The theme of this year’s Blog Action Day is “The Power of WE –  a celebration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world…”  I’ve written a lot over the past few years about collaborative activities that I’ve been involved in.  So for my Blog Action Day blog I thought I would highlight some of these and what makes them so special:

Helping Babies Breathe:  A wide variety of stakeholders who put in countless hours around the world, working though communication, cultural and other challenges of global work, to help bring babies safely in to the world.

Ci2iGlobal:  Reaching out across the sectors to support social change agents in their work through knowledge sharing, the development of new tools and in other capacities. One of  Ci2iGlobal’s programs also uses the WE Acronym

Here’s to continued efforts to work together to do so much more than we could possibly do alone. “If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go with others.” ~ African proverb
