It’s time to get sustainable.
It’s our 20th birthday and my gift to everyone is the decision to make HK heartbeat sustainable.
Running HK heartbeat is a labour of love.
This is my passion and it takes loads of effort and energy and experience to handle everything on my own, gaining new coding and design and production skills and making new friends along the way.
To celebrate my birthday last month, I launched a fundraising campaign to transform heartbeat into a sustainable business.
Whether you are a long-time reader or relatively new member or a friend of mine, please support heartbeat with a contribution or get in touch to talk about corporate sponsorship.
I have relied on my consulting work to cover the overheads and your contribution will provide access to the resources (and assistance) required to serve the network and meet growing demand.
Sparked by my 9/11 email and launched that October, heartbeat now reaches 812 weekly subscribers, 1,112 daily website visitors (hundreds of calendar events and 1,968 directory listings) and thousands of social media followers in addition to 45,000 free copies of five print publications promoting community service and holistic wellness.
With everything happening in our world right now, the argument for natural products and services with a positive impact and zero waste has never been stronger. Going green is a growing trend and spotting the fakes is a job I could never have imagined back in 2001 but it’s becoming a real time sink for many.
From what I’ve witnessed over these many moons, I believe our planet is ready for less stress and more balance. It will be great for the next 20 years to be easier than the last twenty.
Thank you for your time and thank you for supporting heartbeat.
I am very resourceful and no amount is too large or too small.
