Ascending Butterfly began as a small empowerment community with a simple mission statement: To seek out and share the best sources of inspiration on and off the web. To empower and inspire a mind, body and soul approach to wellness and wellbeing. We started with simple daily breathing affirmational excercises and inspirational quotes. We encouraged you to bring out the best within yourself first, because much like an Airline Stewardess warns you to put the oxygen mask over your own face first, you can't inspire others if you  yourself are not living inspired and empowered. It's been a super long journey since those humble beginings in 2009. But the first thing I learned about my Ascending Butterflies is that you all celebrate the importance of Social Good. You all made it clear that if the community was going to open it's doors to brands, and I very much made readers a part of that decision, you all mentioned that we should start with brands giving back and doing good. And I love each and every single one of you for reaching out to me with that stipulation. I have certainly stuck to it!

And just like many years ago you all called me to action about making sure our collaborations made sense and were truly an organic fit to the community, I now call YOU all to action today. I have a simple but very powerful call to action for each and every single one of you reading this today!

Toyota partnered with Food Bank for New York City to bring food to areas that were impacted by Superstorm Sandy. The program which is called Meals Per Hour, galvanized a team from the Toyota Production System Support Center (TSSC) to share Toyota know-how on how to do more with less.

Toyota in their wisdom sought to INCREASE the number of meals given out per hour. Through small changes, the team was able to increase the number of emergency meal boxes from 25 to 450 per hour! Providing 250,000 meals in the process. They proved that small changes can have a HUGE impact!

Watch Supermarché's documentary to see what changes Toyota made and why these changes matter.:

Toyota will also donate one meal to Food Bank For New York City, up to 1,000,000 meals by July 19, for each video watched in it's entirety.

I try to do something good for someone each day, be it hold a door open for someone, help someone upstairs with heavy bags, just simple deeds that mean alot to the person who is on the receiving end, yet takes so little time out of my day to do. I try for three things a day everyday!

    1. @Big Happy Buddha - Thank you for forwarding to your friends and your social networks as well. Please continue to rally the troops and involve as many people as you possibly can to view the video. No one should know the horrible feeling of going to bed with an empty tummy! Especially children. If we can do one simple thing today to help, it's (a) view this video first in it's entirety, and then forward it along to everyone we know and ask them to do the same!

      Thanks for always being a Good Egg and loyal supporter, it's readers like you that keep me motivated when my energy runs low!
