Not like, put the toilet seat down kind of good. Or even wear deodorant for everyone else's sake. Actually, do those things anyway but that's not what I'm getting at. If you've read my blog long enough, you've heard some outrageous facts on Feel Me Up Fridays. I'm not afraid to expose my insides. In fact, I recommend it. It's THE BEST form of therapy. For realz.
One thing you might have noticed is the banner on the top of my page. If you haven't heard of To Write Love on Her Arms, you MUST check them out. They're an amazing organization who offers hope to those suffering from depression, suicide, self-injury, drug and alcohol addiction. They advocate healing through love, compassion and understanding.
Here's a random fact for you to swallow: This organization saved my life. Over the weekend, I had an email exchange with a new blog friend who reminded me how important it is to talk. We, as a people, don't talk enough. Through open communication and a "no fear" approach, it's 100% possible to overcome issues such as TWLOHA.
(though in my head it says "I love you, Candyland")
#seriouslyrocks isn't just because he's in a kick-ass band and delicious to my eyes, but because he's deeper than that. There's another superfab organization I've only recently discovered through this New Medicine yummy, Matt Brady. Talk about a rocker with heart...This guy is a huge advocate of the organization, Joy 2 the World, which helps empower the women (and girls) of Ghana, Africa by generating microloans. I can't say enough good things about this band, this hottie or this org.
"I think J2W is an incredibly unique tool to inspire impowerment, not encourage dependency. The program is really important to me and i'll be returning toWhat he forgot to add was this: in January to help oversee its progress."
"I'm falling head over heels for you Candyland. If only I could see your face, I'm sure I''d be lost in your invisible eyes forever."*Ahem*
In honor of New Medicine's visit this Friday, I encourage you to do some good today for the women of Ghana, or my lovlies at TWLOHA. More on Matt Brady's mission next week, and why YOU should be a part of it (hubba hubba; he's seriously too hot).
Until then, spread the word. Pay it forward. I've already made my donations, now it's your turn. And if you stalk Matt Brady or New Medicine, tell them Candyland sent you...
If you could create a charity, what would your cause be?
Be beautiful today my friends.
