The Mission

benleroybelocal

Benjamin LeRoy launched Be Local Everywhere in late 2013 with an early New Year’s resolution: Do good, wherever you are, whenever you can. The catalyst was his observation that while our society can tend to focus on doom and gloom, in reality, people are generally eager to help others. This project aims to improve the collective pessimistic view of society and open everyone’s eyes to the importance of being the change you want to see. To that end, Ben, who is also the managing publisher of Tyrus Books, performed volunteer service work in all 50 states in 2014.
