Why they do what they do…
Mark and Josiah believe in the bond between a father and son, whether related by blood or not; and relationships that cross ethnic and generational boundaries. This website is a platform to hi-light the many aspects of those bonds and relationships including but not limited to father/son bonds. Our favored mode of sharing is through story in the forms of television, films, music and other forms of artistic expression and calling attention to others innovating and connecting in inspiring ways.
They want to help you:
• Fulfill your dream, whatever that project may be
• Relate to people better
• Through encouragement by listing resources
• By sharing our own and others’ testimonials
