Participate in Inspiration Project

Porter-Starke Services has embraced the model set forth in the international project, This I Believe, to inspire our community towards health, balance and hope. With the assistance of the non-profit This I Believe organization, Porter-Starke Services invites you to participate. We're calling this local event "The Inspiration Project: Stories that Strengthen Us."

Based on a popular 1950s NPR radio series, This I Believe, was hosted by acclaimed journalist Edward R. Murrow. Each day, Americans gathered around their radios to hear compelling essays from the likes of Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson, Helen Keller, and Harry Truman, as well as corporate leaders, cab drivers, scientists, and housewives - anyone willing to distill into a few minutes the guiding principles by which they lived. Since 2005, the revival of This I Believe has featured essays by prominent Americans such as Colin Powell, Gloria Steinem, and Bill Gates, as well as those of everyday citizens, including students, artists, scientists, writers, politicians and even an astronaut. Thousands have accepted the invitation to write their statements of personal belief.
