Happy New Years!

Dear friends,

Happy New Years! We didn't make our goal... so kickstarter will not charge you and kickstarter will not send us any funds. What is most important is that you sent your kind words and you contributed a little kindness to our pledge drive and we want to take the time to say thank you again.




Even if you are reading this and you didn't help our pledge drive... thanks for taking an interest in what we are doing. You can always learn more at http://www.BlueSkyLink.org

One door closed... means at least 1000 more new doors will open.

We love you all!
Happy New Years everyone! May your dreams come true in the new year! :)

Steph, T and everyone at Love PB.

Photographic Report back of the Mesa, Arizona Meet-up

Dear friends of Olympia Ecovillage!

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY

------------------------------


Dear friends,

I'm including you in this URGENT blog post because we just had a conversation  about the Love, Peace and Beautiful Bike Rides Movement!  WOoOooooo HooOOoooooo

I love to share the good news!

The Urgent news is that we have a kickstarter project that has less than 12 days and Stephanie and I, the project organizers, need everyone's help to forward this email to friends.

Also, I just wanted to send another shout out of appreciation and gratitude to Steph for holding today's amazing Love, Peace and Beautiful Bike Rides multimedia meet-up in Mesa, Arizona!  We're takin' the love movement international!  Join us!  Yeaaaa!

WooOOOOooooo HOOooooooo!

The photos from today's Mesa meet-up are on our blog!

If you want to read our press release and you like what we're doing, please consider sending your friends to this link to our pledge drive, found here http://www.inspirenewmedia.org (which also has our new 1 minute video promo just uploaded today)!

We will be filming up and down the West Coast so this is relevant to many people. 

We have less than 12 days to find a bunch of community super heroes who will give to our pledge drive so we can reach our pledge drive goal before the New Years!  If we don't reach our $4,500.00 pledge goal by New Year's kickstarter will return the funds to our backers and this movement will receive nothing.

Yes, it is true that we are not good at fund raising!  *happy laughter*

Even if you don't forward it to anyone...

...I love ya'all!   ;)

The Love Movement is alive!

Yeeeeeee Haw!

Love for the people,
-T

True Life is lived in kindness: Thank you for your Pledge today.


Dear Elisabeth and Nancy,

Thank you for your Pledge today. We are learning so much about our selves and our audience through this drive. Anyone as bold to use the word Love in their title deserves extra Love! Your kickstarter project is inspirational and encouraging to us! We backed your project, The Loving More Project, as it is, for us in line with the kind of world we love living in!

We are inspired that it is simple to collaborate and spread hope in this way. Please spread the word about our project as well! Just today we placed our press release on our website at www.blueskylink.org

We have only 24 days to raise our goal so we need all the help we can get.
There is a love movement growing strong all over the world and it will take mutual-aid, interdependence and community networking to make these dreams come true!

I held a meet-up yesterday in Seattle for the Love, Peace and Beautiful Bike Rides project and it is always great to connect with other people who are working for what they believe in... much like both of you are doing. So many people think they have no ability to change the world. But each one of us can make a difference.

Keep up the inspiring work you are doing!

Love,
Steph

Building Our Dreams, Like Building Soil, is a Beautiful Thing.

I woke this morning preparing for my youth team to give their culminating presentation of what they have learned about Compost and the Seattle City Waste program. I am excited and energized to see their work in action. 

It is clear to me that as this program ends, our Kick Starter Fundraising is just beginning. We are in the first week of love filled fundraising and I can just feel the glowing celebration when we have raised the funds to accomplish our dreams. 

Compost and Fundraising are similar. It takes a web of life and interdependence for them to work. Both create the new fertile soil from which we nourish ourselves in the future. We take the products of our hard work... the food scraps; the dollars. We mix them with structure leaves, wood chips; a vision, a logic model. From there we add in the life, a hand full of worms and castings, some completed compost; the people carrying the soul of the project. This is the amalgam of life. Here we turn what was once just simple items into soil from which we feed and nourish ourselves; into the experiences which make our lives so special.

Today I am centered in the way things are. Simple, beautiful, and in perfect alignment. This bike ride has already begun and we are excited to be in the web of life that brings it forth. Thank you for your contribution today. Thank you for bringing the evidence of your hard work and putting it toward Love, Peace and Beautiful Bike Rides! 

Love,
Stephanie

Thank you...

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your donation of $5. As our very first donation you have given money and confidence for us that we are on a good path. This project has been a dream for us for a long time now. We are excited to watch it grow and blossom and are so grateful to you and other community members for seeing the vision and believing in the dream! We hope to see you on our Beautiful Bike Ride!

Peace, love, and appreciation

This journey began...

Dear friends,

This journey began before this campaign and grows and is nourished by the love, faith, hope and Charity of all of our supporters. Thank you for your time, your energy, your donations and your support. We are so blessed to be in community with people who see thier every day actions as having profound impacts. The traditions of our ancestors are alive and well in our movements for a better world.

Today I am reminded of thousand year old stories of every day people using their gifts and talents in the service of their communities. Love, Peace, and Beautiful Bike Rides is one such event. It requires each and every one of us to simply be our selves in good ways. Thank you for giving what you can give and helping us achieve the possible with your donation.

Peace,
Steph
