Video: In case you’re not living yet — June 7, 2013

Video: In case you’re not living yet

Last month we watched this mini-documentary: My Last Days: Meet Zach Sobiech. This is an incredible story of a 18 year old diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, who passed away on May 20, 2013. Zach’s song ‘Clouds’ is a beautiful piece about living with joy and hope when you know you don’t have long left. It’s had over seven million views to date.

The video makes you reflect. It makes you breathe. It makes you realise how precious everything is.

Don’t wait… live now.

News: Amanda Palmer’s winning TED 2013 talk — March 2, 2013

News: Amanda Palmer’s winning TED 2013 talk

Amanda Palmer has pretty much become a household name in crowdfunding – she raised over $1.1 million on Kickstarter (after asking for $100,000) to launch her new album. She’s just wrapped up speaking at this year’s TED conference in California, where the talk received rave reviews. She spoke about how her experience as a statue (aka street performer) was applicable to the future of the music industry. Ultimately, it’s about how we can connect with people in a way that allows them to help you. It’s the art of asking and letting.

The talk also encapsulate our explorer ethos at The Fetch with Amanda discussing her global roaming and couch surfing experiences.
