Partnering

There is strength in numbers. Partnering with others around the world enables us to have greater reach, insights and impact for those we love and aim to serve. Since our inception, we have worked diligently to build a vetted list of partners who we can support through referrals, event promotion, participation, volunteering and program/product sales. 

We believe in being part of a network that values honesty, kindness, and compassion. As such, we are selective of the partners and events we choose to work with in order to maintain our integrity for those we represent. If you would like to be part of our partner network, please email us and provide more information.
