Happy Soul Food Friday!
Most of Our Problems are the Result of Wrong Identification of Self.
Here’s to right identification as we strive for a “we not me” narrative and rightly understand ourselves…
- Redefine the Future
- Acquaint Yourself with the Real Rules of Life
- Play a Pivotal Role in Foster Care
- Stay in the Flow
- Support Social Mobility, Research and Service
- Stop Trying to Delight
The Future is in Our Hands:
Uncertain about the future? This should help…
The Real Rules of Life:
My dear friend, Dr. Ken Druck has earned countless accolades as an author, speaker and international authority on resilience and healing after loss. A true pioneer in psychology, where he earned his doctorate, Ken is the recipient of many honors and awards, including “Distinguished Contribution to Psychology,” “Family Advocate of the Year” and “Visionary Leadership.”
Ken’s work with families after tragedies and disasters like 9-11, Columbine, Boston and Hurricane Katrina has also been recognized for his contributions. With the current crisis in Korea, his reach and contribution extend worldwide, and we are grateful to have him as one of our presenters at the American Marketing Association Cause Conference in San Diego in May…
The Korean edition of “The Real Rules of Life” is now being sent to the families who lost loved ones in the South Korea Ferry Disaster

May is National Foster Care Month:
May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize the role each of us plays in the lives of children and youth in foster care. Voices for Children provides more than one-third of local foster children with the support of a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). But, there are many more who still need a CASA to advocate on their behalf—in the courtroom, classroom, and community—to ensure their needs are met.
We are seeking companies who would be willing to promote this unique volunteer opportunity to their employees.
There is no experience necessary to become a CASA volunteer. Voices for Children provides all the training volunteers need and matches each CASA with a staff member, who works with them on their case. Voices for Children is the only nonprofit organization in San Diego County designated by the Court to recruit, train, and lead CASA volunteers.
We have made it easy to spread the word about your company’s commitment to serving San Diego County’s foster youth.
Our new online resources include templates for newsletters and social media and flyers to hang or email. These resourcescan be downloaded to get involved and promote volunteer opportunities to your employees and customers: http://www.speakupnow.org/business-templates/. (The entire Speak Up Toolkit, geared toward both organizations and individuals, is accessible here: http://www.speakupnow.org/toolkit/.)
We believe that every child deserves a safe and permanent home, and know that you do, too. Please join us in Speaking Up for foster youth. If you would like to request hardcopies of any of our flyers or brochures or would like to book a speaker for a presentation at a staff meeting or lunch-and-learn session, please let me know. I welcome questions and other ideas you may have on how our organizations can work together.
Stay in the Flow:
If you are in the western US, you know we have been experiencing a strong offshore air flow—very odd for late April.

Try to please everyone, and end up pleasing No one!
Stop trying to delight your customers…
Thanks this week go to Heather J, Ken D, Sarah A, Charles S, and everyone at UC San Diego that is focused on helping the next generation with a quality education!
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited.
Imagination encircles the world.”
