I hope that for you today is filled with gratitude. I hope your thoughts are about the gifts of life, love, and joy.
In the U.S. our Thanksgiving season is approaching. In northern hemisphere countries fall is under way. Around the globe 2016 is coming to an end. All of us are appreciating successes during this year and are looking to greater achievements in the New Year.
As one who is fortunate to have been selected for a leadership role in coordinating our worldwide network, Center for Sustainable Change, I have thoughts of how grateful I am for you and your sharing with all of us your life, your energy and your resources. Your gifts are a testament to your gratitude.
CSC wants to be of service to anyone who has a passion for sharing the gift of understanding the Three Principles within their community. Our organization was born from such a passion. We want to support such passions.
I am particularly excited about the aggressive expansion of programs we've planned for 2017 -- programs designed specifically to give confidence and strength to those interested in sharing this gift with others in finding solutions within their own community.
Please visit our website to learn about these new program plans and find out how you can participate:
Our upcoming 4th annual Global Telesummit, "Transforming Community from the Inside Out"
Our online Continuing Education course series in collaboration with West Virginia University, "Resiliency in Teaching: Reviving the Joy"
Our Awakening Community Circles videoconferencing series -- an outgrowth of past "Circles of Support" calls -- a place for 3P followers/practitioners to come together to share stories, create community, and be inspired
Our monthly Awakening Community "Open Mic" videoconferencing events, where we'll discuss issues related to and support for launching 3 Principles initiatives in your community
Our periodic Global Community Leadership Workshops with 4 in-depth sessions on planning, strategies, and resources to bring the Three Principles into your own community work
To carry out our plans, we need your financial support. We -- with you -- are a community. Our success is everyone's success. Success depends on the entire community participating.
We have a goal of $61,000. With early donors we have already raised $17,000. Help us reach this goal by making a one-time or a monthly sustaining gift. You can make your donation online or by mail. CSC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; your donation is tax deductible.
When you donate before the end of 2016, you can double your gift's impact: an anonymous group of donors will MATCH your contribution if you are a new donor, or if you are willing to increase a previous year's donation. Your gift has never had the opportunity to stretch so far to bring the Three Principles into communities around the world -- until now. Please contribute whatever you can today.
Together, we can Transform Lives... to change the World.
