Lela the Pig
Lela is an acronym which stands for : Lead. Encourage. Live. Act.
Lela the Pig was created after the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010. Her goal is to collect donations from guests who attend the Salsa and Salsa Tour (www.salsaandsalsa.com) in Mazatlan, Cozumel and Cabo San Lucas. Lela the Pig has raised more than $80,000 USD and counting... Lela the Pig continues to donate each month to a different cause around the globe.
Like so many of you, I have been working my little hooves off with a variety of amazing causes and charities these past couple of years. Every time I do something for others my heart grows bigger and bigger full of compassion. The first words that came to mind were: Lead, Encourage, Live and Act.
Leadership in my opinion is one of the greatest characteristics one can hold. Having leadership supports the idea of encouraging others to make a difference, living a life filled with compassion and acting on our instincts to donate to the difficult situations that occur around the world.
An umbrella stands for security, shelter and safety, and for that reason I hold my pink umbrella high over the world.
Mahatma Gandhi once said," You must become the change you want to see in the world." Or the late Steve Jobs,who said, "Innovation, distinguishes between a leader and a follower."
And even though I am just one beautiful pig, I believe that the smallest of all acts can truly make difference in the world.
