MCK is a great listener who asks good questions.
This year he's joined forces with Doug to host a table at Chi Fan for Charity at Gung Ho! Pizza for a few reasons:
1) He believes in the mission that Andrew and Sam are working towards with Education in Sight. It aligns with his work to help people to see their world more clearly.
2) He believes in the way that Gung Ho! does business. Did you know they are one of the first registered B-Corps in China?
3) He loves creating space for people to connect in meaningful ways.
4) He loves pizza.
