Our Mascot

Meet Bud

We’d like you to meet Redbud, or “Bud” for short.

Bud is an American Bison and the mascot for The Kimmell Foundation for Recovering Leadership. You may be asking, “Why a bison?”

Bison need three things to be content and stay where they are: Food and Water (basic needs stuff), Safety, and Community (they don’t do well alone). Turns out we are a lot like bison that way. We need to have our basic needs met, feel safe in our environment, and we need community. That is why The Kimmell Foundation is building a “herd” of leaders who can help one another create communities where the people we lead are valued and cared for. The herd is a place of safety and community for you.
