"The Stars Pitch for Education" is the foundation's premiere online fundraising event. It's underway now and runs through Thursday, May 18. For a chance to meet the man behind the incomparable Dr. Burke, or to check out the full list of items being auctioned off by the foundation, click the link above!

The organization was founded by Robinson's wife, Rachel, to honor the legendary ballplayer (left) and his achievements, and to carry on his legacy of determination and commitment.

The Foundation strives to help promising young men and women achieve excellence each year through various educational and leadership initiatives. Join Isaiah and others in enhancing the efforts of talented students of color with limited financial resources but strong leadership capabilities and aspirations.

Wow! I wish I had seen this back when it was still possible to bid on lunch with Isaiah. I would give quite a bit to be the winner of that honor. Although, I'm not sure that I could afford to really even be in the running, it would have been fun to try.

Wow, a great actor and a great cause. Way to go!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
