I can’t believe I found this video . I was just trying to find information on non profit and for profit . As I was told to do both. My son is also autistic and I’m working on a project to to build a school( pre-school) to create an inclusion program , with regular kids. I just can’t believe it also touched autism which is what my project is about .

I realized my purpose in life was no for profit And that’s why I’m here I wasn’t expecting this. I too was born and raised in Stl Missouri. Me watching this video was another part of god plans .

Good job Areva! I am so proud of you for helping 50,000 people and it just took the memory of your precious grandmother and the memory of the cheese and what the yummy cheese did for you!

GREAT quote!
Aslo I totally identify with standing in line for cheese since right at this moment. I was cutting up some of my favorite cheese. Cheese, it's worth standing in line for XD

Wow... she paints non-profits as being this amazing thing and does not point out the non-profit industrial complex and how she is making profit from her work. Makes it seem like “I’m making profit with my feelings, but don’t acknowledge that she does make profit from this” wild

I honestly feel like I should be doing this instead of Getting paid to oppress the already poor people in private practice funny thing is I thought law school would help me make change I was so naive😑

really coming down hard on us here in STL. Like I know we have some rough parts of town and our fair share of problems but damn. Other than that good lecture that helped a lot with a grant writing class I am in.
