Meet our Change Agent of the Week: Mestre Acordeon
All funds generated from this will contribute to the development of financial sustainability for Projeto Kirimurê. Projeto Kirimurê (PK) is a social program that offers an alternative perspective on life for at-risk youth between the ages of four and sixteen from the neighborhood of Itapuã, Bahia, Brazil. The "Kirimurês" are offered free Capoeira and music classes, storytelling, literacy training, psychological support, and family counseling. 40% of the Kirimurê children have been with the program since its beginning in 2006 and their lives have changed dramatically. PK has taken children off the streets and given them hope for a brighter future. Love of Capoeira is what draws them in and keeps them engaged. Some of the older children are already helping the youngsters, assisting the teachers of Capoeira and other activities. And these Kirimurês have hopes of someday attending college.

Shut Up & Love
"But what does that even mean" was the question I often retorted. "I mean, I'm here right? Isn't that enough??" [Insert significant other looking at me like an idiot here]
So, maybe I was missing something.... I used to think I was displaying my love by the things I did or said. I thought that if I could buy something, say something, or do something, my grand offering of love was complete. I mean, superficial love has value right??? hahaha
Now don't get me wrong, I had experienced those "deep feelings" of love (tummy butterflies, fluttering heart, and pure joy) but I never thought that my significant other would notice if those feelings of love were absent.... I mean that's crazy talk right?!?
Actually, NO, that's not crazy. According to cutting edge research being performed by the institute of HeartMath, the human heartbeat actually generates a measurable electromagentic field. This electromagnetic field has been scientifically studied and proven to have an effect on surrounding electromagnetic fields of other organic structures/substances. Guess what modulates our heart's electromagnetic field? Feelings of EMOTION. Different emotions make changes not only on our physiology but our electromagnetic field!!
Hence, your significant other CAN feel your love and/or NOT feel your love. The "I love you's" won't mean a thing if you have "lost that lovely feeling" (shameless Righteous Brothers plug). This love thing is much bigger than what we do, think, or say. Do yourself a favor, and Shut Up and Love.
With "deep" love,
