Some slivers from our 3 hour tour.... actually closer to 2 hours. My friend Heith invited me to a holiday party that our friend Kevin held; a cocktail cruise on Marina Del Rey. What was nice and kind of impressive is that he made this party a fundraiser. Through the group mendpoverty.org, he adopted two local families - 10 people having to live in a garage. By the end of the day, we had all had a nice time and he had raised a big chunk of change for someone who needs it. Apparently its something he does of his own accord every year. I just think that's impressive. He could have had the very same party and no one would have thought any differently of it, but to take that extra unnecessary step is the meaning of generosity.
