Last night, we held a benefit dinner to raise some money for the programs that I run or help run. We definitely blew it out of the water, raising over 100k. So many huge name droppers in the house, it was crazy who I was shaking hands with left and right. But the highlight of my night was shocking everyone whenever they asked why I work so hard or am so passionate with what I do. I simply say,
“I want to change the world. Someone has to do it.”
That line, those words, were directly responsible for bring in at least $10,000. So many people where thrown back at my conviction in saying it, that they simply gave me a hug. Last night will definitely be a challenge in topping over next year.
