From My Heart

You have been through everything anyone could imagine one person can take. You have fought the battle, pretty much won the battle, and now where are you? It is now time to go back to life, be whoever you were before that terrible day, and try to put the past behind you. It is not that easy, and I say this from my heart. After all the experiences I went through, I felt as if I was a different person. I looked at everything differently, not because I chose to, but because I had to. Things that were important to...

Wells Fargo Grant

Last Thursday, my husband and I attended a Community Partners Breakfast from Wells Fargo and my foundation received a $1000 grant. The Alesia Shute Foundation, along with about 40 other small foundations and non-profits, were honored and it was such a wonderful experience. We are all caught up in our lives, our problems, and our families, so this morning it was nice to sit back and meet so many people who wake up every day and volunteer their time to help others. I know all the work I do to make my foundation run...
