What a day we had today, gathering to honor our beloved musician Kofi Burbridge on what would have been his 60th birthday. We supported local nonprofits in six cities – Atlantic, Boston, Charlotte, Jacksonville, NYC and DC – to address food insecurity.
Everyone worked very hard. Lots of love and many great stories were shared. Kofi would have been overjoyed.
