No matter your part . . . YOU can change the world.

"You have to find that place that brings out the human in you.  The soul in you. The love in you." --r.m. drake

You know your own story so well, that compassion takes the driver's seat.  All that beauty that happens in your life is this deep and sweet gift and you want to pay it forward like nobody's business.  I'm so privileged to partner with two organizations that are making a difference for families and children.

The Children's Museum of Cleveland



The Museum welcomes over 100,000 visitors annually and has one of the most diverse visitor bases of museums in the region. 

As a leader in imaginative and creative play, The Children’s Museum of Cleveland (CMC) gives children a place and the tools to write their own script and discover their own adventures through our interactive exhibits and programs. A child will be naturally drawn to those activities that most excite and engage him or her.

They offer an open-ended learning environment giving children the opportunity to imagine, experiment, problem-solve and communicate – building skills for a 21st-century learner.  They are an advocate for self-directed play as one of the best ways for a young child to learn.

They are a museum for all children – of all abilities, backgrounds, and ages. In their beautiful, historic new home, they respect not only childhood, but also the parent and caregiver as the child’s first teacher. As a vital community resource, they provide experiences that can bridge a child’s learning between the Museum, home, and school.

The Vision:

The Children’s Museum of Cleveland envisions a community where all families have access to the educational resources they need to raise creative, curious, healthy and well-educated children.

The Mission:

The Children’s Museum of Cleveland promotes learning through play using innovative exhibits and programs designed for all children from birth to age 8.  The Museum is dedicated to being a valued resource to parents, families and community institutions that serve young children.

Trades of Hope



Trades of Hope empowers women to create sustainable businesses worldwide. We want women to realize their potential as world changers, business owners, dream creators, and heroes of their own stories. 

So many women live in poverty, not because they lack abilities, but because they lack opportunity. Trades of Hope gives women that opportunity for a better life. Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope's help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of HOPE!

We work with the artisans themselves and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. Some women have been rescued from sex slavery. Others are raising handicapped children alone. Some are in war torn countries and others have AIDS. These women have never had the chances we've had, yet they are just like us in so many ways. They love their families and hope and dream of a better life for them.
