Help from Canada

I’ve mentioned Ken previously, we met in New York at the NextGen event in November. He is witty and very enthusiastic. He’s from Canada and is married and two children, so he has a purpose to stay focused.

We started talking in early December and I had given him some ideas and connections on how he could promote his non profit fundraiser project. We had a great time talking and I knew it was the beginning of a new friendship.

Yesterday I received an email from Ken that made me take note. I called him and we began to talk about how we might work together. The conversation unfolded so easily it was amazing.

Ken has a keen interest in teaching vegan cooking at UBU and would now like to help raise funds for the school through encouraging others to produce a silent auction, golf tournament and pursue corporate sponsorships for events and for the construction of the school in general.

It is incredible to me someone of Ken’s talent and skills shows up at the same time at the same event I attended in New York and then to take it to the level of wanting to help with the school.

I am always humbled by the Universe and how I know UBU is on the right track!

About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
