You may be wondering, who is Avi? Well, he’s a two-year-old philanthropist that’s putting us all to shame. Earlier this week he arrived at Windermere’s Sand Point office sitting in a red wagon with his Tzedakah box (the kid really knows how to arrive in style). Tzedakah translates to “justice;” meaning that it’s an obligation rather than an option. So every Friday, before sunset (and on special occasions), Avi put money into his Tzedakah box for charity. Once he filled it, he decided his first donation would go to the Windermere Foundation. It’s safe to say we were both thrilled and honored, and simply can’t get over the maturity of this two-year-old.
After gracefully handing over the money, with his plush football close by, Avi closed the meeting by saying: “Touchdown!” And I really don’t think any of us could have said anything more fitting. We can all learn a thing or two from Avi, not just about saving, but about giving back.
