In 2019, my friend Tamara Laports (from Willowing Arts) was feeling overwhelmed about climate change. She always looks for ways to BE the change she wanted to see in the world... so she decided to try to DO something about.
Since she teaches art online, she put togeher an online art course sale, with 25% of profits benefiting TreeSisters, an organization that plants trees to fight climate change.
That sale resulted in 81,000 trees being planted! 🌳🌳🌳🌳
I was really inspired by that act of stepping up to be the change.
It's easy to feel like we need to change our whole lives or be braver than we are or just.... like really BEING the change we want to see is out of our reach. We're too small and the world's problems are too big.
Tamara's story shows how we can use the resources we already have in new ways to help make a difference.
So I asked Tamara to talk to me more about her story, and we recorded this video!
