Give you one guess…

It took 6 nominations before he won an Oscar.  He didn’t give up film because of one project!  He kept going on to make more and more until he finally took one home for the Revenant.  We all felt like we won with him because we have so much respect for the roles he’s played and for his gracious attitude.

Looking forward to seeing this one… I know, we’ve been over here working too much on the Green these days, we’re behind on the moving pictures.  I’ll be in LA soon, so I’ll be sure to catch this one with a friend in my down time.

But speaking of the green, his acceptance speech was all about the responsibility we have to the planet and I adore him even more for it!  Watch his full speech here

It was refreshing to see him take a stance on something bigger than his well deserved moment, but to share his platform with a pressing issue that is so important to mankind.   Let’s not miss out on opportunities to bring humanity together & heal the planet because we are too focused on what divides us.  While inclusion is a very big matter that hurts the very soul of extremely talented minorities and women, I believe we can find ourselves and each other when we come together for a common goal.  In working to take care of what matters to us all, we can see each other for who we are.   This planet is our home, we only have 1 and we should take care of her.

I’m looking forward to Stretch launching as it’s just the base for what we are building over here.  Our long term vision is to improve our impact on the planet by providing us with the tools to do so.  A meal planning app that rewards us for Stretching our ingredients to eat Organics is just what we need!  Sign-up today!
