Ismini and Mark Svennsson fell in love at Georgetown University and quickly knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. After planning the wedding and honeymoon of their dreams, they decided to ditch their traditional elaborate wedding plans and use their saved wedding budget for good! They have been traveling to each state and completing one awesome act of kindness per State-stop, with the hopes of completing their two year journey this spring. This nationwide campaign to help organizations, and encourage voluneteerism, in all 50 states was hash tagged #50Acts. It became such a hit and grew so much support they decided to start a non-profit called Stay UNITED and the rest is Do-Gooder history.
Naturally upon reading this super compelling story on CNN this morning, BSB reached out to the couple and was surprised to receive an almost instant reply! Watch their video below and get to know the hearts behind this inspiring couple…
