Ways to Become Involved to Create Health for Yourself, Your Family and Mother Earth

Even though most people are aware of the issues we face as a planet and a species, they feel overwhelmed about where to start to help make a difference. If everyone does something, it will help ease the burden on Mother Earth. Start at home and in your community. The slogan ‘Think Globally and Act Locally’ is like the ripples in a pond and it does make a difference. As mothers and families see the strides they can make at home, they are more likely to venture out to a broader mission. We are all individuals and are called to put our energies in different places. That is why we are compiling a broad list of resources. Start your own local resource list and share it. Keep connecting with like minds because together we are making a difference.
