Expanding Ripples – Call for Submissions

Expanding Ripples – Call for Submissions

The social and environmental issues we are facing these days can feel incredibly overwhelming, big and unchangeable, despite our continued work to affect positive change in our own lives.

This feature highlights individuals and organizations who are working for positive change…taking small (and large) steps to create positive change for our environment and in our communities. I firmly believe that passion and action are priceless and that one person can inspire countless others…just like the expanding ripples in a pond are caused by a single disturbance.

Do you know of an individual, small business or small organization that has inspired you and you think deserves to be featured for the change they are affecting on the world around them?  Have you worked hard in your professional or personal life to affect positive change and would like to be featured?  If so, please email me at trinityvision3(at)gmail(dot)com with the answers to the below questions or comment below with any ideas or suggestions!

Examples of past features:
Fed By Threads
The Itty Bitty Book Company
Eco Footprint
Balloons Blow

by Paulo Coelho


Even if you were to study your own life in detail and relive each moment that you suffered, sweated and smiled beneath the sun, you would still never know exactly when you had been useful to someone else.
A life is never useless. Each soul that came down to Earth is here for a reason.
The people who really help others are not trying to be useful, but are simply leading a useful life.
They rarely give advice, but serve as an example.
Do one thing: live the life you always wanted to live.
