Street Dreams Project

I've blogged about my amazing friend, Alex Petrou, before. Remember this? 

For the past month and half Alex has been cycling across America for his campaign Street Dreams; a cause to fight back against youth homelessness in America and Australia. Get more specific details here. 

“Street Dreams Project” is the world’s first International Corporation only sponsored competition, which focuses specifically on contributions from small, medium and large-scale corporations. The key concept of Street Dreams Project is to see which country, represented by its corporations, can raise the most funds through corporate sponsorship. Street Dreams Project intends to bring serious attention to the level of youth homelessness in both Australia and the U.S.A, while fueling the patriotism within each respective country. By creating a friendly competition between corporations, which offers the successful nation “bragging rights” over the other, Street Dreams Project will ultimately fund programs that will reduce the number of homeless youth in Australia and the U.S.A.
Do not miss your chance to become part of a one of a kind International Fundraiser that  Seed of Thought Co-founder, Alex Petrou cycle across the USA, from L.A. to New York City. Sleeping in Homeless Shelters, on the street and relying on the kindness of strangers, he hopes to gain a first hand experience of what thousands of homeless youth experience everyday.

It's such an honor to know someone so passionate, so driven, and so emotionally involved in the bettering of our world. He's taught me so much since meeting him just a mere 6 months ago in Australia. I have found that one person really CAN make a difference and happiness is our for the taking! We just have to be willing and ready to embrace it.
"I was amazed at how a few small choices empowered me again with optimism and a rejuvenated drive to succeed, down a road I was passionate about – helping and inspiring people. If I am going to live in this world, I am going to do what I can to change my life and the lives of others around me in a positive manner. I will fit 26 hours in to every day if I have to, and I will do it all with a smile on my face"- Alex Petrou
