Today I read about a wonderful project, to establish a women’s textile co-operative, in a rural village located on the Osa Peninsula, in the south-western corner of Costa Rica, Central America.
How amazing! As they point out in the facts page, women’s collectives and micro-loans to women have been shown time and time again to benefit entire villages.
They have a wish list and as I read through it I realized that I have so many of the items that they need in my garage waiting for a project. I am going to package them all up and send them along as I really can’t think of a better way to use them.

I love how you and your family\’s social conciousness seems to be part of the everyday fabric of your lives!

oh thank you so much Neora. We work hard on this with the kids and by doing so, reinforce our own beliefs.
