As we reflect on the past and prepare for the future, we believe in the intent to Give Help + Offer Hope to others.

EQX Day is celebrated each year during the Spring and Fall Equinoxes. In the Fall, EQX Day is celebrated by selecting valued partners and donating to a charity of their choosing. In the Spring, we gather partners, friends, and colleagues to make a difference in our community.

Fall EQX Day 2022


West Suburban Community Pantry

This group is driven by its vision of a community without hunger for suburban Chicago residents. Food is the most basic of human needs, but for many it is a struggle. The West Suburban Community Pantry provides food for the hungry and referrals to community resources to ease and eliminate the circumstances that led them to seek aid. Please join me in supporting this organization in its important work.

The Sharing Center

We choose The Sharing Center. Our team believes that giving needs to begin at home, in our own community. The Sharing Center exists to fight homelessness and hunger in Longwood and greater Seminole County, Florida. Those experiencing poverty can get a hand up through one of The Sharing Center’s Key Programs such as: Families in Crisis, The Pantry, The Oasis, and Life Builder. These programs address immediate needs, as well as provide extended support that lead individuals and families toward a better future and long-term stability.

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. It is an organization which trains volunteers to be advocates for children who have experienced abuse or neglect, many of whom are in foster care. Their belief is that every child should be given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home. Volunteers are appointed to advocate for children’s best interests. I’ve been passionately supporting this organization since college and hope that you will too!

Spring EQX Day 2022

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida

We partnered with Ronald McDonald House for our 2022 Spring EQX Day. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida (RMHCCF) has come to mean hope, healing and strength for families since opening in 1996. We’re humbled that our EQX Day drive resulted in one of the largest donations RMHCCF has received; helping over 250 families during their stay.

As a show of appreciation for support of EQX Day, the EQX team hosted a Happy Hour at The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park.


Fall EQX Day 2021


Tunnel to Towers Foundation

The past couple of years my wife and I have been donating to the Tunnels to Towers Foundation by supporting the heroes who continue to risk life and limb in the line of duty. To mark its 20th anniversary, the Foundation is delivering 200 mortgage-free homes to our nation’s heroes throughout 2021. Please help support this wonderful cause by donating.

#Hashtag Lunchbag

I’ll always remember the feelings associated with worrying about how to buy formula for my kids or groceries for us to eat. Quite simply put I love supporting this organization because it fulfills a void that every human on earth experiences- the call for nourishment to satisfy our hunger. Hashtag Lunchbag volunteers not only provide healthy bagged foods for those in need, but they also include a handwritten note which becomes a vessel to spread joy and love. It’s so simple, yet the most human thing you can do – to feed someone when they’re hungry.

Alzheimer's Association

Having been impacted by Alzheimer’s firsthand, I lay witness to the life altering and devastating effects this disease has not only on the person, but on family too. As quality of life diminishes and challenges arise in nearly every aspect of daily life, this progressive disease targets both mind and body. Please help support a worldwide effort in finding better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset and prevent it from developing.
