Moments Count is the passion and project of Brooke Leigh Sheldon and Valli Keller.
We are committed to the concept that every person has a purpose and a power to change the world.
We work to create worldwide conversation.
You see, we know that diverse engagement energizes ideas and facilitates opportunities to take action and improve the world we all share.
Sharing ideas sets a kind of magical process into action. It’s like dropping pebbles into the water.
Each time we tell one of your stories about what you are doing to make the world better, the story becomes a pebble dropped in the water.
The ripples spread. The ripples are inspiration and action. Each time we tell one of your stories about what you are doing to make the world better, the story becomes a pebble dropped in the water. The ripples spread.
The ripples are inspiration and action.
So this is a really great reason for us to tell the world about the things you are doing to make this a better world.
The amazing things you are doing to create positive change will, all by themselves, have a ripple effect. Each life you touch will be changed. Each person will be more likely to go out and create more positive change because of your actions.
Take our interview with Zainab Becket of ZCD Foundation, for example. In her first two years of working to improve the conditions of the residents of Sierra Leone in west Africa, Zainab gave 14,000 people healthy drinking water to replace the disease ridden river water they had been drinking before.
If only 1% of those 14,000 people (that’s just 140 people) do something as positive as she did, during the next couple of years, that ripple effect will spread to over
Now, consider that we have told her story on this amazing medium, the worldwide web. It’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 1.7 Billion people surf the internet as of July of 2009. How much farther will that take the ripple effect of Zainab Becket’s work? It’s anybody’s guess. But I know that more people will be impacted.
So, if there is something you are doing to change the world, we want to hear about it! What you are doing could very well start a movement if enough people hear about it.
And if you want to do something to change your world – locally or globally – browse through our stories. Get inspired.
Drop a pebble of your own into the water and watch the ripples spread. You will be amazed at what you can do.
And then, come tell us what you are doing…
Because, at Moments Count we drop pebbles in the water.
