Happy Thanksgiving! For this special episode we are focusing on gratitude, giving back, and using your superpowers to make a difference.
Joining me is my friend, Tim Kenny, founder of The St. Baldrick’s Foundation-an organization that is near and dear to my heart.
If you have been around our show for more than a hot minute, you have probably heard me talk about the work we do to raise awareness and funding for pediatric cancer research. My IRL community has been impacted by the loss of several kids to various types of cancers-and having a front row seat to how it impacts a family alters the way in which you see the world.
At the time of this recording, The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has donated over 465 million dollars to pediatric cancer research, making them the leading non-profit organization dedicated to pediatric cancer research. They are “the behind the scenes” heroes responsible for funding grants to researchers in institutions including St. Jude’s, Dana Farber, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (to name a few).
I invited Tim on the show to share his personal story of growing up on a farm in Ireland, the oldest of 6 kids, coming to the US with $200 in his pocket, and building a life here (the true American Dream).
During our conversation, Tim shares:
- The origin story of St. Baldrick’s, and how a brainstorm with some buddies over a couple of beers changed his life
- How St. Baldrick’s got its name (spoiler alert: it’s not a real saint!)
- Stories about how kids and adults of all ages have been impacted by the work they do.
In a season where many of us are stressed and overwhelmed, this episode focuses on hitting pause on your to-do list and pressing play on how small gestures can make a difference in someone’s life.
After listening to this episode, my hope is that you feel inspired to share it with your friends, show gratitude for the people in your life who matter, and continue using your superpowers to make the world a better place.
I am grateful for all of you.
