Alan Freedman and his wife, Fran – his best friend and life partner of 33 years and counting – have six children, three grandchildren and one on the way as of this writing! They also have a household of seven four-legged furry children.
Alan moved to the United States from Toronto, Canada 16 years ago. He is a man with an enormous heart and a human being whose enthusiasm for giving shows in a myriad of venues and ways. His passions are many:
Seeing legislation enacted to ensure dignity and preservation for all of GOD’s animal creations. Alan and Fran co-founded a no-kill animal sanctuary 11 years ago. True, effective changes providing equality and meaningful resources for the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered (GLBT) community on a global basis. He has a zeal for a specialized focus on the aging GLBT community and the at-risk GLBT youth “on the street.”
Honest protection of all natural legacy treasures, to include a sound sustainable policy toward our environment to reverse the erosion that has already begun. Capitalism with a heart that provides equal opportunity for everyone to become the highest and best that they can be. A world view of abundance, where there are no losers, versus one of scarcity, where competition and greed predominates.
Creating written works (like the one in your hands, for instance) that are designed to challenge the reader to embrace and experience dramatic positive life-change, oftentimes by questioning the status quo and what they have held to be true as to a number of high-profile and impassioned issues. A system to impact the world for good, with his vast experience from advising his financial and estate planning clients. Alan’s clients are always also his friends.
Reading great literary works that continually motivate him to challenge what he thinks he already knows. Camping with Fran and their dogs (2 at a time mind you) in their motor home in breathtaking Durango, Colorado. Taking his dogs for a casual walk, where he can simply talk and commune with the GOD within. Preparing delicious gourmet meals for Fran and their family and friends. Last but not least, his beautiful grandchildren.
Alan and Fran live in Cornville, Arizona.

I truly hope that you’ll walk with me as together, we arouse the courage within to challenge ourselves to question what we think we already know and to invite others to join us. Together, we can change the world.
