Life has a funny way of making us realize our purpose. What I've learned is that in order for us to realize our purpose in this world, we first need to realize what actually matters to us. Easier said than done. I say that because much of the world doesn't truly know what actually matters until life forces us to realize it. Unfortunately, this realization often comes in the form of a devastating and traumatic life event. For parents like me, traumatic events in our own adult lives would measure no where near traumatic experiences forced upon our children. For this reason, I've decided to redirect the flow of energy from personal despair, guilt and depression; to positive, critical, and direct impacts on under-represented community issues (like childhood trauma) through strategic community partnerships and revenue driven philanthropy.
#ONLYSTRONGER aims to shine the light on underrepresented causes and issues by spearheading a movement within the San Diego communities to drive active engagement, social justice and victim advocacy. Through community support and brand development, we intend to continuously raise funds for Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and its programs that provide prevention, intervention, education and advocacy programs for children and their families. We are committed to becoming a brand for positive social impact and a business driven by community demand for justice and support.
It doesn't get easier. We only get stronger.
We will support and amplify the promotion of the health and well-being of childhood trauma victims and their families. We will accomplish this through digital peer to peer advocacy, community partnerships, and revenue driven philanthropy.
To create a world where one's focused support on a community translates to a community's focused support on one.
