Imagine if you will, various non profits that you really love and care for and help with.. Imagine you can earn HOURS that you can exchange for various services, like plumbing, massage, a car drive, a meal made or a class to learn how to cook, sew, prune, etc......
more people cleaning creeks or the ocean
spreading the publicity and promotional efforts of ECOSLO or the Sierra Club
or the clean up after an event to entice people to clean up and earn HOURS
or to add those email addresses into your data base
or postering flyers for an event
or making those precious phone calls to the media
or putting on an event....
The following article explains it very well (the bold type comes from meau)....

Small town Sebastopol residents in Northern California have been waging a fierce David vs. Goliath struggle against the powerful Chase Bank, CVS Pharmacy, and Armstrong Development for over two years. The implications of this struggle extend beyond this one town, as big business continues to seek to expand its wealth.

Congo is like a microcosm of the entire planet, taken to its extreme. One of the most beautiful places on Earth, it is also among the most troubled.
Today I received the following letter from my dear friend, Cynthia Jurs. For the last two decades she has traveled all over the world on a mission of peace and healing where it is needed the most, including Liberia, Los Alamos, Hiroshima, Israel/Palestine, New York City, Colombia, and many sacred sites as well. Each place she goes she ceremonially buries an Earth Treasure Vase according to the instructions given her by a 106-year-old lama in a cave in Nepal. Yes, it sounds like a New Age cliche, but that’s what happened. You can find out more about her project here. Cynthia wrote:
I just returned 2 nights ago from [The Democratic Republic of] Congo where I was for 3 weeks and read your email yesterday. This morning in my jet lag stupor I woke at 3am and began to read from one of the many books about Congo I have been drawing from in order to understand what the solution to the mess there might possibly be. I suddenly found myself thinking of you. Hearing your musing about what is next and how best to channel your gift, I wonder if you might be interested in turning your attention to Congo?
Unlike any place on this Earth, it is very difficult to see how to resolve the situation in Congo. I think your insight and the issues you are grappling with to write a new story in the world could be of great benefit if directed towards looking deeply at Congo.
