Thanks for tuning in to Episode 6 of the Untamed Podcast with guest, Lolly Galvin.
Lolly Galvin is the founder of Dignity Project & #phillystreetcuts. In 2016, she took to the road and completed #thedignitytour. This was a crowd funded adventure where she lived in a van for one month while stopping in 14 US cities to provide conversation and essentials to homeless individuals. Back in Philadelphia, she’s continued to share the stories of the people she meets along the way. Lolly is a believer in creating humanity where you wish to see it through simple acts. She’s a humanitarian, a free thinker and an absolutely inspiring woman.
