The problem with not having a goal is you spend your
whole life running up and down the field and never scoring.

Greatness is not in where we stand,
but in what direction we are moving.

We must sail sometimes with the wind,
and sometimes against it,
but sail we must,
and not drift or lie at anchor.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes

The quotes this week stress the importance of having
a clear sense of direction. Well, The Ripples Project
needs your help in clarifying WHO WE ARE and
WHAT WE DO!

A few years ago a handful of really cool people helped
define the original mission of The Ripples Project:
to inspire and reward small waves of kindness.
But in our new site this fall, we need a better blurb!
We need to find a short, snappy sentence or phrase
that quickly communicates who we are and what we’re
trying to motivate people to do. So, how do you describe
The Ripples Project when you’re telling someone about it?

We want a brief “blurb” that gets at the idea across
that small acts of kindness keep on going, AND that kind acts
come back to you! Whether you think of this as a mission,
a slogan, or a tagline, send your best blurb to
BetterBlurb@TheRipplesProject.org
mailto:BetterBlurb@TheRipplesProject.org
this week and we’ll pick the best to get some more feedback.
The creator of the best “blurb” will get a mountain of
Ripples Goodies and our eternal gratitude.

Peace,
Paul

p.s. Last week was a slower week in sales, so help if you can!
We have now raised $5,600 of the $12,000 we need for
