I am so excited to announce the arrival of my new book: Passport Project! The premiere edition was launched at TEDxYYC and on the CBC Eye-Opener. It has been exciting to hear about people using the book with their families, as team-building with their co-workers and on their own to explore their city!
All too often we think that we can only have an adventure if we go away to an exotic location. It is easy to feel depressed or bored when we aren’t learning or growing or meeting new people. This book was created so you could explore right in your own city and have amazing adventures and experiences that would remind you that life is awesome! There are so many exciting and inspiring people and places to see and meet. By expanding our worldviews we can break down barriers, misunderstandings and stereotypes and build bridges towards peace. I hope that by completing these challenges you will be inspired to share your positive stories. By sharing our positive stories we can combat mental health issues and become inspired to make positive change in our communities.
If you would like to purchase a copy of the book it is available for purchase at Shelf Life Books in Calgary. We will have a limited number of books available for purchase as we travel across Canada as well. If you would like to make a bulk order of the books please send us an email and we will arrange to have copies shipped to you. For educators and youth leaders please enquire by email about our classroom and school license to receive special discounts on large orders.
