Sunshine Bank: What a Concept!

“These lumins are about the positive things that we are up to in this world.”

The Sunshine Bank was presented today at City Forum by its founder James Togut.  James describes himself as a social entrepreneur.  On his business card, for The Good Life For All, his job title is Chief Imagination and Delivery Officer.  I love it!  Check out this video, then go check his websites.  This guy has it all figured out! I love that he tells this whole story with a dead straight face and doesn’t crack a smile till the end.

“We share between us the positive actions…and we get richer.”

Life is an amazing journey.

  2. How delightful. Our “hidden worth.”
    I love watching you and Lee interact on here. It always makes me smile. (I tried subscribing to Lee’s site, but couldn’t figure the darn thing out.) What a surprise, right? 🙂

      Hi Jennifer! Sorry you are having problems subscribing to my site. I’m even sorrier that I don’t know if I can help since I can’t figure a lot of this stuff out myself. If you have a Google Blogger account set up (which is very easy to do–I did it) then you can become a follower and receive notifications of new posts and be able to comment under your name. I have some “subscribe to” buttons but I don’t know much about them. You can always follow on Facebook, but since I am rarely on Facebook other than to see what my kids are up to, I don’t know too much about that either.

      Glad you commented though. And someday I’m going to come up with a guest post for Alison. I’m still trying to come up with something about the message she found on the beach but I’ve had too many things going of late.

      Alison, I haven’t ignored your requests!!! Just no post for foods that begin with the letter Y, or Z, or whatever letter it was.

  • Turnip Pie the Spanish-Way (not)
    I was invited to a multi-national potluck supper, and was brain dead with what to make.  When that happens, I usually fall back on Spanish Tortilla de Patates, but I had yellow turnips in my fridge – not potatoes.  I’ve…Read more ›
  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
