Don't forget




This time of year and with the economy as it is, everyone is very guarded with their money. I understand these are hard times but don't forget that others have it worse. I am thinking of the children in particular. There are causes on my sidebar that are dear to my heart. Yesterday I found another through my sweet friend Maithri, of The soaring impulse. For just $10.00 you can save many children's lives by buying a treated mosquito net for them. Think about it, open your hearts and wallets. We sometimes spend $10.00 on the most stupid of things. I do it, and then I ask myself where did those $10.00 go? So stop by Nothing But Nets Campaign and give a gift that will save a little child's life. It will be the best spent $10.00 dollars this season.

Yes, Yoli, a time when we have so much to be appreciative of...an opportunity to think of others, send support and love to as many as we can.

Especially knowing just malaria alone takes more lives than any other communicable disease.

Reaching out.
