Mission Be Mindful Education Cultivates Character

Indiegogo push will fund compassion-sharing platform through workshops and trainingNew York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2014 -- Homes and schools used to be safe and happy havens. Carin Winter believes that they can become that way again. She decided to do something to raise up a standard against the assault on safe schools and a safe world. With her Be Mindful Education Program, she is turning the tide by developing this platform of mindful education; which involves reminding children that they effect the world around them and that others effect them. With a four-legged foundation centered upon the principles of fairness, generosity and the life's breath and compassion, she believes that a healthy vein has been tapped into to sway things in a positive direction.
