Wise words and humor from NBA Hall of Famer and former President of Detroit Pistons, @joe4dumars and former Phoenix Suns GM and local great, Lance Blanks..strive for excellence, be humble, stay present, and take each day/game/circumstance as a way to learn and grow! 🤗🤩😍☝🏼✊🏽👊🏾🙌🏿💪🏾

Happy Baba Jie means 八八节 or 爸爸节: 'August 8th Day' or 'Fathers' Day' in China and Taiwan (historically, since WWII...however, now, many celebrate the 3rd Sunday in June like Western nations). Baba is the same sound that means father (爸爸) and the number eight (八-ba) August 8th 八八. Cheers to all the dads and father-figures, we hope you get to relax today! Special love to our 爸爸, who coincidentally is 88 this year too. 八八 x ✌🏽. S/O to @planetfitness for your amazing hydromassage beds 😍🤗🤩😎 #babajie#fathersday
This makes us love the "Peanuts" gang even more. 💖💝✊🏾🙌🏼

Thank you so much to everyone that made our Panel Discussion on Immigration a success👏🏼 thank you to Sarah Valdes of @raicestexas, Pooja Sethi, Pedro Villalobos and Sera Bonds of @circleofhealth and moderator Ana Maria Rea of @raicestexas for participating! Thanks, @slabbbq for catering this event, and to all who came to learn & donate to immigration resources🙌🏼 the next step is volunteering your time, talents, and treasure to these organizations and others working toward equal rights for immigrant people👍🏻
Today our #SYLEP2018 participants enjoyed their time volunteering with @bgcaustin we got to teach them arts & crafts, songs & dances, chess, and even their Arabic names! 🇸🇦 All after a delicious Syrian refugee homemade catered lunch that everyone (including the kids) devoured! 😋
Major shout-outs in order for our wonderful #SYLEP2018 partners yesterday! Thank you to @capitalfactory & Patrice for our inspiring tour & information on Austin entrepreneurship, and to Jen Slaski Halligan from @prune_and_bloom & Honey Bee Consulting for helping us find & own our strengths as leaders🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏽
Thank you @caritasofaustin for not only what you do in #Austin for the homeless, but what you do for volunteers to gain a perspective of how we must serve together to love and build community. #SYLEP18-Austin got a chance to feed about 300 people in 90 minutes for lunch this morning. We prepped, we served, and we cleaned up in an air-conditioned building while it was 110 degrees outside today. The Saudis taught us homelessness is not common in their country...perhaps it's their families that live together until marriage, or that their government provides free public university tuition and healthcare insurance to their citizens. 🤔👍🏼💕
