Dear January

28 Jan

We have had quite the start to the new year.

On January 18th 40 entrepreneurs from around the U.S. met each other for the first time in New York to make a difference for Safe Horizon (a women’s shelter for victims of violence) and each other with the generous helping hand of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.

For some of us this meant cooking or baking delicious treats, for others this meant handcrafting personal gifts or sharing truly touching and inspiring stories, songs, and poetry.

For my mother and I specifically it meant donating 54 copies of the book we created along with art kits for the women and children at the shelter.

This image from MSLO’s photographer perfectly captures the feeling most of us walked away with after this experience.

I was inspired and challenged to be a better artist and human by every person I had the pleasure if meeting on this trip. Each individual radiated unique creativity and compassion. I’m looking forward to our next gathering already and excited about the possibilities amongst this amazing group.
