Season’s Greetings ~ Warm Wishes for a Peaceful 2014!

The holiday season and close of the year are often a time for reflection. As 2013 comes to a close, we have been reflecting on what a dynamic year this has been for our newly established nonprofit, the Center for Global Awareness, and the many things we have to be thankful for.

The holiday season and close of the year are often a time for reflection. As 2013 comes to a close, we have been reflecting on what a dynamic year this has been for our newly established nonprofit, the Center for Global Awareness, and the many things we have to be thankful for.

After a slow start to 2013, we are thankful that the year has ended on a very productive and positive note:

  • We added two new books to our publication offerings – The Global Economy: Connecting the Roots of a Holistic System and Financial Literacy: Wall Street and How it Works.
  • Our other popular publications include Waves of Global Change: A Holistic World History; Waves of Global Change: An Educator’s Handbook for Teaching a Holistic World History; and International Folk Tales.
  •  We exhibited at our first professional conference, the National Council for the Social Studies in St. Louis in November. Denise’s workshop was well-attended and we had a steady-stream of visitors interested in our books and holistic approach.
  • We welcomed the addition of Sarah Wilkinson to our team as the program director in August and Mia Beurksens, a professional graphic designer in New York City, to design our marketing materials. 

As a holistic, globally-focused nonprofit, we provide educational resources and professional services for educators and students grades 9-university. We have found that our approach to these global topics is indeed groundbreaking and ushers in a paradigm-shifting change to how world history is taught and how the global economy is understood; it also enhances essential global awareness skills for both educators and students. By using our books, students will be better informed about crucial global topics such as the economy, world history and the environment and have a useful framework to help them put this information into a larger context. When learning makes sense to students, they are inspired to become more involved in their learning and act upon their heart-felt convictions.

We have accomplished a great deal for a small nonprofit operating on a shoestring budget. But we still have a long way to go. Your donation can help realize CGA’s goal of bringing a more holistic, globally-focused systems perspective to students and educators.

We feel strongly that one of the most important contributions we can make in creating a more peaceful, sustainable and equitable world community is it to educate our youth about these topics.  We are dedicated to inspiring youth with a holistic global perspective that will prepare them to meet the challenges of their time. Please join us in the effort.
