Giving, for me, is a God-given privilege.
It is a gift bestowed on me, not by chance, but for the very reason of sharing it with others, so that together we can create a better world.
The privilege I received is enormous
The privilege to give
The privilege to bestow
The privilege to love
The privilege to help our fellow man
The privilege to improve the quality of life and help create a better reality.
Each and every one of us has the responsibility to be active and give of the small piece of heaven they call their own. I too, strive to do my part, out of my heartfelt belief that if each and every one of us will do their part for the benefit of the collective, together we will change society, the community, and the world at large.
Each of us, myself included, is but a small fragment of a bigger picture. Only through an understanding that we are all part of this bigger picture, in which we each must do our part, can we lead a meaningful change, because we are all one.
Giving is part of my soul, and it is this great privilege that I try to share both through my family and those around me, both through various business endeavors and through the philanthropic activities of The Ted Arison Family Foundation.
I truly hope that in my part I have made giving a reality, and I will continue to make giving a reality so that together we can lead to a better world.
