What's the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase "give to others"?
The most common response is to have an image of a soup kitchen come to mind...or perhaps the picture of a homeless man on the street corner, holding up a cardboard sign.
While preparing soup, painting walls, and handing out lunches can be important and significant contributions to society (and we certainly plan on doing those things as part of our trip), we also don't want to negate the power of using our skill set for the greater good.
As we travel, we will try our best to intentionally put our talents to work to help people. Quite a few of you have asked what kind of things we'll be doing. We'll be sharing some specific ideas and examples soon (along with our tour schedule).
In the meantime, here's a short list of our skills after a quick brainstorm.
Tim's Skills/Strengths include:

We share these w/ you not to boast, but to inspire you to consider what traits you have that you might be able to contribute to a local non-profit, church, or school...to your next door neighbor...to the single parent at your workplace.
You DO have something to give. Whether you're 1 or 100, a nurse or an engineer, a guitar player or a seamstress, a billionaire or a person with only a few dollars to your name. You do. You can. You should.
You won't regret it.
