Sara is an art teacher in Indiana. She is educating her high school students about The Younique Foundation and will be making ceramic bowls with her classes to send to The Haven Retreat for participants to use for kintsugi.

 

Matt is retired from the military. He spends his time rucking (the act of walking or hiking with a weighted backpack). Matt turned his passion into a way to support The Younique Foundation when he started posting his workouts on Facebook with the hashtag #YWeRuck, explaining that the weight in his backpack was a representation of the weight a survivor carries their entire life. Men and women from all over the world have started to ruck in support of survivors, all inspired by Matt’s example.
