Philanthropy ~ Giving Back

 

Supporting various environmental charities has been part of
my lifestyle for over 20 years.

As human beings, we are Nature and our whole well-being depends
on the harmonious co-existence with and stewardship of global
healthy, diverse, natural ecosystems, habitats and wildlife.

 

Nature

 

Every choice we make, every day, either benefits many beyond ourselves or doesn’t. We have so much power in our choices, and this is part of being a conscious co-creator. Aside from my everyday choices, I’ve also supported organizations that work diligently to protect and restore our natural environments and biodiversity of countless species, using awareness, compassion, win-win-win solutions, science, law, and educational programs.

Two ways that I’ve offered support for over 2 decades is by donating money and time (through volunteer work). I gave my first charitable donation as a university student, to an organization that protects humpback whales in the Atlantic ocean (the name of my “adopted” humpback whale was Luna). Since then, I’ve donated generously to several dozen different environmental foundations over the years, and have done volunteer work in Canada, Costa Rica and currently in Alaska.

 

I currently provide support to the following 4 organizations, which
you also contribute towards by supporting my work (THANK YOU!).

 
 
Eden-ProjectsThrough Sacred Earth Connection® in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, (beginning in 2017) I’ve committed to making an annual donation from the sales of all “Sacred Possibilities” books to plant 2,500 trees or more every year. Those funds do much more than “just” plant trees: they enable this amazing organization to restore forests, while also providing sustainable employment for impoverished families and communities of Third World countries that promotes responsible long-term stewardship—benefiting countless lives and life forms in the process! Just one tree is an entire ecosystem, who provides food and shelter for countless species; creates breathable oxygen while absorbing global-warming carbon; prevents erosion; and provides wisdom, healing and relationship for our hearts, minds, bodies & spirits. Together, trees also revive deforested environments, promoting beautiful life and a sacred balance, while minimizing the effects of extreme weather and potentially disastrous natural phenomena. Every book purchase contributes towards co-creating “Heaven on Earth”! To date, 2,600 trees have been planted – thank you! 

 

Center for Biological Diversity

Center for Biological Diversity works diligently to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. It does so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive. It has used the Endangered Species Act and other environmental laws to win protection for more than 550 rare animals and plants, as well as 470 million acres of critical habitat. It has been recognized as the most effective conservation organization based in the U.S., with an unparalleled record of legal successes over the past 25 years, with 93% of lawsuits resulting in favorable outcomes for endangered species. It was dubbed “pound for pound, dollar for dollar the most effective conservation organization in the country” by LA Weekly.

 

BirdTLC logoBird TLC is dedicated to conservation, education and the quality care of injured, sick and orphaned wild birds, from sparrows to eagles. Most birds are from the lower U.S. states and countries as far as Central and South America. They migrate to Alaska during the growing season to raise their families. Most injuries are human-inflicted (directly and indirectly). Being of service to these beautiful wild birds is such a joy – every rehabilitated bird released back to Nature is a celebration! Some have permanent injuries and become educational ambassadors like “Hal”, their first educational ambassador. He came in with injuries sustained from the environmentally disastrous Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989. Since then, this beautiful bald eagle has inspired tens of thousands of people in presentations on behalf of his wild counterparts. The incredible work that Bird TLC is committed to, has ripple effects beyond Alaska’s borders. I feel privileged to be a weekly volunteer!

 

Nature ConservancyThe Nature Conservancy‘s mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Founded in 1951, their vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives. They achieve this through the dedicated efforts of their diverse staff, including more than 600 scientists, located in all 50 U.S. states and more than 35 countries; with the help of their many partners, from individuals and governments to local nonprofits and corporations; and by using a non-confrontational, collaborative approach and staying true to their five unique core values: 1) Integrity Beyond Reproach, 2) Respect for People, Communities, and Cultures, 3) Commitment to Diversity, 4) One Conservancy, and 5) Tangible, Lasting Results.
