**The act of helping others can create an improved sense of well-being. Knowing that you sacrificed something such as finances, time or property in order to help others in need can give you a sense of purpose in life or work and inner satisfaction.
**After donating financially to a worthy cause, you may feel an inner pull to become more involved with the cause by donating your time and skill as well. By volunteering, you have the opportunity to build your social circles while reaping the physical, mental and spiritual benefits from the labor you contribute to your favorite cause.
**Do know that a percentage of all monies received thru Mentor or Die book sales and/or with your monetary donations will be recycled and multiplied into greater donations for mentees who have excelled in select identified mentorship programs around America-overcoming adversity and becoming pillars in their communities!
**Also, do know that a percentage of monies donated is allocated to fund the annual Mentor Or Die book scholarship fund to furnish school books to select deserving students who have overcome hardships. We will recognize those students and will post these awards.
**Real power is the ability to graciously give to the less fortunate and expect nothing in return from those who have the inability to return the gesture.
**Pay it forward concept: At some point in all our lives, someone has directly or indirectly given you something just out of love, with the hope of improving the quality of your life. Now it's your turn to give and plant that "pay it forward seed"...
**Give & make a donation relative to the intensity, formidable passion and conviction exuded from the face of one of my favorite photographs - mentee/student.
