Generosity Philosophy Podcaster Speaks at Salem Public LibraryKim Trumbo, creator of the Generosity Philosophy Podcast will appear at Salem Public Library on July 14 at 7 p.m. in Anderson Room A. This program is free and open to the public.
Each Generosity Philosophy episode focuses on an individual or group that has either identified a need in their community and taken action to address it, or recognized an opportunity for positive action and found a way to make it happen. Kim describes her subjects as "heroes who live to give". Since her weekly podcast launched in 2013, she has interviewed nearly 100 people who have found creative ways to benefit others. Her interview subjects have included developers of websites and apps, individuals who have found ways to repurpose everything from hotel soap to funeral flowers, people who have found ways to distribute clothing and other goods to those who need them most, and many more. Some of her subjects live near her Aumsville home, while other hail from across the globe. All have made their communities and the world better through ideas put into action. The Generosity Philosophy podcast is available for free download on iTunes and Stitcher.
Kim will talk about the lessons she's learned from the many people she has interviewed for her show, and there will be time at the end of her presentation for Q & A. She is also the author of a children's book, George, the Generous Giraffe. Copies of her book will be available for sale and signing. More information on Kim's projects can be found at her website, www.generosityphilosopy.com.

The Northwest Hub provides access to inexpensive transportation by reclaiming used bikes.
The Northwest Hub is a not for profit full service bicycle shop, bike reclamation program and training center. Proceeds from our cycling center directly serve neighbors in need of transportation who "purchase" a bike through service to our community. Through recycling, reclamation, training and redistribution, the NW Hub provides affordable services and sales to the general public and free bicycles, locks, parts, repair training and vocational rehabilitation to adults and at-risk youth.
We recently received backing from a local business to cover the rent and utilities of a retail space for one year. However, we are still in need of further tooling and supplies to train and mobilize our community in need and make bicycles accessible to all, whatever their income. Every $100 donated enables us to train, empower, and mobilize one person in need of skills and transportation.
Please help us reach our goal!
