As I sit here in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport waiting to board a flight, albeit not too patiently, I find myself reflecting. I was invited to spend the weekend with some amazing people working on a project with Think First National National Injury Prevention. Think First, an amazing non-profit dedicated to “prevent(ing) brain, spinal cord and other traumatic injuries through education, research and advocacy” has a really synergistic mission to The RAWZ Fund: While we look to improve lives once an injury is sustained, Think First works to prevent these injuries.
Through my involvement with our Rawz Fund partners, trying to build a new life myself, and being inspired by Andy’s journey, I’m blessed to recognize that while incredibly diverse, survivors of life-changing injuries are still human beings. Like most people we look for experiences that enrich our lives while seeking connection to others. So what does this have to do with minimally processed pet food and why am I writing this blog post?
I always like to say that the simplest way to state RAWZ’s mission is that our aim is to improve lives! Sounds grandiose yes, but it is surprisingly simple; my family and the RAWZ team have committed to giving pets minimally processed nutrition options. By eating RAWZ’s amazing products pets lives are improved, furthermore, RAWZ supports amazing non-profits enriching the lives of survivors of serious injury.
I can’t express my level of gratitude for the life I’ve been afforded the opportunity to have and the amount of support I’ve received. It’s an honor to be on the RAWZ team as we work to improve the lives of pets and people: We’d love for you and your pet to join us!
