This is an image of a collage in shades of pinks and purple, orange, yellow, blues and greens, there's an eye in the left center and above it it states "a look in her eyes", in the top it states "when you don't know what to believe, believe in yourself" there's a lips and nose in the center right, the words "dream" and "Love" and the statement "be you bravely" with a vareity of flowers. It's beautiful!Joan Jakel Collage Journal Cover

I recently gave a keynote presentation to a room full of big-hearted philanthropic leaders.  They were Chapter Leaders of the various 100 Women Who Care, 100 Men Who Care, 100 People Who Care, 100 Businesses Who Care and 100 Kids Who Care from all over the United States and Canada who attended the 100 Who Care Alliance Leadership Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.  These men, women and young adults are making significant contributions to their communities by creating giving circles, bringing the community together, discovering needs in the community and filling them by bringing awareness and financial resources to them. 

The 100+ Women Who Care Valley of the Sun chapter has three giving circles in Arizona: Ahwatukee, Scottsdale and the East Valley.  They’ve made significant contributions to their communities, on track to meet their goal of donating $500,000 in 5 years!  If you have a heart for giving and are interested in connecting with an amazing group of women who are making an immediate and positive impact in their community while committing only one hour every three months, check out 100+ Women Who Care Valley of the Sun and see how you can get involved. 

As part of my presentation, I created a journal for the conference attendees.  It’s a 22 page journal with my art, quotes, inspiration and prompts to guide your journalling process.  It was so much fun to create it and I couldn’t wait to share it!  The good news:  I decided to share it with all of you, as well!  You can click the below link and it will take you to a pdf of the journal, which you can download and save to your computer and print it for your personal use.  May it guide you to thoughtful reflection and joyful journalling!  Enjoy!!
