Start Something That Matters
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: 208 BTSU
Description: “Change your thoughts and you change your world” – Norman Vincent Peale
Starting something that matters can be challenging and might even seem impossible. But if you break down the word "impossible" you get "I'm possible." TOMS Campus Club wants to help make your "impossible" dreams become a reality. It doesn't matter what stage your idea is in or if you do not have one at all. We want to provide resources along with a discussion and a showing of the TOMS documentary to everyone who comes to help them get started on something that matters to them. At the end of the night you will walk away with as many different resources as we can find to help you feel and be more prepared to continue your journey.  And a few might walk away with a copy of Blake Mycoskie's Start Something That Matters.
