 Mary-Margaret Weatherford Charity Spokesperson/ Writer  Mary-Margaret Weatherford loves to ask questions--about everything. She is an adventurer, explorer, and she would live outside if it were feasible.  A graduate of Middle Tennessee State University’s journalism department, she also holds certificates in Plant-Based Nutrition and Permaculture Design. In 2016, Mary-Margaret embarked on a project she named $4.23/day.  During which, she volunteered at homeless shelters, food banks and other non-profits across the country while personally simulating homelessness.  Through this, she became captivated by the nonprofit sector and overcome with the realization that we all have a duty to help one another.  She desires for everyone to feel a sense of community, to be cared for and to lead a purpose-driven life.

With a love for locally sourced, raw music, Riley is constantly listening to local talent while hunched over his computer in a coffee shop or rock climbing at a local gym.
