Last Edition’s Questions (responses with names attributed unless you indicated otherwise):
1) What is a MN-based non-profit you supporting financially this year and why should others joinyou?- “I am supporting Women Achieving New Directionhttp://www.eac-mn.org/WomenProg/WAND (which is a program of the Employment Action Center of Minnesota) because they help single,working mothers (who are financially supporting their children) upgrade their job skills to find jobsthat pay better or provide other benefits including health care.” (Regina Barr)
“Courage Center, and not because I am the chair of the board, but because of the positiveimpact they make on thousands of individuals with physical disabilities under very challengingreimbursement programs.” (Kent Eklund)
“Wellstone Action -- they train regular people, no matter their political leanings, to be informedand organized political citizens and community leaders.” (name withheld)
“One MN nonprofit my husband and I support is Community Celebration of Place because webelieve they are doing an incredibly creative job of helping young children learn about and honorthe wisdom of elders from many cultural traditions. We believe it is a valuable investment in ourmulticultural future.” (Laura Bloomberg)
“Animal Humane Society (AHS) - as many Minnesotans face increasingly challenging economicconditions, many have had to sacrifice. For many Minnesotans, a cat, dog or even a bird or rabbitis viewed as a 'member of the family.' One of the most painful choices I've heard people beingforced to make is giving up a family pet because you are homeless or your budget nolonger covers the cost of pet food or medical bills. When people have to make those hardchoices, the Animal Humane Society doesn't turn them away. They care for those animals and tryto find new families who are able to grow their family. While donations are down to nonprofits likeAHS, the need has spiked. I know my donations are being used to care for and find homes foranimals who will bring a great deal of joy and love into the lives of their owners.” (Teresa Morrow)
CaringBridge. A good friend just died, and CaringBridge was a transformative tool in helping hisnetwork of friends stay connected to each other, and him.” (Sean Kershaw)
Faith’s Lodge. http://www.faithslodge.org/Donate.htm
(name withheld)2) Who is one person that you’d like to publicly thank for the impact they've had on your life in thepast year and why?- “John Yngve, founder of our company, Cincinnatus, on adding the time dimension of his 85 yearsto help us all remain calm in the current white water. This too shall pass!” (Kent Eklund)
“I'd like to publicly thank Charlotte Preston (who recently signed on to this listserv) for the impactshe's had on me this past year. Charlotte is a wise mentor and an innovator. She lives her lifeas an example of social justice.” (Laura Bloomberg)-“My childhood minister, Norbert Johnson. Randy Geller, a friend who died last week at age 45.Donald Jones, the father of my best friend from college.” (Sean Kershaw) 3) What is one goal you have for 2010 that you’re willing to share publicly with this community?- “Continue the quest for a four generation balance of life in our family.” (Kent Eklund)
“My goal for 2010 is to ensure that the U of MN Center for Integrative Leadership highlights andcelebrates the courageous cross-sector leadership that occurs "at the intersections" of society'sbig challenges (e.g., health care and the economy, job security and environmental protection,education and neighborhood development). We can learn powerful lessons from those leaderswho reach across differences to share power and resources-- and lead us toward more viablesolutions.” (Laura Bloomberg)-“Reduce my monthly hours by 15% AND achieve my goals at work.” (Sean Kershaw)
