This has been the big question. My answer has been: “Where are we not headed?” Everything is coming at us full force and we are loving every second of it! Whether we are being retweeted byJodi Picoult, featured in an amazing seven minute mini-documentary, or talking to other schools about bringing them a Lori’s Hands chapter, Lori’s Hands has been doing big things.
However, a sneak peak into the next few weeks is looking even better than what’s already going on: On March 21st, Liz and I head off to Arizona to attend the Clinton Global Initiative UniversityConference. The conference is held at Arizona State, beginning Friday and ending Sunday. We will be participating in all things awesome, such as listening to amazing guest speakers, soon to be announced. Last year, the conference featured President Obama, Stephen Colbert, and Jada Pinkett Smith, just to name a few. Liz and I plan on telling Bill and Chelsea Clinton all about Lori’s Hands (and maybe snapping a few selfies while we are at it). Aside from networking with some of the most amazing students in the world and getting advice from some of the most fantastic people, our weekend ends with a service project! We will spend Sunday working beside the Clintons and fellow CGIU participants… should be awesome.
While Liz and I are in Arizona, everyone else will be participating in Mom Prom! Mom Prom takes place on March 21st and it is an event hosted by The Real Charitable Housewives of Delaware and East Pennsylvania. It is a night of dancing, dressing up, raffles, drinks, food and fun. The money from this year’s Mom Prom is benefiting our own Lori’s Hands and the amazing, local B+ Foundation! We are so excited and so thankful the RCHD has decided to include us.
As for the month of April, our founder, Sarah, will be heading to Chicago! She was invited to attend the Community Campus Partnerships for Health Conference where she will be making sure everyone is aware of Lori’s Hands!
