What Is OneYearRoadTrip?
Follow the multi-media film project, OneYearRoadTrip, and track the Webb family in real time as we crisscross
America, visiting each state and DC, in search of children making the world a better place to live. Our
hope is to illuminate the stories of the kids we meet, and through those stories, inspire other children to
go change the world. While filming our adventure, we will immerse ourselves in the local literature, history,
science and art of the states we are in, and strive to live locally in each community we visit.
Why Spend a Year On the Road?
We want to be “Change-Makers”, and that begins with an intentional, personal connection.
As children, we -- Matt and Eva -- were dramatically shaped by experiences we had with our own families serving the poor face-to-face. We believe it is essential for our family to live a life of purposeful engagement. In order to understand these amazing children and their causes, we must plunge ourselves into their communities, and get to know these heroes of today’s Kid Nation -- those leading the way to a better tomorrow. OneYearRoadTrip will allow us to come alongside and illuminate kid-driven, life-giving causes all across the country, and further their impact in the world.
There are a lot of stories to tell, and our lives will be changed in the process. We hope for a better future. And it all begins with an intentional, personal connection.
