If you look up the definition of teamwork you will find a number of variations.
“Cooperative effort by the members of a group or team to achieve a common goal.”
Sweet Charity Medical Assistance Dogs is most certainly the cooperative effort of a group of people who have an inherent desire to help people. This group has come together with an incredible depth of experience, talent and wisdom. Each member brings their passion and their knowledge to the table. More importantly they bring etched in their minds the faces of the children.
My name is Lori Johnson and I am one member of this incredible team. My personal story with diabetes over the last 30 years started a journey. Welcome to the Sweet Charity team and share in our journey of discovery and incredible reward by reading the blog posts on the web site. Check out Sweet Charity’s Facebook page as well.
A passion to create change was ignited in 2010, with the meeting of an amazing woman, doing incredible work, in the United Kingdom. Dr. Claire Guest and her team at Medical Detection Dogs were not only doing incredible work, they were willing to share what they knew.
“Cooperative effort by the members of a group or team to achieve a common goal.” Claire and her team had a common goal: helping as many people as possible by sharing their important work.
Sweet Charity’s team has made it possible for this important work to impact those who need it most.
A cooperative effort and the passion to help others have brought Sweet Charity to life.
Friends for Life is our tag line to describe the relationships we build through the work we do at Sweet Charity. The members of the leadership team have become Friends for Life. We will continue to embrace the skills, experience and offers of support, so that Sweet Charity can grow and flourish.
We are a family that is growing in numbers, with a common goal to help people.
There are no words to describe the gratitude that I feel for the support of this team and the sacrifices they have made to launch Sweet Charity, and the impact we have on families living with diabetes. This impact is reflected in the faces of the children and the relationships they have with their special dogs.
Stay tuned to meet each and every one of these special people in the blogs to come.
