This project appeared as dimensionally enormous when it was envisioned in 2003 as it did in 2014 as it continues to be today projecting into our future. The difference is the reality of progress, although it sometimes feels more regressive than advancing.
The reality of this socially-minded business evolving to be the strong empowering engine that it seemed it was in 2003, is only possible with the support from GoBe Inc.'s fellowship partners for their friendship. These individuals or business professionals have dedicated their time, resources, created opportunities for us to explore, donated to our community fundraisers or invested capital into the growth potential we are seeing mature today.
We are profoundly grateful to the following fellows who empowered the GoBe Collective.
This unique spiritual friendship is attributed to divine synchronicity and vibrational affiliation between Go and Be and the individuals that were the earliest adopters of the company's co-creative, collaborative spirit.
These die-hard devoted fans believed in the spirit and purpose of GoBe and GoBe Greetings. Their collective breath ranged from resuscitate to energize depending on the various stages of development.

The Launch Party
GoBe Greetings officially held an art gallery style launch party for family and friends as a show of gratitude for their support over the years. It was the first opportunity for the public and the core team to see the tangible products and the conceptual potential of future greetings collections and product development. We are forever indebted to the supportive encouragement in allowing space for GoBe Greetings to co-exist in rhetoric for nearly ten years before this party.
The transition of re-engaging with the 2003 concept was daunting to channel its ideas into tangible products and programs, if not for the financial support of:
We launched our first Indiegogo campaign in spring 2015 called Jumpstart Our Mantra. The objectives of: publishing The Wonder Walls, designing and manufacturing our eco-clear coasters and printing the The Wonder Walls box-set greetings collection were all achieved because of the support from:
The Wall of Wonder ($500+)
The Full Wonder ($75-$250)
The Solo Wonder, Coaster Wonder &
Small Wonder ($10-$50)
The Wonder Walls: From the Streets of Toronto was inspired by a real-life encounter preventing a suicide jump from a railway overpass in Toronto with GoBe Greetings' praise cards. The book is a social collaboration in partnership with Sketch Toronto and features 44 cut-out postcards with positive outlooks. The following contributors offered their unique perspectives and inspirational stories of resilience and adversity in overcoming life's wall-like obstacles.
The ME Expo for My Empowerment (Windsor)
GoBe Events (GoBe Greetings Inc.) hosted an empowerment expo at The City Market in Windsor in 2016. The dynamic show offered a variety of thought-leaders discussing trends, demonstrations, creative workshops and vendors selling positive products. We're grateful for everyone's authentic voice that weekend as well as the volunteers who showed a devoted double-duty.
