Happy Earth Day! Check out our "Green Challenge"
Today I was honored by being asked to present in front of approximately 1200 elementary school students at 3 different assemblies. Needless to say, it has been a very busy day :) But, one that made me feel proud to be a part of the movement.
So you might ask what little old me had to say to 1200 students? Well, believe it or not, I have picked up a few things in the 118 episodes that we have done, and 30 of those have been specifically on "green" topics. Wow, has it been that many? Hard to believe. Anyway .... what I like to tell kids is that they are the change of our future. They are the ones who hold the power in their hands. I talk about what I like to call, AHA! That is becoming Aware, changing Habits, and becoming Ambassadors of our environment. This is something that I strive to do in my own life. I figure I had better be someone that can "walk the talk." :) Through each green episode that we film, I increase my awareness of the problems and solutions that are out there. After I learn, I challenge myself to gradually change my habits to help lessen my footprint on the planet. And now, I am proud to be an Ambassador of the environment and share everything that I have learned with today's youth. And let me tell you, they totally get it! To them, it is not an overwhelming task. Being the change is absolutely attainable! I challenge you as well, young or old, to be the change.
Want to win a cool prize? We are hosting a "Green Challenge" to all the students and to all of you as well. Send an e-mail to CuriosityQuest01@yahoo.com and tell us what you have become aware of, how you have changed your habits and how you are an ambassador of our environment. We will choose the best letter and will send you an awesome Curiosity Quest gift package. Be The Change and tell us how you are doing it. It is that simple.
In the meantime, take care of Mother Earth and do your part :) And as always Stay Curious!
