Be ONE of 108* Changemakers to SIT For Change

Activists, Organizers, Advocates...  the people on the front lines.  Whether full or part-time, on the streets or in the office, these are the people that work for change EVERY DAY.

When these agents of change are supported in living balanced lives of compassion, presence and sustainability, they’re empowered to be THE MOST EFFECTIVE THEY CAN BE in doing their work for change every day.

We're asking YOU to sit, knee-to-knee, as ONE of 108 ChangeMakers for 108 minutes straight and pledge or raise 108 dollars. Your pledge to SIT symbolically expresses your commitment to REAL change.

Your pledge of $108 helps launch the Transformative Change Fund to make that symbolic act a reality. The Fund helps activists cultivate their inner lives of compassion and presence so they can become more effective as agents of transformative change. The pledge of your friends, family and colleagues shows they stand behind you as you SIT for Change.

Individual Activist Register Participants:

Pledges made in divisible or multiples of 108 are great: $9, 18, 27, 36, 54, 108, 216, 540, and 1080.

It just takes each of us, ONE by ONE to Take a Stand and SIT for Change.
