giving back

-- Quote of the Day --

"All the joy the world contains comes through wishing happiness for others. All the misery the world contains comes through wanting pleasure for oneself."
~ Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva

-- Brummet's Fund-raising Efforts --

Lillian and Dave Brummet are known for their volunteer work with school theater productions, art presentations, fund-raising events, participation in green initiatives and donations of thousands of books over the past 10 years to the following organizations: Grand Forks and West Boundary Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy - Women's Resource Center - Whispers of Hope Org. - Grand Forks Public Library - Community Futures Resource Center.

When the Brummet's became published authors they decided to make sure that some of the proceeds were given to charity. While there are so many worthy causes the Brummet's would love to play a role in - realistically they must limit their efforts to only a few. But you can help too!

Help the authors, who donate 30% of the royalties they receive from book sales, raise funds for the Society for Prevention Against Cruelty to Animals, the Canadian Wildlife Federation and the Seeds of Diversity Organization simply by purchasing your very own copy of one of their books:

* Purple Snowflake Marketing - a fantastic book promotion guide available for only $10! -

* Just released, revised edition of Towards Understanding (poetry re: finding value & purpose in life) in e-book format, only $8.95! -

* Hard & soft cover 1st editions for Towards Understanding & Trash Talk (environment/reuse/reduce) are available via most online retailers (i.e. or at a discount from the publisher: ) or by ordering in through your favorite local retailer.

-- Positive Eco-News --

Sanyo Electric Co., one of Japan's leading electronics manufacturers, began construction of a new plant for HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer) solar cells on February 17, 2009, in order to meet an increasing demand for solar power generation. The new production facility is being built in the Nishikinohama Factory, the company's HIT solar cell production base in Osaka, and is planned to be completed in October 2009.
