We often hear from our members that the friends they make on Care2 are near and dear to their hearts. That was certainly the case for long time members Sunil and Celeste, who met on Care2 in December 2005 and were married soon after.  I recently heard their story, and of course wanted to share it with you!

Celeste was looking for something to occupy her Celeste and Sunilmind and replenish her spirit after her grandfather passed away. She came across Care2 and really liked it for the humanitarian, environmental, and animal rights efforts. Celeste started a group and began making friends in the Care2 community. When Sunil joined her group, Celeste found that they had lots in common. They spent the next six months chatting about peace initiatives, Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, art, spirituality and yoga (and falling in love).  

After six months, Celeste flew to Mysore in South India to meet Sunil in person. They were married in August 2006 and spent their honeymoon learning yoga and breathing techniques at the Art of Living Ashram, Bangalore - which was "pretty amazing!"

“Care2 was a launching pad to inspire us to get more involved in volunteer work and become active participants in life, particularly involving peace initiatives. We loved being able to make friends all over the world and it is amazing to see how we are all connected!”  - Sunil & Celeste

You never know what might happen on the journey toward making the world a better place!  If you’ve met someone special on Care2, we’d love to hear about it. Please share your Care2 community experiences with me.  Thank you!
