Every day is a miracle

Every day is a miracle

Green Renaissance

We must teach our children to smell the earth, to taste the rain, to touch the wind, to see things grow. Our children have always decided the future. Let them choose one that aligns with our earth.  “Encourage your kids to look for nature everywhere you go. It’s the weed breaking through the pavement, It’s the leaves forming small clumps along the side of the road. It’s the sky at any given time of the day or night. It’s the wind doing what it likes to your hair. Look around, it won’t take long to find it.” ~Penny Whitehouse

Keep connecting to the magic this Christmas, with Vodafone. #KeepConnecting Merry Christmas Marlowe, love Uma A broken leg means Marlowe can’t go sledging with his sister Uma. He won’t get to experience the first sprinklings of snow… not from outside, at least. The immersive augmented reality experience, with the feeling of haptic to transfer touch – powered by the real-time speed of our 5G network – show us that the future’s literally at their fingertips. With his TESLASUIT and his virtual reality headset, and with Uma’s 360-degree camera and her Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, means Marlow can enjoy the magical moments Christmas has to offer… even from inside. We’re celebrating the connection between siblings, and the way tech can bridge the physical gaps between us, now and in the years to come. Some of the tech in this story won’t be available for this Christmas. But it’s not too far away. Connect to the magic of Christmas This Christmas we’re committed to helping you #keepconnecting to the ones you love, and the moments that make Christmas special.

Give a little love

Give a little love

source : John Lewis & Partners

We believe that the world would be a better place if we all gave a little more love. So this year we’re celebrating kindness, whether large or small, showing how each and every act of love has a positive impact on the world around us, as we pass them on to others. Together with Waitrose & Partners we’re hoping to raise £4m for our charities plus £1m for local charities. FareShare, helps those facing food poverty, and Home-Start, which works with parents who need support ❤️. The charities will use these donations to provide food, comfort, emotional support and advice to families who need support this Christmas.

“Every single day I live life. It is living today. It’s not about ‘someday I’ll do this’… that may never come. You do it now.’

Joel made a decision to move out of the city, and create a more natural way of life for himself. And the positive benefits on his health have been incredible. Take a listen to his story…

There is no greater gift than that of giving of one’s time and energy to help others, without expecting anything in return. “What you receive is just wonderful. You don’t receive it in money. Just the pleasure of seeing their faces.” – Peggy
