"Tara, has been a big part of our community here in Coppell Texas, and when she came to speak at our Chamber Monthly Luncheon, we were honored. I had heard about Taylor's Gift and knew of the story, but I had never heard it delivered first hand from Tara. Tara delivered a very impacting speech about how to "Outlive Yourself". It's about making a difference in the lives of others.
Christine Douglass, Chief Executive Officer, Coppell Chamber of Commerce
"Tara and Taylor's Gift epitomize the idea of turning an incredible tragedy into a positive for so many. I find that actions often speak louder than words, and besides the fact there was not a dry eye in the room, the line for ladies to purchase "Taylor's Gift" being out the door shows just how many were inspired by Tara. Thank you again for a wonderful presentation and evening!"

"Southwest Transplant Alliance had the opportunity to have Tara Storch, co-Founder of Taylor’s Gift Foundation, speak at our Life Champion Conference. Hearing her tragedy to triumph story is one that every human should hear. The “Outlive Yourself” message is thought-provoking, especially in a world full of so much negativity. Tara shared: “Pay attention to your pain points, passions, and to those around you.” These three calls to action will help us all ‘Outlive Ourselves.’ Thank you Tara for making such an impact on our organization, our hospital partners and the other entities we collaborate with! "

"The Delta Omega chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta had the privilege of hearing firsthand how Mrs. Storch found purpose and passion in the midst of heartbreaking tragedy. Today, that purpose and passion has impacted countless lives across the nation. As a chapter, Mrs. Storch’s story challenged us to consider how we, as college students, can outlive ourselves everyday and how we can positively impact the people around us. We were all moved and very inspired!"

Recently Tara spoke at The Women’s Alliance – International Women’s Conference and had a wonderful message for everyone. The Alliance also selected Taylor’s Gift as our focused charity for the silent auction. The words "Outlive Yourself" are so powerful. Overcoming adversity and finding inspiration to do more is a message that resonated with everyone attending. Tara’s presentation inspired and motivated all there to make a difference in the lives of others.

"The Dallas Society of Plastic Surgeons had the pleasure of hearing Tara's story of "Outliving Yourself." Her journey of finding inspiration through heartache is truly unbelievable-- a story of love, unimaginable loss, inward soul searching and ultimate triumph. She presented a thought-provoking discussion on how we can use our personal stories to make a difference in the world. You will laugh, you will cry, but most importantly you will walk away motivated to make positive changes in your own life. Thank you, Tara, for sharing your story with Dallas."
