It appears Shaka continues his philanthropic efforts as just yesterday, he visited the Northern Neck Boys and Girls Club for a fundraiser which sold out.

“I have appreciation for everyone in this room because right now there are a lot of people with a shared vision to make the Boys & Girls Club here in the Northern Neck even better,” Smart said. “For all of you young men and young ladies the concept of appreciation is critical. I have a saying I stole from my wife because she’s smarter than me and she says ‘appreciation is the currency of success.’”

“Reflect on what you are thankful for,” Smart added. “If you think about what you’re thankful for and I bet you’ll be able to attract more of those good things in your life.”
