Our Familial LinkBryan Forsythe - Crack the Depression Code

“About two-thirds of the ladies are here and have seen/read the newsletter & poem. One woman cried. She has had a crappy week, and was really on edge, looking forward to a few days with other crafters. She said your poem hit a nerve and she broke down. Just loved it,and it made her feel good.”

A lifestyle to live byAmir

“I want to thank you both for the Challenge the Storm bracelet and accompanying poem. Both those, as well as the movement you have started, truly touch me beyond words.  I have fought for my life during some very dark days over the years, and the positivity and support that you are bringing to people is just what this world needs more of. You’re in my heart, and I can’t wait to see more of the joy that this movement brings to others as it grows.”

When I needed it mostBethany

“Yesterday the rainwater and high tide here in Charleston brought to the surface a bunch of trash in the marsh behind my apartment complex. To Challenge the Storm—literally—I spent an hour gathering plastic bags, cans, and styrofoam containers (and even a cooler) from the edges of the marsh and properly disposed of them. Thanks for encouraging me to take positive action!”
