So my friend Kristina who loves figs spent last week continuing to eat raw during a hurricane that flooded our region and our city.
Kristina volunteered during about five days (this is a guestimate on my part) during the Hurricane flood Harvey. She somehow managed to exercise (running 6-10 miles) a day and then and rescued people in her really tall truck.
This will have to do as I could not find pictures of her truck of awesome!
I just want to take a moment to give high props for keeping focus on your clients that signed up for your 21 day challenge, while vlogging about Harvy; I also suspect that you kept up with posting your Instagram stories…, and fundraising for the local farmers that previously supplied your co-op, as well as other locals in need deeply affected by Floodicaine Harvey.
Inspiration to millions world-wide.
A business woman.
I honor the business woman and the volunteer Goddess in you for all the love that you give and light that you share. You have amazing focus to keep your work and lifestyle on track through these trying times. Thank you!
Kristina’s old not for profit co-op.
Bringing the world personal ground level coverage of the Flood of Harvey.
Volunteering at the largest local shelter and calling out for more volunteers.
Kristina even took a turn as a person who assisted people who need aid when using the toilet. She is a bright light in our world. She is humble.
All the while Kristina is eating raw.
Kristina also took the time to put together a Go Fund Me page to raise money for her friends who are the farmers and former suppliers of her Rawfully Organic Co-op who’s crops and lively hood were wiped out by the flooding.
Please donate, the goal for the fundraiser needs to be met.
Kristina took time to acknowledge other rescue people and volunteers.
(This image most likely not from Harvey; however it is from another time she also acknowledged volunteers.)
Kristina, took it upon herself to do some more local ground reporting shortly after the water’s began to recede. The image was particularly poignant for me as a local; the overpass she is standing on normally has air flowing about 20 ” underneath. Not all bridges were verified safe to cross, this includes overpasses.
I still have no idea how she managed to stay raw during this trial of the soul, mostly due to lack of fresh resources.
Next, while still in the middle of the 21 day challenge she decided to up the anti by requesting people grab a partner and get them to go fully raw with you, preferably a family member. (This image is from Kristina’s first Fully Raw Challenge with her mother. You will notice Kristina’s backyard is flood free.)
Those are the most fresh and up to date acorns I have on my friend Kristina.
About Thursday, after Harvey was on it’s way out Acorn Thrower saw butterflies, hummingbirds, blue Jays, dragonflies, squirrels, and a rabbit. So nature managed to handily survive the flood.
