Giving is better than Receiving

I promised I would try to write down my best and worst experiences to keep track of the moving world around me. Well, I will report on some good things I have done so far this year and will start with one for now.   One of the best things that I could have ever done was to become a Founder for "Just Kauz It's Right" in June 2011.

You see, I was working through one of the toughest legislative sessions in Texas history and a special session as well with a thesis writing at a stand still...I decided to exert all my energy into something that produced something positive and good for the people I live with.  That is when I officially formalized my personal charitable effort into an official non-profit organization with the State of Texas.  I put together a strong team of individuals that understood the importance of education and sense of community and relationship with our teachers, parents, and administrators.

Through some in-kind donations, school supply donations and monetary donations we have our official website for "Just Kauz It's Right" where you can see our mission, board members and our events.  The best thing about the website is our official logo, I could not be any more happier to share that with you here.

This is the beginning of an effort that will help children in South Texas. I know the need, I understand the hardships, and I made a promise that I will help them and I intend to keep that promise. Together and United we will succeed and I wish that the community will continue to support us because we are here to stay and help because its just the right thing to do.
