MORE GOOD Road Trip

$28,665 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 341 people in 36 months
In a world overrun with negative news, it's easy to forget that there is more good out there. And I'm setting out to prove it.

This fall, I'm fueling up my mother's old Subaru for a road trip. I'm going to be traveling to every one of the fifty states, collecting stories that show every day across America the good that lies within all of us is taking action. A reminder that there is more good than bad.

I'm going to document the entire experience through daily stories, photographs and videos on my website:
MOREGOOD.TODAY

When I return I'm going to send the stories back out across the country in the form of a book I plan to donate to hospital waiting rooms . 

Watch the video to see why...

Thank you in advance for any monetary support you can provide for this project. Your money will be going towards gas, food, and book production. I am extremely grateful for your generosity and support of this project, it means the world to me.

We are buckling our seatbelts on OCTOBER 29th!

This is amazing, I'm trying to do the exact same thing. The words you use are exactly the feelings that I have... I absolutely can't believe the video you made. It truly is amazing to me. I couldn't stop crying. You completely read my mind. I'm not sure what I can do to help, I will be out traveling also... spreading the love and documenting the whole thing. And if the Lord allows it, and if you are ok with it. I'm going to donate the stories to hospital waiting rooms. I think that is a fantastic idea. My father has been paralyzed my whole life I know exactly what it's like to have to wait in the hospital.

Dear Mary, I just loved your Ted talk! You are so much like your Mom! She would be so proud. She had a radiant smile and laugh. Try to be as happy as she was. You deserve it. Keep up the “good” work. Xo Maureen

A personal friend makes these beautiful crochet caps for breast cancer patients, but will not let the pay for them...not even for the cost of the materials, which I imagine can be costly. Just wanted to give her a shout out for her incredible generosity. https://www.facebook.com/lwarteman/media_set?set=a.10208171673112144.1073742105.1310921071&type=3

I have probably sat in the same waiting rooms that you did in Sloan. I lost my Mom to lung cancer in 2016. I love your story and mission. If you revisit MA there's a room and homemade food waiting for you!

In this time of continual challenges, it's great what Mary is doing by reminding all of us to find the positive and make a conscious choice to focus on that instead.
