Philanthropy is a fancy word for describing groups, ideas, people and organizations I love and support. Giving back - or just plain old giving - is a big thing for me. I grew up with a struggling single mom and thanks to luck and other's generosity, my life is wonderfully filled with love, books, travel, security and health. The groups I give to reflect my values and the world I hope to create for my children. My primary focus is on early childhood development, the environment, cannabis legalization. I'm politically active and I support progressive politicians who are fighting for our kids, our earth, and our democracy.
