Hello Dear Ones,
Monday was my birthday and I have been in the b-day contemplation-gratitude-wow-awe-whoa I’m 37-what is this life-omg I feel so loved-kinda zone… and in this space of feeling so grateful and full, I would love to ask your support in something I care about…
If any of my writings, or my book, or my IG posts have touched your heart and if you have a few dollars to spare this week, I would LOVE if you are able to donate to any of these organizations which I am committed to supporting, as a special birthday gift to me.
These are organizations that I love, and have donated time and/or money to, and I would be honored for you to do so as well if you can – and make a b-day wish for me/you/this planet.
If you are like: “Hell no, I don’t have $5 for the Amazon right now!”
Well, I hear you and I love you still! I totally get it.
And if you can do it, open the link, take 3 min, and do it as a prayer for us all!
AND! If you haven’t written me a Bezos-site Amazon review for my BOOK, that would be an amazing b-day offering to me and my heart as a writer. You can do that HERE.
BIG LOVE/THANKS/CARE FROM MY HEART.
1) SEEDING SOVEREIGNTY:
Seeding Sovereignty is an Indigenous-led collective, working to radicalize and disrupt colonized spaces through land, body, and food sovereignty work, community building, and cultural preservation. There are incredible people behind this organization!! I HIGHLY rec donating if you are able! DONATE HERE.
2) THE LOVELAND FOUNDATION:
Loveland Foundation is committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on Black women and girls. Their resources and initiatives are collaborative and they prioritize opportunity, access, validation, and healing. This is Rachel Cargle’s foundation and I have really learned so much from her work. I donate to them monthly!
DONATE TO SUPPORT THE THERAPY FUND HERE.
3) AMAZON WATCH:
Amazon Watch focuses on protecting the rainforest and our climate by supporting Indigenous peoples. If you’re someone who has had a transformation, change, and healing from anything from the Amazon, this is a great place to donate. So much of our world comes from the rainforest, including air, products, and healing!!
FIND OUT MORE AND SUPPORT HERE.
4) CORAZON DE VIDA:
Corazon de Vida provides life changing support for orphaned and abandoned children in Baja. They are on a mission to end child abandonment by breaking the vicious cycles of poverty. If you’ve ever felt lonely, or like you wanted to go home, please donate to support this orphanage in Mexico. They’re really special, and they’re helping to provide a home to children who otherwise don’t have a place to call home.
Thank you so much for being on this journey with me. This journey of healing, awareness, responsibility, and communion on this planet.
And thank you for celebrating my birthday with me in this way!!! Check out some poems/writings on IG from this week HERE.
