If any of you caught last Sunday’s 60 Minutes, you will have seen a story about this organization. It was featured as a result of a larger story about a young returning veteran who committed suicide. So often, we do not see the scars of war unless they are obvious – broken bones, burns, a missing limb. The shock of being in combat has to be something from which recovery can be tenuous. Ride2Recovery is a program designed to help our wounded vets to help themselves through cycling. Your donations are always necessary and always welcome. Please visit their site and learn more about them. I did, and I’m certainly glad that I did!

Meet Carlo Garcia. He is not rich, but the spirit by which he lives makes him wealthy beyond description. He is making a difference through small but significant ways, by giving each day to a charity. He does not have a vast inheritance, nor does he have a seven-figure salary. Please follow the link to the article about him, and think about how you might make a difference as well. In this country, there should be no one hungry, no one homeless, no one desperate to eek out an existence. We can all make a difference. I wish all of you contentment and peace, and the good health to enjoy it now, and in the coming year.
Yes, indeed! Happy almost Birthday to Spooky Time Jingles! We celebrate our 1st birthday, or anniversay, however you choose to look at it, coming up on July 13th. Take a look at these specials!
Imagine this! There are TONS of door prizes for our big event, and when you purchase an item, you multiply your chances to win! And, this will be a bonus for the ASPCA and for local animal shelters around the country. Our artists are designating pieces, a portion of whose sales will go to this effort to help animals.
All of my pieces this month will salute our furry friends, and here are a few peeks at what I will be offering! Take a look, and join us tomorrow night around midnight Eastern time! Happy Birthday/Anniversary! YEAH!
See you soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I read this story online this morning, it gladdened my heart. We don’t hear enough about real people who make real differences, and this article which is online from Newsweek magazine simply lets all of us know that one person always has, always can, and always will make a difference. Read this delightful story of Pete Peterson, the son of a Greek immigrant, who made his fortune by establishing the Blackstone company, and now would like to share his wealth.
Yes, it is true. There are so many ways you can make a difference in someone else’s life, thereby making a personal difference in your own life. If you look on my blog under Places You Should Know About, I have listed some organizations which I feel are worthwhile – organizations making progress, even by small increments, to help those in need. It seems to me that in our bustling world, in our own communities, we can be caught up in the woes of the current economic crisis, the negative news which bombards us. Take a step back, and look at the opportunity for YOU to make a difference. I am a firm believer that one person always has, always can, and always will make a difference. Even $25, or smaller, can be significant to a struggling entrepreneur in impoverished circumstances elsewhere in the world, to a public school teacher who needs extra supplies for a class project, to a mother who needs medication for her children. Please look at Kiva, Wish Upon A Hero, Donors Choose, and the other worthwhile organizations I have listed. Every person is valuable. We cannot afford to lose anyone. It really is true – when you give, you receive so much more in return! Try it! You’ll like it!
