The Value of Compassion

Quote by: Domonique Bertolucci

Hello my loves, 

My heart is heavy with news about what has been transpiring in Aleppo. Religion, race, gender are among the illusions that keep us divided. Remember that we share more similarities than our eyes allow us to see. And though sometimes our minds need the distraction from all that is happening around the world there comes a point where your soul will beckon you to act. Seeing mothers and fathers hold their lifeless children in their arms is something no human being should ever experience. The world needs more empathy and kindness.  At the end of each year, I have always reward myself with some type of luxe gift to commemorate all of my hard work. This year however, I have decided to forgo this and make monetary contributions to worthy causes that are active positive beams of light in this world. Below are 6 organizations that are doing amazing work.

I hope you open your heart and give.
