Of my four children, Chiara, who is now six, is the troublemaker. Despite her innocent look, she is constantly setting fires.
On the first day of school, her teacher Miss D. asked her, “What does your father do for a living?”
Without hesitation, Chiara replied, “My father takes money from the rich and gives it to the poor. He is a like Robin Hood… He usually goes to rich people’s homes at night… he brings his people with him to do the job…”
When Chiara told me what happened, I decided to accompany her to school as I thought an explanation was in order. The teacher broke into a sigh of relief when I handed her my business card. I could see her body language saying… Ah! That’s what he really does… Now more relaxed, she smiled and said, “Have a great day, Mr. Gabriele Delmonaco.” And I could not resist replying, “Oh please, call me Robin!”
You and I know that fundraisers do much more than raise money to help those in need. They connect hearts, impact lives, and lead the way to a better future. Today, I would like to ask you to become one of these leaders.
