This is a story about reaping what you sow, also known as the law of reciprocity.
When someone gives freely of their time or resources they set in motion forces that move others to give back to them.
Many of you know from our announcement in June, and the live video we did on the McLean Facebook Page (see video below) that Linda McLean announced a special surprise to help Amy Stoehr, the President of McLean International achieve her goal of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and using her talents to help children at an orphanage in Africa.
We started a Go Fund Me Campaign as a way to give back to an amazing lady who has given so much to others by helping her achieve this big goal!
If you have not met Amy Stoehr, here is a little background on her. She has been with McLean International since 2009 and is a gifted coach with a holistic understanding of management and business education principles and practices which bring a whole new level of transformational versatility to businesses in ALL industries.
Amy lives in Longmont, Colorado with her husband and two sons, and enjoys mountain climbing, hiking, and laughter-filled times with her family and friends.
Amy has changed lives all over the world with her work, her coaching, her love, her friendship, and her presence. Amy has a huge heart and is always willing to go the extra mile for people. This past year Amy shared that her lifelong dream is to travel to Africa, climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, and spend a week volunteering at an orphanage.
We want to help Amy achieve this lifelong dream and goal and this is why Linda set up this Go Fund me Campaign as a surprise for Amy and a way to allow those whose lives she has affected to say thanks and support Amy with her goals.
The funds that we raise via this Go Fund Me Campaign will be used for travel expenses and supplies for the week Amy will be spending at the orphanage. This trip is more than just a physical journey, it is an emotional and spiritual one as well, which will challenge and empower her to become a stronger leader for her clients, friends and family.
While the plan was to keep this a secret from Amy, we knew that there was no way of getting the word out while keeping it a secret, so we recently surprised her with the announcement of what we will be doing (watch the video below).
We then asked Amy to promise not to peek at her Go Fund Me page. This way she WILL experience a surprise.
The campaign will be open through October 12th, 2018 and then we will surprise Amy with the donation amount by announcing it live at the McLean International CEO Mastery Event in Scottsdale, Arizona on Wednesday October 17th.
If you are unable to attend the CEO Mastery event, we will be live that day with a video to share Amy’s reaction to all of the love and support that she will be blessed with.
