  • THEM = US
    • I am
    • Allan Isfan
    • and I WANT
    • to change
    • the WORLD
  • one at a time
  • Do you see any borders?
  • We created imaginary lines to keep people OUT … or IN
  • But kids don’t know the borders are there LET’S NOT TELL THEM
  • I was born in moved to and live in Romania France Canada
  • I am not a musician certainly not an athlete definitely not an artist
  • I try even if I suck  but I don’t give up!
  • I am a proud engineer
  • a co-founder of with my wife (OMG she’s awesome, snagged her in High School when I was 13)
  • and a co-founder of
  • I film, direct & produce the Nasty Hockey Show … for FUN
  • I LOVE My FAMILY
  • and we have lot’s of FUN
  • Life is good but …
  • One of my girls said
  • after at our house
  • “ I didn’t know there was a WAR going on?”
  • Holy crap …! and it hit me
  • We have forgotten that we live on earth!
  • How can we possibly care about pollution poverty war
  • when that stuff happens to THEM and not US ?
  • Hmmm … let’s explore
  • You hear about a terrible accident You feel bad … and get back to business
  • then you find out your daughter’s best friend
  • Was on that bus And is very badly hurt
  • Now you feel much much worse … you think about her, her parents, your daughter, you can’t seem to think of anything else
  • The accident is the same you didn’t change but now You CARE!
  • WHY?
  • THEM = US
  • Empathy is often characterized as the ability to put oneself into other's people shoes … to feel what they feel
  • What if our kids had a way to make friends
  • all over the WORLD
  • so they could learn talk share play and teach each other ?
  • If there was such a place, is it possible that
  • that THEM = US would spread virally like chocolate rain
  • and this could … G r a d u a l l y … change the world
  • because they could FEEL the pulse of our planet through their friends ?
  • I think so
  • and I’m telling the whole WORLD!
  • If you agree come find me and let’s do it together
