They have played ball with the President, crashed a party at the Playboy Mansion, been on Oprah, reunited a father and son after 17 years, written a #1 NYT bestselling book and helped countless people accomplish their dreams. Relying on goodwill, guts and gumption, small town friends, Duncan, Ben, Dave and Jonnie travel the globe to complete their list of ‘100 things to do before you die’ and to help and encourage others to go after their own lists.
Inspired by the 1852 poem “The Buried Life” written by Mathew Arnold, these young men help others dig out from the day-to-day details that can sometimes bury you and help individuals articulate their most personal dreams and ambitions. For every item they complete on their own list, they help a stranger achieve one of their dreams.”
