On October 29, 2016, Mary Latham took off in her mom's car... 

to every single state in the U.S. to collect stories of human kindness. Latham used local radio and media to get the word out as she traveled through towns to collect her stories. Her mission evolved, and soon, Latham visited many high schools, church groups, rotary clubs, and other community gatherings to spread the message of More Good. The mission spanned through 154 strangers’ homes in all 50 states and covered more than 43,000 miles in her mom’s Subaru, nicknamed Old Blue. All of her stories will go into a book she plans to donate to hospital waiting rooms across the country.


She received national attention, appearing on MSNBC, The Today Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and in the pages of The Washington Post, along with local media in almost every state she visited across the country. She is currently writing her book and continues to speak on the More Good mission today, hoping to bridge the schisms that divide our country and inspire others with her stories of hope – proving there really is More Good in the world. You just have to look for it.
