A lot of people have written to us, asking to pause their Year of the Planet.
So we have decided to put the whole campaign on pause. Just until our lives return to some semblance of normal.
Of course, we will still be trying to live as sustainably as we can, and being kind to the planet, and no doubt you will too.
We know some of you will be upset by this. We are too.
But we need to use this time to help people through this, that we’re all experiencing, right now.
We’ve gathered the thoughts and learnings of some of the people we admire and seek guidance from, to try to figure out what we all need and what we can all do to help each other through this time.
To endure, to find relief and a little ray of hope, and perhaps to emerge in some way with new perspective.
Because through all the loss, all the fear and uncertainty, this is a chance to reset. To live differently. To evolve…
And so we are so very proud and just a little bit nervous to present to you…
One Million Butterflies.
It’s a global project, born of adversity, but with the potential to change our lives, and our world, for good. We hope!
Not unlike Year of the Planet, we guide and support you through 12 weeks of simple but empowering actions that you can build into your daily life.
Each week is themed. A week to grieve. A week of connection. A week of kindness. A week of truth, and a week of letting go. Giving, learning and love. Building, dreaming, forgiveness and joy.
This is not another burden to take on. This is relief. This is respite from this storm. This is an invitation to be part of something needed. To work through this, together.
You are welcome to join us. We would love that.
We would like to see this spread around the world, to bring us all together and help us through this time.
Please have a look, if you like, at onemillionbutterflies.org
We will keep in touch, and when we’re all ready, we’ll unpause Year of the Planet, and continue as we were. Hopefully with even more hope for the planet.
With all our hearts,
André, Kat, Mikey, David + Josh
