The Story of Well Planet Publishing Founders, Brothers Tom & Andy Hafer: Thanks to unusually socially engaging parents, Tom and Andy's childhoods were filled with mission trips, feeding the underprivileged, elderly care projects, refugee resettlement, and human rights rallies. They never forgot how freeing it felt to work on the positive side of change like their parents did. The brothers never had a messiah complex -thinking they could save the world - but they had witnessed so often the winds of change shift, like a cool spiritual breeze blowing off the ashes of despair, simply because a community started to collectively believe in itself. Once you experience the best of the human spirit dozens of times, it is hard not to be the eternal optimist when you contemplate our future as a society. So, the brothers have dedicated their professional lives to building dynamic communities who understand a Well Planet is possible, it is just a matter of changing the direction of the wind.
