Poignant, inspirational and extremely personal post by Marty Weintraub explaining why the IM-NY Charity Party (before SMX NY next week) means a bit more to him than a normal conference ’event’ and how we can all give back...

Marty has been so extremely generous with his time and expertise that few knew the challenges he is still facing in his personal life. Marty’s focus is so completely on helping others that even though he has been instrumental in making my own blog possible, I only recently became aware of this issue. Here is our opportunity to support Marty, our Industry, and charity. If each of us shares this event wherever we have reach online - from social networking platforms to our own blogs -  imagine the huge impact we can have. And there is another less obvious benefit. Best of the Web is a very established, long-standing online directory. Every online business can request a free listing so there is your reason to share this event with everyone: they can use the link on the charity event page to reach their directory and benefit themselves too.

Ok, this solidified it for me - I wasn’t sure if I’d attend, since I’m not gong to the SMX show, but I’m close enough to NY to attend the party.  Now, I will make sure I do.

I have not known Marty long but what I do know of him has just been made more significant.  Expressing himself like that was very endearing and of course the IM-NY charity party is worthy to mention.  I will certainly post about it in my blog to highlight the event.

Linked after a ping by Sebastian, nice to see the lift bridge on Marty’s blog.  I’m in Rochester so I am also quite familiar with the Mayo Clinic.  Good luck Marty.
