  • Youthlinc - Serving Communities Near and Far

    Youthlinc Creates Lifetime Humanitarians One of the best ways to gain perspective on your life—its ups and downs, joys and obstacles—is to venture out of your own back yard. Stepping away, even for a short time, creates space around the things that vex you, and helps your problems seem a little more surmountable. In that space, in relationship to others, you might also remember that you’re not alone. People outside your home, your town and your country are not so different, despite how different our lives might appear. This realization is at the core of Youthlinc’s work, which could be...

  • HCI’s Wellness-Survivorship Center Heals Lives

    HCI’s Wellness-Survivorship Center Heals Lives Not long ago, a patient at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) confessed to the institute’s Wellness-Survivorship Center manager, Shelley White, that she accidentally missed her radiation appointment. The patient had spent the day going from appointment to appointment at the Wellness Center. She enjoyed herself so thoroughly in the Wellness Center that she simply forgot she had a radiation session scheduled for that day. And maybe that is the point. Patients with cancer do, of course, benefit from the life-saving traditional treatments HCI provides. But perhaps the many activities available in the Wellness-Survivorship Center can help...

  • Huntsman Cancer Institute Offers Comprehensive, Compassionate Care

    Huntsman Cancer Institute Improves Lives of Cancer Survivors and their Families By the time I graduated from high school, the mothers of two friends fell victim to cancer, my uncle died from pancreatic cancer, and my aunt miraculously survived aggressive, bilateral breast cancer. Since then—quite a few years now—I couldn’t begin to count the number of people in my life who have succumbed to cancer and the even greater numbers of people who have survived one or more bouts with cancer. All this is to say that every single one of us will be affected by cancer, probably many times...

  • Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah Gives TLC to Thousands

    Willard Bay Beaver Baby from Ogden Standard-Examiner Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah Saves Lives If you live in Utah, you may have traveled to the Farmington Bay Bird Refuge in February to spend time with the 800-1,500 bald eagles that winter there every year. You’ve probably also heard about the West Nile virus outbreak that claimed 27 of these magnificent raptors this season. Or maybe you’ve been following the Willard Bay beavers, six animals—one adult and five young ’uns—who were badly injured during a Chevron oil spill in March 2013. All these beings spent time in the loving...

  • Utah Food Bank: Feeding Utah’s Families

    Utah Food Bank Back in the Day Utah Food Bank:  Feeding Utah’s Families While driving to the Utah Food Bank to visit their main Salt Lake City facility, I was picturing a rather large, but cozy, food pantry where anyone in need could come and collect supplies at any time. Boy was I wrong. The Utah Food Bank, founded 108 years ago—how’s that for a yogically auspicious history?—is instead housed in an 86,000-square-foot warehouse that’s stacked to its atmospheric ceilings with shelves of well-organized boxes of every kind of food imaginable. The food bank’s Salt Lake City distribution center...

  • Children’s Justice Center - A Safe Haven for Kids and their Parents

    Children’s Justice Center I’ve driven by the house at least 100 times, perched as it is at the corner of the turnoff to City Creek Canyon, one of my favorite respites in Salt Lake City. It looks just like many of the houses in the Avenues neighborhood—modest and welcoming. You’d never know it houses a non-profit that communicates with the District Attorney’s office, Salt Lake’s 14 police departments, Child Protective Services, the Guardian Ad Litem’s office, Utah’s Attorney General and Primary Children’s Medical Center every day. And that’s the point. The building houses the Children’s Justice Center (CJC), the first...

  • TreeUtah and Hugger Mugger Plant Trees

    The HM Team Diggin’ It Hugger Mugger Joins TreeUtah in Restoring Redwood Nature Area Last summer we at Hugger Mugger chose the Utah nonprofit organization TreeUtah to be our beneficiary for the summer quarter. Now in its 23rd year, TreeUtah plants thousands of trees each year with the help of thousands of volunteers from around the state. On Saturday, April 13th, a group from Hugger Mugger hiked out to the Redwood Nature Area to help reforest the former wetland. The Jordan River used to flood the area every year, making it a natural wetland that was both a home...

  • Wasatch Community Gardens: Building Community from the Ground Up

    WCG's Kale Crop in March Wasatch Community Gardens:  Building Community from the Ground Up After a pretty white winter, spring is finally edging its way into the Salt Lake valley. Gentle rains replace the several feet of snow that blanketed our valley from December through much of March. Sunny jonquils dot the landscape and tulips are about to burst forth. For me, it’s past time to plant lettuce, kale, chard, carrots, beets and spinach. I dug up my beds last weekend. Long before my plots were ready for new seeds, I visited Wasatch Community Gardens (WCG). By the end...

  • Cancer Wellness House: Healing the Whole Community

    Cancer Wellness House:  Healing the Whole Community Back in the ’60s, when my aunt was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer (and lived with it for 25 years), and my uncle with pancreatic cancer, that information was for adults only. Cancer was one of those things you didn’t talk about, and we kids were never to mention it to the people living with it, or to their families. It was considered insensitive, even rude. Had I not accidentally overheard my parents talking about my uncle’s prognosis, I would never have known why or how he suddenly passed one day three...

  • TreeUtah Builds Community One Tree at a Time

    Alta, Utah TreeUtah Builds Community One Tree at a Time At the most essential level, the lives of all animals—including humans—on this planet depend on trees. We inhale the oxygen exhaled by trees, and trees inhale the carbon dioxide we exhale. Our lives are intertwined with those of the plant world. According to TreeUtah’s website, “through photosynthesis, trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. The average tree can clean up to 330 pounds of carbon dioxide annually while emitting enough oxygen for a whole family.” Trees are good for our mental/emotional health as well:  They calm our nerves, increase...
