Press Coverage!-- Card Update #12

Someone got interviewed for the newspaper.  This guy:

Okay, a few someones got interviewed for the newspaper. Not just Bubbles, but us guys too:

So last week, the newspaper from the area where I grew up ran a story on our project. Cool! Not only was the reporter gracious and easy to connect with, she was really interested in what we were up to. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with her and then reading her take on our story. (On page A7! With 3 big pictures!) I was glad to hear that the message of love and connection shone through, and super-stoked that she quoted me talking about people having ideas all the time, but action being the extraordinary part. The article only has one inaccuracy, which was a note about me asking people to stop sending cards. (I haven't!) In fact, they've been trickling in from here and there, including Bali a few days ago and Taiwan today. Fun surprises every one of them!
