Hey Crazy Amazing Humans community–we’re coming at you today with our guest from the Ukraine-Poland border!
I’m sure you are aware of the war happening in Ukraine and the heroic efforts being made by President Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian people. And you may have also heard about those trying to help in big and small ways from the international community- not only with the war effort, but with the refugee crisis of people fleeing war-torn areas. It’s truly inspirational. If you have ever wondered what these efforts look like in real time in that part of the world, then this episode is for you!
In this episode, we’re with Maxwell Eaton, an entrepreneur and restaurateur, speaking to us from halfway around the world at the Poland-Ukraine border. There he’s working with World Central Kitchen (a non-profit founded by celebrity chef José Andrés) to help feed refugee families there. Maxwell is the epitome of someone who asked the question “How can I best help?”, dropped everything and showed up. So good!
Join us as Maxwell shares stories and his experiences in this important humanitarian effort. We’re also including extensive video of Maxwell and the team’s efforts cooking and serving for thousands daily on our Instagram (be sure you’re following us) and in our YouTube version of this podcast (subscribe here).
We’re sure you’ll be inspired by hearing first-hand about the teamwork making the dreamwork for people in need. You may have even seen the National Geographic documentary “We Feed People” from Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard (available for viewing on Disney+). The film spotlights José Andrés and his nonprofit, World Central Kitchen, with their incredible mission and evolution over 12 years. They started out being a scrappy group of grassroots volunteers and then became one of the most highly regarded humanitarian aid organizations in the disaster relief sector.
We’re always here to remind you that any gesture of kindness has the potential to create a Crazy Amazing Human experience, one person at a time. You have the power to create that every day because you are Crazy Amazing! And we really appreciate you as part of our community.
