"Spend some, save some, give some." - A few of my dad's favorite words to live by
I sometimes spend too much and need to save more often, but I do give as much as possible.
A portion of all Tiffany Chou sales is donated to the Coral Reef Alliance and one of my favorite things to do in the city is donate my time to volunteering for Achilles International year-round.
The Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is the only international organization working exclusively to unite communities to save coral reefs. CORAL helps the people who live near reefs protect their fragile resources by supporting local conservation projects that benefit both reefs and communities.
Achilles International is a non-profit organization where able-bodied volunteers and disabled runners come together to train in a happy and encouraging environment, rain or shine.
I've been volunteering with Achilles for several years and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me while living in New York. We are all capable of broadening the spectrum of what we think can be accomplished, it just takes a little inspiration, imagination and some guts to take that very first step.
