About

Who We Are

We are a community of people that believe in stories that lift up the world and the people in it.

Vision

What the world looks like when we’re succeeding

People are going to local screenings of our movies w/live experiences that enhance the screening. for example people are in costumes the characters from the mouses & pieces that look like the set are there so people can take pictures to share on social media. There are makeup artists painting faces, hair, a henna tatoos like characters t designs from the movie.
They are excited about the movie because they’ve been reading the blog of one of the characters for 4 years & after the more they are taking a trip designed around themes from the movie t actually taking part in positive change initiatives.
Change initiatives go from super-personal-creating More sustainable happiness in your life, to career-moving into your next career- to global-the UN’s sustainable development goals.

Purpose

Why are we doing what we are doing beyond money

We are sharing stories and creating stories to help people get through tough times like Once Upon a Time, Moana, and Hamilton have done for Ami. 

We are building an inclusive community to co-create transmedia stories that help people be the best version of themselves and help pave the way to accomplish the UN’s 16 sustainable development goals. 

We are exploring new ways to produce entertainment and media that help the people involved live more fulfilling, sustainable lives. We are bringing people together in ways that strengthen their creativity and community.

Mission

Why are we doing what we are doing beyond money

We make stories for people who love laughing, adventure, and action. We work with partners who care about making the best stories that serve the audiences the stories are made for and their communities. 

Practice

How we do that

We write and produce non-fiction articles and content for our blog, YouTube, and social media channels. We are an influencer who supports products and services in the story space (and with Lift Your World in more spaces). 

We provide the transmedia database and the Lift Our World database. 

We produce stories and storyworlds that connect and that include some educational entertainment that help people be the best version of themselves and help pave the way to accomplish the UN’s 16 sustainable development goals.Then, we find the partners who are the best in the media they will focus on and raise funding and develop those stories. 

We encourage people to get involved in the blog and story dev process, but we review articles and post them ourselves/internally. 

We create social impact marketing campaigns around the stories that build community. We go to conventions were our people go and have booths with awe-inspiring displays that feature our offerings and merchandise that has to do with the monthly celebrations and honorings that we do. We ship the stuff in-stead of making people walk around with heavy things. We give them a photo and some stories about the things they purchased that they can take with them and display when they are reviewing their finds. They are like 3D pop-up books. Lightweight and portable, but awe-inspiring and emotional. Maybe there’s even audio – like a hallmark card pop-up with audio stories. 

We also make inventions like the virtual whiteboard room. 

We produce traveling experiences where people adventure together, volunteer together, and/or have intense conversations together (with help from the Center for Non-Violence, Holbrook, Priya Parker (The Art of Gathering), the sustainable train in India, The Peace Corp, PCI (entertainment education non-profit).
