Thank You - The Ripple Effect

The Krista Foundation | Krista Foundation Press, Community, Sustaining Service

2012 GCA Honorees Joe, Trise, and Sharon

Thank you for expanding The Ripple Effect!

More than 375 enthusiastic guests filled Campion Ballroom to celebrate the power of service leadership to change our world. The Krista Foundation honored three exemplary service leaders making a ripple effect. 

The 2012 Global Citizen Award honorees included Sharon London of EarthCorps (Environment), Trise Moore in parent involvement (Urban United States), and Joe Whinney of Theo Chocolate (the Developing World). The three recipients were honored with a beautiful handmade award and a video crafted and narrated by Krista Colleagues.

Colleague Speaker Chris BhangKrista Colleagues Amy McNair and Chris Bhang illuminated the ripple effects that service volunteer experiences continue making in their lives, and how the Krista Foundation mentoring community helps them transform those experiences into lives of service leadership in law and education.

Leading up to the event, 75 Krista Colleagues (including 32 Colleagues in attendance) had contributed more than $9,000 in gifts and pledges as challenge to guests to contribute. We're thrilled that nearly 75% of guests were brand new to the Foundation's vision: empowering young adults to transform service experiences into lives of service leadership. Their tremendous generosity raised $30,000 to further the Krista Foundation's mission.
