4. "My Own Bottle Garden" Passion Project. And so, from my trust-the-journey playbook of "one thing leads to another," this is how the bottle garden project is starting to morph in my life . My teen has volunteered me to make them with women at a homeless shelter, and this gets me thinking . . . (always dangerous).
5. Better World Books. I was recently selected to be a Change Agent with Better World Books, which is the largest online bookseller for good (and a certified B-Corp) that donates book-for-book for every book sold and supports literacy programs close to home and around the world (and never, ever, ever sends one single book to a landfill, where millions currently end up right now). It is currently rolling out its Drop Box Program beyond metro-Atlanta and Indianapolis to include Tampa, St. Pete, Sarasota, Orlando, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale (Florida), Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin (Texas), Raleigh-Durham (North Carolina), Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus (Ohio). If you are within an hour radius of these cities, you really do need to see this .
I expect churches and schools to be lining up on waiting lists for these FREE high-quality, tamper-proof, sensor-monitored drop boxes before long. I love this company, I love what we are doing, I love that we can provide some passive income to support school and church gardens (or whatever your organization's passion projects are), and I'd love to help you get yours. I created this site to give you all the details you need . Contact me here . And congrats to Simpson Elementary in Peachtree Corners, Georgia (the newest city in the United States!) for adding a Better World Books Drop Box to its recycling efforts and planning a big Earth Week book drive around it. Smart!
And so, as Willy Wonka liked to say, "Yes. Good. Off we go!" And as my friend, Kathy, from the food pantry, likes to say, "You can choose to live in the paradigm of abundance."
I choose that.
