Imagine having the opportunity to visit over 71 countries in the span of 5 years.  Now imagine visiting all those countries and not spending a single PENNY towards your transport.  Well that's exactly what Frenchman Jeremy Marie did when he relied on the kindness and generosity of strangers for more then 5 years.

Jeremy had a goal to hitchhike around the world!  From deserts in Sudan all the way to freezing temperatures in Kazakhstan...from rides on donkeys, cars, boats and planes, Jeremy traveled over 1000,000 miles around the world.  You have to check out some of the amazing photos he shared from his journey....

This past Mothers Day like always was a special day to recognize and thank our mothers for all they have done for us. 

Kelly Sia, daughter to Mindy Lam took this day to celebrate giving life to her mother who gave life to her.  19-year-old Kelly donated a kidney to her mother Mindy who three years ago was diagnosed with hypertensive nephropathy, which almost took her life.  When the family found out of their mom's condition, Kelly was only 16 and the minimum age to be a living donor is 18. 

Mindy went through many treatments over the last couple years, and when Kelly finally turned 18, she never hesitated to give her mother a kidney.  On this past Valentine's Day, the two women went into successful surgery, and now have matching scars which they consider to be a badge of honor. Kelly says "Its more precious than a tattoo and symbolizes the rebirth of my mom". 

What an amazing gift, and an amazing story.  Good luck to you both.

 

Have a great day, and let the Good News be Yours!

Dorian Joyner Jr. was set to graduate from Morehouse College in Georgia on May 19th.  What made this day even more special was that he would be walking next to his father Dorian Joyner Sr. who was also set to graduate from Morehouse College.  in 1988 Dorian Sr was a student at Morehouse College when he took a career in computers instead of finishing his degree.  He worked at law firms, and other major corporations for the next 20 or so years.  His interest in law brought him back to Morehouse to finish his degree.  When on campus, both father and son would support each other, who often shared the same teachers but were never in the same class. 
 

"I'm definitely proud of him," Joyner Jr. said. "I'm proud of him as a man to go back and fulfill a degree. A lot of people his age have a family, have a career and really don't have the time or finance to go back to school. The fact that he took the opportunity to find financing and time to go back to school while maintaining a social life and a family is very astounding. That's hard to do."

Congratulations to the Joyner family, and we wish the luck on their respective career paths.

 

Have a great day and let the good news be yours,
