  • Manifesto

    People who say WE can’t change the world ARE wrong. 

    We will make some noise and cause a scene! 

    We will challenge each other and the world & will stop pointless judgment. 

    We know that the people sleeping on the sidewalk could have been us or our

    closest friends if our lives were just a little bit different.

    And the people we see sleeping on the sidewalk COULD be our friends if we gave them the chance. 

    It’s time for us to speak up for the people in our streets, our cities, our world. 

    It’s time for us to grow our passion, shine bright and change the future.

    John Lennon said it best: “A dream you dream alone is only a dream.

    A dream you dream together is a reality.” 

    It is essential to our lives to do good for others!

    The only way we can truly be happy is if we are making others happy! 

    That is this Hippie's goal!
