Journeys for Good features original documentary content from volunteer travel experiences around the world. Produced by husband and wife production team Steve and Joanie Wynn through their Seattle-based production company Bayside Entertainment, the programs originally aired on public television, garnering multiple Emmy and Telly awards. Now, the content is available On-Demand on Ignyte TV, a channel which recently launched on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Internet TV. The channel is cause-driven and educational, connecting its audience to social and environmental issues as well as introducing ethical brands and products to consumers.
Two programs are currently airing. Journeys for Good: Tanzania tells the story of a group of female travelers who climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and then refurbish classrooms at a school for AIDS orphans outside of Dar Es Salaam.
Journeys for Good:Cambodia follows a diverse group of volunteers who travel to Siem Reap to build wheelchairs for local landmine victims. In addition to the half-hour documentaries, additional short webisodic content is also available for viewing.
“The partnership with IgnyteTV is very exciting for us,” said Joanie Burton Wynn, Executive Producer of Journeys for Good. “It gives us a new home for our inspirational stories about global volunteerism and makes us a part of a larger community dedicated to positive human contributions to our planet,”
Brigitte Perreault, Founder & CEO of Ignyte TV concurred, “The volunteer trips that Journeys for Good profiles show how everyday heroes can give back to communities in need around the world. It shows the commonality we share as humans and stokes a sense of global citizenry that is so critical in these challenging times for our planet. The stories are heartfelt and inspiring and a wonderful addition to the programs on Ignyte TV”
The Wynns continue their commitment to “Journeys for Good” and are now in development on a new documentary featuring young people from “Gen Z” traveling to give back and develop their sense of global citizenship. Their voluntour partner for this documentary is Globe Aware.
