Laura Formentini is a San Francisco-based author, nonprofit photographer, and activist who has worked with countless NGOs from around the world and with seemingly ordinary people who have accomplished the extraordinary.
In the summer of 2019, Laura’s life hit a turning point when her son died by suicide. She now shares her story on how a random act of kindness from a complete stranger has helped her to heal and how she is paying the stranger’s kindness forward with her book.
