– Hello friends and happy Thanksgiving!
It is the time of year where our thoughts turn to family, friends and opening our hearts. You know I never ask for anything from you all (Other than watching every episode, subscribing to and spreading the word about New Mexicast, posting comments and taking a survey… okay, so I do ask a lot of you! LOL!) but I thought I would put an appeal out there to help a great cause this holiday season. One year ago this month, we lost my dear father-in-law, Dr. Sam Goldfein. Because he was always dedicated to the pursuit of medicine and helping others to live full and healthy lives, we set up a medical scholarship fund in his honor. The hope is that the fund will help others to help others by giving them the chance to go to medical school. You never know, one of those scholarship recipients could save one of your loved ones’ lives one day. So, as you decide where your generous holiday donations will go, please consider even a small donation to:
Dr. Sam Goldfein Medical School Scholarship Fund
Jewish Community Foundation
5546 East Fourth Street
Tucson, AZ 85711
Speaking of worthy causes… this week’s story highlights the service project of a local Girl Scout Troop. I know it’s not the kind of project that usually makes headlines or gets media attention, but that’s exactly why I love doing this video podcast, because I get to do stories about good works and good people. When you see these adorable Santa’s helpers, I think you will agree they deserve kudos for reaching out to kids who are less fortunate this holiday season.
Thanks again for all your support and kindness.
P.S. I hope you’re not forgetting to stick around for the “Bloopers & Outtakes” at the end of each episode!
