I was lucky enough to stop by the studios of Fox News to be a guest on “Fox & Friends.” It was an awesome experience and I’m thankful to everybody there.

My friend Cedric and I volunteered at New to You in Broadview, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). Parents from his son’s school were there to help set up a holiday display. And so were we.

 

Don’t know if you know this or not, but Bozeman is a pretty magical place. In no small part it’s due to people like our new friend, Cami, who is the Executive Director of Befrienders Bozeman, an organization that puts seniors in touch with young folks to bridge the intergenerational gap. Over the course of two days we met a variety of warm and loving seniors for great conversation including one of the best stories ever told.

On Saturday, we also had a chance to go fishing with two Bozeman locals (thank you Linda and Noah!) in Belgrade, Montana. Though we didn’t have any luck, Noah and Linda did. The fish they caught were donated to theĀ Montana Raptor Center. Lucky for us, Linda took us to the Raptor Center and we were fortunate (very coincidentally) to see a Red Tailed Hawk the Center had been rehabbing for the past two weeks getĀ released into the wild. We had no idea the release was happening, but were very glad to see it and very impressed by the work the Center is doing.

I had an opportunity to visit the Idaho Foodbank in Boise to see their operations. Within that massive warehouse, there’s a lot of magic going on. In addition to sorting donations, I also had a chance to learn about their innovative backpack program that helps fight child hunger in school kids. This was such a beautiful experience and I won’t soon forget it. Such a loving and dedicated group of people.Big thanks to Teena, Mike, and everybody else there!

I had an opportunity to visit the Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama in Mobile with my friend Michelle. Public Relations Director Katie Emer gave us a tour of the facilities and explained the philosophy behind the organization. We then joined some of the kitchen staff to help prepare and serve dinner to those in need.

More about the Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama (from their website):

The Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama provides spiritual, social and emotional assistance for men, women and children who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves.
Our centers offer emergency shelter, job training and placement, social services and seasonal assistance for families in need.

We also provide work, group and individual therapy for men who are recovering from addictions. The physical and spiritual care that program participants receive prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment. Many of those who have been rehabilitated are reunited with family and resume a normal life.

I joined my friend Delilah S. Dawson at the TLC Humane Shelter in Dahlonega, Georgia. We spent time with cats and dogs who needed a little human interaction. To be honest, it was nice, having been on the road for a bit, to run around outside with the dogs and to quasi-nap in the sun with the kittens. Here’s an interview with Doreen Sanders, the head caretaker at the shelter.

I joined the Hoffmeister family of Eugene, Oregon to make burritos that we passed out to those in need.
