Denis Hayes-coordinator of the first Earth Day-Part 1

I journeyed north to Seattle in January to meet with Denis Hayes, the coordinator of the first Earth Day. He is now President of the Bullitt Foundation. Denis grew up in Camas, WA and I wanted to talk to Denis about his experience coordinating that first Earth Day back in 1970. How did it happen? What did he learn? How did this opportunity present itself? Listen in as Denis shares his story and how you need to grab the brass ring, when the ring is there. I hope this interview inspires you to take chances, look outside the box and think of what YOU can do to make a difference somewhere in the world. This is part 1 of a 6 part series.
Special thanks to Double Pixel Studios for their amazing video and edit work.

Suicide Awareness – A story of hope for our community

Sheryl and her husband lost their son in August of 2016 to suicide. While processing through their grief, they started a movement called Our City Cares. You may have noticed the signs of hope posted around our community. Don’t Give Up. You Are Not Alone. Your Life Matters. Your Mistakes Don’t Define You. There is Hope. Comparison is the thief of Joy. There are also handouts with crisis hotline information and support locations at the schools for students in need. Please listen to Sheryl’s story and think how YOU can be an ambassador of hope in our community for someone struggling. We are all connected. Thank you.
