In celebration of International Women's Day I want to introduce you to two extraordinary women I was privileged to be with last week, Donna Goodman and Zainab Salbi.  When you have time, take a look at their websites. And as a follow-up to Jean Bolen's story there is a youtube link below.


“I am an action-oriented visionary with a passion for ‘connecting the dots’ (whether they are individuals, organizations, places, policies, etc)… and weaving more coherent, higher functioning structures 
Founder Donna Goodman

"Everything can be taken from you in a second, but the human spirit is so strong. War can teach you so much about evil, and so much about good." - Founder Zainab Salbi 

We would like to post stories of people you know who are examples of currency of the heart in action.  I invite you to send your stories to 

As part of the effort to collect stories for this blog, hundreds of the cards shown below were given to participants of the 57 Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
