Helping with the HDS Foundation over the past year has been a big part of why I’ve loved working here so much. In my time at HDS I have written a few of our blogposts for the foundation about the events it has hosted and participated in. Seeing how great of a time the kids and young adults have at these events brings me so much happiness. Their pure smiles can shed light onto the darkest of times, because they give off nothing but love and acceptance.My favorite memory is participating in the Dan Marino Walk About Autism with Team Kate. This walk happens every year and it just seems to get better and better. This past year Team Kate was the highest fundraiser for the event raising over $8,000 to help kids with Autism and disabilities in South Florida. I’m so proud to call Kate my friend and to see the beautiful young woman that she has become. The commitment and hard work she brings to everything that she does is astounding.In my last few days working in the office I had the pleasure of being able to meet Nico, a young man who will be interning here over the summer. I trained him and showed him the ins and outs of everything there is to do here at HDS. He was a pleasure to mentor and can tell that he is going to do great things. I can honestly say that this company and foundation have shaped my personal character in ways that you couldn’t imagine. It has been a pleasure to work with the HDS Foundation and I hope that one day maybe I’ll even have the opportunity to return.

Nothing but love, Max
