A time for change

With all the economic down turn going on, we of course want to be hopeful as always.

It's a cycle, a season, a time for change and a way to re-think how we consume and live on this planet.

They estimate that 1 billion people are hungry right now. 1/6th of the world population.

Imagine the Super Bowl stadium times 10,000 of those stadiums filled with 60,000 people each...that's how many hungry people there are worldwide.

Let's make it happen together, now!

How to feed 35,000,000 hungry people

As the economy has worsened, so too has the epidemic of hunger across one of the most prosperous countries in the world - the USA.

This article from indicates that about 30% of households headed by single mothers went without food at least occasionally over the course of 2007!

Let's put our heads together here folks and come with a diversified plan that connects needy people to farmers and producers with extra crops, regional and local distributors with some to spare, as well as large restaurant and catering operations that don't need to waste a single item any longer.

We can find a way now that cures hunger in our country once and for all. If not for ourselves, then for our children.

Have any ideas? Join the conversation here!

Back from Belize and Costa Maya on Jam Cruise

You've probably wondered where we've been the past couple of weeks, and why you haven't seen any new blog posts or YouTube videos posted...

Well we just returned from filming an absolutely incredible green cruise from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida all the way to Belize and Costa Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula on Jam Cruise!

Jam Cruise is indescribable. Imagine 3,000 of the coolest, sweetest, nicest people you could ever want to meet and hang out with all coming together for a 6 day voyage that's based around fantastic Jam band music!

The folks at Cloud Nine Adventures have already successfully staged seven of these massive concert cruises thus far, that not only satisfy every passengers dream journey to paradise found, but that also fosters the most green and sustainable activities of any cruise, or concert for that matter ever witnessed.

Jam Cruise does so much more, contributing to every community they visit by participating in their "Positive Legacy" program - donating necessary goods and money to needy people and organizations wherever the ship arrives to.

We'll have a lot more to come about Jam Cruise, including 3 awesome episodes we filmed on board the MSC Orchestra and on shore in Belize and Costa Maya!

Stay tuned!
