What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

LT Dr. Claire Elizabeth VanLandingham was a promising young Navy dentist when her life was tragically cut short. On January 3, 2018, she was murdered by an ex-boyfriend. She was a bright light and had big plans to make the world a more fair, compassionate, and loving place for all people. #BeMoreLikeClaire is a way for those of us who loved her - and those who never had the pleasure of meeting her - to pool our efforts to continue in some small way the work that she most certainly would have done. #BeMoreLikeClaire’s mission is to carry on Claire's legacy by cultivating the power of collective generosity so that all may live a safe and healthy life. In our world today, many people do not have access to healthy food, health care, or safe and affordable housing. Many people do not have positive role models or experience with healthy relationships. Climate change threatens to destroy our planet and our ability to thrive on Earth.
