Forge is a Rite Of Passage to a deeper, more refined version of the leader inside.

It’s an exclusive container for leaders at the top of their industry who push the limits and care deeply about giving back.

This April, Twelve heart-centered leaders will embark on a fully immersive, 8-day adventure in Nosara, Costa Rica.

The focus will be on three pillars: 1) Impact/Influence, 2) Health, and 3) Charity.

We will share best practices and sharpen the skills necessary to continue innovating, amplifying global impact, and maintaining health & wellness.

We will also be partaking in charity through 3 different initiatives. 1) Children, 2) Reversing deforestation, and 3) Recycling.

ORGANIZATION #1: DREAM CATCHERS

CAUSE: Supporting Underprivileged Children

Dream Catchers is a beacon of hope for underprivileged children in Nosara. These children face immense challenges. From severe poverty to violent home environments, there are limited opportunities for self-expression–often believing there is no way out. Dream Catchers' efforts allow them to dream big and build a brighter future.

With your support, we aim to sponsor children for an entire year, providing them access to essential resources and empowering them to become leaders of tomorrow without recreating the same generational patterns they grew up in. Your contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in the lives of these children.

OUR GOAL: To raise $8,500 to build a playground for over 250 kids, revitalize centers, increase attendance of social skills workshops, and foster a culture of optimism and resilience.

ORGANIZATION #2: COSTAS VERDES:

CAUSE: Supporting Costa Rica’s Coastal Forest with their Deforestation Devastation

Global rainforests play a crucial role in maintaining weather patterns and rainfall. They are home to approximately 50% of the world's plants and animals on land. They also absorb massive amounts of CO2, slowing global warming and preventing sedimentation from reaching dangerous levels.

The beauty of Costa Rica's coastal forests is unparalleled. With your help, we can reverse the damage created by deforestation, restoring ecosystems and creating safe, vibrant spaces for wildlife and their community to thrive.

Join us in contributing to Costas Verdes' mission of reaching 100,000 trees planted by the end of 2024.

By helping them grow their team and expand their four nurseries, we can ensure they continue to preserve these precious habitats and protect the diverse wildlife that call these forests home.

OUR GOAL: $3,000 to support their 4 Nurseries and help them hit their goal of planting 100,000 trees.


ORGANIZATION #3: Nosara Ricicles

CAUSE: Creating Sustainable Waste Management Solutions

A World Economic Forum study estimates that the oceans now hold 150 million tons of garbage. In the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica alone, more than 122,000 people live in municipalities that do not provide garbage collection, leading these families to either burn their trash, throw it into a river or a vacant lot, or take it to an open dump. In 2008, a group of local women decided to do something about the severe crisis happening in the area, realizing that if they didn’t, the trash could contaminate aquifers that supply fresh water to locals with heavy metals, nitrates, and biological contaminants.

This all-women organization is called Nosara Ricicles. They are leading the charge toward sustainable waste management.

By volunteering with them, we'll learn about their innovative initiatives and actively contribute to sorting waste and promoting recycling locally & globally.

Through the "Precious Plastics" initiative, we'll witness firsthand the transformation of recyclables into usable goods, reducing pollution and helping protect the environment for future generations.

Join us in being the change in Waste Management solutions!

OUR GOAL: $2,000 will go towards the machinery and team needed to run it, creating and transforming the plastic into tools and local art.
