How it all began…
For 15 years Meri Lee would talk to Sooz about wanting to have a business. This business would, above all else, communicate to people that they are loved. It would remind people of good things, and encourage them. The two friends had much conversation about their ideas and dreams, but for a hundred different reasons, nothing ever came together. Just when it seemed that all hope was lost and it was time to give up on their big dream…an idea came. The Ken Burns’ special, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea” had premiered and the Goodness Girls found it very inspirational. To learn about men who had the wisdom and foresight to set aside land to be preserved for future generations, who sacrificed and gave their lives for this dream – that was compelling. To hear the beautiful words of John Muir float through the air as we watched the majesty of forest vale and mountain range parade across the screen – that was deeply moving. To think about the countless lives that have been blessed and changed because of the efforts of these people to hold on to something sacred and pass it on to the future – that was inspiring. The series proved to be quite thought provoking and challenging.
What if we were able to create a “Society” that was given to the same kind of purpose as the preservation of the parks? What if we could start a movement to preserve something huge and sacred; something that was at risk of fading out of style, if not full force extinction? What if we could stand up for Goodness? It was a concept not as easily outlined as a mountain range, but surely as important to preserve. So Meri Lee and Sooz got started, and The Society for the Preservation of Goodness was born. Our first creative adventure was Savegoodness.com and we anticipate many more. We hope you will feel the tug to travel along with us and join our quest to preserve goodness. We need you – for Goodness’ sake!
