Someone Once Told Me World Tour

Our good friend Mario is off on an adventure of a lifetime and needs YOUR help.

Someone Once Told me is a website full of photos from people of all walks of life holding quotes that “someone once told them”, each with an audio clip explaining the quote. We are all shaped by the things that someone once told us, and Mario wants to hear about it. BarChick got involved, and now he needs YOU too.

This June he is traveling around the world for one year taking as many photographs for SOTM as he can, so get involved. Get thinking, and get your friends too. He also needs help translating where necessary, and of course any offers of sofas / spare rooms for him to crash out at as he goes!

You can submit pictures through the site (only one per person) but get taking them of your mates and upload ‘em, every little helps.  OR check out where he will be hitting on the tour and he could come and get snapping you. Check out his blog for more info.
