Russell! You crazy rebel, you! ;) Glad to see you've put all of the kundalini rising energy to use!

For the past 4 years, I have been pouring my heart and soul into a project called Tomorrow’s Roundtable and am now ready to share that with the world; we are creating a television show that will provide a platform for exceptional young people to have a voice on real-world problems. This project is for the betterment of humanity and will give all children a chance to have a say in building a better future.

Adora Svitak, a 16-year-old author, speaker, and education activist has just joined as the spokesperson for the project, and we are now building a coalition of amazing children to join the cause! You can check out the Ted talk she gave here:

to learn more about why I am doing this work. I'd love to combine our efforts in creating a safe and better world for children.

Lots of love,

I admire your words and your actions even more. Please please please check out my project. I'm a small artist (in both stature and influence). I've created a card game as a way for people to interact and create commentary on communism, capitalism, greed, etc… please check it out. www.shutyourmao.com

We even have a Russell Brand card.

Thanks!

Since reading "Catching the Big Fish", I have wanted to learn TM. Now, almost 7 years later, I finally took the necessary steps to do so through tm.org. The David Lynch Foundation does amazing work and I am really grateful for people such as yourself, David and many others, who use their public platform to raise awareness and this particular case human consciousness ;) Hugs!

Happy August! A vote for you :)

Every year, thousands of kids start school with no books in the classroom, poor school libraries, and no books of their own. Reader to Reader gives out hundreds of thousands of books to under-resourced schools, libraries and children, but the need is especially strong at the start of the school year. They need YOUR help to get books into the hands of children who truly need the power of reading in their lives.

Please consider giving what you can to this important cause. If you can't give now, join the team and spread the word!
Thank you,
Kat

CROWDRISING SINCE: May 10, 2010
Stuff About Me:
I am supporting The David Lynch Foundation. Please join me.

This foundation was established to ensure that any child in America who wants to learn and practice the Transcendental Meditation program can do so. The TM program is the most thoroughly researched and widely practiced program in the world for developing the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improving health, reducing stress, and improving academic outcomes.

After I learned Transcental Meditation on a 4-day course, I truly believe first hand that this practice does wonders with your mind, body and soul. Now daily practice is putting distance between myself and addiction. I’m living in a disciplined way, doing lots of yoga, exercise and Transcendental Meditation. It’s not half good. They give you a mantra … You feel attuned to a consciousness that is beyond your identity and beyond life.

Please check out my project to support this great program. It is very important to me and if anything, I ask that you learn more about it.

Recently I visited Kenya and met some amazing children there and spent their days on the trash heaps looking for anything they could salvage or sell.
In Nairobi, diggers churned the rancid earth and gangsters menacingly patrolled, frequently, I was told abusing the girls who forage there.
Among these children I met, all of whom have lost one or more parent to HIV, it is impossible not to be touched by their incredible spirit and innate ability to be optimistic and playful; normal children, in fact.

I've included some photos from my trip there to the left.

Please check back here in a week when I will have a project that is dedicated to helping these kids find a better life.

Thanks for coming to visit my page. Really... Thanks

Russell
