SPONSOR SPEAK- CARLO PIETRACUPA, PURE BODY BEVERAGES
According to Carlo:
How did you come to be involved with Jacob’s Ladder?
We were introduced to Jacob’s Ladder by Lisa Borden from Borden Communications. Being such a great cause made it an easy decision (in fact it is an honour).
What does your affiliation with Jacob’s Ladder and (Jake’s Gigantic Give specifically) bring to you?
Supporting good causes is part of our corporate DNA. On a more personal level I feel that if you’re not giving back to your community you’re missing out on the big picture of life.
What does giving mean to you?
Giving is an acknowledgment that not all things are equal and that if one is to have, one must also be willing to share. In essence giving from the heart is love.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Perfect happiness is a state of mind. One is happy when one has peace of mind and contentment within.
Which living person do you most admire?
Every living soul is a work in progress. I admire people who see the glass is half-full and make the most out of the situation they are in.
Who are your heroes in real life?
Single parents! Being happily married, as a couple, we find it very challenging to deal with our healthy 6 year old. I just can imagine how a single parent does it.
What is your dream job (other than the one that you have now)?
Anthony Bourdain’s job, traveling the world tasting all the different foods and sucking up the local culture.
What is the natural talent you would like to be gifted with?
I would love to be able to play a musical instrument and communicate with people at an emotional non-verbal level.
