On a civic level, his foundation funded a grant in Florida and he participated in a READ PSA photo shoot to promote the Delray Beach library. On the professional level, the books based on Greg's story (The Silhouette Man & The First Thirty) have been used by organizations & schools in Florida (i.e. Bistro Provence, Donna Klein Jewish Academy) with their staff, clients or students &/or as part of their efforts to make a difference in the community. Miami Country Day School selected The First Thirty as a common read for its students taking a trip to South Africa & then had Greg speak with those students & their parents. SCROLL DOWN TO CONTINUE
