I am Doris in N CA. Over time, this has become the "serious" blog.
Since the suicide of my son, I have become involved in suicide awareness and, yes, that creeps into the blog on a fairly regular basis.
It took me a while, but I've finally decided on ways I will be helping: First of all, the proceeds from all sales in my etsy shop until the end of January (at least) will be donated to Doctors without Borders.
Secondly, I will be offering a couple of bags to Craft Hope (see button on right) to be listed in their etsy store. Proceeds there, too will be going to Doctors without Borders to help the people of Haiti.
Why did I pick this particular group? Because the son of a motivational speaker we saw and enjoyed tremendously a little of a year ago volunteered and (may still be helping) for this group.
So, please consider helping. You'd be doing something good and end up with a baggie in return. Thank you!
