I was involved with Seedlings when it was just a dream of Eveline Maria Smith, the founder of Seedlings. We were on a trip together and made a special trip to Scotland, to Findhorn, to see how this organizatiion lived and maintained their aims for so many years, with Seedlings formation in mind. And in 2009 Seedlings of Change was founded and I have been on the Board of Directors since that time and work very closely with Eveline and the other members to try and make changes in the world that help to improve the lives of everyone and teach people that they, through their individual lifestyles and efforts, CAN make a difference. I am most proud of our mini-grant program which provides, after a detailed application, description of the group and a check in plan with Seedlings that follow through is apparent, small grants to local and international groups teaching children and adults, in projects, how to make changes in the environment. We have one in Africa, Thailand, several in Montana, and elsewhere and, although they are small amounts, $600 to $1,000, a lot is accomplished by each organization with our assistance. My hope is to be able to raise funds to continue to do more and larger mini-grants and continue to make a difference in our world because, to my mind, it is each one of us, making an effort and following through on our thoughts/actions that CAN make changes so sorely needed all over the globe. Thank you for the opportunity of sharing about Seedlings of Change. Sincerely, Joan Douma, Secretary, Board of Directors of Seedlings of Change.

I became acquainted with the founder of Seedlings before the nonprofit became a reality and encouraged and supported her goal to have this come into being. I was asked to be on the Board and I was proud to be a board member as I so believe in the general mindset and goals to improve our world, in any small way that is possible, and wanted to be an active part of this nonprofit and website. We have provided several mini-grants within the past year and a half, in various locations and helping various project, many of which involved children who are, as we know, the next leaders of our country. We continue to grow and our goal is to do all we can, as an organization, to bring peace, understanding and positive action and reinforcement to make our world a better place for all people to live in. We welcome all new members who have a similar interest and walcome you to join our nonprofit.

The Great!

I am an artist and an Early Childhood Educator/families advocate. Seedlings of Change has opened up great new avenues for me personally and professionally on both of these levels. I have been able to develop and reach out to others through my artwork through Seedlings of Change. This non-profit program has given me the opportunity to help promote understanding and respect for our world and humanity. Seedlings of Change is helping to create a better place for children and families through their various reach-out programs in communities nation and world wide. I am proud and grateful to be a part of such an outreach oraganization as Seedlings of Change.

I greatly admire the mission and passion set forth by the Seedlings of Change organization: to connect people, around the world, and within their local communities. The focus is diverse--from a project to encourage strength and confidence in young women in Missoula, to supporting development of a school garden in a small village in Africa--sending the message that a small seed planted indeed can create change.

I became aware of this organization through Facebook and they are truly trying to make a difference. They have provided a mini-grant to The Creative Gig Project to help the local artists within the community find work. Which as we all know is a dying profession due to lack of funding and interests in our schools. I wish there were more organizations like this one! Because Artists are never going to save the world but they will make it worth saving!

I attended Seedlings of Change annual fundraiser and I had a wonderful experience meeting the Board Members and hearing about how they are helping provide mini-grants to other nonprofits in the community and globally. Especially the mini-grant's provided to SAP to help educate children and the community about protecting our environment.

I first heard of Seedlings of Change through my sister, Joan Douma.
After reading Seedlings Mission Statement and investigating further, I signed on.
Seedlings of Change, under the guidance of Eveline contantly moves forward to touch people around the globe with many different
projects.
We began work on the Global Harmony Quilt and asked for small bits of fabric from around the world. We were amazed at the response and interest and this beginning lead to the discovery of various other projects touching the world.
A couple of examples:
A group of quilters making quilts and donating them for the soldiers injured in the war.
A lawyer in a 3rd world country setting up a program to teach women who had been taken from their families and when they escaped, were not welcome back into the villages. A place was formed with a teacher to teach sewing. When the time was over, they got $100, a sewing machine, and fabric.
These 2 examples are just a part of the type of work that Seedlings of Change is in the midst of. Eveline constantly searches for more ways of bettering our world, one person or group at a time.
Seedlings of Change is a gift to all.

Seedlings of Change is a fantastic, grassroots nonprofit that works to bring awareness to important issues such as service, sustainability, and authentic living. The Girls Way, a nonprofit I work for, is opening next month with the help of a grant awarded by Seedlings of Change. Eveline Maria Smith, the director, has been a delight to network with, along with other members belonging to their online community.

I've been with this org. since the very beginning. I greatly identfy with its vision. Sowing seeds of harmony, tolerance and cultural bonding can ensure a better and peaceful world.


The cutural harmony quilt created by the members from all over the world is a heart-warming and
wonderful example of vasudhaiva kutumbakam, ie., the vision of entire world as ONE family. It has paved the way and made us realise its possibility bringing us a step closure to its realisation.


It sows seeds of such bright and positive change so needed for us to survive and thrive. We owe it to Earth, to ourselves and to our children & the following generations.


I wish more seeds for strength & more success towards realisation of a better world.

I've experienced and witnessed this organization paving the way and making us realise the possibility of bringing together the world's different cultures through its various measure, namely cultural quilt, recipes etc., thus bringing us a step closure to the realisation of making the entire world a Global village.

No changes. Only I'd like to see more and more motivated people join this wonderful organization which quietly, slowly but surely goes on sowing more seeds of a future world where all are equal and where all cultures and communities flourish in peaceful co-existence.

Seedlings of Change helped plant the seed for our organizations Student Action Program (S.A.P.). Without their support and strong encouragement for our S.A.P. program designed to empower students in Thailand to design and implement 2 environmental-community based projects of their own, we never would have been able to make the difference that we have. Seedlings of Change is made up of individuals who are truly dedicated towards helping others, as they have no paid staff, all of their energy goes into helping communities and others in need.
