In 1993 Christina had a dream that she was to go to Calcutta and film Mother Teresa’s message to the world. Against all odds, she succeeded and Saint Teresa’s award winning “Revolution of Love” message garnered over 20 million dollars worth of free airtime and aired all over the world.
To honor Mother Teresa, the greatest love activist in the world, as she becomes Saint Teresa on September 4th, Christina is launching the call to love.

After reading my bio, people often say, ‘Wow! Look at everything you have done.’ It embarrasses me. Because I don’t feel I have done anything worthy in the world. I don’t feel as if I have left the world a better place for my presence here.
So I began with small things. If an idea came to me, or if I saw an injustice that I could perhaps do something about, I would. For example, I am on the board of The Captain Planet Foundation and every year we have a Fundraising Gala at the Georgia Aquarium. The press show up and click away. Wanting to highlight the fact that every 45 seconds a child in Africa dies from Malaria, I had this dress made for the Gala. Designed with the brilliant Caroline, of Mae Couture, it was fashioned from mosquito netting with Beechwood lining and a peace sign on the back of linked repurposed glass from salad dressing bottles. On the step and repeat, I carried a sign that said: www.nothingbutnets.net Buy a $10 net and save a child’s life. I doubt it saved a life, but perhaps it highlighted something. By the way, this photograph was taken on Ted Turner’s St. Phillip Island, that as you can see was falling victim to rising sea levels. Sadly, in October 2016, it was deemed unlivable due to a late summer hurricane.
I believe every day there is an opportunity to help someone ~ even a stranger, on the other side of the world. Or help out nature in some way. I know I have a life filled with blessings and I know I must share those. I don’t think it will ever be enough.
