Life is not the way it’s suppose to be.
It is the way it is.
The way you cope with it is what
makes the difference.

I spoke to a real gem this week: Keith Taylor, the creator of Modest
Needs, called to thank us for our donations! It turns out that many of you
included more than $5 in your envelope, so we raised over $2000! He
was very appreciative (Read for yourself! He posted some great
comments in the news section of his website:
Furthermore, I have received emails from several folks who applied for
assistance from Modest Needs and they were all so heartwarming! Even
people who were unable to receive assistance took the time to thank us
for our help!
I remain deeply humbled that so many of you took time to participate in
what has to be the coolest ripple we have yet created. I am wondering if
we should try to highlight something like this every quarter? Keep your
eyes/ears open for other individuals or organizations who are creating
ripples in unique ways and let me know what you find!
In the meantime, spend a few moments this week creating some
awesome possibilities out of difficult circumstances you currently face.
Peace to you,
