Me and my friends joined together on May 5, 2020 for #GivingTuesdayNow to launch a month of new releases & a month of continued giving.
In this first event, we enjoyed some delightful cocktails, added in a dash of culture, all in an effort to raise money to support the projects launched by GoodBeautifulTrue, as well as several nonprofits we partner with in our teaching, our ministry, and our local communities. We raised over $200 towards our Good Project to help Rome's refugees & migrants. This first amount raised will go directly to support 3 refugees in Rome who have not been able to access any food, monetary, or rent emergency relief for over two months. They are in desperate situations, and this money will help them to buy groceries for the month of May. Thank you for your generosity !!
We hope you will continue to join my friends...

Check Out of Program of Videos for Moved By The Spirit:
Moved By The Spirit on YouTube Now
Launched on #GivingTuesdayNow2020, each video is a friend making us a fun cocktail. Jill will then have the amount of time to try and explain some amazing work of sacred art. It's an impossible mission, but that is the idea: have a drink and have a laugh, and maybe just maybe, learn a little something. All in an effort to raise money for great causes! New videos are being released every Tuesday. Check out the YouTube video for all the fun, and make your own happy hour / aperitivo / aperitif marathon out of it !

And that is not all. For the month of May, all sorts of new exciting content, which has produced since the outbreak of the coronavirus and the global shutdown of travel, university teaching, conferences & events, etc. will be released. These projects are a direct result of the 'Beautiful' Accelerator of the GoodBeautifulTrue hub. And these releases will continue fundraising for Our Beautiful Program . We are so thrilled to share this program with you and benefit from your patronage & generosity!
Coming in May: a new video series 'So that One Time..."
The first in a series of videos wherein I share stories of the craziest things that have happened to me inside the Vatican, in a life of world-wide travel, and more. With your continued support, we hope this can become a weekly series for our friends.
Coming in May: the premiere of "See the Sacred: See With your Eyes. See With Your Heart. See With Your Soul."
A video that will introduce the culture, the beauty, and the philosophy & theology of the Sistine Chapel in under 10 minutes. The culmination of almost a decade of reflection on the Sistine Chapel, and of several private after-hours visits with patrons, diplomats, and personal guests, I am excited to share this with you all ! With your continued support, we hope to turn this into a series.
Coming in May & June: Live-streams with Ines San Martin, of Crux , where we enjoy a nice drink and discuss what it is *really* like behind the scenes at the Vatican !
