I Challenge You to Listen to the First Seven Minutes of this Podcast and Not Get Hooked into Listening to the Whole Thing:
Susan Schaller believes that the best idea she ever had in her life had to do with an isolated young man she met one day at a community college.

It’s National Preparedness Month: Let’s Be Prepared!
Is there an earthquake fault near your home, your workplace or your child’s school? Or perhaps you live or work in a floodplain, high-risk wildfire area or a tsunami inundation zone.

OES write-up here:  The last portion of the story has vital tools on emergency preparedness as well.

Are You Up for the 30 Day Compassion IT Challenge!



Hola! I wanted to send one more reminder about our upcoming 30-Day Compassion It Challenge. By making compassion a priority each day, you will no doubt experience an unforgettable month.

Like many, you may be frustrated by or even afraid of what’s happening in the world today. Heartbreaking headlines of climate change, injustices, and civil unrest can create feelings of helplessness, sadness and anger.

We each have the opportunity to create change in our world through our individual actions. Now is the time for compassion, and it’s up to you and me.

I hope you’ll sign up for our free 30-Day Compassion It Challenge. Please invite your classrooms, co-workers, friends and family members.

Learn more on our Facebook event page. Please use that page to invite others!

THANK YOU for making our world better.

With enthusiasm,
Sara Schairer
