Why Dear World?
A message from
our founder, R.X. Fogarty

We help organizations build cultures of authenticity, inclusivity, & purpose

Our storytelling method is backed by science and proven across the globe

             01.
Identification
The use of first person narrative is a powerful tool. It connotes a truth and anchors in an authentic perspective.
             02.
Reprocessing
Studies have shown that finding positive meaning in past events links to a wholistic sense of self and great life satisfaction.
             03.
Externalization
Once certain stories are shared, they become foundational. They act as containers for others to operate within while structuring their own stories.
             04.
Preservation
Through audio, videos, still photos and the written word, we preserve stories. Each person's contribution is amplified through technology and authentic artistry.

Our charity, dearworld.org, deploys the brain tattoo method to document the stories of our time.

DearWorld.com donates a portion of our annual profits to fund the production of stories about people at the center of historically significant events or cultural movements.

    I've never seen an exercise break down barriers faster than this one. If you want a group to connect and bond quickly I would highly recommend Dear World.

    Dear World's portraits are part story and part journalism. When you look at a person’s eyes and read their words, a beautiful feeling about what matters overcomes you.
