Thank You Women's Fund!

 Last week Goldie Hawn graced Columbus, Ohio thanks to the Women's Fund of Central Ohio's annual Keyholder event. What an amazing night! Goldie talked about her book, A Lotus Grows in the Mud, where she shares her uplifting reflections of her life
in and out of the spotlight. It's
a rare perspective, for sure. She also shared the work she's done establishing the Hawn Foundation to develop a curriculum for kids
in school that nurtures their mindfulness. This roughly includes
their perception of happiness, their ability to handle stress, and their ability to build & maintain relationships. Not a small challenge by any means, but a well-proven approach that addresses concerns shared by many of us. By engaging experienced neuroscientists, educators and psychologists, she challenged them (and us) to provide better education & awareness for our kids so they have the skills necessary to create a more peaceful & sustainable future for us all.

Apparently it takes an Oscar-winning actress to not only call attention to these problems but also drive the collaboration to consider a solution. After reading her insightful book, it comes
as no surprise that she sees children's happiness as the key to unlocking our future progress. It's a fascinating and brilliant approach. It supports my belief that our future progress is inherently linked to supporting the passions of women and their ability
to connect with others to create a more sustainable world.

That's why we're such big fans of the Women's Fund, who grants money for women & girls in Central Ohio. They seek to drive social change by empowering women & girls. They are supporting our community in one of the most efficient ways possible. And they inspire us with icons like Goldie Hawn!

Thrive Theory is grateful to have been a part of that beautiful, Golden night last week. The Women's Fund asked to give Thrive Theory to their most dedicated volunteers, and as their appreciation gift to Goldie as well. To the Women's Fund, a big thank you for supporting Thrive Theory and sharing our message with so many amazing women in Columbus! We look forward to another inspiring event next year!
