#18 Be Nice The End: Raising Kids with Special Needs

February 6, 2019

Carissa Tozzi and Gena Mann are longtime friends and the lifestyle savvy women behind Wolf + Friends, an app for moms raising children with special needs. Before motherhood, Carissa had a thriving career in celebrity casting and PR. She worked with media brands like Refinery29, Seventeen and Cosmo Girl. Her life changed when she was told that her son Wolf, who's neurotypical had some sensory issues and needed extra support in the classroom. Carissa wanted her son to live the best life he possibly could, but thought existing materials and resources were not inspiring. She then teamed up with her friend Gena, whose two sons were diagnosed with autism. Together, these warrior moms created an uplifting and judgment free platform where moms raising kids with special needs can connect and find the support they deserve.

#17 Lines of Difference

January 23, 2019

Identities and labels can put us in boxes that we can’t break away from. And in the world we live in, people might not be so willing to peel back the layers they see, to dig deep, to ask uncomfortable questions. But then there are people like Michael McKee, a doting son and soldier for the unseen who now works as the Associate Director of Strategic Partnerships at GLAAD, an organization that works across entertainment, news and digital media to accelerate acceptance for the LGBTQ community. While he once felt dehumanized, Michael never gave up in finding common ground between diverse groups and building bridges that connected resources to communities in need.

#16 2018 Year End Special (Part 2)

December 21, 2018

Episode Correction: One of our featured humans, Ashaba Faridah, grew up in the outskirts of Kampala in Uganda, East Africa.

We wanted to close out the year by sharing two inspiring stories on owning your purpose and overcoming what scares you. On our last podcast for 2018, you'll hear the empowering journey of Ashaba Faridah, a pilot in Uganda, East Africa. As founder of Bambino Life Foundation, she's committed to promoting girls' education among other initiatives focused on children. Drivers of child marriage in her country, an epidemic that affects nearly 1 in every 2 girls before the age of 18, include poverty and lack of access to education. You'll also hear from Have Fun Do Good's founder Adam Kunes. After taking so many trips that integrated service and giving back, he started his own social good travel company — where every life-changing experience combines adventure with altruism.

#15 2018 Year End Special (Part 1)

December 17, 2018

To wrap up an incredible 2018, we asked people from our community about how they're spreading kindness and making a difference in their own communities. In collecting these short stories, we weren’t focused on the scale of their impact. What really mattered was that these amazing humans got up and created the change they wanted to see. Check out the first installment of our two-part episode. We hope listening to our podcast made you believe that there's still a ton of good in the world. Stay tuned for Part 2 of our year end special this week!

#14 No More Hunger

November 13, 2018

Jasmine Crowe is a modern warrior against food waste and hunger. She didn't stop at just doling out food items to the hungry, she wanted to serve people to make sure they were fed in the most dignified way possible. In 2017, Jasmine launched Goodr, a company that connects businesses with local charities to deliver leftover food.

Through an app, Goodr drivers pick up surplus food from client companies and establishments and drop them off at designated locations including churches, food banks, nonprofit organizations and community groups. Jasmine strongly believes that when it comes to hunger, we’re actually looking at the wrong problem. People aren’t hungry because of scarcity. People are hungry because food is wasted to an unfathomable degree.

#13 Film Forward

October 22, 2018

Kweighbaye Kotee felt like she was in Disney World when she first stepped into a movie theater. But as she grew older, she went from being mesmerized with the sights and sounds of a film, to getting behind the camera to create a piece of art that told a story. A story that matters, and oftentimes a story we’re robbed of because people behind it are deemed powerless due to the color of their skin, their ethnicity or perhaps their gender.

Seeing inequality all her life, Kweighbaye was motivated to open doors and curate rooms filled with emerging directors, actors, actresses, writers and producers from all backgrounds. This is the story of Kweighbaye Kotee, filmmaker, founder of the Bushwick Film Festival and an advocate for underrepresented voices in film.

#12 Sing For Me

October 2, 2018

Jackie Vanderbeck is more than a gifted performer, she was born to use music as a tool to bring joy to people's lives, however momentary. Jackie left her hometown in Sacramento, California and moved to New York City, in the nexus of musical theater, to chase a dream. In the daily grind of auditioning and performing, Jackie felt disconnected from her craft. And in building her new life, she felt a void — the warmth from her grandparents who influenced her love for music. She searched hard for volunteer opportunities involving the elderly, but couldn't find one she could fully commit to. And so she started her own.

From singing acapella songs at a senior home on her own, Jackie is now growing Sing For Your Seniors, a nonprofit organization with 150 volunteer professional singers who connect and enrich the lives of the elderly at senior centers, hospitals and respite care facilities in New York City and beyond.

#11 Let Me In

September 19, 2018

From the outside, you'd think Hazami Barmada lived the American dream all her life. Hazami's armed with a Master’s degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. She's a consultant for the UN Foundation and the CEO of her own social impact firm.

But if you trace Hazami's roots (Syrian-Palestinan, to be exact) you'll find something different. She experienced what it was like to study at a refugee school in the outskirts of Damascus. When Hazami's family moved to the United States, they lost everything in Hurricane Katrina.

During Hazami’s time at the UN, she lost sleep over how big governments, systems and bureaucracies left people out -- excluding voices that should be leading conversations around the world's most pressing problems. So she went back to the drawing board and created the Global People's Summit, the first fully virtual and inclusive summit where people are not left out of conversations because of the color of their passports, inability to travel or social status.Together with her selfless team, the 2nd Global People’s Summit will be held on September 22nd, a conference that —in the truest sense of the word— lets people in.

Register for free to attend the summit on September 22, 2018: www.globalpeoplesummit.org
