The 36 Percent Project is Moving!

First, I want to thank everyone who has supported the 36 Percent Project. Whether you read a post, left a comment, followed 36Prcnt on Twitter, or told someone to check it out, you have my sincerest appreciation for your time.

This project is a part of a larger vision I have to make a difference in my community, and hopefully, other communities as well. I am being vague right now, but in the upcoming months I will be able to share the results of my hard work with you.

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in a while. Well, I want you to know that the 36 Percent Project is alive and well.

The reason things have been so quiet around here is because I am planning to relaunch 36 by building a new website that will allow you more opportunities to learn, discuss, and act.

There will be a new domain, a new look, new content, new everything.

I am hoping that you will support the new 36 just as you have supported its beginnings. I am open to any suggestions or input you may have on how I can improve upon this project. You can email me at with any questions or comments you may have.

I appreciate your patience, and I cannot wait to share the next chapter of this journey with you.

While you are here, please check out my past posts and share your thoughts. I will be checking this site regularly while developing the new one.
