“When women gather together, sharing stories is what we naturally do. This is how we learn and find encouragement, allies and ideas.” Jean Shinoda Bolen
As of Wednesday, November 26th, 2008 See Jane Do is official. We will launch our radio program on KVMR at 1:00 P.M.
Several months ago my five year old daughter asked me, “Why are we killing our earth?” My mind was racing with questions so I took a deep breath and said, "What can you and I do to heal our planet?" We discussed some of the things we could do and are already doing as a family (i.e. recycling, eating organic food, and using compact fluorescent light bulbs) but I realized I needed to do more. I had to put my passion into positive action. The result is See Jane Do.
For Leta, following the success of her business and having recently separated from her husband, she found herself as a single mom relying solely on her own ingenuity. As an artist, Leta believes multi-media is the future mode of communication and will bring people and communities together to improve the overall quality of life.
See Jane Do is a multimedia program capturing the stories of everyday women doing extraordinary things for the planet. As the hosts we take “green” tips that suggest what we should do to improve our planet to the next level of what we can do. As mothers, we are on a quest to discover and incorporate sustainable solutions that are created by and/or implemented by women. We’ll explore what’s really doable for everyday women. What are the triumphs? What are the challenges to living an eco-friendly life? Most important, what are the incredible stories behind the women that are actually doing their part to make a difference?
Both of us hear again and again from involved women that if we all do our part we can truly make a difference. The women Leta and I interview are models for change who are leading the way with sometimes simple steps to a greener planet.
On our next episode we hurry up and slow down with Slow Food Nation director Anya Fernald. We discover a school lunch that kids line up for with renegade lunch lady Chef Ann Cooper and Jane gets her hands dirty with farmer Jo McProud.
We can’t wait to share the stories of the incredible women who are truly making a difference for the better. What’s your story? How do you put your passion into action? I hope you’ll share with us on our blog or at SeeJaneDo@kvmr.org
