On Saturday, March 18, 2017, Corporate Visions Larkspur Office – Teresa Kwan and Peter her husband, Francisco Ramirez and Charlotte Kobayashi, along with 3 other CVI friends, helped San Francisco Rotary pack 11,000 meals to be shipped to the Philippines.
The event was held at Redwood High School gymnasium, sponsored by SF Rotary, the organizer, Ron Gin, who committed to have 100 packers for one and a half hours.
Additionally, CVI invited Laurel Botsford to partner with SF Rotary to share information on Sex Trafficking, the second highest, illegal industry throughout the world. All of California, Denver and Atlanta are some of the hot spots in the United States and Laurel was able to make additional connections with individuals to collaborate with them going forward. It is an extremely serious problem, globally, where young gals and some boys, ages 12-14, are being coerced to enter the world of underground slavery.
