Kim Dinan and her husband Brian had a great life in Portland Oregon with good jobs, a cool house and everything was going just fine when one day she thought, “there’s got to be more to life than paychecks and mortgages.”
That thought propelled them to quit their jobs and sell everything they owned to travel around the world and at their going away party, one of their friends handed them a gift. A yellow envelope. And in it was $1,000 dollars and instructions to give the money away to those that they encounter on their journey.
“Fear is not an indication that we should stop.” Kim Dinan
