Our Founder and CEO, Anne Lee, was watching television one night when she came across a program entitled “The Amazing Ant.” Anne was fascinated by some of the things she learned. Firstly, ants only walk forward, never backwards; on top of that ants are constantly communicating with each other through pheromones. Even more incredible is the fact that ants will only ever carry one grain of dirt at a time, but if left to work ants can actually change an entire landscape.
Anne realized that if we as citizens modeled ourselves after The Amazing Ant that we could make a huge difference one child at a time. At this she contacted Jeffrey Kennedy, a local artist whose work focused on ant sculptures, and our office has been rife with ants ever since.
