"Atlanta's TEDxYouthDay was one of more than 100 events taking place all over the world from Tokyo to Nairobi. This confirmed what we at BLAMtastic® already know. There are many thousands of youngsters out there with big ideas who are looking for guidance. As leaders in business and in our communities it is our responsibility to seek out these young people and support them in any way we can. Our goal in our keynote address was to light the fire within these bright children where there is already a spark. Our success story gives them cause to dream big for themselves and look past their fears. Empowerment is a beautiful thing. And, providing inspiration through the telling of our story is a privilege." Renee Sandler - Co-founder and President - BLAMtastic®, LLC
