"Make your work to be in keeping with your purpose" Leonardo Da Vinci

This is the start of a creatribution, a FUNdraiser and a passion project. I've been blessed to find work that feeds my soul and waters my mind. This hasn't always been the case, and I found myself thinking on a bike ride - how do people find their purpose in life?

Some say it's luck, others says it's graft or taking chances when no one else would place a bet. What I know is that there's always a good story. Wednesday, June 27th, Purpose Stories will bring 5 speakers together to share their stories of discovering purpose in life and at work. Join us for an evening of learning, inspiration and laughter.

This event is a fundraiser, all dollars will go towards fundraising for a project close to my heart: Legado: Namuli. Founded by Majka Burhardt, Legado is an international organization working to protect the world’s most threatened mountain ecosystems by empowering the people who call them home.

"Mountain conservation has made massive strides. But it needs to go further. Let’s push it into the future by seeing the whole picture. Will it demand more innovative solutions? More creativity? More nuance? Absolutely, times three. I am willing to bet that inspires you as much as it inspires me." Majka Burhardt

The more I learned about Majka's leadership in the conservation and climbing world, the more I was inspired to fundraise finding a different way to protect wild spaces. I will be traveling to Mount Namuli, in northern Mozambique in August to support three days of lightyear leadership training. In partnership with the communities around Mount Namuli, we will elevate the impact of conservation, integrate choice, and develop greater possibility for current and future generations that depend on the mountain.

Watch the award winning film following an international crew as they push the bounds of friendship, climbing conventions, and scientific research on the 2,000-foot granite face of Mozambique’s second highest mountain, Mount Namuli.
