Let’s make GOOD HAPPEN in 2011!
Have you heard the internet buzz? People keep talking about how 2011 is the year for social good. With the popularity of social media sites like Jumo teaming up with Facebook, and the emergence of non-profits in the social mediasphere, it is becoming fun and easy to stay up-to-date with your favorite do-gooders on the world wide web. I found this really cool blog entry that delves deeper into this idea.
The good doesn’t end there! Have you heard about Ilchi Lee’s 2,011 prayers for peace in 2011? Ilchi Lee, founder of Dahn Yoga and holistic health teacher, along with 2,010 other people will be praying for peace in 13 different languages! Ilchi Lee originally wrote this prayer in 2000 for the United Nations Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders. He has chosen to reignite this prayer to reaffirm our commitment as a society to peace. Each person can sign onto Ilchi Lee’s site, download the pdf’s for the prayers, and read it in whatever way they choose– whether that be silently, or with friends and family. To sign the pledge, and be a part of this event, click here.
I encourage you, dear friends, to go out into the world and make one small gesture to help live peace and make good happen in 2011. Tell us what you are doing to make good happen, and tell us what you’d like us to do to help you make good happen. “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
From all of us at CLP, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Peace Grl Out!
