Christina has always been dedicated to taking an active part in her global community, empowering other women and young women in meaningful ways. While serving different missions, both the Blue Button Foundation and Twice New were founded on the simple principle that everyone has the power to improve the lives of others.
Blue Button Foundation
Christina founded the Blue Button Foundation as a means for providing direct access to education for girls who can’t afford it. While taking a brief sabbatical in 2016, Christina went to Ghana on a solar powered educational project for her brother’s company Aleutia Computers. While there she connected with a number of educators, mothers and young women, conversations that eventually led to the formation of the Blue Button Foundation. A registered 501(c)3 non-profit, Blue Button operates with a lean overhead, a razor-sharp focus, and an abiding belief in the ability of the human heart to make a difference in the lives of others. Access to education is a complex issue, but the backpack scholarship program is a simple way to provide opportunities for girls who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford the basic necessities to attend school.
