25 In Change - A look at the first journey

This video is a quick snapshot of our journey as a team over the last 25 days, and of those on the other side of the world that we are fighting to see a change for. Listen to the lyrics of this song and watch the video and allow it to create empathy that drives you to take action. This is solvable, it only takes unity.

Blentec Meets Rice and Beans

Blendtec is not only the best blender on the market for making green drinks and smoothies, it apparently does a real nice job with rice and beans too.  To my luck, Dave had one and with a little persuasion of my guys group I was lucky enough to get my very own rice and beans smoothy.  Best part - 100 kids were fed by me drinking that bad boy because of the work we are doing through 25 in Change.

Psychological Empathy - First Weekend of 25 in Change

Its day 6 and my famous red cup and water bottle have become my loathed best friends. I love them because they keep me going, and loath them because they are the last thing in the world I want.  I'm only a week in and it's been extremely interesting to not only self evaluate my physical being but my psychological being.Read more


The First 4 Days of 25 in Change

Its amazing how quickly your perspective on food, life, and joy change by taking just one variable out of your life equation.  The old adage that you never fully recognize somethings importance in your life couldn't hold more true than in this situation.  Literally for me almost everything  I do revolves around food and/or drink.  I would sadly say that I also find it as a joy enhancer to a lot of activities I do socially.  Taking that out of the equation has caused me to truly find the real meaning of joy in situations as well as shown a clear path of what false joy looks like too.

After being a little sleep deprived and not fully there I thought it would be a good idea to document my first day to look back on, I am no actor and maybe a little monotone, but in any case here is where I was after night one:

24 Hours Away from Launching 25inChange

I was asked to be part of a movement to help end world hunger and obesity.  At first it's easy to nudge of thinking "what can I do" but after some research and deep convictions I decided that I do want to be part of changing the leading cause of all death on the planet.  Obesity and Hunger kill more people annually than Natural Disasters, War, AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined.  Thats astonishing... 25 in Change is about changing that and with the support of Megan I accepted the request to be part of the first team kicking it off.Read more
