This Friday’s Program
Rebecca Pierce Murray
Our featured presenter discovered The Bird and The Hippo story nearly 50 years after writing it while rifling through some old papers. Instantly, she knew she had found a treasure. Each time she shared the story aloud, Rebecca’s audience encouraged her to publish it. Three years later she had done exactly that. In bringing her childhood story to the world, Rebecca hopes to remind others that aspirations of youth can remain a source of inspiration for creative adventures later in life. She will also share how she is working with Boys and Girls clubs to bring the story and its messages to life. Today you will hear The Bird and The Hippo story, a bit of its back story, and how the book is being used currently as a leadership development tool with disadvantaged youth. Now, it’s with great pleasure that I introduce The Bird and The Hippo: A 10 year old’s wisdom rediscovered, rekindled and reinvested, presented by its author, Rebecca Pierce Murray!
We work for healthy children & families
Our thought is that by investing in children, women, and families, we're making the best possible bet on our collective future.
We’re local, but with global impact
Even as individuals, we have global impact. Through our network of clubs and international projects, we make measurable impact in the lives of people in emerging areas around the world.
