THE LISTENING CAMPAIGN

Hi Sarah,
This is a good idea. Most of us do alot of talking than listening. I will listen as much as I can.

Thank you

Sarah,

You are a breath of fresh air. Not to mention my daughter's name is SARA (Without the H) so I have a special affinity.
I will be listening and think what you are doing to sensitize the world to listen more is commendable and much needed.

I always have joked that God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason ! Haha.

Also, when I started my non-profit "I AM ONE IN A MILLION" in 2007, I had little money which was a gift. It enabled me to go for 4 years,several times a year, to Livingstone Zambia and get entrenched and just take in traditions, customs and to answer over 4 years why nothing seems to be working long term in Zambia. The listening, observing and taking time to have them trust me speaks volumes as to why I am having long term success now.

You can check my NGO out if you like at iamoneinamillion.ws if you like.

In either case, keep up the good cause and work and I will remind others to listen on that day and always.

Dear Wendy,

Thank you! I love your sense of humor, and I'm delighted that your daughter's name is Sara!

I will check out your NGO today and am so glad to hear a little bit about your journey.

Let's keep in touch.

May The Force Be With You,

Practicing for Listening Day

Hi Sarah with an h,

Just want you to know I am practicing for Listening Day. In fact, I have to keep this short because I have to go listen to people! Haha.

You are definitely sensitizing and expanding all of us with energy and awareness to LISTEN and to encourage others to do so. It will help the world.

Thank you, Wendy! May I excerpt your comment on the Facebook Listening Campaign page? I will wait to hear from you.

Ubuntu - I love that and have now used it on The Listening Campaign site.

Hi Sarah with an h

Yes, Sarah.

Thanks for asking permission first. You are a classy lady. It would be an honor to me if you use it.

Good luck.

Ubuntu,

Wendy

p.s. Don't you think if there were only one word you could use for the rest of your life, that the word :ubuntu" would be it? I mean, it encompasses everything and every feeling.

Thank YOU!

Thank you, Wendy. You've taught me this word and I thank you! And yes! It would be a great choice if we could only use one word for the rest of our lives!
