“It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'Well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.'” - Maya Angelou
In this time when many mistakes are brought to the surface, we honor forgiveness and loving our dirt. We cannot change what has happened, but we can choose to do better. Thanks to your support of DIRT, today we are giving $500 to the Global Fund for Women.
The name DIRT came to us as an adaptation on a saying which was printed on a bag of chips: "stop treating our soil like dirt." But what if we treat our dirt like soil? What if we help those which are in need, so that they can grow? There is something to letting things go when they are no longer needed, but there is also something to giving things what they need to really thrive.
We say LOVE YOUR DIRT as a nod to forgiveness. A playful phrase, which stems from a difficult, yet simple concept. In order to be here now, all that is has to be. That does not mean what is has to repeat. We learn from the past and do our best in the present. We believe when you open yourself to this concept, you will find a deep love. LOVE YOUR DIRT and grow.

A storm is raging in the Atlantic Ocean with its sights set on the Carolinas. Cities empty of the humans that normally inhabit them. Before the storm hits there is a most unusual calmness. Before the winds rage and rain falls.
There is something in this moment. It almost gives a false sense of what is to come, a calm before the storm.
