Founders and council
Heidi Little was standing in her kitchen when she heard " Make International Children's Month". She thought "as if there isn't already one" so she went to google, no children's month ? So she phoned her fellow council member and director of children's activities for Honoring The Circle Nancy Hummingbird http://honoringthecircle.moonfruit.com/ and said " Nancy I have been instructed to create and launch International Children's Month and there isn't one yet, what do you say we do it for May 2014 will you help me ?" and Nancy responds, "Heidi when spirit gives us something to do we don't wait until May 2014 we do it now. June is coming up next. Let's launch it for June 2013. June is International Children's Month". Heidi took it to Mrs Katie, her Pre K teaching colleague and it was grounded into reality that day with International Children Imagine Peace 2013. And so here we are. Heidi created the website, and holds space 24 hours a day 7 days a week for the children of the world to live happy, healthy, love filled, abundant, lives. From Heidi " I have no idea how to do this. I am. We are. " And that dear friends. Is the story. Love and light to the children of earth, for they are our future, and we borrow this planet from them. We swear our life to the light and the earth. And to the children. Heidi is a lifetime singer/songwriter hear here: www.heidilittle.com her conscious clothing company is One Clothing Unify and Here is an excerpt regarding her children's programs and platforms:
Our mission is "Children across the Planet in love, care and respect." And we believe every day is children's day, and that everyone is really a child of this planet, and of spirit. Heidi aims to support consciousness, spirituality, empowerment and creativity in all children. She is working on her master's in Education, and feels the performing arts are a great modality for teaching interdependence, self love, unity, community, and interconnectedness.

I have gained some of my greatest insights in to the human mind and human potential (both interpersonally and intra-personally) working directly with and learning from disadvantaged youth and ethnic groups in capacities surrounding health and wellness, mental aptitude and resilience and teaching young people to lead with the heart in an open and truthful manner. I have also been blessed to have had the opportunity to assist children in learning how to communicate differing aspects of self safely and openly by assisting them in understanding the feminine and masculine expressions of the human self and further creating a balanced and holistic understanding of what this means relationally.
Teaching children to remove bias or discriminatory filters from their world views has been a great passion of mine for some time and teaching children to collaborate with each other has been tremendously rewarding. Deeply exploring and working through their challenges in a collaborative manner has allowed me to understand the integral importance of open communication, reciprocal mentorship and authentic expression of self. The innate value and intrinsic wisdom that young children harbor is very much applicable to us as adults and there is great learning and teaching that can take place in this space – for being exposed to this over many years has cultivated a deeper appreciation for the wonder of the youth of today and the leaders of tomorrow; and for this I am grateful for.
