“There must be more to life than having everything.”
- Maurice Sendak

We’ve all read the book “Were the Wild Things Are”.

I’ve even had the privilege of listening to the book being read to me as a child, and now as an adult  reading it to my two little girls.

What you might not have known is that according to a recent WSJ.com article, the author of the famous children’s book has donated $1 million dollars to Jewish Family and Child Services.

The gift is to honor the 82-year-olds life partner Eugene D. Glyn who worked for 30 years as a psychologist at JFCS helping children in need before he passed away in October of 2007.
