Sincere Thanks…

With my heart full of gratitude, I’d like to recognize the following people who helped make this dream come to life:

Craig Bedard
Upon learning of The Grateful Heart Foundation, Craig kindly offered to host the Web site for me, despite his incredibly hectic schedule. Thank you very much, Craig.

Jack Canfield
I am indebted to Jack Canfield and his seven-day ‘Breakthrough to Success’ training program, which inspired me to act on my long-held dream and bring it to reality. The program was a much-needed reminder of the abundance and magic of the universe. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jack.

Terry and Brenda Doleman
I would like to particularly acknowledge my very special uncle and aunt for their love, support, and encouragement over the years. They have been an unfailing beacon of light in my life for which I am immensely fortunate. I am grateful for their generous support of me, in so many ways, on so many levels. Thank you and biggest of hugs for everything Terry and Brenda.

Neil Grocholski
I am exceptionally touched by Neil’s generous offer to create this astonishing Web site as a new journey he is embarking on. His hard work, insight, creative prowess and gracious attitude are exemplary and inspiring. I cannot thank you enough, Neil, for being the catalyst that allowed the important message of The Grateful Heart Foundation to get out in the world. You encapsulate all that is wonderful.

Ian Gee
To my loyal companion Ian, who has stood by me through the ups and downs of life over many years: I am grateful for your steadfast presence and your continual support, love and friendship. I love you deeply and my life is better because you’re in it. Thank you for everything you do for me – you’re the best!

Stephen Lund   -  Words to the Wise Inc.
I continue to be astounded by Steve’s remarkable writing and editing talent – a creative force I have seen so often expressed during the many years of teamwork we’ve enjoyed. As you know, I have the highest respect for you on so many levels, Steve. To me, you’re already an Ironman!

Jean McAllister
I am very fortunate to have been able to work with Jean over the past couple of years. She has a true gift for outstanding creative and generously donated her vision and talent to capture the spirit of The Grateful Heart Foundation in an inspiring identity. I really appreciate your creative flair and gentle heart, Lady Jean.

Kirsten McEwing - Kaizen Fotodesign
I am indebted to Kirsten for portraying in photographs the essence of my special bond with my grandparents. Through her creative lens, she managed to capture a lifetime of love on a beautiful fall afternoon. I very much appreciate your time, your artful talent, your generosity and your genuine belief in the Foundation’s causes, Kirsten. And thanks for being the angel that brought Neil forward!

Dan Pittman
For your time, patience and digital manipulation talents that made Kirsten’s photographs shine just a little brighter, I’m very grateful, Dan. Good luck in Germany.

Samantha Ross
A generous and caring soul, Sam was swift to join me in becoming one of the Foundation’s founding financial donors. I valued the passion with which she embraced its causes as well as her ongoing support of those less fortunate than her. You are an excellent role model for your incredibly talented and big-hearted son, Taylor.

Darvin Schafer
Darvin was an enthusiastic cheerleader for The Grateful Heart Foundation from its inception, and he generously offered to donate a portion of each of his real estate transactions to support its causes. Darvin, I am grateful for your kind heart and friendship over the years. You are a sparkling presence!

Carol Scott
I have enjoyed and relied on Carol’s wisdom and friendship for over 10 years. It was through an important discussion and brainstorming session with her that we came up with the perfect and fitting name of The Grateful Heart Foundation. Thanks, as usual, for your perceptive insight, enthusiasm and unwavering encouragement, Carol.

Don Taylor
I have had the pleasure of working with Don over the last few years and have always been inspired by his big heart. He and Unicom Graphics generously offered to print The Grateful Heart Foundation’s identity package, which first brought the vision to a tangible form. I appreciate your help so much, Don.

Kim Veness     http//
I love that after a chance meeting with Kim in Arizona, he turned out to be an invaluable source of knowledge regarding the set-up of a charitable foundation. Each time we met, Kim made me feel as if there was no way I could fail and that the world would simply be standing in line to help. His confidence in me came at a crucial time in the incubation process, for which I am thankful.

Joanna Wright
Joanna has been my soul sister for over 10 years. We share the same name and, more than that, a bond that is priceless. I have always appreciated Jo’s support, honesty, intelligence and enduring confidence in me. True to her nature, she generously offered to be one of the founding financial supporters of The Grateful Heart Foundation, ensuring my vision would become a reality. Joanna, you are a very talented woman. I am honored to know you and have you in my life.

In addition to the names mentioned above, countless others have stood by me, educated me, and offered guidance, honesty, support, direction and love. They too were instrumental in bringing The Grateful Heart Foundation to life. Thank you and blessings to all of you. You know who you are.
