THE STORY:

 

Hello All,

For Paul's Birthday last October, I thought about giving him an experience rather than spending money on material things. I reached out to Tony Hsieh of Zappos.com to see if he'd help me surprise my fiancé with a meet and greet! He and his team invited us to tour Zappos, The Downtown Project and allowed us to join them for their quarterly All Hands Meeting that showcased a number of speakers. What happened next changed our lives.

“I have something called cystic fibrosis and I was suppose to die when I was a baby. Then they said I was supposed to die when I was 10. Then when I went into a coma at 13, I was supposed to die then. Now I’m 19 and hopefully I can make it to 21 so I can just go clubbing once. But I don’t care about death because it is eminent and out of our control but what we do have control over is if we are proud of our lives. We live in a society that benefits from us continuously looking for happiness, and dreams and goals externally. But if we say no, we are not going to go looking externally for happiness -- we are alive and that is beautiful and that is all we need, then we are beating the system and we can live a life that we are proud of.” Claire Wineland is a 19-year-old inspirational speaker, YouTube phenom and the founder of the Clarity Project. Her speech at the Zappos All Hands Meeting riveted Paul and I to where we can never see life the same way again.

My girlfriends and sister in law wanted to do something wonderful by giving me a bridal shower but I threw in a twist which they were so kind to accommodate. Since Paul and Chloe have entered my life, I've been fulfilled in ways that I could have never imagined. I’ve learned that when you truly give of yourself, you receive the most. With that said, I decided that this bridal shower isn’t just a celebration of my life with Paul and Chloe but a celebration about life in general and how beautiful it is when you choose it to be.

I’m so honored to share that Claire Wineland will be attending my bridal shower so she can share her amazing life with my friends and family. And in lieu of gifts for me, I ask that you please donate what you can to Claire’s amazing foundation, Claire's Place Foundation.

Love,

Kathie David
