This show is loosely based on this week’s “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column, How to Make a Difference: One Person at a Time. We discuss making a difference here.
I often proselytize about how we can each make a difference. Every Sunday on my A Dad’s Point-of-View Facebook Page, I ask as part of what I call #FaithSunday, “What are YOU doing to Repair the World?” It’s said that we can repair the world, one person at a time. I believe that to my core. Trying to solve the big problems in the world can be simply overwhelming, but everyone can touch a single human being. Everyone can make a difference.
When I began writing, my initial goal was to be a dad advocate as my own experiences motivated me in that direction. I still advocate on behalf of dads and all parents. But, as I ventured into the world of Social Media, I realized I had another goal of larger importance and that was to do my part to make the world a better place – to do my part to Repair the World, or Heal the World as Michael Jackson said!
#DadChat – Thursday, May 31 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PT – was about teaching our children the VALUE of paying it forward. We raised money for a terrific cause, [email protected], with THREE incredible prizes that we auctioned off during #DadChat. You can also donate on your own whatever amount you wish, as I’m sure you’ll want to support this very worthwhile, giving, and caring organization. This is what I mean by “Repair the World,” which I so often say. One of Shot At Life’s biggest boosters, Ted Rubin, was our co-host for this special #DadChat. Read the transcript!
