Challenge Day

I recently learned about a program called Challenge Day that has a vision and mission that I wholeheartedly applaud. I went to its website at and saw:

Our vision is that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved and celebrated.

The Challenge Day mission is to provide youth and their communities with experiential programs that demonstrate the possibility of love and connection through the celebration of diversity, truth, and full expression.

To inspire people to be the change they wish to see in the world, starting with ourselves, through compassion and service using the formula for change – NOTICE, CHOOSE, and ACT.

To be the driving force in creating the school of their dreams.”

I’m investigating the possibility for volunteering to help with this program at a local school.

Speaking of volunteering at schools, I highly recommend it. I have fond memories of the times I volunteered as a one-on-one reading tutor to elementary school children and taught business and investing principles to a high school class.

As an investment manager I can think of few investments more worthy of my time than teaching, helping, and guiding, young people.
