Nourish the heart & soul while making a difference
While many of us have been blessed to experience our Universe as one of abundance, far too many live a life fraught with deprivation, degradation, and disease. With the core of my own mission lying in women’s health education, I have come to believe that creating and maintaining whole health and stability in the body requires a sound capacity to both give and receive.
From there it is a simple step to extrapolate this holistic health give-and-take philosophy to a universal level. There is simply nothing that nourishes the heart and soul more completely than giving to a cause in which you wholeheartedly believe, and to believe that you can truly make a difference.
With that being said, I have discovered—as have many of you—that all is not as it seems in the world of charitable giving. For this reason I have updated my charitable giving recommendations. You may notice that a vast majority of the charities I recommended in the past are no longer on this page. When you know better, you do better!

[…] The endorsement I’m sharing with you this week came as a very pleasant surprise.
