Among the Matrix Award Winners I was privileged to meet on Monday, 4/23, was Arianna Huffington. [Nancy (at far right) with Arianna Huffington (in white)]. So many amazing women! We need to have more “summits” like this one!

Enjoy . . .

ms_mb.jpg What a month! And especially, what a week it’s been! We have been going to Earth Day events, and getting the EA postcard out everywhere. Martha Shaw is a wonder, and Earth Advertising is the only green agency I know of in the USA. (She was the first in LA; now she’s launching in New York City). We went to the Knitting Factory Saturday, as the music that night was all part of Green Apple Events. Then she went to Mayor Bloomberg’s announcement [see top photo of Martha and Mike B] at the Museum of Natural History about how he’s going to “green” NYC. Now EA is up and running, and the business is coming in! Take a look at to get an idea of Martha’s background.

Zipcars; Green Apple Cleaners; Ben’s (of Ben & Jerry) Sun & Earth products; Stonyfield Farms; it’s all been done and there’s more coming! Take a good look at how you are using green ideas in your life – and join us in the revolution!

lsavini-nh-matrix1.jpgHere is a photo taken of me (on the right) at the AOL after-party (about 12-15 hours after the day began). Laura Savini was a guest (from WLIW / Public Channel 21), and obviously we were having a lot of fun.

It was one of the best events NY-WICI has ever put on, and I am proud to have been a part of it! (The white flower was my “badge” – it told the 1500 people there that I was one of the team that put on the show. Of course, NO one was running Rosie O’Donnell, but that’s another story).

Even the celebs (Barbara Walters, Arianna Huffington, Thelma Golden, Anna Deavere Smith, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar, Lisa Caputo, Hillary Clinton, Joan didion, Nora Ephron, Susan Lyne, Martha Stewart, Pamela Fiori, Danny Meyer, Rupert Murdoch, Cindy Adams, Sade Baderinwa [ABC-TV / NYC], Gail-of-Oprah-fame, Judge Judy, and Lord-knows-who-all) were obviously having a ball. ALL of the winner & presenter speeches were delightful and moving, and I wouldn’t have missed a minute of it for the world.

The scholarship winners were fabulous, too! (And that’s really the point!)

So I’m passing a bit of the fun on to you.
