I’ll be honest.
Yes, it’s my job to research and report on amazing stories such as the duo who’ll traverse Minnesota’s 400 miles by dribbling from International Falls to the Iowa border, as part of a fundraiser to construct an inner city soccer pitch, complete with urban gardens to promote a community’s health, and even pride.
But media savants Alex Daley, 23, and Matt Scott, 24, have already done all that on their own, perfectly sharing ambitions of their 501(c)(3) nonprofit Dribble Daily.
Take a moment and check out their three-minute video, outlining the game plan, goals and even implementation.
Here’s what floors me.
These are two 2012 University of St. Thomas graduates who, unlike many of their peers, actually paid attention to the school mission statement “to advance the common good.”
They’re aiming to do just that before they even turn 25.
And you just can’t help but be impressed that these two followed their (lofty and still unmapped) dreams, instead of succumbing to their student loans and settling into jobs that didn’t mesh with their passions.
