We are blessed to live in a land of opportunity. However, "for of those to whom much is given, much is required" as John F. Kennedy said. We hope to improve the life conditions of others who are less fortunate but no less worthy of abundance and joy.
As we have become more aware of our environmental footprint, we have also become more aware of our responsibility to Mother Earth. We aim to enact positive environmental change in both local and global communities.
