A community of ideas to celebrate, nuture, and protect our planet for generations to come
My husband and I had the privilege of visiting the “city of brotherly love” for a national gathering on the crucial role of justice in the world. It was one of our Christmas gifts… so much better than a sweater! We discussed the necessity of the global North to recognize the pressing needs of the global South through partnership and collaboration and also to pay attention to the injustices in our own neighborhoods through issues of immigration, food security, criminalization and education. Recognizing the value present in each individual, and our equality is the basic foundational understanding, that if fully realized, would produce a fight in each of us for the rights of others.
It’s definitely a lot to take in, even just this small glimpse of the struggles that the precious people of our world face, but the hope is that organizations like these are working to create change, and the opportunity is that you too can be a part of it!
Find the issue that keeps you awake at night, that you can’t take one more minute of, and get involved, tell friends, build support and maybe even FORGO on behalf of others. Sacrifice is not easy, but I’ve found the more you give, the less you need, and the happier you become!
Here’s a quick video about the idea of forgoing small things in our everyday life and utilizing it to make BIG IMPACT!
