Blessings Friday: Tasha Tudor Day and Blog Action Day 2008

There are two upcoming events I want to tell you about. One honors the life of a woman and one fights poverty. Although seemingly different, both are about living mindfully and taking responsibility for the way in which we live and interact with others.

Tasha Tudor Day August 28, 2008

Clarice at Storybook Woods is hosting a celebration in memory of this wonderful woman’s life as indicated in the picture. I’m joining in the celebration that day and hope you’ll join in as well. It’s going to be awesome to see how Tasha Tudor touched other people’s lives and discover creative ways of continuing her legacy.

Blog Action Day October 15, 2008

Blog Action Day is an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters, to post about the same issue on the same day in order to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.”

I participated in Blog Action Day last year with a series of posts about making your own natural cleaning products and am registered again for this year’s effort. Poverty is the topic for this year’s campaign.

I’m grateful for role models like Tasha Tudor who prove it’s possible to live life mindfully. And I am grateful for the opportunity to help fight poverty.

June thanks for posting this and I have joined up! I have registered and am ready to go! Let's fight world hunger! This is one of those causes that is very close to my heart! I feel even in America we have hunger and that should never be in one of the richest countries in the world! I am so blessed to call you my friend dear June...thank you for doing this and fighting hunger!
Love you!

Blog action day - what an interesting idea! I have just registered as a result of seeing your post, and I'm thinking of making some brooches to sell in aid of a charity... just to pick which charity and what design of brooch to make!
thanks for sharing! :D
