Mary Latham started a project on October 29th —the More Good Road Trip — where she is driving to every single state in the U.S. to collect stories of random acts of kindness and compiling these stories into a book she plans to donate to hospital waiting rooms. Mary arrives in Charleston this coming week and will be staying with my family for a night during her time here.
She created a website and Facebook page where she posts stories and photos daily throughout the entire trip. The project is one that started during her mother’s battle with cancer. Her mother passed away in March 2013 and that is when, during the time spent in a waiting room at Sloan Kettering Hospital, Mary came up with the idea to create something positive for such a dark place. A book to give hope to those who desperately need it while they wait. She is driving her mother’s old car for the journey.
Mary needs your help! Please check out her website for inspiring stories from the first three months of her trip. Charleston is a community full of amazing people and she would love to share your stories through her project. No good news is too small!
If you have a story to tell, please feel free to email Mary directly at: [email protected].
