News

Well, ladies and gents (ok, mostly ladies)... it's happening. I'm going to Haiti!! This August I'll going on a week long mission and relief trip to Haiti.

There is a lot of work to be done on my part, mainly fund raising. I'm in the process of navigating my way through the murky waters of social networking as it relates to fund-raising. To be honest, PR has never been my strong suit. But I'm going to work my butt off to raise the funds, because I believe God is calling me to get out there and serve in the trenches. (Different trenches than the ones I've been in the last 6 months.)

So... be on the lookout, because in the near future I'll be hosting my first giveaway(!!) which, if all goes to plan, will be the first of several. I'm hoping the euphoria of cool, free stuff will lead to a general spirit of generosity in the air, and I'll get some donations to the cause. :)

More details soon, but I would love if you would pray for me in my preparation for what is sure to be an amazing trip. And come back soon for the chance to win some loot!

P.S. In other news... I'm going to be a bridesmaid again!! Dress number 6 on the way to 27! :) Congratulations Kimi and Mike!

Haiti! I'm so jealous!

I'll be a bridesmaid this year too. My little brother is getting married in June. Is 32 to old to be a bridesmaid? ;)

That is excellent news! I wish you well on your positive cause in Haiti and I trust that all should be well, after all you will be there for a good cause. I love what you are doing here with all the giveaways. You are serving out to the people, in return for your trip to Haiti. That's a good bargain. All the best in whatever comes your way. :)
