Dear world

Call me a little too optimistic, but I am excited for where the world is going. There is so much beauty, positivity, light, and people who WANT to make our world a better place.

Are there a few setbacks? Well, sure. But we need a couple of setbacks to reassess how we’ve been living, how we want to go forward and how to make changes for the better. Remember what I said about change?

Change is never comfortable and sometimes requires us to go through a pile of our own shit in order to truly see how we can do things differently, but it’s necessary!

Here’s what I know to be true, regardless of where you’re currently sitting in the reality of our world, YOU have the power to contribute greatly, significantly and positively whether you think so or not. In fact, YOU ARE the state of our world. WHAT?

Oh yes babe who you are, what you believe, how you walk out into the world, your thoughts, actions and how you speak all create the reality of our world. My only hope is that from this day forward we choose to NOT contribute to the toxicity of our environment and choose to spread seeds of love, connection, and understanding while contributing to a grander vision.

Everyone, whether you agree with them or not, wants what’s best for the ones they love. It may not always come out in the way you understand but it’s true… So let’s start there, and add a little respect to the mix.

Remember this, the need to attack another is an ultimate sign of FEAR and fear isn’t going to do anything but make us drift into the abyss of our own irrational beliefs. Why am I saying all this well… because I think we all need it and could use a little “check in” at times…

But another reason is because I think together we can really shift our focus and promote the good we want to see in the world with ACTION, and this year Andrew and I decided to make it our priority to contribute to a few causes we believe are doing just that and we’d LOVE for you to be apart of it!

WHAT WE WILL BE DOING...

We are ready to match dollar for dollar for any amount given to the charities we select each month. We are committed to giving $300K in total contribution by years end so with your contributions that will be a total of $600K (US) going to changing the world! That’s $25,000p/mo from us but with your help that would be a significant $50,000 a month going to the best organizations.

This amount may sound too significant but it really isn’t. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your $5, $10, $20 or even $100. It goes a long way babe and plus we will be matching every dollar you give so double the power!

If you have a charity you love and would like to be considered as one of our picks next month, please email us at [email protected]!

MARCH CHARITIES

Charity Water

charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. You can track directly where every dollar you give goes which is really cool!

tony robbins

Tony Robbins is a personal hero of ours and I have absolute trust in his integrity. The Anthony Robbins Foundation is a non-profit organization created to empower individuals and organizations to make a significant difference in the quality of life for people often forgotten – youth, homeless, prisoners, elderly and disabled. Tony’s mission in life is to free people from their own self-imposed shackles and this charity is an extension of his mission.

Pencils of promise

Pencils of promise create schools, programs, and global communities around the common goal of education for all. They’ve built and are operating 380 schools in the places that need them the most. I believe there is nothing more empowering to individuals than education.
