Hundredgivers is a collaborative effort to support and accelerate initiatives, individuals and organizations that are improving communities, giving back, and regenerating the planet. We are all givers in our own way, longing for human connection, community wellbeing and a sustainable planet.
Hundredgivers is an affirmation that we all desire healthy, thriving communities and a sustainable environment. This is not wishful thinking, but a dynamic and practical belief that is actualizing with each positive, intentional moment.
As Louis Hay said, affirmations are a way to ...
For many, the concept of family has expanded beyond bloodlines to include friends, neighbors, colleagues, and others in the greater community. With so many lives experiencing traumatic events due to hurricanes, floods, wildfires and other disasters, now is a good time to remember the wise words of Louise Hay: "We are all family, and the planet is our home."
For those who are experiencing traumatic events, a simple act of kindness, respectful listening and compassion from others can bring hope.
Ask a few trauma-informed individuals. I just spent two days at a conference ...
To Scott Glasgow, founder of FinMango, financial education and mangos go together really well. As he explained during a recent conversation, there’s a lot of distress around money. People tend to tune out when the topic of money comes up. Combining this colorful fruit with financial education is a way to lighten up a serious topic and bring a little fun to money management.
Glasgow believes that teaching people to be financially savvy is a gift that will keep on giving throughout their lives.
After graduating with a Masters in Financial Management, Glasgow decided that ...
The past year has seen some startling setbacks for the United States in terms of climate action, from the rollback of EPA regulations to the decision to pull us out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In spite of these actions, we can look to grassroots efforts for inspiration and tools to help us move toward the sustainable future we want. Drawdown is one such toolset.
Before I talk about Drawdown, I'd like to note in particular that pulling the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement may prove to be the most useful decision Donald Trump has ever made.
Don't get ...
Farmers, ranchers, ecologists and community champions are spreading the word. Healthy soil produces more food, retains more water, reduces erosion, and provides better rangelands for animals. Soil is a crucial building block for all natural resources and we need to do a better job of taking care of it.
The idea for healthy soil has been brewing internationally and nationally for some time. In 2016 at the Climate Change Conference (COP22) in Marrakech, 32 nations agreed to the 4 per 1000 initiative calling to increase carbon content in the top 40 cm of their soils by 0.4% ...
In the desert there are secret treasures waiting to be discovered like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Tucked away between mysterious geologic formations and barrel cactus the sunbaked hills tell the secret of desert wildflowers if you listen closely.
It's a best kept secret that only the locals - such as the lizards and crooked-spine Yucca can tell.
A wildflower is "A flower of an uncultivated variety or a flower growing freely without human intervention." By this definition, every plant in the desert should be a wildflower.
How these delicate creatu...
Earth has a gas problem. To many, this is old news. To some, it's confusing news. To a very small minority, it's fake news. To let it sink in a little more it's worth repeating: earth has a greenhouse gas problem.
A good way to learn what this greenhouse gas problem is all about, NASA's Earth Minute video series quickly sums up our planet's predicament. These are worth watching again (and maybe duplicating just in case they mysteriously disappear). Each about a minute long, the Earth Minute videos cover topics from the study of earth to space with the climate in ...
