The Morning Newsletter Calgarians Trust

Desert Tiptoes Inc. is a company that set forth to boldly go where no other company has gone before, and to get as many individuals to walk barefoot across the Sahara desert, leaving beautiful and temporary foot marks behind. When we started, we had no clear vision as to why we wanted to get people to do that. Today, 20 years later, we are still kinda confused.
