" We get a lot of support from the network: resources, workshops, and training, connection, and encouragement. Seeing how powerful that is, I decided to step out of my local comfort zone and volunteer for Transition US and help them grow this movement. I also decided to donate generously. "

" Imagine what could be done if Transition US had the resources and staff to expand our efforts 2-fold, 4-fold, or even 10-fold! Imagine how many existing Transition Initiatives we could provide real support to, and how many emerging Initiatives we could nurture. Imagine flows of information, energy, action, and inspiration across the country! "
