Playing it Forward

With all the unrest, violence and uncertainty in today's world, how can one person make a difference?

While expressing his and the world community's deepest concolences to the victims' families and the injured survivors, the Prime Minister of Spain resolutely said that we are stronger together standing against such acts.

As with the rest of the world, we offer our most profound condolences and prayers to each one who has been touched by this tragedy. The most urgent need in Barecelona right now is for blood. But here are other ways to help: Barcelona

Trying to understand the hatred that causes one to take the lives of and injure so many innocents can cause us to lose faith in humanity. Yet in our morning inbox was a message of hope and a...  Read More

WE THINK WE'VE GOT IT BAD! This was a mere 80 years ago....

Makes complaining about no cell service, high gasoline prices, not enough cable channels, seem a bit ludicrous. No credit cards to buy what you want, but don't need! These images show what really tough times are like. If you don't know what the Great Depression was, here's the motto: "Use it up -- wear it out",make it do or do without!!!!! This reminds me to be grateful for what I do have..... Start each day with a smile and a prayer ... Then share that feeling with others! 
 

"Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery.   
And Today?

Today is a gift.  That's why we call it the present."

Thank You and Continued Best Wishes to these Entrepreneurs!

Wow! Yesterday we received enough repayments on Kiva Micro Loans to be able to fund another small $25 loan for a dedicated Single Mom, Maria Teresa, in Ecuador (her story is below after the others whose payment helped to fund her loan). Today we got even more exciting notices, so will be able to fund yet another amazing small business person or group, just like us! 

May their businesses keep growing as they keep inspiring so many with their tenacious spirit, determination and creativity!

Knowledge vs Wisdom ~ Calvin Coolidge

 
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.

Thought for the Day ~ To Be Thick-Skinned or Not



The problem with thick skin is that it leaves you impervious to the sharpest of pins. Everything becomes dull. But without that sense of pain, there cannot be that sense of relief. Ultimately, the thickened skin leaves you numb, incapable of feeling the highs and lows of life. It leaves you rough like a rock and just as inanimate.

Maybe Our World Needs to Remember Harmony=Magic

Our world is so troubled, and so many are hurting in too many violent and unkind ways. Maybe that is why Pokemon Go and Reality/Escapism is so wildly and instantly popular, surpassing any app's use ever! 

Seeing a small section of humanity, we find that the Equestria Dolls, humanized versions of their My Little Pony counterparts, are also popular all over the world, among a wide array of cultures and religions. So maybe a review of what each of the key characters' attributes are could help us spread more Kindness, Harmony and Friendship everywhere! These values connect all of humanity and pony pods, too. 



Proceeds from the sale of our Equestria Girls go to an array of charities, many of whom are profiled on our Pinterest Worthy Causes Board.

Some of our favorites are the precious homeless children in the Philippines:
