ISPA Conference, Las Vegas – The Morning of Day 1

Just entering the Opening General Session at ISPA today was super exhilarating.  The visuals, people and music really hit you.  ALSO, we were greeted by ‘live’ moving 9′ tall trees, striking poses with such surreal beauty, covered in leaves and flowers…wow was all you could hear as people entered…wow.

Seated, we enjoyed a chair climbing athletic poser who awed the crowd with his muscles, courage and expertise…another wow.

Ella Stimpson, ISPA Chairman (ChairWOMAN as I like to say), gave a wonderful opening speech, sharing both her business and personal gains and losses over the last year, bringing tears to our eyes with her transparency. 

Debra Szekely (I believe Debra is 96 years old) of Rancho la Puerto, then awarded Blake Mycoskie the annual Alex Szekely Humanitarian Award (Alex is Debra’s late son).  That is when the feeling of self-empowerment that ISPA is so famous for, really hit me. 

Blake is the founder and chief shoe giver of TOMS and the ‘One for One’ Movement.  Blake’s company manufactures change, with his Shoes and Sight missions, all around the world.  He is truly a great example of ‘the power of one’.  Shoes can make the difference between education and no education for children in many countries; and as well, the scope of visual impairment worldwide is staggering.  So, for every pair of shoes or glasses their company sells, they give one back to a child/person in need, somewhere in the world.  

This is a story of epic proportions, and one you should read if you believe in the power of one, and if you don’t believe, you will, after you visit this website…you alone, CAN make a difference. 

A new announcement is also coming from TOMS on November 5, that is ‘something bigger than us’.  You can be sure ISPA delegates will be tuned in on that day…I know I will.
