Tasha’s life-sized interactive butterfly installations can be seen all over the world and have been photographed in New York, Chicago, Boston, Phoenix, Nashville, Minnesota, and Washington DC, as well as in Europe and Mexico. Butterfly Effect is responsible for worldwide Butterfly Drops, in which Tasha or another Butterfly Effect participant “drops” and hides a wooden, die-cut and decorated butterfly at a public location. The finder then names a charity of his or her choice to receive a contribution. In 2016 the American Cancer Society partnered with Butterfly Effect to drop 5,000 decorated butterflies as part of its Relay for Life events. The butterflies then became part of a large scale installation at the Mall of America celebrating the stories of cancer survivors and their caregivers.
Tasha has been married for 23 years and has five wonderful boys. She lives in San Diego with her family.

The Butterfly Effect Keynote
What breaks your heart? What lights you up?
Each of us has a unique offering for the world, whether it’s for our community, our home, our work, or anywhere else. Have you ever wanted to spark change, but felt like you didn’t know where to start? In her 30-minute keynote, artist and entrepreneur Tasha Wahl shares her formula for creating her micro-philanthropy movement, The Butterfly Effect. She addresses the importance of gifting 10%, she helps audiences identify causes dear to them, and she shows them how to maximize the impacts of even the smallest acts of generosity and kindness. Formulated on Edward Lorenz’s concept that even a simple flutter of a butterfly’s wing can create ripples of profound change, The Butterfly Effect uses art, compassion and social media to change lives, communities, and the world. Following the keynote, Tasha co-creates a full-scale, human-size Wahl2Wall butterfly with your audience. Tasha’s butterflies can be found around the world hanging in corporate offices, hospitals, hotels, and community centers, where they inspire onlookers and help raise money for charity.
