I care about NY Cares.

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to take a break from working on my shows every once in awhile in order to work with charitable organizations.

I’ve got some fun stuff in mind on how I can help, from “Give Back” days (where my staff and I take a day off and spend it working with an org in need), to online auctions, and a whole lot more.

Choosing an organization to help wasn’t as easy as making the resolution.

I knew I wanted to support a local organization that helps the people in need that I see everyday.  New York City is a tough place to live and a tough place to work, and I’m blessed enough to be able to do both comfortably.

And when I asked around about the best local charity to support, all my friends and associates came back with only one . . . NY Cares (word of mouth in action, btw)

NY Cares is an amazing institution that “meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.”

And if you’ve been reading my blog, and if you know anything about me, you can see why I love it.

Because they are a get-your-hands-dirty, action organization.  They do stuff.  And they want you to help them do it.

I first learned about them this past year, when Godspell supported their annual coat drive with our own “Give Him Your Coat As Well” drive, and I was so impressed that I signed up to support them some more.

And now, I am beyond humbled to say that they have chosen to honor me at their annual “Soiree” on March 1st.  In other words . . . it’s time to party!

I hope you’ll join me in celebrating another great year of work by NY Cares by coming to the Soiree.  The details are as follow:

NY Cares Soiree
Thursday, March 1st
311 West 57th Street (betweeb 8 & 9th Aves)
7 – 10pm (VIP Cocktail Hour from 6 – 7pm)

You can purchase your tickets (which include premium open bar and more) here.  If you can’t make it that night, you can also make a donation here.

I look forward to seeing you on the 1st, and we can both thank NY Cares for caring so f#@$ing much.

    Would love to come and honor you, but I’ll be out of the country on assignment. However, you are the guy who could sell me the Brooklyn Bridge – plus the fact that it’s a great organization, so I will be making a donation. Hope you’ll put your acceptance speech on youtube.

    I’ve always felt volunteering to be a joyful and rewarding experience. Every year the company I work for also shuts down for the day, and as small groups, we volunteer at various community organizations. It is a humbling experience and a day to look forward to every year. I wish more companies did the same thing. Brava!

    I checked out the website and liked what I saw. It’s times like this that I wished I lived closer. There’s a lot that’s been going on over the last few months that I’ve missed out on. So know there’ll be a few in spirit supporting you. I’ve signed up and will make a donation in your name.
