Have you guys heard of StoryCorps?
My friend Niha (over at La Vie En Rose) introduced me to the most amazing video a while back. StoryCorps is a non-profit that gathers people’s stories, animates them, and then puts them out for the story-seeking. Their mission statement is “Recording and Presevering America’s Stories.” How simple, meaningful, and wonderful is that. I love how storytelling has evolved from scotch in hand, fireplace talk, to something that anyone can access anytime they’re feeling detached from the world.
This is one is my favorite. Keep tissues near if you’re the emotional-type.
