I am creating this new award to recognize those bloggers at WordPress who are working to make a difference in the world.
Recipients of the Working to Change the World Award work hard and sincerely to make the world a better place, using their compassion, love, and understanding, and promoting open minds, free communication of ideas and, above all, peace.
There are people who do not accept awards who are deserving, and I just want you to know that I appreciate all of the work that you do on your Blog here at WordPress, and I am proud to be part of the WordPress Family with you.
- Post the award on your blog
- Link back to the person you nominated you
- List one thing — however small — that you think would make the world better if everyone did it
- Nominate bloggers whom you feel help to Change the World — there’s no minumum or maximum, just a list of those you feel are deserving
The very first nominees for the Working to Change the World Award are:
- Crowing Crone Joss
- Dr Rex
- Shaun Gibson
- Petite Magique
- Central Oregon Coast NOW
- Sue Dreamwalker
- poesy plus polemics
- we the people
- owls and orchids
Delighted, honoured and overjoyed to share in such appreciation and efforts. Thank you Barabara, I shall organise this on my blog soon.
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.
Thank you for creating this! Your blog is one if the very first activist blogs I discovered on WordPress (I came into blogging thru reading a couple of spiritual related blogs even tho I’ve been a lifelong activist).
I have discovered so many wonderful activist blogs thru your posts and reblogs and am very often inspired and informed by your original posts as well.
Im going to reblog this to share the blogs you awarded with others. I have received a couple of awards but have been unable to figure out how to do the steps involved on this phone-i think they are a great idea for finding and sharing good blogs I’m just pathetically slow at figuring out new things with multiple steps:-/ ( I think you were the first person to give me one so this is sort of an apology and explanation of my glacial speed of accepting and reposting along with my gratitude for all the great connections you make in helping us all improve our world:-)
Oh, you are so nice. My computer sister lives with me and handles them for me. She has two computer degrees ic computers. Computer networking and computer security. If you can’t get it let me know with a private message on FB and I will give you my number and the two of you can get it done. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm about my blog.i don’t know if you have ever read my profile, but this is the first writing I have ever really done. You humble me with your praise. Hugs, Barbara

I love this blogger and her wonderful knack at finding and sharing interesting and enlightening posts, stories and blogs. So not claiming to have received this myself since I have been unable to accomplish the steps involved in reposting the awards I have received (phones are complicated for us old folks!:-) but I do want to share the list of blogs that are helping change the world.
Margaret Mead once said to never doubt the power of a small group if committed citizens to change tge world-indeed she said it was the only thing that ever had:-)
I perceive bloggers to be the determined recipients of Mead’s advice. Most of us do believe in the power we all have to create a better world. I believe that the more people connect with one another, share ideas and support the faster that change will come.
One man in Tunisia lit a fuse to a powder keg of change that is still exploding across the Earth as people in every country build the changes street by street, blog by blog, nation by nation.
You are so kind. A wonderful example of the best of human beings. Hugs, Barbara
Thank you Barbara! Hugs and love to you too:-)
