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.
