2. Voula McLaughlin: Philanthropist, founder of her own charitable foundation supporting children in Greece. A love for basketball, and the culture. A passion for being Greek living in the diaspora.
In this episode I’m joined by Voula McLaughlin. Voula is a Greek-Canadian philanthropist, founder of the Reaching For The Stars Children’s Foundation. Join us as we discuss what inspires her, what inspired her to leave her day job in marketing to pursue a life calling, and more! Her foundation supports children in need all over Greece.
We also chat about other interests, such as basketball, the NBA, and the amazing journey Voula’s home team had in 2019 as the Toronto Raptors became NBA Champions for the first time in franchise history.
We discuss our origins in Greece, and our love for the culture and what makes Greece so special for the Greeks in the diaspora that yearn for it. Especially in a year like this, where an estimated 80-90% of the diaspora that usually visit on an annual basis, will not be.
Voula is a very inspiring person, join us in this extremely organic, and fun, conversation!
