Alex is just six years old. He lives in Scarsdale, New York. Last month, like people around the world, he was moved by the heartbreaking images of Omran Daqneesh, a five-year-old boy in Aleppo, Syria, sitting in an ambulance, in shock as he tried to wipe the blood from his hands. So Alex sat down and wrote me a letter. This week at a United Nations summit on refugees, I shared Alex's moving words with the world. Alex told me that he wanted Omran to come live with him and his family. He wanted to share his bike, and teach him how to ride. He said his little sister would collect butterflies for him. "We can all play together," he wrote. "We will give him a family and he will be our brother." Those are the words of a six-year-old boy -- a young child who has not learned to be cynical or suspicious or fearful of other people because of where they come from, how they look, or how they pray. We should all be more like Alex. Imagine what the world would look like if we were. Imagine the suffering we could ease and the lives we could save. Listen to Alex, read his letter, and I think you'll understand why I shared it with the world.

Favorite letter of all time. Give a look.

Hello everyone! I wanted to share this heartfelt message from David Young the urban farmer in New Orleans. The video I made on him has over 3.5 million views in just 2 days! His inbox is inundated, his Facebook page is blowing up and many of you wonderful people have donated to his nonprofit and offered to volunteer with him. I'm so excited to see his work grow and to inspire you to give more to your fellow man and to the earth. It gives me chills thinking of all the goodness that is coming from this video. Here's his message to you! Making a difference: I can’t begin to explain how wonderful it is to know how many people have viewed the video of Capstone and myself that Rob created. There are times I wonder if everyone gets so hung up on the violence and politics of the world that we forget how critical it is to love one another and help those in need. Your response has overwhelmingly shown me there are LOTS of other people who love others and care about helping! Please be patient. It is going to take me a few days to make it through all the messages & emails with volunteer or information requests. I am going to make every effort to respond to each of you. I’d like to address a few of the popular requests: The donations you have made, (we are a 501C3) financial or in-kind are so appreciated and much needed. If you went through our Adopt-A-Hive program I will get those certificates out as soon as I can. Many have asked about purchasing honey. If you’re local a list of our vendors is shown near the bottom the Adopt-A-Hive page on our website. If you’re further away; honey, being a heavy liquid bottled in glass gets expensive to package and ship but it can be done. Many ask, how can I start doing something? When I started doing volunteer work and traveled more I saw opportunities to help others in most places I passed through or stopped at. For me it was a matter of walking beyond the common areas, slowing down enough to actually become part of what was around me rather than simply pass through. Listening to what people say their needs are and assisting within your means. My garden started as 4’x14’ and if people wanted to help they had to bring the seeds or plants they wanted to put in the ground. When I spent $100 the first two years that was all I had to spend. Even as we have expanded we operate with very limited funding. Helping others became easier for me once I realized I didn’t need to change the whole world and I could make a difference in my part of it. Then let the rest of the world see it. I’m excited to see what you have or can accomplish! Love Peace & Unity, David
