The Story Behind The Journal:

"I was in a plane crash today. I am okay, however, I am uncertain my life will recover. As I lay here, trying to sleep in the loud silence of the night, I can't help but feel overwhelmed beyond understanding.

I am comforted by gratitude and I am inspired by those around me. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Take A Look Inside:

As journals are completed and returned to their owners, we get the chance to see some incredible Acts Of Good. Here are a few snapshots of what good is being done in the world!

Journal #: 1957

"My father gave me a clock that he purchased for the first home him and my mother owned. It was some of my first memories, listening to it tick and tock, back and forth. It was broken in a move over 25 years ago and sat in our garage lifeless.

A friend of mine gave it to m e today fully restored! I don't know how he got it, how long he had it, but it brought a lifetime of memories back. This journal accompanied the gift and I am so honored to be a part of this.

When my dad died it was very hard for me. He wasn't the best dad in the world, and at the time it was okay. Dads were more quiet and less active in the kids life. I remember, he would read in the room, quietly. The only noise was the clock. It was almost a part of who he was, or how I saw him.

Writing this now makes me tear up with emotion, because I can hear the clock in my living om and a part of me feels like my dad is in the room also. Quietly sitting, providing protection, love and security to our family.

My kids are long gone, but I hope this clock can be passed on for years to come and mean as much to them as it does to me."

Journal #:1914

"My Aunt took me out on a girls day. We went and got our nails done. I got my hair cut and we even went to my favorite place to eat, The Olive Garden. This was nice because it was not my birthday or anything! She is the best person and I want to be like her when I grow up."

-Age 10 (Portland, OR).

Journal #: 427

"It is our sororities fall formal ad my sorority "mom" gave me a dress that i love of her to wear to the dance. The next day, this journal was on my bed with a note that said, "Keep the dress!". I was so shocked I cried! It was such a surprise of kindness, that i felt so lucky to have such a wonderful sister and friend."

-Age 20 (Austin, TX).
