Sharing an email received this morning from Aaron Frederick, former Executive Director of Rippleffect:
Rippleffect is trying a new angle this year, changing it’s traditional November Velvet event to a mid-Winter gala, to be hosted at the Ocean Gateway on Portland’s Waterfront, Feb. 4th, 2010 from 6:30-10:30.
Emilia and I wish we could be there, supporting the important work that Rippleffect’s guides are doing through our many programs. Here in India, we’re witnessing the struggle of a developing country to find it’s identity, support the health and well being of its populous, and avoid re-creating the environmental pitfall that the US consumption habit has created across the globe.
As we move into a complex future, it is vital that we support programs that help youth become solution-oriented, motivated, creative problem solvers, for it will be many of these youth who mantle the responsibility to make a positive change.
Rippleffect’s summer adventures and year-round school outreach programs are constantly evolving to help Maine youth connect to their natural environment, identify their inner strength and resiliency, and recognize their part in building a community that can support the greatest good for society and for the planet.
Find info about time and tickets below. Also, be sure to spread the word and get the youth in your world registered for a Ripple adventure on Cow Island this summer.
Sending our best from Tamil Nadu,
Aaron & Emilia
