TomTod drinks coffee. And so can you!

November 26, 2012

What do 750 strips of duct tape (and counting), Google+, an Assistant Superintendent, a stand-up comedian, and a downtown Canton art gallery all have in common? They’re all part of the wild journey known as TomTod Ideas!

As many of you know, 3 months ago this Friday I left my full-time job to launch a crazy dream called TomTod Ideas (www.facebook.com/tomtodideas). TomTod walks alongside middle school students through a year-long, personalized mentoring experience that empowers them to launch ideas they have dreamt up that will bring help and healing to the places in our world that need it most.

In that short time, an incredible group of volunteers have risen up to help push this idea forward and all sorts of wonderful things are happening that I would love to tell you about.

To aid in this story telling and to help TomTod continue to move forward, some friends and I are hosting a series of coffee hours over the next several weeks as opportunities to hear the vision and heart of TomTod and to enable friends like yourself to be part of the team that help support and encourage the dreams and possibility that lie within middle school students. There are no monetary, time, or talent requirements to join one of our gatherings…just a desire to hear more about what is happening.

You’ll find a wide variety of times/places available below and I do hope that you’ll join me for one of them! Please RSVP to jdh@tomtodideas.org at your earliest convenience so that we can make sure that we have ample beverages and informational materials for everyone present. I can’t wait to share with you!
