For those who feel they can't make a difference.

Hello All,

I just recently read a very touching article found in Utne reader. It's about how one young girl made a difference in thousands of peoples lives.

The name is: 'Wishing Well: A Child's Legacy Brings Clean Water' by Viktoria Harrison.

Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.utne.com/realizing-the-vision/wishing-well.aspx?newsletter=1&utm_content=08.10.12+Mind+and+Body&utm_campaign=2012+ENEWS&utm_source=iPost&utm_medium=email

It's about a 9 year old named Rachel who heard that kids her age in Africa didn't have clean water to drink so decided to raise funds for a charity named Water.

She created a page and asked friends and family not to give her presents for her ninth birthday. Instead, she asked them to donate $9 because she was turning 9.

She wanted to raise $300 but only made $220. A month later Rachel died after a car accident.

When the word spread about her death, people all over the world began to donate on her page. A month later it raised $1.2 million dollars.

100% of that money went to the charity's partners in Tigray, Ethiopia and they began water projects for people in need.

On the 1 year anniversary of Rachel's death, they brought her mother to a community in Ethiopia that planned both a memorial service and a celebration of Rachel's life.

60,000 people in more than 100 villages will drink clean water because of Rachel's wish.

This illustrates that our wishes do make a difference, even after we are gone. Our world economy is in a severe depression, but still people found it in their hearts to donate towards this little girls dream.  

Imagine what we could do in a Resource Based Economy. Our dream is important. It is so very important to be able to educate others about our dream, and think of ways to get more people intersted in talking about our movement. 

For the survival of our children and grand-children. For the survival of our race and our planet. For the survival of our cultures and humanity. You can make a difference!  

And if you feel like you are not making a difference, read this article about a little girl who did.
