Who is Changing the Lives of Our Kids?
In the past few years we’ve been witness to many natural disasters from the 2010 7.0 earthquake hit in Haiti, affecting an estimated 3 million people, to the floods of Afghanistan, to Hurricane Katrina and many more. During that time, I created A Mindful Dialogue: A Path Toward Working with Stress, Pain and Difficult Emotions where 100% of the profits go to Save the Children. The book raised a few thousand dollars that I'm hoping benefited many children around the world.
But this isn’t the only thing out there that is available to benefit the children of the world. This post is meant to raise awareness around who and what is out there to help change this world from the ground up, with our children.
In the world of mindfulness, I know many leaders such as Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child, Meg Cowan, Co-founder of Mindful Schools, Amy Saltzman founder of A Still Quiet Place, and even Goldie Hawn is currently making this her life’s purpose. These are all people to check out as leaders trying to help our children become more aware and experience rays of hope in this world.
Perhaps one of these people is you and you don’t even know it. What are the ways you reach out to kids, a smile, a joke, a laugh, a leg up in some way?
