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.

Last Stop of the Day

March 14th, 2018


Marjory Stoneman Douglas campus was my last stop of the day last Friday. I talked with students, teachers, parents, and residents of Parkland, Florida. Rick and Baptista stopped by on their bikes. Baptista said one of the hardest things was the wait to make sure his son was ok. It is my wish that I was able to offer a bit of comfort to those I spoke with.

One Week Away

March 13th, 2018


One week from today is the 7th annual Spring into Kindness Day!
This annual event takes place on the first day of spring. On this day, those who participate are asked to surprise someone with an act of kindness. You are asked to challenge yourself to do this act of kindness for someone you normally don’t associate with in your circle of friends. This event is guaranteed to create new friendships.

The visits to all 46 FCB locations to talk to the team members about kindness was a huge success. I really enjoyed myself meeting so many caring individuals. Thank you to everyone for rolling out the red carpet during our travels these past three weeks.


Kind Words into Action

March 11th, 2018


Jenny and her two daughters, Emma and Ella, were taking photos by the Kindness Bus, so I introduced myself and after talking with them, sent them on their way with their personalized copies of Bogart’s children’s books. Jenny loves talking to her two daughters about putting kind words into action.

My visit to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school last evening was a “very big help” talking with students, teachers, and parents.


Welcome Back Bob!

March 9th, 2018


What an incredible way to end an incredible day. It is always such a joy to visit great friends when I am in South Florida. Thank you to Mark, Rick & Danuta, and new-found friend Krish, who flew 24 hours from India yesterday. I certainly felt welcomed. Great eats, great stories, and great catching up since last year. Such beautiful loving kindness and generosity in the hearts of these individuals.

I paid a short but very powerful visit to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School campus yesterday afternoon. Many comforting conversations were much needed. I will be back for a longer visit again today.
