Being the change in the world we want to see.

We believe our purpose on Planet Earth is to serve others by being a loving, passionate, and powerful example of how to live productive, meaningful, and positive lives. We believe peace can be secured by empowering people to develop and control their own futures.

We put our boots on the ground and have a direct, real, tangible impact on people’s lives. We don’t sit in cubicles, theorize, pontificate, or politicize things. There’s plenty of people out there who talk a good game, but never actually get off the couch and do anything. As Mahatam Ghandi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
