So what is Walking The Earth all about?

First and foremost, it’s where we tell stories to shine a light on people worth supporting and places worth saving.

People doing amazing things around the world — whether they are helping refugees in Greece, or improving women’s lives in Kenya, or American veterans — are busy doing what they love. We’re stepping in to help them by doing what we do best, sharing compelling, well-written tales that inspire.

We hope you enjoy what you read.  We hope these features open your eyes and motivate you to get more involved, as well as to read our more in-depth content.

Our first stories will be from Kenya, where James walked through the Naboisho conservancy with his friend Maison Tyga, from Greece where James walked the beach with Constantine Kadel, a former Wall Street executive now helping refugees and from the streets of Atlanta, where he walked while Senator Max Cleland rolled along in his wheelchair.

So enjoy the stories and thank you for your support. Please feel free to email James at or Stephanie at with any questions thoughts or ideas.
