“Instead of finding your one big purpose in life or that one big thing that is going to be on your tombstone, just take the pressure off and follow it.” -Jodi Spangler

A Life with More Meaning

Jodi used to be a travelling adventure writer. But, she wanted something more meaningful. So, she went and looked for ways to live a more meaningful life.


Her decision led her to other countries including India and Haiti. She helped out in disaster relief operations and in fundraising. She always want to do something with anything that bugs her.

The Start of a Mission

One of the things she did (and still does) was funding students to nurse school. Through conversations with friends and colleagues, she found that a number of people wanted to become nurses or work in the healthcare industry.


Instead of sending relief, she decided to fund individuals who want to train and do the job. Together with her friends, she started funding 7 students. They are still pursuing it to this day.

Finding a Good Solution

The first thing they dealt with was the idea of sending students to a school in the US. Things became complicated to the point that Jodi almost gave up. But, she realized that there was a nursing school in Haiti.


So, she went and talked to the Director about it. She was so happy when she found that it only costs $360 a year to send someone to the nursing school. She found it very doable, and so started funding with her friends.
