“You make a living by what you get.  You make a life by what you give.”

   –Winston Churchill

My grandmother use to say a closed hand never receives or gives; an open palm is an invitation to others. Those words echoed in my head for two weeks after I got laid off from my job and decided to shed the self-pity I was wearing (along with my ratty robe ) and be useful to others by volunteering.  This blog will track my quest to good karma by sharing my experiences as a volunteer at different organizations around NYC and keep you in the “know” about African American celebrity charities and philanthropic efforts, if you blinked.
