Happenstance is built on the true stories of real people – from people like you. Each season we’ll journey through the human experience by exploring different types of connections.
We want to hear the funny, unique and intriguing tales about the one person met that ultimately changed your life.
Some of the stories we are working on for upcoming seasons are:
Teachers & Students
Do you have a story to rival the legend of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle? Whether you’re a student inspired by their teacher to reach a whole new level of greatness or a teacher whose life was unexpectedly altered by an awe-inspiring student, we want to hear about it.
Long Distance Relationships
Making it work in the same city is hard enough – but what about on separate continents? We want to hear your story. How do people that are divided by ocean come together – and stay together?
Random Acts of Kindness
Whether it’s a few extra quarters left behind at the laundry mat or a fresh batch of warm cookies brought to the new neighbors – even the littlest act of kindness has the potential to change someone’s life forever. We’d love to hear these stories from both perspectives, especially if it sparked a longer-lasting friendship or relationship.
It was a sudden accident that changed your life forever. Or perhaps you were challenged with a disability from day one. The will to be great in the face of adversity and accomplish the unimaginable isn’t reserved for the movies. Everyday, people are emerging victorious against the relief of simply giving up. Have you made a remarkable recovery or motivated someone else to? We’d love to hear your story.
Trying times create everlasting connections. Did you serve in the military and come out with a life-long friend? Was there a specific event that cemented your bond? Whether you helped a fellow soldier get through a rough time or were the one on the receiving end of the aid, we’d love to hear about it.
