My father is going to be a movie star today. He’s featuring in a show about people needing help with their finances.
I don’t think I need to say how proud I am. He’s 73 year old and still doing volunteers work on an almost daily basis. In the documentary that EO (Dutch public TV) is recording, he and one of his clients are interviewed about the 6 years that his client got counseling from him. In these 6 years he helped a 17 year old traumatized boy with no parents and a roof over his head to become a strong 23 year old man that now has his own apartment, is studying for a better future, saved up for a nice financial reserve and is even on track in terms of a nice relationship.
Kudos for my father and the other folks at IDO that actually make an effort to make this world a better place!
