As we quickly approach the end of 2015 and are faced with a tremendous amount of global tragedies, GWEN would love for you to donate to a great cause AND to help promote public safety!
With the current state of affairs around the world, we feel it is imperative for EVERYONE to be equipped with the best solution to let our loved ones know that we are safe.
PLEASE consider your 4th quarter tax donation for 2015 to be given to Global Women’s Empowerment Network and our GWEN Alert V.2.
GWEN Alert was one of the first safety mobile apps to the market back in 2012. GWEN 5 allows for you to upload your top 5 trusted people into the GWEN Alert. If you are ever in danger, then a one button click sends them a pre-set text that you are in trouble with a GPS locator.
Anyone with a smart phone should have this app, as we offer the GWEN Alert as a FREE download, so that it’s affordable for all.
- Campus safety (1 in 4 young women are sexually assaulted annually) – plus recent stats of campus mass-shootings
- People who travel alone, or late at night – WITH CURRENT GLOBAL INCIDENCES THIS IS A NECESSITY
- Online dating
- Domestic Violence
WHAT’S NEW FOR VERSION 2 – We are taking the GWEN Alert to the next level.
The GWEN Alert2 will capture footage of the perpetrator, through a VIDEO COMPONENT built into the app. Every 20 seconds video is captured and is sent to the cloud. This assures footage capture, in case your phone is destroyed or stolen during any altercation. Visual proof will protect the victim and help stop, or solve a crime.
So… what is our ask? We are looking to raise $20,000 to update the app. This offers you a tax-deductible donation to Global Women’s Empowerment Network GWEN (501c3) #80-0830394.
EASY TO DONATE: Go to: GLOBAL WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT NETWORK
Here are a few links to videos (PSA) that were created, to illustrate the use of the GWEN Alert:

Also, please consider donating your used mobile phones. GWEN donates to shelters for battered women.
PLEASE FORWARD THE LINK FROM THIS BLOG TO YOUR LOVED ONES!

LodeStar? Is that even a word? YES! The meaning of a LodeStar is one who serves as an inspirational role model or guide.
When I found the word LodeStar and read its meaning, I knew it would be the perfect name for my talk show on GWENNetwork T.V. “LodeStar Kids” showcases amazing teens and tweens who are taking positive action on local, national and global issues impacting their world and future generations. LodeStar Kids motto: Respect for all people, animals and the planet!
I have had the honor of interviewing some extraordinary LodeStar Kids in the past 6 months. Meet a couple LodeStar Kids, today, and read about their causes and learn how YOU can get involved!
9-year-old James donates his time and hard earned allowance to Beagle Freedom Project, an organization that advocates ending Animal Testing on Beagles.

10-year-old Macie has designed and created dolls from winter gloves. Not only are these dolls one of a kind, but also all proceeds from their sales goes to the organization, Children of Peace Uganda. Children of Peace Uganda helps rehabilitate former child soldiers by offering them a holistic approach to empowerment. Some of these approaches are vocational training, art therapy and organic farming.

With their schedules jam-packed with extracurricular activities, technology at their fingertips and a whole new breed of school bully, sometimes a child can begin to feel powerless in their own life. It’s more important now than ever to empower children by giving them the tools they need to remember their essential identity and the personal strength to achieve their goals and become their own role models for positive living. A peek behind the scenes at the filming of GWENNetwork’s CosmiKids TV and a visit with our friends across the globe through CosmiKids Connect is all about empowerment, self-care and emotional intelligence (EQ).
The following four tips featuring incredible CosmiKids help us all remember what’s important and to keep EQ Central in our lives.
1. Celebrate their Unique Power
The things that make them different from others are their greatest assets. Encourage them to take pride in their individuality.

2. Because I’m Happy
Surround yourself with positive people, engaging in activities that give you energy, while avoiding people, activities and foods that drain your energy or negatively upset the balance in your life.

(Photos: CosmiKids Connects with lots of smiling & happy faces at AgapeLive.org and their summer Freedom School. They generate a love of reading in Los Angeles youth. )
Reading is freedom! They provide free and healthy meals, family support and increased social awareness. Agape stops the cradle to prison pipeline. Statistics proves reading and creative expression reduces violence and the debilitating effects of poverty. The Agape Freedom School raises self-esteem and creative expression for youth ages 5 and up. Follow them on Twitter: #AgapeCDFFS
Respect your child’s need for down time in between or after a jam-packed day of activities by building it into their daily routine. Encourage activities that allow your child to breathe and relax — whether it’s free play, yoga, meditation or just taking a break from technology.
(Photo: CosmiKids’ Ashlynn takes a breather inside one of the sense tents at the Vibration Station. Energy is everything! Take a breather!)
(Photo: As part of our CosmiKids Connect segment, we tune in to our friends at New Hampshire’s HunterSchool.org and enjoy a glimpse of their down time activities or lack thereof. Simple quiet time and yoga soothes the soul and quiets the energies of the mind, amidst their otherwise busy day at school.)
(Photo: Hunter charts the energies that their students resonate. It becomes a mirror to reflect their positive vibes, supportive actions and peaceful demeanor. They learn how to regain their center by breath work, focus and affirmations. Chilling from time-to-time helps balance one’s energies.)
4. Stellar Performance
Focusing on your child’s positive behaviors and achievements and rewarding them with praise often breeds more positive behaviors and empowers them to make better choices while building their self-esteem. Reprimanding your child for negative behaviors may reduce negative behaviors, however it does not increase positive behaviors and can be damaging to the child’s developing sense of inner confidence and strength. Serving as a mirror to reflect your child’s positive actions, abilities and qualities help them to see themselves as valuable, talented and capable individuals. The way you teach your child to behave positively also sets an example for your child to teach their peers to treat them with respect and kindness.

CosmiKids Connects with friends Indio and Mio and their positive playtime at La Beltrana Intentional Permaculture Farm and Homeschoool in Buenos Aries, Argentina. They have been chasing butterflies all summer. This day Luis Alberto (their father) made them a net to catch butterflies. The small birdcage that you see on the orange-wheeled cart was to be a home for them. They went outside to search for butterflies yet couldn’t find a single one. The weather was sunny but since its autumn in South America now, its not that warm. They talked with their mom about why they couldn’t find any butterflies. They went inside the house and looked up on Internet about how butterflies live, what they like, when they fly and when they don’t. They learned a lot about something they love – butterflies.
