NEW YORK, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 20 years ago, Bert and John Jacobs co-founded The Life is Good Company, a positive lifestyle brand dedicated to spreading the power of optimism and supporting kids in need. Early on, they were inspired by letters and emails they received from people embracing the power of optimism during times of great adversity.
John Jacobs joined us to share their story and talk about their campaign to honor everyday people that inspire optimism:
"We always loved art and started designing and selling T-shirts up and down the East Coast--living out of a van, eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and working hard for years before finding success."
"Each one of us has a choice every day — to focus our energy on obstacles or opportunities. We can dwell on what's wrong in our lives and the world, or we can build on what's right. Whatever we choose to focus on grows."
"We wanted to share our story and the inspiring stories we have heard along the way."
The Life is Good Book is the ultimate guide for embracing and growing the good in your life. The Heroes of Optimism campaign celebrates optimists who have inspired others to focus on the good and made a difference in the world
Now through August 3rd, Life Is Good wants you to tell them about someone in your life who inspires you to focus on the good.

When you honor your hero, Life is Good will donate $1 to support childcare professionals who are heroes of optimism for kids in need. Stories will be collected and shared on lifeisgood.com and across social channels.
