"If we are to teach compassion for all life
in this world, and if we are to carry on
a real campaign against cruelty, and against
the destruction of our environment, we
have to begin with reaching children."

STRAIGHT FROM SAN FRANSISCO & COMPANY
The trafficking of children for sexual, labor and other modes of exploitation is a global epidemic. The need to make a change and do something may be in the hearts of many, but thinking about making a difference doesn't lead to action.
A group of fathers in Rocklin who were moved to do something about this issues, decided to join in the fight to stop child trafficking and enable hundreds of others to do their part to end this horrenddous crimes as well and all starts with a coffee bean.
The men have opened up a coffee shop called Origin Coffee & Tea in Rocklin where all of the profits will go towards organizations working to stop and save children that are caught up in the world of sex trafficking. Melissa and Guy chat with the two founders of Origin Coffee & Tea Chad Salstrom and Mark South about their effforts and what those in the community can do to help, one cup at a time. For more information on Orgin Coffee & Tea go to origincoffee.org.

One of the best places to nurture the kind of change our world needs, is involving, teaching, and inspiring children. FOR ALL THE ANIMALS offers paid positions for young children ages 8 to 18 who can research, investigate and write about animals and nature. We also want young artists, filmmakers and photographers to apply. Children 7 years old and younger can be our interns.
I imagine a better world when what people value has more to do with what they love doing than about what money can buy. Going after your passions and leading a life inspired by them is central to what drives my own life and is something I encourage others to experience.

"By respect for life we become religious in a way that is elementary, profound and alive.
Impart as much as you can of your spiritual being to those who are on the road with you, and
accept as something precious what comes back to you from them."
