Each day like a wrapped present,
I shake it, and need to know.
Remembering my fifth grade teacher's voice,
the softest voice I had ever heard,
still loud and strong in my heart
Crocuses breaking the ground in early spring
bursting through the frozen earth
with the message of green
The difference between the world we live in
and the one we can create together
My son's smile in the morning,
each day a new path he will travel
The belief that health and wellness
is a human right
The intent of our donors
for a more whole and loving world
Realizing that creating positive change
in the world is not
a hard thing to do.
One hand, one voice linking to another.
One hundred and twenty-five thousand
inspired by a single child's poem.
Helping young children realize
that their voices can shape the world
