August Pitt is a native Washingtonian and a volunteer for ARK365DMV since its inception.
Acting as ARK365DMV’s “Director of Administration” (loosely titled), I have helped with the web presence and marketing efforts, been an event helper, and a helping hand whenever I’m needed. I have been privileged to participate in the growth and wonderful giving that has been made possible by the organization. There’s never a better feeling than knowing you are doing some good in the world despite your own personal circumstances. ARK365DMV has afforded me that wonderful gift. I am looking forward to being able to continue the mission of spreading kindness and being a blessing to others.
My absolute favorite movie of all time is Claudine. Complimented by one of the baddest soundtracks I’ve ever heard, it is easily the hands-down favorite movie. The main character Claudine (played by the gorgeous Diahann Carroll) reminds me so much of my mom–a strong, single mother struggling to raise her kids when money was tight and times were hard… but she made it work.
I don’t think I’ve ever quite had a favorite quote, but “Yes we can” seems to be the first thing that popped in my head, so I’ll go with that. Corny? Possibly. …but it speaks to the spirit of never giving up and making things happen despite the odds being stacked against you. It’s one of the tenants that brought ARK365DMV to life and I think that’s pretty cool.
