Sandy Montgomery, Co-Founder of Reliv, had a commitment and compassion toward Reliv and the Kalogris Foundation. The Sandy Montgomery Compassion Award, introduced and presented for the first time at the 2015 Reliv International Conference, was inspired by Sandy Montgomery’s favorite flower, the bird of paradise.
“I wanted to come up with something in the Foundation that would honor her forever for all the support she has provided,” said RKF Chairman Scott Montgomery. “The bird of paradise symbolizes so much that she is and represents: strength (the long stalk), rare beauty (exotic appearance), joyfulness (vibrant colors) and more. The bird of paradise, like my mom, is one of a kind — giving flight to dreams, freedom and happiness.”
This award recognizes selfless compassion for others, demonstrated daily by dedicated representatives of the RKF who operate feeding centers throughout the Reliv world.
