"Before April 2010 reasons for living were just a handful; not much effort was put into living our lives to the fullest. Every day for us was just that, another day, nothing special." -Agudo Family.
On April 10th, 2010 their views on living life were forever changed when their son, Christopher, made the decision that he no longer had any reason to live and tried to end his life. Living Is So Big started as a campaign. Only a "handful" of reasons were simply not enough. This family was going to take whatever steps were necessary to save their son's life. So, a plea for help went out into cyberspace: "Please give us a reason why our son should want to live. Send us your priceless thought so that we can save his life." People were touched and wanted to help. They started writing in with reasons why they were happy and why they appreciated their lives.
For the Agudo family, living life itself no longer carries just a "handful of reasons". Through the help of strangers, the realization was made that living itself is so big, and life itself should always be appreciated. Today, Jesus (father), Iliana (mother), Christopher (son), Stephen (brother), newcomers Jonathan Marbois-Segall and Will Rivera, and others are touring the United States to reach people with the desire to effect a positive change in their lives. To date, they have traveled over 17,000 miles and have visited 60 cities. They go to high schools, universities, stores, and events spreading the message of Universal Life Appreciation.

It has become easy for us, in this day and age, to focus on the aspects of life that make us feel uncomfortable. It seems we have been conditioned to dwell in feelings of sorrow and despair.
