We haven't done it alone.
The greatest thing you can give someone is your belief in them. We've been grateful to have had countless support over the last 10 years. These Founding Champions have inspired us to chase our Dreams.
To our Founding Champions,
We like to think of this page as a tribute to you: incredibly brilliant humans that (have and continue to) make our Dreams possible.
While words will never do you justice, we’d be remiss if we didn’t at least try.
From the very beginning — when we were just 11 years old — we knew the importance of surrounding ourselves with great company; people who loved unconditionally, had exceptional knowledge, and pushed us to be the best we could possibly be. Above all else, people who believed in us and our work.
You enabled us, motivated us, taught us, mentored us, drove us, advised us, and guided us.
You drove us to events when we were too young to drive. You filed our initial legal documents so we could become a REAL charity. You filed countless trademark applications. You advised us on various legal matters. You even got us a Costco membership and signed our PO box application when we were too young, (thanks, Mom)!
While we could never repay you for your time and sacrificial giving, know that we will forever be grateful for your inexhaustible generosity. You, in addition to many others, will be the reason that one day, we will live in a world where every child can go to school and chase their Dreams.
These Founding Champions’ legacies will transcend for generations to come. We are forever indebted to these magnificent souls:
Dr. Jim Chadwell
