The Proud to be Me Foundation was established in 2011. Our mission is to create a community where everyone is able to realize their full potential and can confidently say "I am Proud to be Me" by embracing both their own and others' uniqueness. Our vision for the future is a society in which empathy, acceptance, responsibility and opportunity are combined to benefit the individual and also the community at large. The ultimate goal would see our mission spread without boundaries. There are many very worthy not for profit programs and initiatives that are fundamental to creating the changes we believe in. "Proud to be Me" will hold events throughout the year in support of as many of these programs as possible to help build a stronger community for all of us.
