✨ “I CAN DO THAT FOR YOU”…
They say the most memorable experiences in life happen by chance. Over the weekend, my nephew, Massimo, traveled to Miami for the Dolphins game at Hard Rock Stadium. The day before the game, he was out to lunch at a restaurant, just sitting there with his Dolphins hat on #FinsUp and discussing the game. My nephew has been a huge #MiamiDolphins fan his whole life. He knows all the stats on current and retired players and can tell you anything you ever wanted to know about his favorite team because sports is his passion.
✨ Enter Tom Garfinkel, the Miami Dolphins Vice Chairman, CEO & President. By chance, Tom happened to be in the same restaurant. From across the room, @TomGarfinkel somehow noticed Massimo and genuinely took an interest in his passion for the team. Tom went out of his way to come over to Massimo and asked him, “Is this your first Dolphins game?”. Massimo told him it was his first game in Hard Rock Stadium. Tom asked, “Would you like to go on the field? I can do that for you”.
What an amazing thing to do for a kid. Tom created a meaningful experience and a memory that will last a lifetime. Massimo met and took pics with a bunch of the players including Jaylen Waddle and Xavien Howard and got some autographs on his hat. Massimo also got to toss a football around on the field at Hard Rock Stadium, which was a once in a lifetime experience that #TomGarfinkel was responsible for.
🐬 Shout out to @TomGarfinkel for your authenticity and generosity. What you did for my nephew will leave a lasting footprint on his childhood. You cannot even imagine the happiness you brought into this kid’s life with your kind gesture. You empowered Massimo to succeed in life. If you knew Massimo, you would understand how much he truly valued this opportunity you gave him and how impactful your generosity was in his life because this kid is destined for #success. #gratitude #ICanDoThatForYou
🐬 And shout out to all of the Dolphins players that participate in community outreach and engage with the kids when they come to the games. Amazing people. Always know you made a difference in someone’s life through your #positivemindset.
⚡ I think the takeaway here is that each of us has the power to make a difference. The key is to figure out what you can do to make an impact in someone’s life. For me, I always focus on reinforcing the power of humanity in all of my personal and professional endeavors. My life’s work has been dedicated to helping people find meaningful careers and empowering people on their path to success. That is what I do for people every day.
⚡ Let’s follow Tom’s lead. Ask yourself, what can I do? How can I create meaningful experiences for people? How can I empower someone to succeed? This is your chance to do something amazing that makes a lasting impression in someone’s life. #FinsUp
Thank you @TomGarfinkel @MiamiDolphins @HardRockStadium for creating an opportunity to make a kid’s dream come true!
