An Inspiring Pair

When you’re single and happy, there are some couples that nevertheless manage to get you thinking about domestic bliss. For me, one of those inspiring duos is Morgan and Arthur.

An Inspiring Pair: Morgan and Arthur during their last visit to Africa

Morgan, one of my PR colleagues at Quinn & Co., met her husband of two years when she moved to Paris and became an au pair for his family. It was love at first sight. After a lengthy courtship, they married in a beautiful ceremony by the water in NY’s Westchester County that seemed like something out of a storybook.

One of the truly amazing things about Morgan and Arthur -- they’re as devoted to making a difference as they are to each other. This summer, they’re spending two weeks in Rwanda on a mission trip to help build houses, nurture children orphaned by the country’s 1994 genocide -- and to meet two children that they have sponsored for over a year.

Since 2004, Rwanda Building Blocks, the organization that Morgan and Arthur are working with, has built houses, sponsored more than 800 children and provided medical training for local inhabitants. Click here to learn more about the group’s great work and how you can be a part of it.
