May the “Force” Be With Urbana…

A former pro athlete, the current founder of a lacrosse camp, and it doesn’t stop there…

Jon Urbana’s “Earth Force” GoFundMe Campaign is one we can all relate to and appreciate.

It is not often enough that (most) of us stop and take a second to appreciate OUR earth…and all her beauty. It’s not enough just to recycle our plastics, and ride our bikes whenever possible. We must also inspire the younger generations at his camp to realize how precious our planet is. Mr. Urbana is doing just that and reaching out and trying to do just that. This campaign, although based in Denver, has reached cities all over the country, thanks in large part to Urbana’s strong connections to Villanova.

Jon Urbana has also started a charity campaign through CrowdRise to raise money for a non-profit organization called ARAS (Animal Rescue & Adoption Society) in his native Denver, Colorado. He updates his donors daily on his blog.

There are not enough Urbana’s out there if you ask me. We should all do what we can to help our furry friends. They don’t have a voice, and just a simple gesture can go so far, and make a world of difference. See all of the press he’s received at his Crunchbase page.

You go Jon Urbana! Fly that airplane high. You are a perfect example of someone who can dedicate oneself to not only their craft, but to those around him as well.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but reading about some of the things Jon is doing, and has done…sure makes me want to get out there and make a difference as well. It has made a lot to pay people to write papers and I know it will become something good for them.
