Kindness & Generosity

Give because you can, because it feels good.  Regardless of how you choose to provide joy, relief, comfort or safety for something or someone outside of yourself, it all matters.  What goes around comes around.  Poor mental wellness and behavioral patterns often result in destructive situations and suffering for a great many things and people around the world. 


"Out of sight, out of mind," does not eliminate reality from existing.  Even if all you can do is share information for others to see, knowledge is power; depending on how we use it.  It only takes one person and one great act to make a difference in the lives of others.



Thank you,

"Find an Animal in Need and Donate to their WISHLIST."

I am a huge advocate for animals and those facilities that care for critters.  "Hurt humans frequently tend to hurt other things and people as part of their coping mechanisms and or pleasure stimulus or release."  It's up to those of us who care about the wellness of all creatures, to support those who cannot speak for themselves. 


CUDDLY is one of my favorite animal advocacy groups helping to support some of the worst cases of animal neglect and abuse currently taking place.  Everyone involved with CUDDLY, the care they provide and the treatment facilities they support, deserve HUGE kudos.  The animal abuse cases that these earth angels deal with daily, are horrific. 


Please consider becoming an advocate yourself, in whatever capacity you can, to help contribute to an absolutely worthwhile cause.  It genuinely matters in such a kind way.

Community Against Violence


Stray Hearts Animal Shelter


With local animal shelters busting at the seams in multiple cities around the world, it's important now, more than ever before, to make time to volunteer, to financially lend a hand where we can, to spread the word and to help create programs to spay/neuter/provide shots & necessary treatments, while also donating quality food as often as possible.  These actions help alleviate the mental and emotional stress that these loving facilities and caregivers struggle to provide. 


Extend your compassion even further, volunteer to foster or walk some of these remarkably sweet animals.  Acts of kindness are just one generous thing we can all immediately do to make a difference within our communities. 


Not only do acts of kindness improve our own positive dopamine and serotonin production, but such kindness has the capacity to help rehabilitate the mind of those individuals who have also been abused.  "Share trust, give the gift that continues to give."  Stray Hearts offers hope to great people and to an entire community of struggling animals.

Climate Reality Project

"There is no Planet B."  This is something I've considered since I was in elementary school.  Learning about Earth Day and the value of synchronized planetary balance, ecosystems and our food system, has been important to me since I was a child.  While I was in college, studying business, biology and environmental science, I remember coming home in tears after learning about the reality of what was taking place with the current decline of the Ogallala Aquifer, North America's largest freshwater aquifer.  Thinking there was nothing my little self could do to make a significant difference in this enormous world, my fear was not being capable of prolonging my chances of reaching my golden years, based on climate change and the rapid decline of water, soil and quality food sources.  In 2016, when the following TED talk originally aired, more stats on currently transpiring issues made headlines.


The importance of paying attention to detail, researching what is currently taking place around the planet, acknowledging more aggressive storms, the extinction of numerous animal species, human mortality rates increasing due to starvation, raging fires and the all-time highs and lows of international temperatures, continues to inspire me to do the work; to do my part to contribute to my global community, regardless of how small or large the contribution.  My mother once told me, "Sweetheart, always remember that you and one million other people feel the exact same way.  If you and those million other people suddenly give up, stop contributing or caring, that's one million and one people who automatically stop making a difference in the world."  I've never forgotten or stopped caring based on that one single conversation.

As a passionate gardener and nurturer of food and life, I am passionate about earth, soil and Mother Earth.  Knowing that North America and the world around us is running out of the very resource that we all depend on to survive as Homo sapiens and living creatures, the one thing necessary to produce food, products and nearly everything living on planet earth, it is up to all of us to continue educating and inspiring others to wake up and to smell the coffee before it literally is too late to reverse what is taking place everywhere around the world. 


It doesn't matter where we're from, what religion or political party we prefer, the color of our skin, whether we have 2 legs or more, having clean water, air and food is essential for all of us.  Without it, we disappear.  Align with those things of importance to you, these things enable us, the planet, and our children with the opportunity to age in healthy ways.
