“Story Changers: Love” has me crying already.

I got this in my inbox this morning:

Jasmine just made a donation of $55 in your name to Safe Spaces & Loans for 2,000 Girls in Bangladesh, a project on GlobalGiving.org.

The card said: Pema, Here is to intimate love blossoming in our lives and in the world. Thanks for your help in creating this opportunity. Love, Jasmine

Story Changers grew out of a desire to change my life by changing the stories I tell about it. I have watched others do it. I have coached clients that tell their success stories and then live into them.

I had no idea it could change…the world.

Jasmine’s email brought home what we’re doing here. What love can do. How community can heal exponentially. How, from far flung parts of the world, we are a community, sprung solely from the desire for love.

Freely give, freely receive

STORY CHANGERS: LOVE is free. With a call to give.

When we put a stake in something, we’re likely to stay through the hard parts. We remember why we started and who we’re committed to, and keep going.

I’ll ask participants to give a donation to something that is meaningful to them–of any amount–that they believe will help keep their stake in the effort.

The Girl Effect

For instance, Tara Sophia Mohr’s #GirlEffect campaign is infiltrating the blogosphere. What if your heart goes out the girls in developing countries, and your wallet comes out to stoke nothing less than a revolution? You are changing the world a girl at a time as you are changing YOU. Each chapter you read for “Story Changers: Love,” you are causing love to come to you, and you’re offering a girl possibility, freedom, choice, life. You’re changing your story for the better. And you’re helping her changing hers.

Did you know? Less than two cents of every international aid dollar spent in the developing world is earmarked for girls. And yet when a girl has resources, she will reinvest them in her community at a much higher rate than a boy would. If the goal is health, wealth, and stability for all, a girl is the best investment.

If you’ve been looking for love, and you want to invite it into your life, give as you receive. Let yourself feel the love while you’re changing the story.

The Lilith Road

Hello from the road! It’s been an amazing journey. My blog post on Alter Eco today goes deep to tell the richness of what I’m experiencing here, both as a woman, and a supporter of collaborative enterprise, and, you know, MUSIC!

Take a peek.

(P.S. It includes the gorgeous images of David Bergman, the tour photographer. So pretty. You don’t want to miss them.)
