By Daniel Flynn:
For years, caught up with the principle that ‘charity begins at home,’ I was fully engaged in a corporate career to become financially independent, acknowledging from time to time the stark photos of human misery elsewhere that would occasionally surface in the media. When my wife Kate McNally and I gave to charity, it would be a quickly written check in response to appeals from the local Hospice, Red Cross, or annual United Way campaign.
Nine years ago, we moved to Belgium and a little under two years ago, as I nudged towards 70 years of age, I began to look for ways to say thanks for all I had received in life. I have lived longer and more comfortably than the grand majority of the 6.8 billion people alive today have or will. I wanted to use my skills to serve others in a volunteer way as a way of saying ‘thanks’.
