Editors Monthly “Share”

Love and Honor go hand-in-hand, as insidewink co-founders and editors, Jean Trebek & Alison Martin talk about and thank those compassionately helping the world.

PLUS they look at what’s up insidewink and share some amazing articles you might have missed…

Honoring Compassion

February has the “holiday of love” smack dab in the middle, so we want to take a minute to honor that celebration and all the people who are doing some uniquely positive things. It seems that we can go weeks without hearing about all the compassionate, brave and inspiring moments that are happening all around us without our even knowing it, every single day.

So, to all the people who are taking time to perform acts – both large and small – with the intention of blessing others and the world, we would like to say thank you. We honor you and appreciate you.

A wonderful part of working on insidewink is the number of interesting people we get to meet that are committed to helping. Some people we have had the privilege of speaking with that have really stood out are:

Foster mom Rachel Marie Cowan Hero Mom to 9 Kids: Fostering Love to Children in Need – raising a family of 9

Honoring Sustainability

Taking responsibility is an act of honor.  How we move in the world and how we create a future that’s better than the present is an esteemed vision.

We are honoring socially responsible companies that have the distinction of sustainability by sharing with you our 12 Days of Love – insidewink Valentine’s Gift Guide.
