The Miami AmeriCorps Alums had a special guest on Thursday. Daniel Becton, founder of Project Ubuntu, paid a visit to Salsa Fiesta to talk about his organization and the good work he is doing throughout the country.
Project Ubuntu visits, celebrates and supports people in one community in every state and Washington, D.C. who embody “ubuntu” through their commitment to service. Project Ubuntu firmly believes that such individuals transcend class and ethnic categories and connects them with a massive network of goodwill by telling their stories and mobilizing a contagion of kindness.
Project Ubuntu will spend one week in one community from each state and Washington, D.C., spanning 51 diverse urban and rural communities between Aug. 26, 2012 and Aug. 24, 2013. Daniel will cover 16,000 miles of American road and will also fly to Hawaii and Alaska.
We were honored to have Daniel spend his Thursday evening with us and share his message of connecting with and serving others. We strongly encourage everyone to follow Daniel on his blog and on twitter.
Check out Salsa Fiesta every Thursday at 7:00 or so as we hang out, eat burritos and build community through service.
