Ultimately, your greatest teacher is to live with an open heart.
The world is so empty if one thinks only
of mountains, rivers and cities.
But to know someone here and there
who thinks and feels with us and
who, though distant, is close to us in spirit,
makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.

We found a new friend! The ever-fantastic Leslie, in addition to
quickly filling orders and helping people get signed up for Ripples,
has been searching high and low for websites and other resources to
share with The Ripples Project members. She recently came across an
ultra-cool company called “An Open Heart” and after connecting with
founder Gabriel Fiedler, we have added some of their remarkable
products to our online store!
If you want post-it notes that create ripples of joy or kindness or
love, you MUST see their nifty “giving notes.” They also have some
“good thoughts” magnetic words of inspiration, and a “kindness
inspires kindness” button that you will wear every day! The best
part about all of these goodies is that they are inexpensive yet
allow The Ripples Project to recover the expenses related our website
and email list management. How cool is that?
I DARE you to peek at Gabriel’s goodies:
