Would you please help our military?

I am proud to be able to call Trish Forant who runs eMail our Military a friend.  She is an amazing woman who gives so much of herself to support all of our troops. I've included a link (below) of an interview with Trish.   I'm sending everyone this email for another purpose though.  eMail Our Military is currently running a fundraiser to send skin and sun care products to our troops in the Middle East.  These are items that are sorely lacking and not only are desperately needed with the Middle Eastern climate, but are some of those little things that help make their tours away from home more bearable.  Another wonderful woman, Nancy Sutherland, a Mary Kay Director is supporting this effort by supplying the products and is matching every care package purchased with another care package.  I am asking all of you to make any donation you can towards this very important cause.   I am including the link to "Honor Courage eMail", the official blog of eMail our Military.  I encourage you to scroll back through the blog entries to learn more about this project, but alot of the other amazing things that this organization is doing.  As you will see, I have also made a contribution to the giveaway for the project.  I am donating some of my original photographs to the prize pool. 


So, please pass up tomorrow morning's coffee stop and send what you would have spent to eMail Our Military and get these urgently needed products to our troops. Send whatever you can, every $1 gets us closer to taking care of our troops.   I will also throw in my own incentive, for everyone of you who donates and lets me know that you did, I will also send you a signed, framed copy of the same photograph I donated to eMail Our Military or any other photograph from my flag collection. 

Thank you for being the warm, wonderful giving people I know all of you are!  Please also help spread the word by sending this on to the people you know who have the same big hearts that you all do!

How do I make the world a better place …

I try every day by spreading smiles, appreciation, and putting a little "gratitude in my attitude".    I offer random acts of kindness and help whenever possible to whomever possible.  But all of these things are just part of my character, ingrained in me since childhood as the right thing to do.  The things that I have tried to instill in my children so that they too will feel the need, the wonder and the joy of helping others and making their small mark on the world.

I also do something that is a little more personal.  There is a history of breast cancer in my family, so I participate in the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Breast Cancer 3-Day.   Rather than repeat all of the reasons, I'll just ask you to take a look here…
