Rolling Out the Red Carpet in St. Helena

April 22nd, 2013

4-22-13If I had to sum up my visit to St. Helena in one word, the word would be, Wow!!
Within one minute of putting The Kindness Bicycle on the ground, youth pastors, Richard, Vince and Dylan, pictured in today’s photo, came by for a long conversation. These three young men are doing great work with kids in this area and Modesto. Thank you guys.
Next up, Tom Amato, Executive Director of the Napa Valley Youth Advocacy Center came by after his wife Karen spotted The Kindness Bus on Main Street. He and Jason, Pacific Union College Youth Minister were filled with praise for the One Million Acts Of Kindness mission and how important it is for all of us to put our “words into action.” Tom spent the next four hours with me, introducing me to the “movers and shakers” of this region. He has dedicated his life to his passion: helping kids reach their God-given potential. It was amazing to watch the sincere interaction he has for making everyone whose lives he touches, part of his family.
This was an incredible day, with dozens of powerful conversations.
Thank you to Tyler for the heartfelt conversation and the donation to keep The Kindness Bus limping along.
A big thank you to Christina and Charley for the hospitality of opening their family estate for an overnight visit of The Kindness Bus Tour.
