TRI-VALLEY COMMUNITIES AGAINST A RADIOACTIVE ENVIRONMENT
October 20, 2008

In my many years of volunteering, I have found Tri-Valley CAREs to be unique, particularly in two qualities. The first is that it accomplishes so much good in the community and the world on such a modest budget. The second is that each year, during the group's strategic planning retreat,goals are prioritiized for the coming months - and THESE GOALS ARE ALWAYS MET!. I truly have never seen so much done with so little. It is an honor to be involved with this organization.

Equal Access International
October 20, 2008

Equal Access' mission to bridge the digital divide by increased access to information as a means to alleviate economic and social conditions is very valuable. Let me bring to your attention a quote from a recent Op/Ed article in The New York Times by the Secretary General. He underscored that “…education and prevention are still the most powerful weapons against the spread of HIV – as such. Equal Access spearheads these efforts through its programmes.

WORLD OF GOOD DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION INC

The Fair Wage Guide is currently one of the most important initiatives in the fair trade craft movement. The Guide provides a framework for ensuring the successful growth of the movement, both in terms of increased market penetration and increased social impact per fair trade purchase. The World of Good Development Organization’s efforts are helping ensure that the fair trade craft movement realizes its potential for promoting dignity and making "living wage employment" a reality for an increasing number of artisans throughout the world.

LIBERATION PRISON PROJECT INC
October 20, 2008

Letter from prisoner: I would sincerely like to thank you for the book you sent me “The Peaceful Stillness of the Silent Mind”. It was very though provoking to me in my inner quest for understanding and self-inquiry. It also lets me know I have a long way to go in my daily meditations as I seek to learn more about the world both without and within by being. I am still using this book to help me as I sit and ponder all life offers to us as we seek greater awareness. I would like to request any other book think might be helpful as I am trying to get more into the spiritual understanding of Buddhism. I am a novice and here on maximum security I find I am the only one out of 33 females who is seeking spiritual knowledge and guidance outside of Christianity. It makes the practice harder in some ways because there is no outside support or meditation in here. However, my single cell status is almost like being in my own apartment in the city. I’ve started calling it my condo and just that change of thinking lifts me from the prison walls I’ve erected in my mind, and lets me begin to see prison as a stop on my journey in life. I sincerely appreciate all that you do.

The Great!

myself. I realize how I have been imprisoned in my mind, more than being in prison itself.
