I'm sharing this email from UUSC in case you haven't already seen it and signed the holiday card. Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Chara Itoka, UUSC <info [at] uusc.org> Date: Tue, Dec 23, 2014 at 9:15 AM Subject: A brighter day To: sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com Dear Scott, When faced with all the injustice in the world, I find hope in people who are demonstrating their resilience and claiming their power in the midst of challenges. I’m writing to invite you to share a moment of joy with us at UUSC.* Please sign a holiday card to communities living near the Kakamega rain forest in Kenya. <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=sKdj5OHPI3C5xD2VUpk9kQ> *Their successful efforts to protect the food, water, and natural environment on which they rely truly give reason for hope. People in Kakamega are already experiencing the effects of climate change, in the form of unpredictable rainfall and challenges growing crops. And yet these communities, which have a long history of successfully protecting their rain forest through the UUSC-supported Hope in Crops project, are finding new ways to grow food and protect their access to clean water. Join us in sending a holiday card to families participating in Hope in Crops to celebrate their efforts and wish them joy in the year ahead! *All you need to do is add your name and, if you would like, a short comment with your well wishes.* <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=69LNv_3PAbS3LF8M5Fyz5g> The situation in Kakamega wasn’t always so bright. Chrisantus Mwandihi, who grew up there, spent years unjustly imprisoned for his activism to save the rain forest. When Chrisantus left prison, he started Hope in Crops to preserve the environment while also engaging community members in sustainable agriculture. “Finally, now I can go to the home of any of our members, at any time of the year, and there will be food,” Chrisantus recently said. “There was not before. More and more communities are seeing that our families are thriving.” This holiday season, *sign the card to UUSC’s friends at Hope in Crops, to wish them a wonderful year ahead.* <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=dXRSlrkLY_ncLbhn69l3GQ> Best wishes, Chara Itoka Associate Director for Program and Partner Support Unitarian Universalist Service Committee PS. The recent winter solstice is a turning point; each day will be brighter than the one before in the months ahead. It’s an apt time to thank people in Kenya whose work provides hope throughout the year. *Sign the holiday card today!* <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=PzByErzrAif9Y_-Zgo_jBA> View Message in Web Browser <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=y4xDKLK18D0Ig7dqrCuU5w> | Donate <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=8bC4aPFFV6mfRcgu_VR4zA> | Update profile/e-mail address <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=zOIc_bPhxvrWRxvigvif6w> | Unsubscribe <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/CO?i=XStBjJlybCo6SnmqPazktQUwP9gFjxUM&cid=1025> | Website <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=38evcbnUSVsEn6n92KHoVQ> [image: powered by Blackbaud] <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=DTdGbJVQacRjPY_EYNQWCQ> nonprofit software <http://actnow.uusc.org/site/R?i=PZvBw2DOrl_U9OftxksksQ>
