It’s Time to Pay it Forward

In the summer and fall of 2013,  Justin Hines and Ash & Bloom embarked on “The Vehicle of Change Tour” across North America where 100% of the proceeds were donated to over 70 different charities.   Just before the tour, a wheelchair accessible RV was kindly donated under the condition that Justin and his team would “Pay It Forward” to another deserving cause. The RV travelled over 20,000 km and represented the spirit of this meaningful adventure.   Have a look a couple videos from the tour with the RV:   www.youtube.com/embed/WukC1-zVjJM www.youtube.com/embed/5QnS5wNzD7c   The time has come to donate the “Vehicle of Change” to its new home.   It will need to be towed and has a few issues that will need to be addressed before getting it back on the road but will definitely be worth the loving attention it requires. The RV itself is is 14 feet long and has a electric lift to the inside suitable for most wheelchairs which is uncommon for this method of travel. It is currently being stored outside Barrie, Ontario and can be picked up immediately.   We’d love to hear why you think you could give the “VOC” a good home so please feel free to respond to this ad with your story.

Here’s a poem written by a young woman named Emilee Nimentz, inspired by Justin. She delivered this poem in spoken word on Monday July 15th at Justin’s Vehicle of Change tour stop in London, Ontario benefitting One Good Turn. Have a read through! ______ We are the artists. We are the writers of our destinies. you, me, us, all – Have lines that shape the corners of our lips from where we have laughed so hard. Some coming in around our eyes from where we have fought back flood gates of tears. Would it be nice if we didn’t know darkness? Would our skin look so smooth? Hands soft, Fingers unfurled. Would we know the burn in our legs? From charging up mountains – Or would our muscles be wasting away along with our laughter? How can we triumph without any falls? You see – The stars are old – Because they are waiting for us to reach them. Millions of years – Lost in galaxies. Sometimes they try to trick us. Sometimes they shoot across the sky just hoping to get our attention Reach. Until there is no blood left in your fingertips – Until you have used every fibre of every spec of every hope in every cell. Dreams are weaved from the toughest of fabrics – Do not forget this. But, do not compare. Struggle is what toughens our thread – Because some of our mountains are other people’s molehills – Sometimes other people’s mountains are your Everest’s, Your Galaxies, Your How-Could-I-Ever’s. Or sometimes your struggles are just putting on socks or looking in a mirror. Sometimes your bones have been fused together. You see, they were reaching so high. And often times – Our struggles are just a push off the horse to get the courage to remember freedom and bareback riding. Sometimes it’s the stars – Finding ways to grab our attention. Here: They gave you a scalpel. Open up your hand. Show off the lines set in stone by triumphant clenched fists. Put an incision, Deep into your chest, On your sleeve, Or wherever you keep your heart. It will hurt, it will hurt, it will hurt. Courage...
