IN ISSUE #19
A Note from Kim Clune…
With the passage of time comes inevitable change and I’m thrilled about the new changes coming to Be the Change for Animals.
When BtC was merely a breath of a thought, an idea without substance, I always envisioned a community-led animal advocacy project, one that would often change hands.
Let me share a quote from my proposal written before our website existed, a quote about the importance of the constant shift of energy and growth of a vision:
This not only keeps the movement from being directed by any one group, but it keeps fresh ideas flowing and fosters that larger sense of community … I want to create a vehicle to reconvene that larger sense of community. I want to carry the BtC torch and pass it forward.
There were many attempts to keep BTC fresh and in constant motion, but a single person to lead that charge tends to accentuate limitations rather than expand the effort. My wish for BTC becoming a strong movement is now finally coming to fruition, which means that my 2+ years launching this project has come to an end.
But this is no end.
Welcome to the beginning of the greatest social experiment that I have ever had the privilege to be part of. While I will forever remain a humble member of your community, it takes a great leap of faith to give up full control, to trust in my successors, and to believe that the BTC mission is one strong enough to survive. I assure you, I have that faith.
Please Welcome the New Triumvirate!
Vicki Cook, Kim Thomas and Peggy Frezon have devoted a great deal of time and love in developing this project by my side, and they’ve agreed to carry the BtC torch forward together. Their commitment has been unwavering and BTC could never have come so far without them. It is now time to watch them spread their wings and fly. And with the rest of our valuable volunteer crew by their sides, I have no doubt that they’ll take BTC to heights not yet seen.
Without further ado, I leave you – and the animals we fight to protect – in good, solid, capable hands.
Let the infusion of new life and breath begin!
Good things are coming…
