Founder’s Message

As the founder of MetroMarks it was my intention from the start for it to develop into and be a forum or platform..yes for local guides and blogs and resources in each city…but also a platform or forum, that from time to time could be used to draw attention to inspiring things and projects that people are doing to make life better for others or the community - whether that be for the Environment, Haiti, Kids or World Health Issues. So look forward to some inspiring content and things that people are doing for others on our site. If you know of a group or individual that is making big things happen, inspiring others and making lives and the community Better! Please let us know!
