Because of bloggers like these next folks (sorry I hate the word “folk” too but I couldn’t think of another term in a pinch), we raised three thousand dollars and we were not only able to buy for the Purple Room but the other preschool room adopted families got help too. One in particular was a deaf/mute couple with a three month old baby and a three-year-old. Not a lot of people signed up to bring stuff to that family so your money swooped in and got them lots of supplies as well. I will have a full report after I buy all the gift cards tomorrow! I’m still taking donations through tomorrow night in exchange for shout outs like these:
The Foundation for African Medicine and Education or FAME and the Foundation Beyond Belief are both organizations doing amazing things for needy people. I highly suggest either of them as a good bet that your charity dollars will get a nice return. Also, I receive kickbacks from them. I hope I don’t have to say I’m joking. That would be really gay. And I hope when I say that would be really gay, you realize I’m being politically incorrect ironically. Moving on…
The But Why Mommy blog is the really heartwarming story of a family that became that way through international adoption. They have two kids, some pets and great stories to tell. But don’t take my word for it, check them out.
Well Read Hostess seriously cracked me up on my first visit. Here’s a tiny paragraph from her last post “I went to a non-denominational boarding school that had chapel once a week. I don’t recall a whole lot of god talk. Just some reinforcement of general Judeo-Christian principals. The Golden Rule. Honor. Don’t be a douche.” Come on, how can you not bookmark that?
Amber is a very cool mom/chick. She fights for the underdog, she loves her baby and she isn’t afraid to post a picture of herself as a young geek. Go see for yourself at Amber Page Writes.
Okay, I know nothing about gardening -that’s the bad news. But the good news is that I don’t have to now that I know about this site: Natural Gardening! Like I said, I don’t garden but if I did, this would be a site I would find right up my alley.
Okay this next site, Daddy Needs Some Alone Time is written by a real life friend of mine named Chris Mancini. He is a hilarious person as well as a talented writer (but don’t take my word for it, there’s a blog!) He and I “worked the road” together in Vegas one time and have been friends ever since. Also, we may be doing a show together where we each read from our parenting books (His is called Pacify Me -which is a great X-mas gift for the new dad in your life) very soon.
Here’s a very cool kind of earthy mama for you all. Madam Owl wears sweet boho dresses, seems to live someone remote and is a rad do-gooder. Just be careful because if you put in the URL on your own, it takes you to this weird website called Owl Talk that seems to be written by a very unhappy high schooler.
The DIY Home Center is run by Mike who send a very nice donation! If you are someone who enjoys buying things to help you improve your home and really, anyone who’s anyone improves their home so get with it!, should go to his site.
Go read Momma Kiss right now. I will describe it as fun, funny, a little edge, a little sweet and all around entertaining. And her husband sent her a really sweet email but you’ll have to read a few posts to get to it.
