Sometimes, we have to go looking for brightspots or at least keep ourselves open to their possibility. Here are two for me to share this week:
1. Primavera Foundation www.primavera.org
and their continued amazing work in South Tucson that not only includes the efforts they have done for years to help improve the lives of homeless individuals and families, but also their ongoing rehab, community gardens, watershed management, buffalo grass and (most recent) manufactured housing with LEED certification dealership! Talk about walking the talk, this group does it. Add to that their support of restorative justice workshops (with the UA College of Law) and partnership with Habitat for Humanity which is my #2 brightspot.
2. My hubby and I volunteered for two hours yesterday at the Tucson Chamber of Commerce Biz Expo, helping Habitat spread the word about their housing program and the continued success of the HabiStore. If you want to experience some of the light from their efforts, there are two housing dedications coming up: June 14, 9 a.m. at 2224 S. Hiram Banks Court and June 21, 9 a.m. at 2880 N. Balboa. They can always use more volunteers and sponsors. www.habitatucson.org
So shine a little light in your life and mine--share some of your recent brightspots!
