via $1 for $1 Match When You Donate To Protect Our Winters

Protect Our Winters (POW) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Founded by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones in 2007, POW turns passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates. POW leads a community of athletes, thought pioneers and forward-thinking business leaders to affect systemic political solutions to climate change.

The past decade has been the warmest on record. 2016 was the  hottest year ever recorded and 2017 is already on track top it. Meanwhile, the northern hemisphere has already lost a million square miles of spring snowpack since 1970—an area three times the size of Texas.  Snow levels are rising in elevation and winters are shorter. Climate change is already  affecting winter.

By 2007, pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones found that more and more resorts he’d always counted on for good riding were closed due to lack of snow. Something was clearly going on, and he felt the need to act. But he couldn’t find any organizations focused on mobilizing the snowsports community on climate—there was a gap between the impacts that climate change was already having on our mountains, and any organized action being taken to address it. And so Jeremy founded Protect Our Winters.

Soon afterwards, we brought on other concerned pro athletes, individuals, resorts and winter sports companies. Since then, Protect Our Winters has grown from a kernel of an idea into a worldwide network of over 130,000 supporters – a social movement on climate, designed to activate a passionate community and create the political will for meaningful action by state and federal policymakers.

And, while POW’s earliest supporters were renowned athletes and respected corporations, the movement quickly grew to include the wider outdoor sports community  as their playgrounds and livelihoods also depend on healthy winters.

This was the perfect group to give a national voice to outdoor sports, an industry that supports 7.6 million+ jobs and creates $887 billion in economic revenue. While the fossil fuel lobby may outspend environmentalists 20-1 in Washington, we share a passion that crosses party lines, a unique perspective that de-politicizes any climate discussion, and an industry with an economic impact that can’t be ignored.

Our key formula for engaging 60 million+ outdoor sports enthusiasts globally: relevance and authenticity. Though we can dress up for meetings, in the end we are pro athletes, dirtbags and diehards; for us, winter is not just a passion, but a way of life.

Right now, we have the luxury of worrying about how climate change might impact the outdoor industry. Right now, we get to help dictate the outcome rather than react to a foregone conclusion. If we sit on our hands for the next two decades, we won’t be worried about powder days, tourism or having fun. We’ll be worried about the stability of our environment, our jobs and our economy.

We All Need Winter.

ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL

Who is Archangel Jophiel?

Jophiel is listed as one of the seven principal archangels in Pseudo-Dionysius’s De Coelesti Hierarchia (“Celestial Hierarchy”), a 5th-century work on angelology that has been influential in Christian theology. It’s said that this work influenced Thomas Aquinas’s writings about the nine choirs of angels.

As the angel of beauty, Jophiel has a distinctly feminine energy. Her mission is to bring beauty to all aspects of life, including:

Thoughts

Archangel Jophiel can help you hold more positive viewpoints about your life, relationships, and circumstances.

Feelings

Filling your heart with warm feelings of gratitude and enjoyment.

Home and Office

Helping you reduce clutter and create a meaningful environment that’s conducive to work and relaxation.

Personal Self

Guiding you in all aspects of self-care, including beautifying yourself.

When To Call On Archangel Jophiel

Archangel Jophiel can help you quickly shift from a negative to a positive mindset. She’s also wonderful to call upon to heal misunderstandings with other people. Jophiel casts a wide net with her ability to bring beauty to your life, including helping with hair, makeup, and wardrobe.

When you ask Jophiel to help you beautify your life, you may feel compelled to start donating or selling unwanted items. I affectionately and respectfully refer to Jophiel as the “Feng Shui Angel,” after the ancient Asian art of room arrangement. Jophiel knows how much an organized environment affects our energy levels, mood, sleep patterns, and even health.

Jophiel’s halo color is deep fuchsia, so if you begin to see flashes or sparkles of hot pink light or if you’re suddenly attracted to this color, it’s a sign that this archangel is with you.

Archangel Jophiel’s Color:

Dark Pink

Crystal or Gemstone:

Rubellite or Deep Pink Tourmaline

Astrological Sign:

Libra, the lover of beauty and orderliness

In life you have those moments when there are no words necessary.  Nature is at its finest, the birds are chirping, the air is clear and clean, the sun is shining, and you know deep down that there are, in fact, Angels around at this time because nothing could be more beautiful and peaceful.  Those times are priceless!  Don’t you agree…

Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon

We hiked that day down into the Grand Canyon, across the canyon and back up.  Yes, it took us all day and into the early evening.  Wow, what a journey.  There were more miles than I was anticipating, but we did it.  We were prepared, had plenty of water and food.  Rob is always prepared for adventures, especially those that take him outdoors.  So, I wasn’t too worried.

May your days be filled with light, love and blessings.  Cheers my dear friends.
