Earth Guardians: We Can’t Do This Without You!

Dear Earth Guardians Supporter,

We want to thank all of you who have supported Earth Guardians in 2017!  This movement is growing so fast that we need everyone’s help to keep up! First, please forward this email to friends and family whom you think will want to support this growing movement.

Next, for all of you who haven’t had the chance to support this amazing work, WE NEED YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS NOW! 



While we work to build our resources, we need your help to assure we can respond to the youth all over the world who are stepping up to join their peers and make a huge difference for the future!


Here at Earth Guardians we are bursting with the energy of young people, on every continent, who are stepping forward to take action in their communities. 


They are done being “the future”, and are committing to participate in the present to transform their own lives, the earth, and the lives of children to come.  Earth Guardians is thrilled to be able to offer youth a way to act, to speak out, to activate their communities, and to affect a brighter future.  We are captivated by the genius and focused commitment that is blooming out of the school yards, villages, and houses of Nigeria, Togo & Rwanda; Ireland, Norway & Poland; Australia, Bhutan & Malaysia; Mexico, the US & Brazil, among so many more.


Earth Guardians is inspiring, activating, and supporting youth in every latitude, terrain, and climate.


From micro-grants and mentorship, to global community-building, Earth Guardians has been supporting youth action for 25 years. Now, with thousands more young people contacting us, ready to get to work, we are experiencing such a massive surge that we must act quickly to keep up! We are working to grow our team, expand our fundraising efforts, increase grants to youth Crews, and plan for a strong 2018.


There is no question that the time is now, and we must act quickly. Your generosity will help us meet the demand of youth who are stepping up as leaders.

Your year-end gift places you firmly among the vast network of like-minded people who are turning the tide toward a healthier planet, healthier inhabitants, and hope and strength for the future.


Please consider a contribution to help support the work of Earth Guardians, as we further the youth movement toward change. We cannot grow this movement without you!


In love and solidarity,
Tamara Roske, Founder

A year ago today…


A year ago today, Morton County Sheriff’s Department and other militarized police raided the newly formed Treaty Camp at Standing Rock. As the memories of the violence remain, so too does the knowledge of why people stood together just last year – for the water and for the earth.

Our movement continues and we encourage you to get involved!

While the camps at Standing Rock have physically closed, the work that was begun there has continued throughout the United States and overseas. On Monday, Seattle activists, many of whom had been at the Standing Rock encampment, shut down 106 bank branches as part of the #DivestTheGlobe campaign. As our friends at MazaskaTalks.Org ( https://mazaskatalks.org/…) explain, #DivestTheGlobe was a 3-day action organized to divest individuals and communities, disrupt business as usual, and draw attention to local projects around the world through nonviolent direct action. The campaign was held from October 23rd-25th but you can still participate by divesting [https://bankongood.com/mazaska/…] your personal finances, signing the EquatorBanksAct petition [https://www.equatorbanksact.org/…] , and more.

We are going ON TOUR in solidarity with our movement!

To help you connect with others in your area, our film AWAKE: A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK will be touring the US and internationally to aid awareness, action and healing. Join us at one of our upcoming events and learn how you can make an impact in your community.

Our tour will feature live appearances and workshops by filmmakers Floris White Bull, Doug Good Feather, Myron Dewey and Josh Fox at certain locations.

Help us make November 26th a meaningful day all around the globe !

To support the work of these elders, but also take advantage of thanksgiving week-end to thank planet Earth and wisdom traditions all over the world, we are asking the whole world to join in a global meditation on November 26 2017.

To explain our initiative and help people spread the message we have shot a video and set up a map on which everybody can pin and describe what they will do that day, share it with the world and invite people to join them.

Please follow this link to read all about this initiative and mark your event on the map :

We would be so grateful if you would help us spread the word throughout your various networks so that numerous people can engage in a personal or collective way to make this event global and meaningful !

 

Message from Jyoti and Darlene – October 18, 2017!!

Dear Relatives and Community,

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the calls, emails, texts and prayers many have sent during this critical time. As you have heard, a fire storm hit near us and it is still raging. 4500 homes and businesses gone. Over 180,000 acres of land burnt and still it rages. 40 lives lost and up to 200 still missing. We lost internet and phone and are now online in our area. Our community center and community members  and their homes are all safe! Some have had to be evacuated, but are safe. We stood ready to leave should the winds shift the direction, and the fires come closer. And now, the winds are slowing and those on the ground putting out the fire say they are beginning to contain it. And for this, we give thanks! That rain is on the forecast, we give thanks! Your prayers are very powerful!! And when we join those prayers, healing happens and miracles make themselves visible. And for this, we give thanks.

Please join your prayers and light your candles, so that we can focus Creator’s Grace on the first responders in the north bay area who are in full service helping in so many ways:  fighting fires, feeding and housing those who lost their homes and businesses, getting electricity and water to whole communities, attending the elderly and ill and so much more. Our communities are in shock and still the fire is not contained. So we need your focused prayers. And as the fires are contained, then our communities will be starting the work of rebuilding. And as we have seen in other communities that have survived a catastrophe, we pray for our consciousness to awaken and bring us solutions that will help us rebuild in ways that are more sustainable, eco friendly, and give thought to the next generations to come.

As Mahatma Gandhi said:
Carefully watch your thoughts, for they become your words. Manage and watch your words, for they will become your actions. Consider and judge your actions, for they have become your habits. Acknowledge and watch your habits, for they shall become your values. Understand and embrace your values, for they become your destiny.

What we have seen through this moment of crisis, is the humanity and heart that lives in us all. And that humanity knew no false boundary of age, race, culture or economic class. We have been responding as a family saving lives, opening homes, volunteering and helping to hold those who have lost so much.
As one elder said, “ It is only material things lost. We have our lives. We can rebuild.”

And as Mother Teresa said:

None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.

Let us walk on this good road together carried by our prayers and driven by our vision. As we light our candles, let us ignite the fires within. And let us feed those fires within through global and personal prayer. For the world can be what we dream it! That is when this moment of tragedy is transformed into possibility!! This is how we have begun to birth a new world.

With great humility and love,
Jyoti and Darlene
