“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” ~Joel A. Barker
Besides our commitment to bringing the best pizza in Colorado Springs to our community, we have a huge mission and one that fuels everything we do here at Slice420. When our daughter was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy in 2013, we set off on a path to create a better life for her through alternative medicine. But we know that we aren’t alone – there are many other American medical refugees who have struggled to find the care and support they need to deal with their health concerns, and we want to provide support and assistance so that everyone can experience the benefits of the alternative medicine that have made such an impact in our own daughter’s life. When we share the best New York style pizza in Colorado Springs with you, we’re also sharing our mission, and we want everyone to know that there are others who have endured the same struggles and found solutions to enrich their quality of life. Every slice that we sell contributes to this mission and helps to make a difference in someone’s life.
Who our Mission Supports:
Slice420 is putting our money where our mouth is. When we say “mission,” we are on a mission for change, a mission for the reduction of stigma, a mission for medical freedoms, and a mission of HOPE… in short, our mission is backed by action. Since September 2017 we have donated thousands of dollars to further our mission.
