When Mom is with me, I try to share my passions with her - Healthy food and outdoor fun. It feels good being ourselves - silly and full of life. She listened to the song I dedicate to her "Life is better with you" ♥️ michaelfranti love mom followyourbliss alzheimerfighter

Happy Earth day Birthday Dad! This is my Papa bruce_wuorenmaa. My Dad has shared his birthday with earth day since 4/22/1970. I remember him telling me when I was , that every year all the would say happy Earth day Bruce! , and he would correct them sayin "it's my birthday" haha. I think it's pretty cool and a blessing to have a dad with the master number 22 and an Earth Day birthday. I think it's been a good reminder for him each year, how important our planet is, and how much we need to love our mother earth. It has definitely played into his life considerably over the years. He loves all plants and has a huge garden and succulent collection. He is a good man who loves mother earth. Go check out his insta and wish him a happy Earth Day Birthday and check out his amazing photography. Btw my Dad loves Michael franti and was soo stoked to meet him. Happy Birthday Dad! earthday2019 earthday happybirthday happyearthday michaelfranti gratitude loveyou peacefulwarrior peaceonearth powertothepeaceful soulrocker

My favorite part of today so far was being able to read “Where in the World is Away”, by Michael Franti to J’s kindergarten class. The story follows two friends, little Lee and little Lou, as they learn about where our trash and recycling go! After the book, we had a fun little discussion about how to reduce, reuse, and recycle these five and six year olds give me so much hope for future generations! They already know so much about how to respect and protect our earth, and I’m so grateful to join in on the conversation with them and encourage them to take these important lessons out into the world with them as they grow 🌎🌍🌏. michaelfranti whereintheworldisaway michaelfrantiandspearhead reducereuserecyle recycle reduce reuse kindergarten momlife earthday everydayisearthday

Every single soul is a poem. With all the people hating and hurting each other, I don't understand how people could get upset about people of the same sex caring for each other. No life's worth more than any other, no sister worth less than any brother. During my travels in Iraq, Israel, Gaza, Brazil, Indonesia, Japan, Europe and all over the United States, I have seen and heard the voices of people who want change. They want the stabilization of the economy, education and healthcare for all, renewable energy and an environmental vision with an eye on generations to come. Playing on the streets of Iraq, or in Israel or the Gaza strip, I'd sing angry protest songs against war. People would say, 'Make us clap, make us dance, and laugh and sing.' It really made me think about the importance of happy music. All my songs are different, but from the overall experience, I want people to sense that they can overcome and move through difficult times and find strength in my music.

Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica, Bali, etc, etc…love, inspiration, illness, injury, heartbreak, more love, marriage, birth, LAUGHTER, jokes, new albums, PTTP Festival So many past adventures and so many more to come! Coming up on 20 years now and can’t even begin to put into words how grateful I am for this guy on so many levels. Feliz cumple, Michael… Wishing you all great things in this next adventure around the sun!

michaelfranti is such a cool guy! We were about to leave the show because my sons ears were hurting so bad. We got to meet him on the way out and he asked if Jonás wanted some ear plugs so we could stay!

One of the best parts of music festivals is discovering new artists (well new to me anyway). Before Tortuga I never even heard of this guy - Michael Franti. I was lucky to meet him before his show backstage. I’m amazed how he works the crowd and his music is very upbeat and current. Check him out sometime. I’m hooked! michaelfranti tortugamusicfestival michaelfranti soulrocker

Today was really special! Musician, humanitarian, & REBBL Collective member michaelfranti & his wife saraagahfranti visited our team at the HQ! He shared his story and the stories of the some of the “ordinary people living extraordinary lives” and the lessons he’s learned from them. From midwives to woodworkers, each person has the capacity to make a difference in the lives of those around them and in the world! His film “Stay Human” speaks to the extraordinary capacity within each of us, and inspires us in this crazy world. His humanitarian work aligns so well with the work we do with our founding nonprofit partner Not For Sale ( nfs), which works to eradicate the root causes of human trafficking. We believe in the value of each and every single human life, and we are on a mission to fight against exploitation. We are so thrilled to welcome MichaelFranti to REBBL so together, we can co-create a brighter future! [Learn more about our mission & work on our website!] EarthMonth REBBLwithaCause
