Spreading positivity and support when students need it the most!
I was on a call with my boy Julio yesterday and he mentioned he was making a trip to Sac State for a meeting. After I mentioned it would be great to send good vibes to the students, all he said is “How can I help?” Thanks bro for being down for the cause! @julio_cortiz
It was awesome seeing how welcoming students were!
If you are wondering, the sign said HUGS 4 GOOD LUCK ON FINALS
#18 Appreciate your team
The team voted to have a competitive bowling session as a pre Christmas gathering. It was fun and it was a great opportunity to show our appreciation for the team.
If you haven’t done it already, now is a good time to do a little something for your team.
I don’t know what gets to me more, the fact that her two little boys have never had a Christmas tree and unwrapped gifts on Christmas day or the fact that she admits/accepts responsibility for her current situation – that takes a lot!
I just purchased a live Christmas tree for our home and seeing how much Julian liked it, I just can’t resist.
I reached out to them with the intention to sponsor a Christmas tree and a couple of gifts for her little boys. The parents are offering trade services, which I will take, regardless if I need it or not. I know that by taking their services, it will give them a boost of self confidence, and self esteem.
Ps. I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t believe everything I find on Craigslist. Whether it’s true or not, I’ll leave it on their conscious.

#14 Try to make someone smile
Julian and I went for a walk in Old Sac to see the Christmas lights, but he wasn’t happy at all. As we were walking I saw a homeless man looking for food and I gave him a couple of dollars.
I captured this moment as he looked down at Julian and tried to make him happy. It didn’t work but it was nice of him for trying
#13 Express your gratitude
Let the people whom you are grateful to have know that you are grateful to have them in your life.
I’m thankful I received this text because it only encourages me to keep going. Today I can help them, tomorrow they can help me. Surround yourself with good people that can motivate you, support you, and encourage you to go to the next level.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t know about Giving Tuesday till I got an email about it today. What’s best is that some companies match your donation – or at least a percentage of it.
Today I gave a couple of Starbucks coffees and a few compliments to people. Really, who doesn’t like Starbucks and compliments? In honor of Giving Tuesday give compliments to people and make their day A donation to a charity of your choice is also nice

#11 Lead an event
It’s one thing to give back on my own, but when a group of people is willing to do the same, I’m all for it! Today we hosted Haircuts & Blowouts for Charity – 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Sacramento Children’s Home. Don’t have an exact amount as of yet, but we raised over $500 in only a few hours.
I had to post this since I organized the event Thank you to the stylists and clients that made this possible
