Covering 60 to 100 miles per day, he hopes to gain insight into the human experience through impromptu interviews with locals he meets — and also to raise funds for ChildFund International.
“I am traveling the country asking people what motivates them, what inspires them, and what gives their lives meaning,” says Miller. “Partnering with ChildFund seems like a natural alliance for the simple reason that people can only ponder those questions once their basic needs of food and shelter are met. ChildFund’s invaluable work of providing for children in need is an inspiration to me.”
By speaking with area residents in the communities he visits, Miller hopes to spread the word about ChildFund’s mission and find answers to his questions.
He will raise funds on his site: http://socratesspoke.wordpress.com/.
