It was July 24, 2014 when I created the Golden Rule Advocacy, finally taking concrete steps to fulfill the Horace Mann challenge I had accepted years earlier.
Because I had been publishing advertiser supported publications since 1976, there were many business owners I had come to know well enough to know they always did their level best to practice the Golden Rule.
Fortified by a belief in their genuinely good character I mustered enough courage to ask if they would be willing to sign the Golden Rule Certificate as a testament to how they treated everyone and as a way of encouraging others to take the Golden Rule Pledge. All said things like: "Yes, I would love to do whatever I can".
Additionally, they all donated what they could to help build the original Golden Rule Advocacy website and many advertised in the Book of Golden Rulers.
If you have not yet taken the Pledge we enthusiastically encourage you to help promote the Golden Rule by taking the pledge now! The world is a better place when we treat each other the way we would like to be treated and doing so is clearly the best path to peace for all humanity.
Those who act quickly will be included in the Hall of Founders.
If you have already taken the Pledge thank you!
We would love it if you invited others to take the Golden Rule Pledge.
To support the Advocacy’s efforts to encourage widespread adoption of the Golden Rule, please.
