Back on the Road Again!

Back on the Road Again!

We are back on the move! After having our short break, we are now out of L.A. and heading up towards San Francisco. We all enjoyed our mini-holidays but Stanley is now all clean and tidy, and having filmed a couple of stories in L.A., we’re all excited to be back on the road. 

It’s been very warm here in California and I think we’re all looking forward to the time when we have to wrap up tightly in layers of duvets and blankets. Well, I know that I’ll be saying that it’s too cold then, as much as I’ve been saying that it’s too hot...

As usual, we’re going to have a lot of work to do in the next few months - not only do we have to continue with our fundraising, we have to make sure that we’re doing our best to get the stories out to as many people as we can. 

We know there are people out there who will truly appreciate, if not all, then at least one or two of our stories and we want to make sure we reach them. As we’ve often said, the point of the project is not just to provide us with an excuse to travel around the country. 

We all really do feel most strongly that people should be aware of the amazing work that’s going on around the country to help others. Especially in a time when the economy seems to be going nowhere and very little good news permeates the onslaught of negativity in media everywhere, we want to encourage people to do more. 

People of our generation have the chance to make a difference and have the ability to harness technology and social media to effect change, and we want to show that. 

I realize that all of this often sounds very wishy-washy and perhaps a little hippy-ish but we’ve all known people in our lives who have supported us and helped us achieve our goals in one way or another. The people we feature are just a small a number of those who are helping inspire those around them and we want to help spread their optimism and innovation.

So if ever you’re wondering what you can do to help us, it’s as easy as telling someone about our videos, or sending them an email with a link to one that they might particularly like. You never know, it might bring a smile to their face.
