Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

Pennies for Peace

3 Degrees Connected Women's Network is gearing up for a fundraising event.  Mark your calendars for May 22, 2010 for our kickoff program at Spring Lake Presbyterian Church.  We are hosting a tea reception with the message of making a difference through supporting the program "pennies for peace" and focused on the mission of Greg Mortensen to promote peace through education. 

Greg Mortensen spoke at GVSU on Tuesday evening, April 6, 2010 to a packed field house.  His speech included not only his mission, but he spoke of a fourteen year old boy in Tampa, Florida who was raising funds for his own cause by walking with his "little red wagon".  What a great inspiration to school children giving them the message that they can make a difference in our world.
