>The "Journey of Action" Bus paid a visit to Bend, Oregon.
I am happy to be able to blog about a young couple who are siblings, called Kassidy and Ryan Brown. Along with their film crew – Donovan and Nick, they are on a journey of a life time, heading from Alaska to Argentina on a very cool bus!
This is what they have to say about their journey they recently begun:
We believe our generation, Generation Y, is aware of the social and environmental challenges we face as a nation and as a world, but they lack tools for action. Fortunately, there are a lot people making change a reality, from social entrepreneurs to non-profit organizations and educational systems, but they receive little or no media attention.
We are driving from Alaska to Argentina to volunteer with and showcase these amazing active citizens. It’s a six month expedition that will take us into 14 different countries, covering over 15,000 miles.
Two filmmakers, Donovan Green and Nick Kova, are documenting the journey. We are blogging and uploading our photography daily, and most importantly we are producing weekly webisodes.
We are addressing a number of issues- the environment, education, human and civil rights, the global economy, poverty, global health, politics and others for the purpose of attracting and bringing together as many people as possible into this movement of action.
US Cities: Juneau, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Navajo Nation, Denver, San Antonio, Little Rock, and New Orleans.

They recently spent the weekend in Bend and presented an award at the Bend Film Awards Ceremony. Today I had the pleasure of capturing this refreshing couple, their crew and their vibrant bus. Of course they now have a ‘I LOVE BEND OR’ sticker on their bus bumper. They did say they love Bend!
I wish them well on their adventures….
