Three Things Tuesday...

The organizations changing the world:

#1: Lafarge Ecosystems:

I have been watching the blog for a while now. Something about hearing the continuing stories of animals with names appeals to the inner child in me. And, well, tiny monkeys are just the most awesome Morning Starter (okay, other than, ahem....weasles). Take a look at this organization and it's mission. Outstanding work. Can you help? Sure. Shoot 'em an email to tell them how cute Owen and Mzee are. Then ask them how you can make a difference.

#2 Heifer Project:

This is well worth a gander, folks. If you don't already know of this organization, you *should* go look. Really now. I send out bee hives every holiday season. Sometimes when I am feeling rather Moo-ish I help pay for a cow. Sustain Thyself is the message here. Give them fish and they eat for a day. Teach them to fish they can live a lifetime. A larger percent of what you send gets where you want it to go with these folks. No more skimming money for vacations for the dude in the copy room. If you don't buy RED (see previous post) at least buy something that will pay forward for a long time.

#3: Wisdom Leadership:

Wisdom Leadership

I have always believed that feminine energy is creative and protective in ways that male energy is not. Both are important. Balance in Everything. Sure. But...I firmly believe that companies (okay, the WORLD at large) would do themselves a huge service by searching for, attracting and sustaining a workforce of leaders who are women. Take a peek. See what you think. At the very least, if we *are* going to hell in a handbasket, it will be a *pretty* one.
