Thanks Gaithersburg, MD–$5000 donated!

The picture says, “Thanks a ton” and we couldn’t have said it better. That, and sumo wrestlers make us giggle.  Thanks to Great Kids Village, the City of Gaithersburg, MD, and everyone who came out to the OneVoice Rocks! Music Festival on July 19. Not only did we have a sweaty, swingin’, singin’ evening–we raised over $5000 to bring music to children everywhere! You people are amazing! Extra gratitude goes to the artists who donated their performances–Lunch Money, Recess Monkey, The Great Zucchini, and John Henry England–and to Pritchard Music, […]

Robbie For Rent: Silent Auction May 2-9

Robbie For Rent: Silent Auction May 2-9

ROBBIE FOR RENT Auction Closed: Brian and Katy of Minneapolis, MN are donating $6177.10 to OneVoice! Thank you all for your love and generosity. We are gobsmacked and grateful beyond words. [dropcap2]I[/dropcap2]n the midst of raising money to fund our trip to Tanzania this summer, an evil but convenient thought arose: Why not auction Robbie off and let him do all the dirty work? After all, he’s full of high charm and low standards. And so it was done. During the week of May 2-9, OneVoice is holding an online […]

Enough

[dropcap2]I[/dropcap2] woke up this morning to lightning and thunder and a gushing torrent of rain. It is spring, but it is still dark at 6:30am and so I sat on my sofa with a cup of steaming tea looking out at the rain and the black. I have felt these last weeks deeply. I have followed the struggles in the middle east with excitement, astonishment, pride, and yes, utter horror. I have watched the earthquake in New Zealand with concern and then watched it followed by the great upheaval in […]

Keeping our connections

Keeping our connections

Ok, I admit it. I watched the Super Bowl this year. Now I’m not much of a football fan, and even less of a television fan, but there I was with my three boys, tuned in for the duration. Oh my. What struck me most deeply was this: In a world that is increasingly connected–which is to say, we are easily and constantly in touch with one another– we are increasingly disconnected from ourselves and each other in any authentic or substantive way. I watched as commercials were played, celebrities […]

The Power of Vulnerability

The Power of Vulnerability

I just had to pass on this TED talk from Brene Brown. She speaks about connection, compassion, and worthiness. Can we look at children of this world and say not, “you are perfect”, but, “you are worthy of love . . . ”

Dear Friends, It is said in the Talmud that to save one life is to save the world entire. Although we may not be able to eradicate all suffering in the world, we can channel our energy, compassion, and talent toward service. In fact, as my yoga teacher says, if we can, we must. It seems appropriate then, that in this season that celebrates light and birth, we are launching OneVoice. Globally, there are hundreds of thousands of children in need. In Sudan countless child soldiers are again at the […]
