Skip a Starbucks Day


One of the things I love most about blogging is the powerful connections and friendships that are made. My life is so much richer with all of you in it. This group of writers and aspiring artists is one of the most generous collection of people I have ever seen. And it's time to be generous once again.

C.J. Redwine needs our help in order to make her long-time dream of adoption a reality. She and her husband have been waiting five years for a darling girl from China. They have saved and planned and decorated and filled their hearts with love to share. Costs have increased in the last five years. Economic times are hard. But we can't let her lose this priceless opportunity.

C.J. asks that we "Skip Starbucks for a Day" and donate $5 or more to her dream. I chose more. By allowing us to donate through Paypal, she has made it easy. I love Paypal! Please visit C.J.'s blog and give what you can.

To encourage us to visit and donate, C.J. is hosting a spectacular contest. The prizes are O.M.G. awesome. Seriously. So what are you waiting for? Go. Now. Give and enter.
