Hi, [my name is Sean Toshima]


My name is Sean Toshima, and I recently had the honor of joining the i-ACT Team as the Multi-Media Specialist; also known as the it guy, a.k.a. I.T. guy.  Six months in and I’m learning things I’d never thought I would learn about. I’ve been places I never thought I would be, AND in 6 months I’ll be wed to the woman I want to be with forever #funfactaboutme. For those reading this and are not familiar with i-ACT (short for iactivism), we are a passionate group of 4, interconnected with specialists all over the globe, with skills ranging in multiple subjects who plant seeds for peace for Darfur [and beyond].  Our weapons of choice: educationsocial play time, and football.

Both my parents were teachers, one taught high school continuation in East LA, and the other via classroom & cable television across the United States.  I hope with my personal blog entries, you’ll get to know more about me and vice versa.  I’m curious to know who the other individuals are that hope for world peace, peace of mind, cohesion for the greater good and longevity of mankind and our land.  I know you’re out there, it’s just finding the time to say something so everyone knows that you care.

Currently we (Team i-ACT) are promoting our Little Ripples Tour de Goz Amer.  It’s a bike-a-thon through the month of October for all levels of cyclists, enthusiastic Spinners and explorers of the great outdoors who use bicycles as their mode of transportation.  All proceeds will benefit our Little Ripples Ponds in the refugee camps in Eastern Chad – please tell all of your cycling, Spinning friends!  Another thing to look out for, we will be blasting off a Kickstarter campaign in the near future to help fund our Widen digital asset management (a public accessible library of our thousands of photos and hundreds of hours of video from our expeditions to Darfuri refugee camps) to help communicate the issues that still exist for our friends and families across the globe, and to connect the Darfuris so they know they are not forgotten.

This is why i-ACT: to communicate friendship, to squash hate and to promote the positive efforts of the majority of the population like you and me.  The world is a scary place full of chaos but there are millions of people out there who care and who can help make a difference.  Here are all the others who act for i-ACT – More activists to the i-ACT Team are always welcome!

Thanks for reading!  I look forward to hearing from you soon, don’t be shy!

Best,

Sean Toshima
