As we come to the close of another year and reflect on what we’ve done and where we are going, I’d like to share my warmest wishes with you for a wonderful 2015.
Over the past year, I’ve been fortunate to be able to support, through the Tariq Farid Foundation, close to 20 organizations that work to make the world a better place for everyone. About half of these organizations work to relieve suffering of those in need; some by providing warm meals and food and others by providing free healthcare. Other organizations that I have supported provide skill development opportunities for children and adults, helping them develop skills that will allow them to achieve their full potential.
Working with these organizations has allowed me to come face to face with the immense need that exists in the world. So, as our lives get busier and busier, with so much seemingly bad news in the world, let’s remember to take a step back and realize how lucky we are. Let’s also never forget to help those in need whenever we can.
Let’s remember to take the time to celebrate what’s good in life. Let’s make sure we are kind to each other. Let’s also make sure we take the time to spend with our loved ones—family and friends!
My best wishes to you all for a safe, happy, healthy and wonderful new year! Don’t forget to celebrate what’s good in life!
