A Different Valentine's Day!

I love gifts that make a difference, regardless of the holiday. This year, instead of flowers that will die and chocolate that will only stick to your thighs, check out two of the gifts that are on my "I want" list.

This Vanilla Oatmeal Soap is from The Adventure Project. You remember them. They were the rockin' women who brought us the Coal Project for Christmas. Now, these ladies are bringing clean water to India. Go here and read all about one of my favorite non-profits and what they are doing to change the world and SMELL great doing it!

This amazing waterdrop bracelet is being offered by Kwait Diamonds and the profits go to benefit charity:water. You can read about charity:water and this amazing bracelet by going here.

Also, you can head over to and order a t-shirt which will benefit families adopting, it is a great way of Recycling your Love. Hope you have an amazing Valentine's Day!

Well Now What?

I started this blog to help people fund raise for their adoptions and give you the reader ideas to make your Christmas more meaningful. Now that the tinsel is gone and the tree is back in the attic, I debated for some time as to the fate of this blog. It seemed sad to put it away until next holiday season, since it seems as if we Americans can conjure a holiday at least every other week.

I've decided to stay and since people still need to help have their fundraising projects (and I really love to shop), the blog will continue to highlight products that give back, make you think and perhaps make you laugh.

Meet the Marquis family. This fellow Ethiopian adoptive family had such a fun time making their bottle cap necklaces for their adoption, they are doing it again to raise money for Ethiopia Reads,an organization which brings books to children in Ethiopia.

Check out these awesome designs just in time for Valentine's Day: Go here. Send some love.
