Change Yourself - Change the World

As a Holistic Wellness Center we cannot ignore the world around us. 

While we understand the creative power in taking responsibility for our personal wellbeing on a mind-being-body level and the way it has a beneficial ripple effect not only on the people in our lives, but on reality as a whole – there is more that we can do. 

We are part of a wider whole, part of a larger world. When we support change in ourselves for the better, we support that larger whole to change in a positive way too. In the same way – if we invest in change in our external reality, it will help us thrive in return. 

Both go hand in hand.

To underline, bring awareness to and substantiate this interrelation, we’re launching a Pay-it-Forward initiative here at Space of Grace:

Going forward, a portion of every payment made on Space of Grace will be donated to an organization that is creating change in the world!

With every payment, you’ll be asked to select one of the following initiatives to support. You can make the same selection each time, or alternate between them, the choice is yours!

Why these organizations?

 

Each of the organizations we've selected to be part of this initiative…

    • …has an extensive track record of actual work done.
    • …has expertise in their field and adopts a hands-on approach.
    • …is a reputable organizations with an international reach that remains committed to local impact.
    • …tackles issues of such a nature that their efforts are felt far beyond the inputs they provide.
    • And lastly, our team resonates with each of their visions and goals as pressing matters in the times of today:

 

Generosity.org

Providing clean water for drinking and sanitation needs.

Imagine a world where children no longer become ill due to unclean water. Where kids can spend their time attending school instead of walking to collect water. Where women in developing countries have the time to start businesses. Where clean water is a right, not a privilege. Where humanity decides to help humanity. Where generosity changes us all. Our Vision is to see the clean water crisis end in our lifetime.

The Ocean Cleanup

Cleaning up our oceans and rivers.

The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization developing and scaling technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. To achieve this objective, we have to work on a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean and doesn’t go away by itself. This goal means we plan to put ourselves out of business – once we have completed this project, our work is done.

Give Directly

Direct cash transfers to the world’s poorest.

GiveDirectly is a nonprofit that lets donors like you send money directly to the world’s poorest households. We believe people living in poverty deserve the dignity to choose for themselves how best to improve their lives — cash enables that choice.

World Literacy Foundation

Doughnut Economics Action Lab

Reimagining the economy from the ground up.

An economic transformation that promotes human flourishing for all on a thriving planet is irrefutably and urgently needed. Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is part of the emerging global movement of new economic thinking and doing that is rising to this challenge. Our aim is to help create 21st century economies that are regenerative and distributive by design, so that they can meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. We call this Doughnut Economics.

Passionate as we are, we wish we could ‘do it all’ – support individuals, bring about systemic change, heal the Earth, nurture and educate the children, provide relief to the poor, … Unfortunately there’s only so much time in a day, and only so much you can dedicate yourself to if you wish to do a thing well. No, we cannot do it all, but we CAN support those who are already doing it, those people whose hearts beat for a specific purpose and already have the infrastructure, the resources, the connections to do it well. 

Every investment you make in yourself at Space of Grace, to heal, to change and to create the best version of yourself, aligns with hands-on support to heal, to change and to create a better world. 

Let’s support each other in whatever way we can to bring about the changes we wish to see, for ourselves, for each other, for all life on Earth. 

 

We're excited to continue serving you and thank you for joining us in this initiative!
