One Response to Lisa Hopper, Founder and CEO of World Care will be our April guest speaker

    Great Luncheon today! Lisa is an inspiration to us all.

    Did you know that the idea for WorldCare came to her in a dream?

    Many years ago, long before she lived in Arizona, one night Lisa had this amazing dream. She was standing in the open desert, in shorts and a t-shirt; surrounded by blue sky, mountains and lots of pallets. There was an airplane that had the word “WorldCare” on the side of it. Lisa did not know what the dream meant at the time but she knew she needed to follow it.

    Not only did Lisa follow her dream, she made it come true for so many more than just herself. Today WorldCre helps people in need all over the world. WorldCare can recycle almost anything and for those items that they do not currently recycle, Lisa and her team will find a way to recycle it. Nothing goes to waste.

    So today I take this away from our luncheon….follow your dream and make it come true. Lisa sure did.
