Nominator said: “Bernie because he is a very generous and kind man. For the last 10 years, Bernie has volunteered his Thursday morning doing origami at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Bernie has worked with the sick children as well as with the siblings and parents. He supplies all the paper. He recently published a second book and in the book are pictures of the origami hats that he made for the kids who need them. According to Bernie’s wife, Thursday is the best day of the week for him. He is patient and brings smiles and laughter to the children. It is my pleasure to know him as a friend and neighbor.
