Grateful American Road Trip

About Grateful American Road Trip

We have turned the “Great American Road Trip” into the “Grateful American Road Trip” by connecting with people as we travel through all 50 US states.

We define our visit to a state by connecting with at least one person who has an inspiring story to share. We are specifically advocating for families that have children living with Crohn’s Disease or Cancer, are seeking to foster or adopt children, or who are doing extraordinary things to bring families out of poverty.

As we wander across the United States we are sharing the stories of the people we meet. Please browse through the stories below.

Helping People

We like to say that we “Travel With Purpose.” That’s a fancy way of saying that we look for any and every opportunity to help people wherever we go! This has taken the form of a variety of experiences and we’re sharing these stories to inspire you to help others as you wander the world!
