You Must Be the Change You Want to See in the World


In a departure from my usual frivolous nonsense, I have to put this out there for two reasons.

 Reason 1: It will help a little girl who really needs it.

This is Albina.

"Albina is an orphan in Eastern Europe. Because she was born with Down Syndrome, she is considered a burden to her society, an outcast to be hidden away."

This little girl lives in an orphanage where she has lived without love of family or enough care to meet her needs. She doesn't have someone to hold her and comfort her when she is scared, lonely, or sad. She is a poor baby we can help!

Reason 2: Someone will be winning an awesome camera!

Who doesn't want to feel good about helping someone and have the chance to win an awesome paparazzi machine?

No one, that's who. 

Here's the deal:

1. Go here.

2. Donate $10. (Every dollar donated will be matched by a private family, up to $5000!)

3. Post a comment on that website (one if you link it on fb and another for blogging) and you're  in the running.

It's a chance to do something wonderful for someone who deserves it.

P.S. Exactly 11 minutes after I posted this, I got a call from my doctor confirming that I do not have to do any more follow-up tests- I am 100% in the clear from cancer scares! YAY!

I heart Karma.
