When Steve and I attended the #140conf in New York we had the pleasure of having dinner with Mark Horvath. After dinner, he went though a discreet procedure of using a wooden tooth pick. Much to Steve’s horror (he says I ask way too many personal questions), I asked Mark if he was having trouble with his teeth.He said he was in the beginning stages of periodontal disease.
Mark is one of my heroes. He is also like a little brother. I asked him if he had dental insurance, he said no. Then I asked the hardest question of all. I expected the bill to be very expensive. “Mark, if we raised the money to have the work done, would you give it to the dentist or the homeless.” Mark slightly bowed his head and smiled.
Mark told us about his church buddy who gave him several food vouchers. His friend was worried that Mark was not getting enough food to eat. Mark, being the hero to the homeless that he is, gave the food vouchers to someone more needy than himself.
If we raise the money, will you go have the work done, I asked. Mark said yes, he would definitely go and have the work done. Now all the red tape has been worked though, all HIPPA material properly processed. Now all we need is you.
My first idea was email a few people and ask for a donation. Knowing how many people love Mark Horvath, I decided to give everyone a chance to chip in and help.
This one is very personal. This donation is for a friend we all know and love. I am asking for a NON TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation. The goal is $1000. If we go over that amount, any excess monies will be given to InvisiblePeople.
