 Resiliency and Risk Taking:

In the past week, San Diego Grant Makers held their annual conference with an underlying theme of risk taking and resiliency. These quotes during a plenary session featuring California State Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, and California Endowment Director of Healthy Communities Beatriz Solis, facilitated by San Diego Grant Makers CEO Nancy Jamison really resonated for many of us…

Resiliancy

The Earth’s Prayer to Complement The Lord’s Prayer

It is crazy that I wrote this in 2009 after being inspired on a trip to Europe, yet it seems as timely today as when inspiration struck.

I am guessing Pope Francis would agree with me…

“Leaving an inhabitable planet to future generations is first and foremost, up to us.” —Pope Francis

The Earths Prayer

Invitation | Gala Luncheon | 70th Anniversary of the United Nations | Oct 24, 11-2pm

My friend Bettina Hausmann is the President of the United Nations Association in San Diego.  They are having a really amazing event to celebrate United Nations day on October 24th, 2015 that coincides with the 100 year celebration of Balboa Park, the 70th anniversary of the UN, and the UNA-SD connection with Eleanor Roosevelt, who was instrumental in getting the UNA-SD started 69 years ago. Her grandson will be a featured speaker, which is really cool!

Please attend if possible and equally important if you could broadcast this widely to your networks that would be GREATLY appreciated.  Bettina and her team are rallying the San Diego region to display its global connectedness (see information below and feel free to forward as you see fit).

Thanks this week go to Grant Makers everywhere, Quadruple Bottom Line leaders focused on people, planet, profits and purpose, Bettina H & Alan D, change agents that stand up for the plight of those that can’t, and Larry H for continuing to feed me soul food that I can share with you!
Pay it forward…

Love,

Neville
