch the video to see all my dogs, especially Tino, who is the inspiration for this incredible gift. My dogs mean the world to me. This special gift came to me and I don’t have a clue who sent it to me. This is the cutest gift I’ve ever gotten.
This gift for my dog made my whole month. The fact that one of my special clients was thinking about my sick dog means so much to me. I treasure this gift and I want to thank whoever that is. (And whoever sent it, you have to let me know who you are!)
Here’s what’s really important: This is the kind of stuff that makes people so happy. We get really busy with work, real estate, and our personal lives. We can get so caught up in that busy-ness that we forget to take a moment to make someone’s day and give back to our community.
I have a lot of amazing clients that are doing incredible things. One of my long-time clients, Jay Agoado, founded the Project Kids’ Cancer Guild. Jay and the Guild are all about giving back in the form of helping kids and cancer research. The funds raised by the Guild help families and kids get life-saving treatments and advance cancer research.
The Project Kids’ Cancer Guild has a big event coming up this weekend and I want to personally invite everyone to attend. It’s a virtual event with a silent auction and musical performances. I’ve been lucky enough to work with Jay and attend other events. It’s always an incredible experience. Jay Agoado has inspired me a lot with the work he’s done.
I really want to encourage everyone to give back at the Guild virtual event. Please come step out of your comfort zone and come do something virtual with me. Whether you donate just a dollar or a little time, the whole idea is giving back.
So again, thank you to whoever gave me this adorable gift and my dogs thank you as well.
I hope and expect to see you this weekend at this incredible virtual event that Jay Agoado is putting on.
