Fordham Law alumnus Nick Katsoris ’91 was quoted in the National Herald about the Loukoumi Make A Difference Foundation Good Deed Tour.
Katsoris said of the experience, as quoted on the Points of Light website, “It creates good values for these kids, it creates lessons and memories that they’ll remember. It’s also a lot of fun. When we’re on our bus tour every year, the kids have a blast. They learn that doing good is fun. It makes you feel great. The world is a tough place and there’s a lot of crazy things going on in the world, I feel like we’re here to help each other. And if you can’t help one another, then what else is there? There’s a lot of power in banding people together to do good deeds. I’m just seeing the results over the last three years. It’s become my mission to help children continue to do good deeds.”
When asked what people can learn, Katsoris said, as quoted on the Points of Light website, “I want them to realize that nothing is impossible. That if you have a goal or dream, you need to go after it and you need to follow it. And also to realize that that dream or that vision may take a different path, something that you never imagined or something you never expected, kind of like what happened with us. This all started because I wanted to be a writer when I was younger, never in a million years did I think that I’d write a book series about a fluffy little lamb that just wants to make the world a better place. Look inside your heart and figure out what it is that’s important to you and then go out and do it. Follow your passion, because that will make you a happier person, that’ll make other people happier and then – the sky is the limit.”
