There are many angels that walk amongst us, helping those in need and giving hope to others. Each week for the next 8 weeks I'm going to highlight a person or organization that is making a difference in their community. ( This person may be you. If so tag yourself. ) There will be a prize at the end of the 8 weeks for selected participants.
All you have to do is 1. tag them 2. email me a brief explanation about how this person gives hope to others. ( click the link in bio)
Rules: 1. You can only tag yourself once.
2. Information must be valid/ verifiable.
This is Stephen J. Rapp, former United States Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues in the Office of Global Criminal Justice. We had a great conversation, but I can't help but to feel like he was trying to outdo me with his tie. Seriously, where can I get that tie?!
I left my home of Uganda for Kenya to become a refugee before making America my home. Yesterday I ran into Joyce Meyers, who was one of the first to receive me with open arms when I came to Atlanta. She is a phenomenal civil and human rights activist and I am forever grateful to her.
A company is as good as the character and content of it's leadership. Each leader brings gifts and talents that are exceptional but what we need above and beyond those gifts and talents is moral aptitude. Great meeting this afternoon with my friend and exemplary leader Dietmar Exlar, CEO of @mbusa .
Successful people are not perfect, but what sets a successful person apart from being average is that they go the extra mile even when it is not a requirement. A successful person is compassionate, courageous, and that breeds brilliance. Today, my good friend Ed Bastian (the CEO of Delta) and I spoke at the Hispanic corporate council of Atlanta annual forum of CEOs.
This morning, when I listened to the radio, I heard a story about a father who didn't have money to pay for his child's healthcare. (The child had an expensive medical condition).
As a last resort, the father humbled himself and asked the radio station hosts to point him in the right direction to receive help. Because of his courage, the radio station was able to raise over $11,000. The most touching part of this story is that some of those who donated had their own financial struggles. Lesson: Giving comes from the heart. I challenge you to give to those in need, even when you know the person will never be able to repay you. The help that you lend someone today could be life changing for them. #LovePeople#takechances#weallneedhelpsometimes#community
