Forever hopeful

Executive Mascot

Our dream has always been to help those of us restrained by something outside of our control. In your case, that might be your budget; in Katsumoto’s case, it’s the bowl. That’s why we made him our mascot. Also, he’s orange.

We're also a program of the Centre for Social Innovation. Meet our CSI team here!
