Dana Nachman (Director, Batkid Begins), Patricia Wilson (CEO/Executive Director, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area) and I went on a press tour in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco in June, 2015 to help share the message of Batkid Begins -- what happens when people say ‘yes’ selflessly in the spirit of community service, and how the digital lives we live in can influence real world action.
