As part of a vision and a vow that is at the heart of my art and life (the 10%Club)....since 2002...I try to continuously channel 10% of what comes to me back out into the world to nurture positive projects that move me and help others. Microphilanthropy. Not huge amounts...but small amounts that make a difference in the big picture..given with love and hope...as often and widely as possible.
2014 turned out to be my best year so far in being able to send out to so many of my favorites and lots of new ones too. Here is the list of organizations and initiatives I was able to pulse out a bit of nourishment to in 2014:
