When Kathie David decided to have a bridal shower, she wanted to do things a little differently. Instead of writing a list of presents for her and her husband, she decided that she would ask her guests to donate to Claire’s Place Foundation instead.
Claire’s Place Foundation was original set up by Claire Wineland, who has been living with cystic fibrosis since she was a baby. David first came across Wineland when she heard her speak at an event in California and was compelled to help.
The video from Hope Boat Films, shows David’s bridal shower speech, where she talks about how inspired she was by Wineland and how she wanted to help her cause. David has gone on to use her professional skills to continue to raise money and awareness for Claire’s Place and was recently elected the new fundraising chair for the foundation.
