Be the Cause

14 year old Chaz

Jay and I are extremely lucky; as the receiving end of our email inboxes are always filled with inspiring messages from all over  the world, like this one from 14 year old Chaz.  Thank you for sharing this with us, Chaz!  Keep on doing what you’re doing

Hi, my name is Chaz…I’m 14 years old and I wrote and recorded a song called (R)evolve. I really believe that this song and its video could help change the world, and I feel it is a common goal between us. I would really love it if you checked it out, because your cause fits with the message of what we are trying to get out there. So, here’s a link to my YouTube video…

I hope you like it. :)  Please feel free to let me know your thoughts and or share with others if you like it.
Thanks a bunch–Chaz

Six months from now…

Six months ago you volunteered at the 2008 Walk for Hope and helped make the event a HUGE success! Because of you, last year was our largest walk to date, with about a thousand walkers raising close to $15,000 for various non-profit organizations.
Thank you. It couldn’t have happened without you.

…and now we have a date for WFH 2009!
This year’s Walk will take place on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17–six months from now. If at any time during these next six months you hear, see, or experience something inspiring, please hold onto that thought! Then, when you have chance, take a moment to share that idea with us so that we can attempt to bring that inspiration to the 2009 Walk for Hope.

How can we make the event more innovative and interactive? Past activity stations have included the Tree of Forgiveness, Random Act of Kindness Garden, and Letter to Yourself. Share your ideas here.

Website Development

Location: Virtual
Time Commitment: 2-10 hours per week
We’re looking for a volunteer who can give our current Walk for Hope website ( a complete overhaul. We have an idea of the changes we’d like to make, but lack the technological know-how.
Keep the inspiration flowing, and we’ll see you in six months!
