Why Koala Pete?

Koalas are cute, cuddly, clever, wise, cautious and independent. They thrive in the wild. Though they appear to live alone, every one of them is actually part of a community. We believe that we as humans are much the same. Koalas are also on the endangered species list. So are those of us who choose to live by the values that America was founded on in the first place. Values such as honesty, integrity, and kindness.

Pete means rock. Peter was one of the Apostles, an evangelist who made plenty of mistakes but also became one of the most outspoken, spreading his message throughout the country. The name Pete connotes boldness, eventfulness and an exciting life. Petes tend to be versatile, wanting to do their own thing their own way and to be their own person–individuals. The Koala Pete brand appeals to just such a person–one who is passionate about life, about others, has a sense of adventure, and wants to make a difference in the world. Individuals who join this movement tend to be bold–often internally, but desirous of letting their values be known in their circles, their communities, and their world. Finally, Pete means rock. We encourage you to boldly proclaim your message through the simple act of writing (or painting) it on a rock and placing it somewhere for someone else to find and be encouraged by.

If this sounds like you, we invite you to join the adventure today!
