Bodhi and Bodhi Jr.

Friends, Pete and Nance from Sausalito, California notified me that they would be retiring their kindness van, Bodhi.
The story has a magical ending. Please read:
This is the wonderful story of what happened
Pete put up the ad for Bodhi and had a woman from Seattle got in touch who wanted the van. She was not looking for a ‘Kindness Van’ but just a van. She watched our video and got inspired. Pete was on the phone with her concluding the deal when another woman showed up to look at Bodhi. Pete had already told her it was sold but she wanted to come anyway. She was just looking for a van to camp in. She fell in love with the van and really, really wanted it. Pete took her out driving in it and talked to her about the van . When she came back she was set on getting a van and turning it into a Kindness Van for her and her 2 kids. She called us the next day and asked if she could come by to show the kids the van. Turns out she had found and bought a van that morning. She took all kinds of pictures of the slogans on our van and is going to paint the van with her kids. They committed to doing one year of kindness acts!!!! She has already started a blog ( that day!!!) and delivered the books we gave her as a gift to her kid’s school. She named the van ‘Bodhi JR’ The women who bought the van in Seattle( who originally had no intention of using it as a kindness van) has already lined up friends for her first ‘cookie give-away’ in Seattle. So now, instead of the ‘demise’ of Bodhi, there is a baton being passed twice, with 2 vans that will be spreading the word. So Bob, from your bus to us, and out further it goes…. Pete has the contact info of the local women who is going to create her kindness van with her kids, but I will forward her first blog she sent us.
Love spreads beyond all recognition!!!
