Giving Back

Here at Purpose, I am very passionate about the natural cycle of abundance.  What we allow to flow through us and serve others always comes back around to us in kind.  It’s my strong belief that this natural flow and balance applies to every element of life…kindness, generosity, understanding, support, forgiveness, wellness, opportunity.  Thanks to the abundance that serving Purpose clients brings to (and through) me, I am able to strongly support a number of causes I am particularly passionate about and am delighted to share with you.  Most of these allow others to get the support they need in maximizing their own potential – an intention I deeply honor.  Thank you for your help in making the support of these organizations possible!

With great delight, I am moving forward in creating The Little Bit Foundation, a new nonprofit organization chartered to provide high-quality animal food to creatures living in homeless/abused animal shelters throughout the United States.  If we are serving each other with the greatest care and compassion, then the best food available should be served in hospitals, schools, and shelters.  The animals we appreciate and benefit from as loving pets and family members are no exception.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, until the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
