Welcome! We are gathering all over the world, to share our stories and grow closer together. This is the start of something beautiful. We are so happy you’re here.

Thank you kindly for your patience as we evolve.

Ukraine Now Global Volunteers Gathering

Open hearts — open hearts. If you are willing to share a little bit of yourself, to open up to somebody, even a stranger, it’s remarkable what can happen.

Sometimes I have to laugh in hysteria… sometimes I have to cry in public.

It’s my second time being with you. It’s just beautiful to feel the warmth, the love from everyone here. The beautiful energy, I can feel it through the screen.

We aim to go deep, get inspired and take risks. To listen to others and hear ourselves. To go from being alone, to coming together.

We are the story.

Storytime is the root system of the Village — virtual gatherings where we share, listen to and talk about our stories, inspired by talented, trained hosts. No one has to share, but the vibe is so open and inviting, most do.

The Village Media Platform produces web series, podcasts, playlists, and an ever-growing database of our amazing human story. We create social impact campaigns, like our first, Hearts of Ukraine, where we host Storytime gatherings with a global group around a challenging topic, and turn it into a series of videos, to help inspire and uplift the people of the world… to action!

Share your story. Celebrate our humanity.


When you give, you help bring people together. Donating to The Village through The Children are our Future is as easy and secure as one-click (we also accept cash and checks). You will receive a charitable tax receipt from them on our behalf.


Join our group of passionate Storytime Hosts and change-makers, a global community that aims to inspire and entertain with purpose.


We love partnering with organizations and leaders who are driven to make ours a happier and more connected world.
