we are all connected

You guys are amazing:  within 24 hours of my previous post going live, Camp Hope received $6000, because of you.*  

Let me repeat: SIX THOUSANDS DOLLARS.

YOU did that.

I'm seriously just stunned.  You know, when beautiful things like this happen, I can't help but marvel at how connected we all are in this world.  The fact that most of you who donated and/or helped to spread the word have never met me in person, probably just heard of Camp Hope for the first time two days ago, and were still compelled to lend a hand ... I mean, that is just a beautiful thing.  I can't tell you how grateful I am to each of you.  Really, really.

Serendipitously, yesterday I also happened upon the video above on my friend Ryan's website:  it is the official music video trailer for the upcoming film One Day On Earth, a movie made from footage taken all around the world on October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10).  The music and imagery you'll see and hear above are from this movie -- and if it doesn't illustrate how connected we all are on this little planet of ours, I just don't know what does.

Enjoy.  And again, thank you, friends.  You're all so incredibly inspiring.

  *  Camp Hope still has quite a ways to go before they meet their budget goal, so any additional word-spreading you can do would be oh-so-appreciated.  Also, the winners of the signed copies of The Beauty of Different have been posted on yesterday's post -- if you won a copy, please email me with your snail-mail address and I'll get your book to you as soon as possible.
