Our upcoming book and docuseries, Ignite Humanity, is for those with a powerful message to share, a message you want to both write and speak about. We’re searching around the world for those who look to the future and want to Ignite the planet. This book and docuseries will catalog the diverse and impactful insights each one of us has on humanity and the light we can bring into the world.
Ignite Humanity is about connection. How we connect with others, how we create impact, and how we Ignite the world! We want human beings like you who understand how we can create an amazing world that puts people first.
On a collective scale, it is our vision to create a better future and a better world for every human on the planet.
Everything that's been going on in the world in the last few years has not allowed us to live to our fullest potential. We're at a point in our lives where we need to create a beacon of hope for humanity. We need to show everyone that positive change can and is happening on a global scale. We need to band together to create a movement to show people that humanity has to prevail and can prevail. We want to come together, grow, and Ignite the world with you.
We believe that hope and change happen through understanding, connecting, and relating to one another's authentic stories. Sharing a person's Ignite Moment, that pivotal moment that sets them on a path to discovering a greater side of themself will be the medicine of the planet. Ignite creates that human interconnectedness through multimedia storytelling. We want every person, community, country, and all of humanity to feel Ignited and inspired.
If every single person shares their Ignite Moment, we can change the trajectory of humanity. We can create an entirely new world for each and every one of us. That is what Ignite Humanity will do. This project is bringing humanity together, uplifting people globally, and Igniting us all in a way that includes everyone on our quest for a better future.
Igniting humanity has always been an integral part of Ignite’s mission and core values, but the conception of this new book program really began on the back of a tandem bike in the summer of 2020.
Ignite’s founder and CEO JB Owen and CTO Peter Giesin decided they wanted to get up and do something amazing after being stuck in their home throughout the uncertain early months of 2020. They decided to cycle from Red Deer, Alberta all the way to Ottawa, Ontario to raise money for charity and show the world that any dream was possible. In 2021, they did it again, spending their summer cycling up the Top of the World highway to the Yukon. In total, they’ve cycled over 11,000km.
As they cycled, JB and Peter realized that the moments that truly stuck with them were the moments of genuine, wonderful connection with the kind people they met on their travels. Despite the ravages of Covid, they continued to meet people who, after meeting them for only a few minutes, invited them in for dinner, offered them help, told them great places to go, and formed an enduring friendship with them. Many of these complete strangers showed them phenomenal support, unwavering encouragement, and beautiful hidden wonders with an open heart. Being around such amazing individuals from all walks of life showed just how incredible the human spirit is and how precious human connection is.
Ignite Humanity was born out of a desire to showcase the bright light that is in humanity and remind us that we can come together and make a better global future for all.
“Humanity is incredible and I see that every single time I get up and go out into the world. Those small moments of connection are powerful. You get to meet people and see how amazing they are. What might seem like a coincidental meeting is actually the universe putting that person on your path for a reason.”
Stories are at the core of our world. They are the tools we have used for thousands of years to connect with each other and to awaken hearts and minds. They are the ignition point to worldwide change, growth, and enlightenment. Stories go beyond words, transforming the hearts and minds of all who hear or read them.
The Ignite Humanity book will be a collection of stories encompassing the transformative thoughts and ideas each author has used to Ignite their own life and others. This compilation book will have a chapter dedicated to each inspiring story, told in the authors’ own words, containing a powerful, innovative message for Igniting lives. One of those authors could be you!
People need to read stories of hope, perseverance, and innovation. Stories bring us together, connect us, and share ideas with the power to change the world. They transcend race, color, and creed. When you read a story that moves your heart to believe that you can create positive change on this planet, that moves the needle forward on humanity.
Ignite Humanity will center around each author’s Ignite Moment. An Ignite Moment is that pivotal, eye-opening realization you experience in your life that sets you on a brand new path towards transformation. It can come to you through a challenge or hardship, a new experience for growth, or an unexpected change in your life’s plans. From some of the darkest moments of our lives, inspiration and a deep realization of how to move forward and create impact can blossom.
They don’t change who you are, they lead you toward who you were always meant to be. If you feel a higher calling to your purpose, and that purpose uplifts humanity on a major scale, Ignite Humanity wants to honor your story and share it with the world. You don’t have to be a writer, you just have to have a story and message you know humanity needs to hear.
"We need to restore love and faith for humanity by connecting with as many people as possible. I want to showcase the many people who are igniting humanity and hear their Ignite Moments that show that if they can do it, so can you!”

The Ignite Humanity documentary and docuseries is set to film summer 2022, as JB and Peter embark on their latest cross-Canada cycling trip— 8600km from Vancouver to Newfoundland! The series will feature individuals on screen sharing their powerful Ignite Moments, as well as their perseverance, tenacity, and strength. They will be the moments that transform them and help them step into something bigger and better in their life. We will share pivotal moments in a pivotal way, and we want you to be part of that!
Virtually and in person, the Ignite Humanity project will feature every author writing a chapter in the book, along with influential celebrities and powerful change-makers. We’re excited to share that world renowned motivational speaker Les Brown has already committed to appearing in the series, as has Michael E. Gerber, small business guru and author of the iconic book, The E-Myth. The entire project will be an innovative look at how great minds are creating radical, positive change in their communities and the world at large.
Let us tell your powerful moment. Join a group of people who are moving the needle forward on humanity and are making a difference. Let us show how you are changing lives, starting projects for the greater good, redefining industries, building sustainable ways of living, and making change wherever you go. We want you if you are changing lives, inspiring others, making a difference, and helping the planet.
Most importantly, we want someone with a story to share about why what they do is important and how it’s impacting the world on a global scale. We want to know the Ignite Moment behind the incredible life you have chosen to live. Your story matters and what you have gone through could be exactly what another person needs to hear.
Ignite is looking for innovators, leaders, and global change-makers who will add depth and insight to this important initiative by sharing how they are impacting the planet in a positive way. This project is for those individuals who are moving the needle of humanity forward in a way that benefits others. We believe that the more we can spread the message of ways to Ignite Humanity, the more we can shift the paradigm and create a better Humanity for All.
The people we meet along our journeys can change our lives. When those relationships bloom, it reminds us of the connection every human on this planet has with one another. If you feel that connection and want to unite the hearts of people everywhere, we want to hear from you.
