Now that she had a name to research, Saundra Waldgrave did some online checking into Delmont Valentino and NUTRITION 4 SUCCESS. Caitlin’s observations proved accurate that Delmont was an entrepreneur – the charity was his business. Saundra wondered if Caitlin knew that.
As she read more about Delmont, she learned he’d been homeless on the streets when he was young. He and his mother eventually got off their feet, but it left Delmont with a determination to give back. Though he finished high school, Delmont couldn’t afford college. He’d focused on earning money on his own, and working on his pitch skills to bring together a group of young, forward thinking investors to start NUTRITION 4 SUCCESS.
“Making sure I had enough to eat gave me the ability to think clearer and not be distracted by hunger,” she read in one of Delmont’s interviews. “We help get people food, but also as part of that they must attend workshops on interviewing, ethical behavior on the job, and other skills that will set them up for success no matter what they do.”
With each word she read, Saundra Waldgrave wanted to meet with Delmont in person and learn more about him. However, she’d mbmmm made an agreement with Caitlin to only observe him from afar.
Clearly, Caitlin hadn’t researched his charity work enough to know that wouldn’t be possible.
Now she had to decide whether to follow her heart or betray the wishes of her friend.
