“At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done– then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago.”

Recently I was privileged to sit and discuss the Pledge project with a person who since the 1960s has been active in their community and working for a future that works for everyone. We talked at length after he had visited the Pledge website.

What result would you like from The Pledge?
Global Community Unity
The Pledge Project is a global community unity movement. Our purpose is to inspire you to action, give you the tools, and the support to enable you to succeed in changing the world. We are all part of our one global community and it is crucial that we act that way. When our community unites and we support the other members in our community, we will arise as a new, combined power which will thrive without the need for force. Changes at the community level are both realistic and significant. We can make the essential global changes one community at a time, all at once.
Please be involved in The Pledge Project immediately at the global level by taking the Pledge and being part of our virtual Community Unity Team (CUT) through the CUT Forum. At the local level you can offer your passion, expertise, or services in the creation of a CUT in your town using our “tool set”. Share this possibility with others and pass it on!
