Carolena Presto was raised to be a Humanitarian.
She tells us, "My parents taught me at a very young age to be kind to others; animals and to have compassion to those in need.”
Carolena insists, “No matter how small a gesture; an act of kindness can lift someone’s spirits and may even change their entire life for ever. Every day is a chance to offer up something positive to the earth.” Ending her comment with a sweet smile and sparkle in her eyes.
Pictured above with Guest Mary Richardson, Carolena is the host of the new television show series Contributions to Earth. It had a pilot season a few years ago on local community television and is coming back in full force by public demand!
Contributions to Earth honors and raises awareness of the positive efforts in both Environmental and Humanitarian fields. The series provides an in-depth look into organizations, individuals and companies contributing to the care of our planet and those who live on it.
Carolena says it has been a dream of hers to be a part of a production/workplace that delivered GOOD NEWS. A chance to share with the world all the kindness that is passed on to people in need on a daily basis; not to focus on all the negativity that may be out there. Informing viewers who the humanitarians are in their local community and across the country. People that are not caught up in the ego of themselves and share what they have done for others. She talks about the “SelfLESS” people, random strangers as well as larger public entities who every day are striving to make a positive difference in their communities, and in the world at large.
Carolena studied Musical Theater at the University of Mass/Boston. She is a SAG Actress (has worked in over 15 Major Motion Pictures and Indie films in the New England area). She is a former Aerobic Trainer - dedicating ten years to the physical fitness of others. She is an avid Animal Rescuer: For the last 20 years Carolena has participated in rescuing many homeless; abused cats, dogs, birds…and any animal that she comes across in need of help. An entrepreneur and Organizational Designer, Carolena developed S.O.U.L.: Simple, Organized, Uncluttered Living. This model she created shows clients how to live a more simple, “clutter free” lifestyle: re-organizing home and work spaces that are functional and clutter free.
In addition to her current work as Host of Contributions to Earth, Carolena is active in a number of non-profits as well as transformational projects, including Empowering Women! She was a special-guest-host on Empowering Women TV BOSTON in April 2013 for a live-studio-audience recording. Above she is pictured with Suzy Spivey, Christine Lucas, Chew-Hoong Koh and Suzanne Roth, all hosts of Empowering Women TV Boston.
Carolena was also recognized by the Empowering Women Movement for her work in philanthropy and efforts towards the empowerment of women. It was my pleasure, along with Event Producer Cynthia Ellis, to present Carolena with this recognition for her contributions.
