happy-thanksgiving-day-pic-26Sending you best wishes for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving

We sure do have a lot to be thankful for here at Claire’s Place Foundation and YOU are one of them.  Thank you for supporting our efforts this year and making a real difference in the lives of children and families living with cystic fibrosis.

Our Founder, Claire Wineland, had the opportunity to speak to 1500 Zappos employees about what a gift it is to make a positive difference for others.  Enjoy a little inspirational boost and remember that even a small gesture by you can make a big impact in a CF family’s life!

TEDx Malibu ~ Living Out Loud!

November 14, 2012

What a great time we had at the TEDx Malibu event!  I had intense butterflies as I was walking on, it’s much scarier in real life – but my nerves passed after a few seconds.  I really love sharing my story with people, and I think they enjoyed it as well!  If you have never been to a TEDx event, it’s something you should add to your list.  The other presenters were amazing and I left feeling inspired to LIVE OUT LOUD!   TEDx Malibu 17
