True Inspiration for a Monday: The Projects of Pippa Small

To say Pippa Small's projects inspire me is an understatement...She makes me feel that anything is possible with an open-heart and commitment to the belief that what you create and design can go beyond a simple transaction. She's taken big dreams and followed her heart to make them a reality, using her talent to inspire, contribute, give back...she is a role model in the finest sense.

Take a few minutes or promise me you will when you get the time...watch the short film about her project in Kabul, Afghanistan, and her projects working with Survival International to help the threatened Dhongria tribe of Orissa, India, read an article about her in the Telegraph, more videos about her work with tribes in Botswana and in Panama.

I've always had larger plans for Bonbon, and reading about what Pippa Small has done has only cemented my belief that I can do anything I put my mind to. Wow. How's that for a Monday Dose of Inspiration? For now, I am starting small, where I can...here... and here.
