    “Paul Garavel exemplifies the true meaning of giving.” states Les Friedman, ” He is a man that gives generously, without ever asking the question ‘What’s in it for me?’ Paul went on one Mikey’s Way Day at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital and immediately wanted to know how he could help, and he has never looked back from there. He helped us raise the money needed to put an i-Pad in every room of the pediatric in-patient hematology/oncology floor of the hospital. We are blessed to have him in our lives.”
