    • Rob Greenfield

      Yeah! Hope to meet a lot of people from the GOOD community!

  • Susanna Porter

    Thanks for doing so much GOOD! You are a great inspiration.

  • myrnagreenfield

    Go Rob! I'm so impressed that you never stop trying to do good.

    • Rob Greenfield

      Hey Myrna! I'll let you in on a secret. I find it a lot of fun to do good!

      • Alessandra Rizzotti

        I was about to say- is Myrna related to you (just bec of the last name)!

  • Jackie Ramirez

    Very inspirational story Rob. Thank you so much for sharing with the community and what a great take away. I will always keep that in mind when something good or bad impacts my life. I'm a cyclist and my boyfriend and I have been looking for urban bikes to ride on a daily basis (i.e., to work, to the market, to the train station etc.). Instead of you buying a bike for me, do you have a place I can buy a bike from to help support your cause?
    I look forward to your follow up story after your SF-SD tour! Hope to see you in LA.

    • Rob Greenfield

      Hey Jackie!
      I think one of the best things you can do is take part in a build-a-bike program. You volunteer with a non-profit and learn to build your own bike and then get to keep it. Community Cycles in Boulder is my favorite group but I am sure there is something like that in your area.
      Learn more about programs like these at
      I will be at the Venice Ale House on the 25th hosting a stamping party from 5:00-8:00 and hope you can join!

      • Jackie Ramirez

        Fabulous idea! Thank you so much for the resources. That's a great program and there must be more like it across the nation. I'll get in touch with them. I look forward to the stamping party.

        • Rob Greenfield

          Great! I'll see you on Friday! Let me know then if you find any build a bike programs in LA.

  • Kristin Pedemonti

    Thank you for all the good you are doing. Spreading Good is a GREAT idea and the best part?! Doing good is contagious! I applaud you for making as much Positive Impact as you are able while leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible. :) Our stories help us build bridges between each other & create a kinder world and better understanding. If you have not yet seen please do, You'd LOVE it! So many tales of Kindness. Sending you a HUGE HUG & Big THANKS for being a Wonderful example for us all. For hosting, check out I've hosted & couch surfed worldwide; it's an awesome community! I truly resonate with what you're doing. I quit my fulltime job & sold my small home and possessions in 2005 to become a full-time Cause-Focused Storyteller & create/facilitate a volunteer literacy project in Belize. I've donated programs for 33,000 students and trained 800 teachers to use their own cultural stories in their classrooms. This year I was able to partner and took the project to Kenya where I collected true tales of overcoming adversity. yay! I carry my Free Hugs sign Every where I go; I hug homeless and everyone else who wants/needs one. I sit and listen as people share their stories. I also share GOOD via Storytelling; Everyone has a Story. Best wishes and happy trails! HUG, Kristin

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Cool Kristin! I recommend you fill out your profile so we all know about the awesome work you're doing! That way the community can support you!

      • Kristin Pedemonti

        Thank you Alessandra. Yes I really do need to complete it. Will try to do so right now. HUG

        • Alessandra Rizzotti

          SWEET! Just tweeted you from GOOD's handle! We should talk about you telling your awesome stories!

  • Sarah N

    Fantastic! I live in Los Angeles, but, unfortunately, I'll be out of town when you come through here...but I'll definitely get involved in the Stamp Stampede project! Also, I was struck by your statement that, "I'm not a political guy at all," because what you are doing is in fact sending a powerful political message, in a very positive way! So kudos to you!

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      Sarah- do you do political work? If so, you should fill out your profile with a pic and about me! We'd love to support anything you're doing!

  • Ben Mawhinney

    Dude, I hope you get your bike back. :)

  • John W

    This sounds like a great thing your doing, Rob, and I hope many people come out to support your mission of doing good works. And, I hope your bike is finally returned to you (I can't believe it hasn't yet, but I guess it's a larger city than Boston, where I currently live!)

  • Michelle Heathers

    Very cool! I know the guys who started ZamBikes in Zambia. They make bamboo bikes as well.

  • Kelly Weiss

    Hi Rob I would love to contribute however I can when you are you in Venice area October 25/26. Cycling is my favourite activity.

    • Rob Greenfield

      Hey Kelly!
      Thanks so much for the offer to help!
      Friday the 25th I am hosting a stamping party at the Venice Ale House from 5-8. I hope you can join and please invite anyone you think would enjoy. I'd love to go for a ride or a run or both with you as well. Send me an email at

  • Alessandra Rizzotti

    Really excited for your tour. Let us know what you need to help you along the way. Glad you listed out some great things we can do to help. I hope to make it this Friday night!

    • Rob Greenfield
