Through storytelling, allegory, and dynamic rhetoric, Tracy motivates audiences to bring gratitude and service into focus. She champions the importance of character building and reminds each of us how during every moment of our lives, we can utilize the power of positivity and our unique perspectives, choices, and strengths to impact our community, country, and world.



  • Tracy is an absolute inspiration and an outside-the-box thinker who is modeling a purposeful life of immense service. Her unique adventure serving the "community of the world" is not just a motivational metaphor, it’s an authentic course for all of us to follow.
    Shawn Wehan
    Givsum and Future Leaders of Our Community
  • We learned that we are really 4tunate to have all this stuff and that lots of other people don't have a lot of stuff but they are still 4tunate. It was really fun and really interesting and my class liked it a lot!
    Keller (3rd grade student)
  • Tracy's 4tunate message and program are unique and valuable in helping our children see the importance and joy of giving back to their school, their community and their world. They learned that there are always blessings to be counted no matter your circumstances and that they are capable of making a difference in others lives.
    Amanda Wolf (Teacher)
  • I believe this fits in well with the county and community saying "character counts"...this is an excellent way to build character!
    Nancy P.
  • All schools should join! It will bring attention to all kids – big and small – what is happening with other parts of the world and show them how we all need to help.
    Parent of Participant
  • The children learned so much about how great and rewarding it is to help others in need and learned about what it is like to have experienced a traumatic experience in their lives. It was a humbling experience.
    Parent of Participant
  • We tend to forget how 4tunate we all are and I appreciate that this helps remind our children.
    Charlene Selina
  • 4tuante is very valuable. Its good to learn to volunteer your time and resources at a young age. It builds character and kindness.
