It's 2016, and I'm taking on my biggest challenge yet as part of my 50th Birthday Celebration and a tribute to Dhana's 'We're Wearin' the World™' campaign. Over the next 10 months, I will be biking 1,000 miles as I travel throughout Northern California, France, India, Singapore and many other places. I will be sharing my stories, insights and experiences, as well as how we are connected to people and planet.

It's my commitment to the work I am doing as part of my company's mandate—Dhana Inc.—people using business as a force for good—helping to solve social and environmental challenges in the world we inhabit. As a Certified B Corporation, this is integral to the philosophy and mission of the triple bottom line (positive economic, social and environmental impact).

As we celebrate the global connections in our lives, and the hearts and hands behind products, I hope to also hear from you and your words of inspiration. Please visit my personal Climate Ride page to support my goal of 1,000 miles in a 10-month adventure around the globe. It means the world to me that you care.

Help me reach my fundraising goal to pay it forward and give back to the non-profit B Lab, the organization helping businesses just like Dhana to make a difference in the world by ensuring that workers are honored and respected; that the environment is being considered and with the least amount of exploitation and pollutants. We have a lot of work to do to raise awareness on climate change and sustainability, and I hope I can count on you for support along the way.

Thank you for your inspiration, compassion and generous contributions in making my 50th year on this planet a blessed celebration!
