Allow me to introduce myself

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Sam Solakyan. I grew up in an exceptional community in Southern California where I am now running a business and raising my family. Since I was very young, I have been inspired by the people surrounding me to work hard and to live with a generous spirit. I have had the great fortune of meeting and working with so many amazing individuals who have such a profound impact on the lives of those around them. The number constantly seems to grow larger as I come across more and more incredible projects championed by dedicated men and women, all striving toward the same goal: to make our world a better place.

It would be impossible for one person to get involved with every single cause, but I am making an effort to learn about and be a part of as many as possible. It is my goal here to bring awareness to all of them so that anyone reading this can get excited and jump in, make donations or spread the word. That’s what this blog is devoted to: putting the spotlight on the great philanthropic work that is being done both locally and around the world. I am thrilled to share about all of these remarkable organizations and to learn about new undertakings. Join me here weekly whether you’re looking for a place to volunteer your time, new ways to give or just to hear uplifting stories. Thank you for reading, and come back soon!
