Oh boy, am I fired up! I had a different post planned for today, but this needs to be talked about NOW. Our world leaders, specifically the US and Brazilian presidents, have taken to the internet to mock @gretathunberg as she challenges governments and corporations to do more, to do BETTER, for our planet.
I had an exchange with @teresabaker11 on the subject and she said something so poignant. She said that WE must be the leaders that we seek - and - if we don’t step up to the plate, we’re just as guilty as the big guys throwing schoolyard insults at children.
Guys, I was shook. She’s so right! IF WE WANT BETTER FOR OUR TRAILS, FORESTS, PEAKS, VALLEYS, FLORA, FAUNA, STREAMS, RIVERS, AND OCEANS THEN WE MUST BE THE ONES TO LEAD THE CHARGE. Not later. Not when it’s convenient. Now. And that doesn’t mean you need to take on leadership in some official capacity. You can be a leader *NOW* to your friends, family, and colleagues. Strike up a conversation about an important topic and engage with compassion and kindness. Don’t forget to listen. We need to get back to a place where we can have constructive conversations about these important topics. It’s the only way we’ll make progress. Time to drop the insults and hateful rhetoric.
Today I’m challenging you to take on the role as LEADER. I believe that your voice, your actions, your passion has the power for impact. Let’s lead the way to a healthy planet filled with healthy humans. ❤️
Say hi to one of the most affectionate members of our family, Bhawna Shah.
She is a selfless person with a heart of gold and makes sure that everyone around her keeps smiling.
Inspite of her busy schedule she makes sure to keep herself available whenever the family needs her and has at times left us stunned by the amount of dedication and hardwork she puts in.
This is Team Project Life Force giving you back all the love that you've so freely showered upon us
The holidays are upon us! ‘Tis the season of giving🌲. Thank you to @iidaborgesfit and her Zumba crew for hosting a bath and linen drive. Together, they collected over 200 towels and sheets for Digs with Dignity families - that’s a lot of goodies and a lot of giving. Many thanks!

Some very important and thoughtful ideas to consider for Christmas from @lonijane 🙏
Fruit is the best accessory🍍✨Christmas is getting closer! and Christmas is also a time where there is a lot of 'single-use' waste. Especially when it comes to decorations, tableware and crockery. So look into using fruits, foliage and decorations that you can easily swap and change for many years to come. Use proper reusable plates and bowls and share the washing up with a friend or family member, have a laugh and be merry. Skip the plastic bows and ribbons on the gifts and if you’re thinking that its easier to just buy plastic single use products remind yourself of where it will end up.

Ashutosh Deshmukh (Director : Operations, Aasaraa Foundation) in discussion with Aditi Pate (President - Rotaract Club of Pune Hillside) and team.
RCPHS donated 35 clipboards (writing pads) to "Aasaraa", which was an extended donation from Rendezvous.
These Clipboards will be given to the children of ZP school of Shirkand Mala, Walki. A small village in Ahmednagar District.
There was a discussion on other activities conducted by both these organisations and how we could collaborate to create a bigger impact.
Looking forward to work on upcoming initiatives.

Sayantan, Tarini, Geetakshi and Mukta are Fellows from Teach For India’s 2018 Cohort, in Delhi.
When they walked into their classroom as Fellows, they quickly realised that no matter how great the teacher, or the curriculum- some gaps are just too large to fill. Despite their best efforts, there was always a child that was left behind- simply because they started learning too late. Thus, came Dawn Child- their initiative aimed at helping 0-3 year olds reach their developmental goals on time. Today, they are working tirelessly within their communities, working with the younger siblings of the children in their classrooms, creating learning videos and mapping their studies systematically. Together, they’re working on a new paradigm of educating children.
Like the unlikely heroes of Dawn Child, you can spark ideas that create lasting change. Apply to the Fellowship, Be the Change. Link in bio.

Don't just exist, but live your life fully, with passion and with purpose! Take nothing for granted, appreciate all that you have, love unconditionally, help one another and laugh out loud at least once every single day. 😊😉🤣

This sweet little boy has come such a long way with his trust of humans. He was rescued from halal slaughter, by Jorden of the @dairycalfundergroundrailroad last Spring. He was so shy and nervous around humans, understandably. It’s been so amazing to watch him bloom and see him really loving life with his sheep and goat friends now and even coming up to volunteers and myself everyday wanting love and affection. I even scored a kiss today! I can’t imagine our little sanctuary without our incredible wizard goat. We love you so much Dumbledore.💕
