As I’m sure most of you did as well, I stayed up extra late last night to watch Drew Brees break Dan Marino’s 27-year old record for most passing yards in an NFL season. It was a wonderful moment made all the more special for how much love and gratitude we have for Brees. It’s an uncommon amount of love and gratitude for a city to have for an athlete, borne not just from his being the best player the Saints have ever had, but from his tireless efforts at giving back to his community.
Brees uses his energy and resources to do good for his fellow man; he’s somebody whose example we should all follow. My office, the Law Office of John Redmann, has been working toward starting a community outreach program that we’re going to call Redmann’s Acts of Kindness Everywhere, or R.A.K.E. It’s a very exciting time for us, and we have all kinds of great ideas to engage with and improve our community.
There will be much more information about R.A.K.E. coming out soon, but for now, I’d like some input from you. If you have a minute or so, please leave a comment on this page telling us some kind of volunteer work or charitable activity that you do, have done, or want to do in the future; or, you could give an example of a person you know who does community outreach work that you admire, and tell us why.
