Each week during the summer before my junior year of college I drove an hour to the World of Children offices in Pleasanton. Despite the total commute of 2.5hrs I was always excited to spend my day with the passionate and affable women working behind the scenes. Lynn Naylor, the Executive Director of World of Children, is one of the most enthusiastic, positive and warm hearted people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. In addition to Lynn, I spent each week alongside Jenn Merkel and Annette Andre. Working with this team of women was a constant inspiration. It was an amazing experience to see just how much work is necessary to raise and allocate funds to support other organizations working in various ways to improve the lives of children. Through my research at World of Children I learned a lot about the many non-profits they hold to high esteem as their honorees. It is because of the dedicated work of people like the women I worked with this summer that the World of Children honorees on the ground domestically and abroad are able to continue providing health, education, and safety to so many.
