New Seeds of Change Events COMING SOON!


Ride OM!: Cross-Country Bike Ride and Fundraiser

October-December 2015

The Seeds of Change Foundation support its President Christopher Gish and its Chair Eric Goodline returned from their intense winter biking journey from Colorado to California to raise awareness for Nepal.  

Gish (pictured here in yellow), a former lacrosse player who fell victim to an out of control driver, was nearly killed and left severely injured in 2000. Paralyzed and having been told he'd never walk again, Gish fought, promising that if he survived and could one day walk again, he'd travel the world helping others and aiding children and communities wherever in need. Having now healed his 17 broken vertebrae and regained full functionality, Chris has kept his promise.

Struggling through impossible odds, Gish and Goodline (shown in black) made it to California after meeting countless characters and generous souls along the way.  Raising funds and awareness for the Seeds of Change Foundation and our flagship project Lali Gurans Orphanage and Library. 

Videos and photos of this incredible journey will soon be published on the SOCF website. If interested in hearing Gish and Goodline's incredible story, please contact us at Please also visit our Press page for our recent SOCF press release on Ride OM!

Our special thanks to everyone who made this trip possible and supported Christopher Gish, Eric Goodline, and the Seeds of Change Foundation's journey. RIDE OM!


A Night For Nepal

August 10, 2015

A fantastically successful night of funk at Chef Justin Cucci's fantastic new restaurant and live music venue Ophelia's Electric Soapbox (Downtown Denver on 20th between Larimer and Lawerance), ClusterFunk! was thrown to benefit the millions devastated by the recent earthquakes in Nepal. Raising thousands of dollars for the Nepali people, members, friends, and patrons danced the night away with amazing performances from Atomga, Denver's own amazing 10-piece AfroFunk band. With amazing food from Chef Cucci, free drinks, and an incredible live auction, ClusterFunk! reminded us all of the potential good we can do if we all come together for a great cause. 

All Proceeds Are Tax-Deductible and go directly to Nepali Earthquake Relief Programs
