Eugene, OR, US
I would like to give a shout out to Benjamin and his time and service to this wonderful community! If not for him we wouldn't have this fabulous network! Let us stick together, work together, and continue to generously take care of one another's needs!
My familia and I are forever grateful for Kindista. Our truck broke down in Eugene OR. We were a familia of 15, there were no hotels available because of the Ducks game, so we were forced camping. This turned out to BE the most exciting adventure ever for us in Oregon. The people were Wonderful. They brought us food, finances, blankets, clothing, introduced us to Kindista, and You all loved us through our trying time. We connected with some Awesomely Amazing Oregon Lights. Thank you all for the LOVE. Keep shining!
I am feeling extreme gratitude for Benjamin Crandall for the tireless dedication and endless hours of coding and creative problem solving he has dedicated to creating this Facebook interface for Kindista. I have no doubt this will be a great boon towards facilitating the sharing of resources and gifts in our communities.
Thank you for showing up in your fullness! Your partnership in growing Kindista is a great blessing in my life. I feel so much more trust, enthusiasm, and excitement having you as a partner.
Thank you for following your heart and being willing to be big. Thank you for seeing and nurturing the gifts of those around you, even when they have difficulty seeing those gifts themselves.
And thank you for your immense contribution to making the 2015 Holiday Free Market happen. I'm not sure if it would have happened without you, and it certainly wouldn't have been anywhere near as successful.
Benjamin continues to support me through his kindness, and reminding of the power of gratitude. I'm excited that he's launched the Facebook integration for Kindista, and thank him for his significant efforts to get that all figured out. To the years ahead, and the present moment, and for the opportunities they bring to be loving, grateful, and in service.
Tara, I found a beautiful yellow shirt that was gifted today at the Kindista event that I absolutely love. It fits beautifully and I will wear it when I work with the children. Thank you so much for your giving heart--- it is always lovely to see you when I see you.. and I absolutely honor your work with kindista and in the community. Your song is sung in many beautiful ways and I am grateful.
Thank you Tara Jones for adding music and poetry to my life through the gifts I found from you at the Celebration last Saturday: a Cheryl Wheeler cd and Gurumukh Singh cd, and a book of selected poems by Neruda and Vallejo. I also noticed all the many gifts you left on the table for others to enjoy, and thought that was very kind of you. Take good Care, Adeena
