Making Their Mark: David and Mike Hrostoski

Let’s talk makers, round two. If you missed the first one (what are you thinking?!) check out writer-director-actor-rockstar Rich here.


The next two to highlight are “Making Their Mark” from their car. Yep, this summer they are dedicating three months towards the service of others while driving across the U.S. And they’re calling it “the great American road trip meets the Peace Corps.”

A Summer To Serve challenges two brothers to experience the full spectrum of volunteer service this summer. “From high level strategic work with non-profits and entrepreneurs, to manual labor on highways and farms, they will do it all.”

So I know what you are thinking, who are these people?
o    David Hrostoski is a singer/songwriter, attraction/confidence coach and student at the University of Arizona. He’s “18 going on 30” as he’s grown up around people much older than him all his life.
o    Mike Hrostoski is a “30 going on 18” adventurer, yoga teacher, life coach, writer and full-time traveler. He writes a blog called “Adventures in Personal Development” and lives life on purpose every day.

And why exactly??
Last summer David and Mike took a month-long road trip to celebrate the life of their mother who unexpectedly passed away. They drove 4,100 miles, spread her ashes in 40 memorable locations and made a documentary about their experience.

Additionally, they asked people the following question: “What would you do if money wasn’t an issue?” The three most frequently received responses were:
o    Volunteer
o    Spend time with family
o    Travel

Take a moment – isn’t that what we all want?

So friends, here’s where you come in. Check out the tentative list of cities below. Are you working with or do you know of an organization that needs help? Also, do you have a couch for these two good-deeders? And if you’re feeling really crazy, you can make a donation.

This is a solid example of two individuals taking time for what’s important in life. Follow the adventure at
