Are you ready to “Give Back like a 1-Percenter”?
I have found in my life there are not many gifts greater than the gift of being able to pay it forward. Because of this, I have committed to marking down over half of my gross income each year from my various businesses and investments. For me, ‘Giving Back like a 1-Percenter’ stands for not only donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving charities each year, but also being involved in helping change the world.
I am very selective about the charities that I donate to. Charities and organizations I have donated to in the last year include the following:
Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation
LaGuardia High School
Various Green Land Conservation Programs
True Colors Fund
North Shore Animal League America
Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of New Jersey
The John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit
Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Metro Orlando
Education Renaissance of Nevada
Tilly’s Life Center
Hudson Stage Company
The American Friends of Jamaica
4 STREAMS Atlanta
As well as:
- Keep Memory Alive
- Helen Keller International
- and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Greater Los Angeles Chapter
I’m doing this to show you I believe in the concept of ‘Giving Back like a 1-Percenter’; giving back to my community, my country and the world.
