REMEMBERING ROBIN, Part II: An Invitation

 “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”

His boundless energy was never limited to making us laugh.  

Robin also epitomized and defined the role of philanthropist.

 

Like millions of others, the death of Robin Williams struck a personal blow of sadness and fixation to learn why.  Why did he choose to leave us behind?  With all of that energy we saw and experienced within his legacy of works, many of us were not only stunned and saddened.  Day and night, I watched the news coverage, read the stories, and revisited all of those wonderful moments of his career.

He was a great listener, according to all who knew him.  When the spotlight dimmed, and only when he was alone with one friend, his attention and focus was unmatched.  Yet, like many people, he was incapable of revealing his private pain and suffering.  

He was a giver.  

He invested his incredible energy and talent  to help a variety of causes.  Visiting children’s wards in hospitals,  entertaining US troops in war zones, that frenetic energy which often heightened his performance, inspired others to laugh. 

Robin’s charity work was seemingly as endless as was his talent.   His diverse interests to help others ran the gamut from  health care and human rights, to education, environmental protection, and the arts.

Most widely known for his affiliation with Comic Relief, which was founded in 1986 as a non-profit organization to help America’s homeless, Robin helped to raise over 50 million dollars. .  He also toured the Middle East with the USO, a total of five time, including visits to help raise the morale of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There is more.  There is much more!
