24087256132_dd5c8c6384_zThis has been one of the best years of my life: I am starting a meaningful environmental project that people are joining in on, and I am supported by your granting agency, which is filled with the same hope and purpose as I. With added confidence, I have described my project and enjoyed conversations with high level business people, environmentalists and others from numerous walks of life. This is now my second career – the first I left to raise children, and so this one, starting the Coalition of Positively Charged People, has given me a sense of purpose and responsibility that I enjoy immensely.
