Syndrome. The rights of disabled people are thoroughly explored and addressed here.
Lynda Appell Core DisABILITIES Resources........... is a Winter 2001 winner. In her well-researched informational site, Lynda states: "Knowledge is empowerment."
We agree! This site is all about disabled peoples' rights.
Michele Deradune's Home Page ..........a virtual wellspring of compassion, this site has won the award in Spring 2002.
2002...is not only compassionate in regard to those whose lives have been profoundly affected by drunk drivers, but also is
creative & original in its artistic excellence!
Gardener's Association..........Spring 2002....is a global peace-focused nonprofit located
in Northern California. A quote from their marvelously high-energy website of compassion: "
It is said that a butterfly can, with a flap of its wings, change the world and that the ripple it sends out can spawn a hurricane.
The butterfly initiative intends to do just that and become a catalyst for helping to co create a culture of world peace and
global harmony. The butterfly could be the key to what we call the 'paradigm shift'." Incredible organization; well-done
Millenium Women Network....Spring 2002......We discovered this website in December 2001 when a friend nominated our site for the Truth and
Spirit Award that they offer. Millenium Women Network is focused on empowering women, and they provide much inspiration and
encouragement for so many. Thank you for what you do, MWM!
In Action (KIA).....Spring 2002.....is more than just a website! Ruth B. is the webmaster here, and she also
created the KIA webring. Both website and webring encourage kindness on the World Wide Web and in real life--kindness towards
all of Earth's creatures. Although she is dealing with challenging personal health issues, Ruth manages to keep doing website,
webring, and newsletters, all for the sake of encouraging kindness. Thank you, Ruth!
Litware.......yet another Spring 2002 award winner! James Davidson is the webmaster here. Here's how he describes LitWare:"
....helping people with reading, spelling and literacy.
Rust never sleeps ..........Learning never ceases." We agree, and also would add that teaching, in any format or setting,
is certainly an act of compassion.

the community of Marseilles (Provence, South France) since 1964. According to webmaster Lionel A. Bouchon, the club's main
activities include supporting a Talking Book Library, Sihanoukville Orphanage, and Humani Terra International. In accepting

to hazardous substances in our community in an effort to help each other and especially those most vulnerable, children, the
elderly and those already sick." Here is yet another locale in cyberspace that embodies the kind of compassion we created
this award to recognize. Kudos, Barb!
