The GIFT Kick-Off Speech – Rotary March 2016 with Sam Beard

On March 2, 2017, hosted by the Rotary Club of Wilmington, Delaware’s most prestigious launching pad, we kicked off GIFT’s global programming.

GIFT is using the State of Delaware, our home geography, as a laboratory and proving ground. Learn locally. Experiment. Refine and prove our skills. Then go national or global. The GIFT Veteran’s Initiative is a great example. In Delaware we discovered Dr. Jennifer Tedesco at the local Veterans Administration Medical Center. Dt. Tedesco has use Jon Kabat-Zinn’s MBSR training and transformed the lives of hundreds of veterans suffering from PTSD and related trauma. She mentioned that there were similar success stories in 8 to 10 cities nationwide. That falls into our proven skill level. Our priority initiative is to create a national movement and impact 100,000 U.S. Veterans in the next 5 to 8 years.
