BigBlendMagazines.com Mission Statement
"BigBlendMagazines.com is a company based on the belief that education is the most formidable weapon that can be waged against fear, ignorance and prejudice. It is our belief that education starts at home and branches outward. Education leads to travel, and travel leads to understanding, acceptance, and appreciation of cultures and customs different to our own, and ultimately to world peace. Our company is further based on the principle that networking, communication, and helping others to promote and market themselves leads to financial stability; thus paving the way to better education, travel, and the spirit of giving back to the community."

5 Year SPIRIT OF AMERICA Tour
Connecting America as a Family to America's Best Idea, by Visiting all 401 National Parks, to Enhance Quality of Life and Financial Stability, through Education, Communication, Preservation and Sustainable Practices.
Nancy and Lisa's goal is to visit each of the National Parks by the end of the National Parks Centennial, on August 25, 2017. During these visits they will be hosting live on location Big Blend Radio broadcasts from the National Park gateway communities, as well as producing videos for Big Blend TV, editorial pieces and radio shows for each of Big Blend's ten online radio and video magazines. "It is our intention to showcase not only the beauty and historic heritage of America’s Best Idea, but to show how they add to America's quality of life, as well as the economic and environmental benefits of fully funding, staffing, protecting and expanding our National Park system, especially for the gateway communities. Our parks and public lands bring individuals and families together through educational and recreational opportunities, as well as the chance to experience our natural world in a clean and safe environment."
As ambassadors for Quantum Learning Network's “8 Keys of Excellence Character Education Program”, the Spirit of America tour also embraces the challenge of bringing excellence to 50 million children and young adults. This free program guides young people and families, toward a positive future full of confidence, motivation, creativity, team work, leadership and valuable life principles.
