VLOG 4 :: The Man Who Gave the Coat off His Back

Every Wednesday, I unplug, speak from my heart and share thoughts in a short video blog to inspire us to: Live. Inspire. Now.

Today’s vlog is a challenge to: be generous to the people you work, live and play with. To kick the challenge off — I share the story of a man who literally gave the coat off his back. Watch this video, accept my challenge and get inspired to: Live. Inspire. Now. J

The kids at Althoff will never forget that selfless act of kindness. Who knows how many other generous acts that will inspire. Your Dad is The Man.

Thanks, John. I am a huge fanning of giving from the heart. Your father did just that–not because he had to but because he wanted to. As the poet John Donne said, we are all a part of the whole. What happens to one of us affects each of us. If someone is without the necessities in life–we should all feel it at some level once we become aware of it. And with awareness comes responsibility. I am a huge proponent of giving the coat off my back and your message today inspires me that I have much to give. Scripture tells us “to whom much is given, much is required.” And, Ironically, the more we give, the more we receive. It is the circle of life!!!

Thx, Ed, for taking the time to leave a note! And please thank Susan for sharing with you. I will absolutely tell my folks hi. Have an awesome day! J
