Favorite Aspect of CFT
"Helping build the bridge between scholarship fund holders and scholarship recipients."
“We tend to think that it's our job to save the world. But maybe it's not you or I who saves the world, but the people we know. Or the people those people know. Maybe what saves the world isn't lone rangers of social justice. Maybe what saves the world is relationships, rich webs of social connections. Maybe friendship saves the world.”
