Amplify Authenticity : Multiply Mission

Amplify Authenticity : Multiply Mission

We founded Athentikos in 2008 as a way to give back to Guatemala – the birth country of our adopted sons.

We produced Reparando as a way to say “thank you” for our sons, not realizing the impact that story would have on people around the world. Since its release in 2010, Reparando has inspired audiences to generously give hundreds of thousands of dollars and volunteer their time to mission organizations serving in Guatemala. To be transparent … we didn’t see that coming, but we’re grateful God is using the story in ways we never could have dreamed. Over the last five years, we’ve been able to hone in on our unique vision and calling.

There are a lot of organizations telling stories, but we focus our stories on authenticity, because authenticity invites others to join in the greater story. Authenticity acknowledges both strengths AND weaknesses, defining limitations and reinforcing the need for true community – diversity working together.

We wanted to make a difference in marginalized communities around the world, but quickly realized we aren’t doctors, lawyers, or engineers – we’re creatives. So we decided to authentically be ourselves and use creativity to make a difference, believing that stories would inspire other people with diverse strengths to respond. Guess what … it does.

Among others, Doctors, lawyers, and engineers have responded to Reparando by giving their time, talents, and treasure.

The response has been so overwhelming, that we’ve decided to clarify our mission and vision:

Athentikos leverages the art of story to amplify authenticity and multiply mission.

Amplifying Authenticity multiplies mission by inspiring audiences to give their time, talents, and treasure, because we all want to be part of something greater than ourselves.

We’ve produced a new video bumper that highlights the mission of Athentikos.

When we’re authentic to our identity, our origin is unquestionable.
