My boss is incredibly strong and inspiring. As the NOFA Vermont executive director, Enid has been working tirelessly to spread the love of organic farming and local agriculture for many many years. This winter, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. It doesn't seem to be slowing her down much! She continues her NOFA Vermont work, and even used her column in our latest member newsletter to talk about the healing Power of Love (article attached). Also attached is a picture of her at our Winter Conference with our entire Congressional delegation and Gov. Shumlin.
Warmup Challenge #2
Share something which gives you hope.
Hi there! I'm Young Stanley!
As the Baaahron of Engagement, my challenges are all about sharing your great work with your community! I also host the Calendar of Events. You can earn game points by attending listed events and letting us know how it went!
There are some big, scary things happening in the world. But, they're less frightening when you believe they can be overcome, and taking action is one of the quickest ways to start generating hope. Vermontivate's whole purpose is to inspire and promote positive solutions. By sharing stories, ideas, and tools that give each of us hope, we can make it easier to create a world we'd all like to live in.
- Spend a minute or two thinking about good in the world. (Need help? Check out the Resources)
- Share a photo, video, or story (yours or someone else's) which gives you hope.
Really don't think you can come up with something to share?
Don't despair! We know that it can be hard to be hopeful sometimes. Instead you could complete this Alternative by sharing a story that *would* give you hope. When you've submitted it, you'll be able to see the inspiring things that other players have shared.
Some "Good" things:
- Acts of kindness
- Stories of courage
- Pictures of hope
- A picture of strangers helping each other
- A song about working together
- The Ice Bucket Challenge
