An 8 year ride for kids

Put an end to Bullying & Adolescent Suicide

In year 3 of this mission, I introduced a bicycle ride to my travels to raise
awareness about issues kids are having to deal with at far too young an age.
Bullying and Adolescent Suicide are two of these challenging burdens most kids
will unfairly have to overcome throughout the remainder of their lives. At rides
end we will have ridden enough miles to traveled the perimeter of the earth, twice.
My mission on this ride has but one focus: To save kids lives.

One of my favorite Thanksgiving prayers it’s by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends

Seal of Approval

November 16th, 2016


Thank you to Barb a former teacher from Seagate Elementary School in Collier County, Florida for flagging me down so I could meet her dog Jesse.
Barb has fond memories of our school programs and wished that Bogart had been with me to meet Jesse.
I love it when our school programs get the seal of approval from a teacher, counselor or principal.

Three Cheers for Morgan

November 15th, 2016
One of our biggest fans, Morgan Tocco broke her hip two weeks ago. She and her mother Susanna and friend Zoe were having lunch when they spotted the Kindness Bus. We turned around and offered Morgan some comfort and presented her with a copy of Bogart’s new book: “It’s Always a Good Time to Make a New Friend”
Heal quickly Morgan!!!
