PR tour with Whole Foods Market

Rarely do we have the opportunity to look into the eyes of another and acknowledge them for the intangible gifts they have given to us and to others.  What a gift Jeremiah, Charles and I received last month when we had the opportunity to do just that, thanks to David Lannon and the Whole Foods team for inviting us in to their Northern California region.  Touring our way from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz and all the way through Silicon Valley we had the opportunity to be received by Whole Foods team members, sharing stories and coming face to face with the very people who changed lives in Kenya.

Jeremiah and I told them over and over that it was a modern day miracle for this to happen.  I mean two guys who met over 12 years ago at an orphanage in Kenya now standing in front of an audience of a Fortune 500 Company…really?  The miraculous part was seeing that it didn’t matter, Fortune 500 Company or two guys who met at an orphanage in Kenya, we connected as people who want to make a positive difference in our world.

It is most certainly a special time for all of us at CTC to reflect on the past 10 years and acknowledge all the miracles and gifts of others that have allowed us to be here.  A BIG heartfelt thank you to all of you for playing your part and empowering Jeremiah, Charles and me so that we could come face to face with our partners at Whole Foods, acknowledging them and welcoming them into our CTC community.

Onward!

Peace,

Z
