This fundraising network event is the brainchild of Rebecca Ott & Gena Rumble. We recently had the pleasure of meeting Lorna Owens a renowned midwife, nurse, & attorney who created the Footprints Foundation. Owens has spent her life working with and behalf of women, first as a health care provider and then as a legal advocate and firebrand.

“We believe any model designed to help women must include a reduction in maternal and infant mortality, education, entrepreneurship and advocacy.”

The Footprints Foundation is working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somaliland, Jamaica, & Florida City to:
-Reduce maternal and infant mortality in low income communities
-Fight teenage pregnancy
-Campaign against female genital mutilation

We hope you make it out to support this great cause, buy some rad jewelry for you and yours, & get to know PI professionals in the greater south Florida area invested in maintaining exceptional ethics.

Contact me directly if you or your business are interested in getting involved with this event!
