In The Spirit Of Giving | #GivingTuesday

Giving back is at the heart of what we do at Miles David, and it made sense today to highlight some of the organizations that I love.  

To show our love, we will donate 30% of our sales today to organizations that are making a difference.

I would love to know which organizations you support!  #GivingTuesday


TUTS

There are so many reasons that I love TUTS, so I was super excited to be asked to join the board this year and I agreed to co-chair their gala on April 20th!. 

TUTS is more than just theatre, it's a place that gives back to the community, especially though their educational arm and renowned training program, Humphreys School of Musical Theatre AND The River Performing and Visual Arts Center, which allows children with disabilities, disadvantages or chronic illness to delight in the joys of singing, dancing and acting.

If you haven't seen a show recently, don't miss seeing 

 

SLEEPING BEAUTY AND HER WINTER KNIGHT

DECEMBER 12 - 24, 2017


with your whole family!

 

Breakthrough Houston

 

I believe that education is the key to the future, and Breakthrough Houston's mission is to prepare students who possess high academic potential, but limited educational resources, for competitive high school programs and college admission. They also train talented college and high school students for careers in education.

Breakthrough Houston is helping make it a reality that all children have equal access to quality education and teachers committed to their academic success.

Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed!

 

KNOWAutism

 

An organization that has been close to my heart for several years is the KNOWAutism Foundation. Their goal is to support families and reduce the burden of an Autism diagnosis.

There are so many ways that KNOWAutism helps, including providing direct financial assistance to families. They raise community awareness of the early signs of autism and the importance of early intervention and support community programs that serve children and families impacted by autism.

KNOWAutism is also a big supporter of TUTS's The River Performing and Visual Arts Center!

 

Judy's Mission

 

You may not know, but my mother-in-law's battle with cancer is what brought Michelle and me to Houston over 7 years ago. It's a devastating disease, and I support anything that can be done to help other families lessen the blow.
Judy's Mission is increasing awareness, advocating early detection, breaking the silence surrounding ovarian cancer.

Judy’s Mission Ovarian Cancer Foundation honors the memory of Judith L. Robinson by promoting awareness about ovarian cancer, advocating for those who have been diagnosed, and funding research for the development of effective screening and treatment.

Michelle and I will be co-chairing the Judy's Mission Possible Luncheon on May 4th, and I hope that you will consider joining us! #B4S4 (Before Stage 4)

TV Watch: Summer
TV Watch: Summer

by David Peck July 26, 2018

I’ve been wanting to do a TV post for a long time and I’m finally getting around to doing it. I probably watch WAY too much TV, but every time I think it’s too much, I remind myself that I also used to read about 10-15 books a week when I was younger. TV is totally my new book. Plus, I tend to fall asleep now when I read. So anti-climactic. On the list of #lifegoals is getting back to reading more. For now, there’s just way too much GOOD TV.

Later, I’ll do a post on TV that changed me as a person, but because it’s summer, I thought that I would focus this one on what I’m watching now, just finished watching, or is on my watch list. This list isn’t at all exhaustive. I’ve limited it to three titles per category of shows that are currently on TV. As I said, I like TV…

Behind the Scenes: Kelly Levesque, July 4th
Behind the Scenes: Kelly Levesque, July 4th

by David Peck July 17, 2018

I got to know Kelly Levesque a few months ago when she came to Houston to sing for the KNOWAutism gala. Not only is she an incredibly talented vocalist, but she is extremely kind and giving. She wrote a song about autism and is donating 100% of the proceeds to the KNOWAutism Foundation. We dressed her for the gala, but somehow, she was convinced to let me sing with her on The Prayer (there may or may not be evidence of this on my Instastory highlights…).

Tradition! Wedding Edition
Tradition! Wedding Edition

by David Peck July 07, 2018

I can’t tell you how often I get the question, “Is this appropriate for my wedding?” The answer, really, is simple and complicated. It depends on how many people you want to annoy and how much of a people pleaser you are. Maybe I’m simplifying things a little bit too much, but you have to think about what you want out of your wedding.
Wedding are usually the moment when you’re bringing your entire family together with your future in-laws, maybe for the first time, which brings the question, “Is your wedding even about you?”
