Dear 2017... Here we GO!
As part of a vow and dreamvision that is at the basis of my art and life, I am so grateful to have been able to pulse out a record number (for me) of 10%s to special causes and intitiatives around the globe in 2016...and I'm Determined to pump it up megafold in 2017!!. I believe in the accumulating power of all our small positive actions...and so while I'm here on this planet, no matter what, and in whatever small way, I vow to be part of a nourishing rain on as many beautiful endeavors as possible to help them grow. <3 Let there be thousands of us, reaching out to millions- wherever needed. Let us help to nurture the more compassionate future we want to see.
Continuing from where I left off...and with the new energy boost of the New Year...Here are my jottings for the 10% 2017 'Wishlist':
(where I want to donate something from my next art sales and income)...
There are several on here leftover from my wishlist of 2016 and as I get to pulse support to them I'm gradually adding a bunch more of the causes I support Annually plus some brand new ones! The 'Wishlist' is immediately followed (scroll down) by a continually updated list of donations already Made so far this year! I've made most of them hotlinks so please do learn more about any each...and if any of these causes touch your heart, PLEASE Join me and others to help crowdfund and continue to nourish them! "We are the ones we've been waiting for." <3
