2012 Captain Planet Gala!

Recently I went to the Captain Planet Gala! I love donating and supporting the Captain Planet Foundation. :D I had a really great time meeting a lot of people and catching up with friends. The panel speakers there were Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, and President Jimmy Carter! I also got to meet a woman that I had been looking forward to seeing that night that I really admire, Sara Blakley Founder of Spanx! She was just as awesome in person and I was honored to meet her. :)
