As 2017 approaches, I'm casting some vision for "joy rides."

In addition to my weekly rides, on a bi-monthly basis, I want to orchestrate larger-scale opportunities for you to join me in affirming that people matter.

In January 2017, kind hearts from four states joined together to provide new socks for our neighbors in need. 270 pairs were collected and distributed to community partners in Central Florida, including Coalition for the Homeless, Residential Women's Counseling Center and the Orlando Rescue Mission.

As March 2017 kicks off, in alignment with "spring cleaning," we'll be collecting gently-used clothes donations for foster children, and Dress for Success in the Central Florida area.

Let’s fill up social media with “joy rides”, and make our respective corners of the world a little brighter on Nov. 24, a day that's typically referred to as "Black Friday". Anyone can take a "joy ride" - it's just a spontaneous act of kindness to affirm that people matter.

1. Join the movement; take a joy ride - click here to RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/1077097222326788/
2. There's no script or specifications, just say/bring/go what/where would be natural for you
3. Document your efforts, with the hashtag #JoyFriday
