What will you do to Make the world more beautiful?

Miss Rumphius was just a young girl when her Grandfather told her, “You must do something to make the world more beautiful.”

Miss Rumphius inspires us to look beyond ourselves and make or do something that will be a gift to everyone.

We want to see your drawings, read your stories and hear your ideas about how you will “make the world more beautiful.” If you’d like to share your idea with us, have a grownup email it to thelupineladypnw at gmail dot com.
