What A Year!

What A Year!

I would be sugarcoating it if I said that this was a great year, because, let’s be real, there are a lot of big challenges out there to address. What is AWESOME, however, is that there are people like YOU who are making a difference every day (even when it doesn’t feel like it).

Driving around town running end-of-year errands, I keep thinking about how much meaning I get from working with individuals and organizations dedicated to building community, raising important issues, challenging injustice, and sharing knowledge. And so I made a little “Thank You” video along the way. (FYI, I created this with my Samsung G5 phone and iMovie).


And here are some more shout outs to the folks Spindle & Widget has been lucky to work with this year. Learn more about them, and consider making an end-of-year donation to support their important work!
