After independently traveling the globe for one year performing 34 acts of service in her 34tunate year of life, Tracy Stayton was impressed by the desires of so many people to help, but was surprised by the lack of direction to do so.
This, coupled with the resounding realization that “no one has nothing” sparked the 4tunate movement. What started with the simple act of encouraging friends and family to focus on the positives by posting things on social media using the #4tunate hashtag – specifically at the end of each week on #4tunateFriday – has now turned into an entire movement that schools, organizations, and corporations are jumping on board to participate.
At its core, the 4tunate movement reminds everyone to focus on "the have" instead of "the have not’s" and to pay-it-forward through service work. Participants in the movement sign up and commit to a minimum of 4 acts of service per year. This quantifiable commitment is not only attainable, but impactful to the participant and those being served.
