Volunteering: Working with good people

I look forward to becoming friends on Facebook
Let's connect on LinkedIn and on Twitter @SeanyOB.
(Feel free to be in touch if you feel that I can help you, your family or friends.) 

Volunteering: Working with good people 

I spent part of my Sunday volunteering at an outdoor event that was held by the Children's Alopecia Project (CAP). The winds were blowing, but we didn't care because our cause was just. 

Jeff Woytovich, who founded CAP, spent 21 hours raising money for children and their families this weekend? Yes, there are other people in the world who do things like that. But, most of us don't give nearly that much of ourselves. He, his wife Betsy and their four daughters have character. 

Readers of this blog know that my connection to CAP began a few years ago. The people within that non-profit organization are truly kind-hearted and community-minded. So, it's always a pleasure to be part of the positive atmosphere that surrounds them.

It's always best to establish, maintain and sustain connections with those who bring out the best in everyone. The Woytovich family and their many friends are good people who are using their free will to help others.

I look forward to being with the CAP community and everyone who is drawn to them as time moves forward.

Here's a link to this great (print and online) article that the Reading Eagle recently published about our story Maddie: Teaching Tolerance with a Smile: Book chronicles Wyomissing teen's journey since being diagnosed with alopecia

Thank you to Stacey Stauffer (Fox 29 Philadelphia). She interviewed Madison Woytovich, her parents (Jeff and Betsy Woytovich) and me about the latest chapter in this inspiring story. Here's a video link to Stacey's wonderful feature.

A recent post ...

Interest surged in my Twitter account just a few hours after I had written a feature about Michael Muhney of CBS' 'The Young and The Restless'. 

More than just a talented, hard-working thespian, Muhney is also a family man who chooses to be involved in important charity work. One of those causes is: The LA Cancer Challenge, which benefits pancreatic cancer research. Click on that link when you get a chance. It's worthwhile.

Every social media connection has helped my online features to generate millions (yes, millions) of internet hits since Labor Day weekend 2010. I remain deeply grateful to everyone for the attention that's been given to these sports, news and interview articles. I never expected this embrace, but am genuinely humbled by it.

Amazon.com is the number 1 online publishing platform in the world. That's why I used it to publish my first ebook: 

This mini-tome is a collection of stories and poems for readers who don't take themselves too seriously. I hope that you enjoy it and am always interested in your feedback.
