PuzzlesToRemember Honored in New York City

Puzzles to Remember


I had an incredible time this weekend in New York City. I was invited to a banquet sponsored by Hasbro Corporation, the Points of Light Institute, and Generation On. I was presented an award as a Hasbro Community Action Hero.

My work was described and my award presented by Sigourney Weaver.

I had the opportunity to spend time with Cory Booker (the Mayor of Newark) and Spike Lee.




I also had the opportunity to meet 5 other people who were receiving awards for their community service. I hope we can work together with these organizations to encourage other youths to give back to society.

Veterans Appreciate Springbok PuzzlesToRemember

This week, I received several letters of appreciation for the puzzles I have distributed, including two letters from Veterans’ Homes.

I try to donate as many puzzles as possible for veterans with Alzheimer’s disease. I think it’s very sad that these heroes who risked their lives for our country now cannot even remember their heroic acts.

The Veterans Home of California-Barstow wrote:

“We received the puzzles you sent in, Spirit of New York and Goldfinch, and want to thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Our veterans enjoy puzzles very much. Some of them are framed and displayed as art throughout our facility. This has become a favorite pastime and we appreciate having them.”

The Nevada State Veterans Home wrote:

“I want to take just a minute to personally acknowledge your recent donation of 2 Large Piece Puzzles [Springbok PuzzlesToRemember] to the Nevada State Veterans Home Gift Account for the benefit of residents at the Home. Support, such as yours, enables us to provide the highest quality of care for our residents and goes far in our efforts to enhance their day-to-day life. On behalf of America’s heroes, ‘thank you!’ "

Veterans, it is I that thank you!!

I thank this organization for its support.
