About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... ServiceSpace projects are a major part of my day, everyday!

A good day to me is when ... I have done something for someone with no expectation of anything in return.

My hero in life is ...ServiceSpace

My favorite book is ...To Kill a Mockingbird

One thing I'm grateful for is ... I'm in the company of like-hearted people.


Touching Note From KarmaTube Visitor

Feb 14, 2017, 8 smiles We just received a very sweet comment from a KarmaTube viewer ...   Hello and thank you so much for offering KarmaTube to the world. I am a public school teacher (certified to teach grades 6-12 in multiple subjects including history (U.S. and world), political science, ELA, environmental science, biological science and a couple of others. Having recently come across KarmaTube, I have already shared the resource and used its videos multiple times. I am finding ways to use this site in so many different areas and my students have had many new and wonderful experiences as a result. Thank you!  The website states that the organization is looking for help with content writing and I am happy to offer my assistance. I am an Ivy League educated scientist and, as stated, have a great deal of experience with teaching. Writing is a passion of mine and I have written extensively on myriad ... Read Full Story

Received A Beautiful Gift (actually, Six) ...

Feb 14, 2017, 1 comments, 13 smiles Received a beautiful gift (actually, six) from Jean Yao, who used to make e-cards for SSp many years ago. I was looking for an image to use for the "Why Be Kind?" video that was brought to KarmaTube by Pavi, and has recently been featured on DailyGood. Not seeing anything I liked, I contacted Jean to see if she had any images from old e-cards that she had made in the past. She made some new ones, and not knowing which one I'd like, sent me all six that she had done in a matter of hours. She has been disturbed by what is happening in the U.S. and responded: "To do something nice is a wonderful therapy to move forward. ;-)" I will share them all with you once I figure out how to add more than one image to this message ( :) ) in case any of you would like to use them in your various newsletters.

This Week's Video Of The Week, ...

Jun 26, 2016, 8 smiles This week's Video of the Week, The Chicken Lady, was also featured on DailyGood the next day. We received some beautiful comments from viewers, which elicited this response from Amy Murphy, the Chicken Lady herself: Thanks all. You are so kind. The truth is that I receive a blessing many times over from this work - much more than the other way around. My friends have changed my life. If you'd like to read more about this work and how it has evolved, check out my blog, wwww.themiraclesIsee.org. I have learned so much: it does not help to simply give to folks who are in need. If we give food, if we give housing, we are only addressing symptoms - and it has zero lasting effect. If, on the other hand, we mentor families - find out why that child is coming to school hungry - and assist folks as they deal with the CAUSES of hunger and homelessness, then we can, as a community, move mountains. It really will take a huge "village." Bless you for your caring hearts. Amy  

Father-Daughter Rap Video :)

Apr 12, 2016, 1 comments, 12 smiles Just got this sweet note from a KarmaTube viewer: ​"I decided to make a rap music video with my 6 year old daughter to announce the expectant arrival of her little brother. The impending birth of my son is the primary message in this video, but my underlying message is to showcase the real love between a father and his daughter and to encourage other fathers to the build loving, strong relationships with their own children."  

The KindSpring Community Rocks! I Haven't ...

Feb 26, 2016, 4 comments, 24 smiles The KindSpring community rocks! I haven't been on the site in a while, but yesterday, I posted a story of a small RAOK. In minutes, the supportive comments and KarmaBucks started rolling in. In one day, I received 16 comments (and lots of back and forth with many community members) and 470 KarmaBucks! I assume most stories get this kind of reaction from the KS community. What an inspiring place to hang out! Thank you to all the coordinators, Weavers (is this still a term?) and invisible hearts that keep this going.

Jul 11, 2015, 1 comments, 10 smiles Recently received the following email to KarmaTube (perhaps the other portals also received the same email?). Nice of Bill to share the love. My name is Bill Rose and like yourself, I've built a website solely to make the world a better place called compassionandlove.org. It's filled with lots of beautiful, inspiring and uplifting links.

Below is a link to that page for your convenience and I thank you for helping to make the lives of people here on earth, better. I wish you much continued success in that endeavor. With much love and many blessings of peace to all of you, Bill Rose Studio City, CA
