126 years ago today the Statue of Liberty was dedicated and is a reminder that giving and sharing is important to make this a better world!
Each one of us decides how to contribute to make our community a better place to live. My company does it through an annual fund raiser, where we donate the products I design for the high end stores and sell it at wholesale prices. This year we will once again open a shop through the generous donation of retail space by the Corte Madera Town Center. All the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Angel Island Conservancy and Bread & Roses. The Sale is going to be held only over 2 weekends, November 9-11 and 16- 18. We hope you can join us one of these days.
Giving is important, however you do it. But here is a new twist. The Marin county law enforcement agencies got together to raise funds for the Special Olympics Northern California. Through a program called “Tip A Cop” at D ’Angelo’s restaurant, they volunteered to join the wait persons to help serve bread and water to the customers on October 26, 2012! Additional tips went to support the Special Olympics. It was an uplifting experience for Ed Messerly and me, where over dinner we got to chat with the police volunteers and learn about their passion and commitment. Their enthusiasm was contagious and I am sure contributions via “tips” poured in!
Among those volunteering were Chief of Police, Jennifer Tejada from the City of Sausalito with Sergeant Jennifer Welch, a 15 year veteran who has been participating in the “Torch Run” and “Tip a Cop” for 13 years; Jennifer Welch from the City of Novato, all serving, among other officers.
