Community Service provides each of us with the opportunity to demonstrate our care, support and commitment to those in need. Whether or not it's donating time, money, resources or demonstrating public influence, each of us can and should feel compelled to make a difference. My family and I have been extremely blessed in health, position, stability and friendship, and we believe in our responsibility to pay it forward. I have personally witnessed the devastating impacts that sickness and cancer can have upon others' lives and have vowed not to be an idle bystander. As a Boeing employee, I am honored to see the positive impact that my fellow employees have upon the community and essential organizations such as Ronald McDonald House.
Men in Kilts provided us with the chance to have fun (and we had a lot of fun!), to take a risk (just look at our photos!), and hopefully encourage our friends, colleagues and community to support Ronald McDonald House by voting generously. We're already contemplating next year's theme...

Through the years, I've always been inspired by my colleagues' support of the Ronald McDonald House. When this opportunity was presented, I jumped at the chance to do my part in support of such a wonderful charity. Don and I had a great time during the photo shoot and I'm hoping that our efforts during the donation period will be just as rewarding.
Fortunately, through the many years of raising our family, my wife and I haven't experienced the struggles, challenges and heartbreaks that many families have. Our heart and prayers go out to them. The services offered by the Ronald McDonald house, during these life challenges are crucial to those families. It is my pleasure to support the wonderful work the Ronald McDonald house contributes to our communities.
Thanks, and I'm already looking forward to next year,
