SAWA Global Fundraiser

So aside from checking out a billion blogs and website, I actually do work. I want to share with you one of the places where I have been dedicating a significant amount of time and effort into its growth and transition into a global change maker. The non profit is called SAWA Global, it is a Vancouver based organization that aims to bring 'A Global Voice to Local Heroes' from around the world through videography, social media and the web. I think the organization is just at the beginning stages of what it can accomplish in this world and the individuals and communities it can positively affect. I know often on the blogosphere we focus on some very materialistic and perhaps not so significant issues (although some might argue important to our sanity none the less), and sometimes all of us need a bit of a nudge in the abs to realize how lucky we all are for the things we have, the opportunities and the places we are allowed to visit. So I would like to invite all of you who read this blog or browse through it to go and check out SAWA Global. You never know it could teach you something new, or give you new inspiration that you didn't know you had!

SAWA is really about connecting people from around the world to share their stories, and experiences, and work together to create actual solutions to the problems and challenges which so many people and communities are ailed by. In just a year we have been able to make a difference, and give many people a voice which was mussled by distance, lack of resources, and lack of understanding!
