Giving Back to Foster Together

On the 3rd of March 2019, my friend Kyle - a father, a husband, a mentor, a leader… the most evolved human being I had ever met, was killed in a helicopter crash in Kenya while visiting his friends. His loss was felt all around the world by people with whom Kyle had interacted with on this earth. The days following his death shook me to my core about the purpose of living and the prospects of dying. Kyle’s greatest joy in life was his family. When I last saw Kyle in October 2018, after years of chats back and forth via social media since I had moved to London, I had finally met his wife Hope and their precious son, Max. Never in my life had I seen a love so pure and honest. I got talking to Hope on her work with her non profit organisation, Foster Together. Their motto: CHILDREN NEED FAMILIES AND FAMILIES NEED SUPPORT

With the belief that every little bit helps, and every child matters, all websites created as of March 2019 through BARE Design will see 10% of the cost of the site directly donated to Foster Together, in memory of my friend and in testament to the incredible work by both Kyle and Hope Forti to change the lives of children in Colorado (and beyond).

On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living, that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend’s life also, in our own, to the world.
— Henry David Thoreau
