Bob Hoffman

Bob Hoffman is the Public Relations Director for the Wharton Center in East Lansing, Michigan and is also a motivational speaker. Bob Hoffman started a movement called ePIFanyNow.org in 2009 in order to spread kindness, after he was rudely cut off by another driver on a Michigan roadway. Bob Hoffman is a Michigan Light because of how ePIFanyNow has been the catalyst for spreading good to people in Michigan.

You can get to know Bob Hoffman better through his website at http://www.bobhoffman.org/. Bob Hoffman describes himself this way on his website:

I have a quote in my office that reads “How you spend your days is how you spend your life.” I remind myself to spend my days smelling the flowers, listening to great music and singing along, reading by the fire, enjoying my family and friends, belly laughing, having a good cry, letting go of the negative, reading positive quotes, going to the movies, visiting with the elderly who can teach me so much… (Source)
Here is the video of a CBS Evening News Story on Bob Hoffman's work at ePIFanyNow.

According to the group's Twitter page ePIFanyNow works like this: "We gather large groups of people together and ask them to go out into the community to do random acts of kindness. Then, we gather to share our stories (Source)!"

ePIFanyNow has biannual events where participants are encouraged to spread random act of kindness. The events started in the Greater Lansing, Michigan area and have expanded to other areas of Michigan. Bob Hoffman's dream is for the concept to catch on across the United States.

Events: ePIFanyNow will have an event on Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 2:00-6:00 at Bud Kouts Chevrolet located at 2801 E. Michigan Avenue, Lansing, Michigan (Source).
