We've got an important Shine a Light action to share with you today, but first a quick update and a big thank you for participating on our last action:

In December, we asked you to Shine a Light on Ann P. and your response was overwhelming. Close to 1,000 people left messages of hope and encouragement for Ann as she continues to battle against cancer and overcome the challenges of M.S.  Ann wanted to share this with all of you:

When Randy Paynter implemented his idea to "shine one glorious sunbeam of collective love" on an individual, he knew that a few simple words, when spoken or written with a full heart, can make all the difference in the world to the recipient. Imagine the effect when multiplied hundreds of times!

As the recipient of one such glorious sunbeam of collective love, I am deeply moved by the kind words and love flowing in my direction.

It is every bit as glorious to be part of the sunbeam as it is to receive it. Shine on!


Today's Shine a Light is a message of love and gratitude. Hugh MacDougall has been a member of Care2 for the past several years and a long-time protector of nature and the Earth. Hugh passed away on January 28th leaving behind two children -- Ellen and Peter -- and many friends.

Hugh was a lover of travel and finding "people-free" places to explore. He grew up in Scotland, lived for several years in Australia and spent time in China, New Zealand and many other countries. In addition to his poetry, his images from these trips will be a lasting memory of his life and what he enjoyed most.

Please take a moment to post a comment of gratitude for Hugh’s kind devotion to the Earth, and we will make sure that these messages are shared with  his family.  Hugh will be greatly missed by his family, friends -- especially those that shared his commitment to Good, and all those that had an opportunity to be touched by his passion for Nature. Your words can mean so much to them during this difficult time. Thank you.

I'm so sorry to have heard the news that Hugh had passed away. The man he was has left the world, and certainly all that knew him, at a higher level. My dad passed away this past August after a courageous battle against a very aggressive prostate cancer, and although I greatly miss his physical presence, I feel his spirit, or energy force - whatever you want to call it - with me constantly and I know in this sense, he lives on. I wish you both, Ellen and Peter, a similar experience.

I was so sorry to hear that Hugh had passed away. The man he was has left the world, and certainly all his family and friends, at a much higher level. My dad passed away this past August after a courageous battle against a very aggressive cancer, and although his physical presence is greatly missed, I am constantly aware of his spirit or energy force - what ever you want to call it - being with me, and in this sense, he lives on. I wish you both, Ellen and Peter, a similar experience.

The ancient ones shared Hugh's home, Scotland, perhaps they are present for him. To his family and loved ones, may the soft music of flowing streams, the solidarity and patience of grandfather trees, the richness of the earth, the murmuring of gentle breezes, and the wisdom and teachings of the standing stones be always present for you, helping and blessing you at this difficult time.....Love...........Anna

When we are placed in this beautiful place called Mother earth we can be fortunate when we meet special people who stimulate our senses and bring us closer to what really matters in this life. I have been blessed by one on one communications with Hugh and he was to be my editor for my book. I was wondering why recently I was not able to contact him. Maybe some of you did not know ~~ not only he was a spiritual man, very talented, but among his talents he also was an editor by profession.

There is a beautiful song called "Calling all Angels" written and performed by by Jane Siberry. This comes to mind not because Hugh has need, but for US who need to be comforted for our physical loss. To understand that Hugh has not left us. He is among us and while he will not edit my book, his spirit will inspire me to complete it so all of us will benefit from his soul and spirit!

We feel you Hugh while you are probably running with the "Roos" of the Outback in the spirit world.

Thoreau wrote, "In wilderness is the preservation of the world," but he knew that that wilderness couldn't be preserved without people like Hugh MacDougall, whose tireless efforts on behalf of the natural world and whose uncompromising love of that world make him eminently worthy of remembering and, more importantly, of exemplifying. Though I didn't know Hugh in any way, I want to thank him in memoriam and will try to follow his example in this world.

I visited Hugh's blog and read some of his poetry and prose.
One senses a kind heart, and a love of people and words.
I wondered what I might say, and then this quote was the Care2 quote for the day, and it seemed right:
"A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity."
--Buddha.

Look for signs that your father is trying to comfort you - you will see these in birds that may start to visit your garden or butterflies, tingling feelings of love or just the feeling of his presence or smells and be assured that he was moved on with great love and he is happy. Read Angels in my hair by Lorna Byrne and it will give you great comfort. My sincere gratitude to your fathers dedicated life and we will continue to fight his corner. Deeply sorry for your loss but find comfort that you will be reuinted together again. Im sure his legecy will live on through your family and his followers xx

Mourn, but not for long - this time, too, shall come to pass. Hugh left with you a legacy to continue his work on 'earth', his 'hands' were required elsewhere! Celebrate his life and know that he is forever watching over and taking care of you! May your spirit revel in the higher calling, Hugh, and thank you for the time you spent on earth - your example will live on!

Our dreams are seed capsules
on the tree of life

which link us with it
deeply and creatively

This is an invitation
to open those capsules

let the dreams
touch each other
and bond

because reality
is made of dreams

may we share
the wealth
of wonderful dreams
that our life gives us

I thank the spirit of dreams
that lives in all of us

Thank you
