"We all believe this is going to make a difference in the world.  We get to talk to real people about real things and get our words respected and listened to.  We can plan, organize, and manage big events like this and One Billion and youth events and learn how to do that well.  We are trusted and valued.  It feels good." -Dan and Wayne (Event Planning)
