"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."
~ Betsy Seeton
"I fully intended to only read this article from SightSavers.org and then sadly delete it and go onto the next news story. But something happened. I put myself in their place. I thought about facing blindness. I thought about how it’s preventable. And then I took their plea for money to heart and chose to give $32 so that 4 people could receive sight saving surgery today." Betsy Seeton
Sightsavers is an international nonprofit working in some of the poorest countries in the world to restore the sight of blind people, provide medical care to prevent blindness, and promote equality of opportunity for disabled people.
"Every five minutes a person loses their sight, yet the majority of blindness could be prevented if health care was available to all. With our partners we save sight and prevent people going blind."
(This is not an advertisement. I make no money from sightsavers.org I truly am telling you about this great organization. I apologize for the other ads sprinkled in. I just started adding ads to see if I can cover any of my expenses. I've done this website for free for three years.)
Being healthy is key in life. Take care of your mind, body and spirit.

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.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."

"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."
