I should have said hi ("hi!") as well. My wife and I have been lurking and enjoying this site daily for about three years. I never thought I'd be interested in celeb gossip-stuff, but it's pretty fun.

Also, if anyone is into poetry, I have three collections for free on Smashwords. Enjoy, and thanks!

For anyone in New England I would recommend looking up donating to the buddy fund on www.dpvhs.org .It's a great fund and has helped pay for surgery for a lot of animals.

I am running a fundraiser for Dress for Success, a nonprofit that provides job interview suits and resources to disadvantaged women entering the workforce for the first time, or re-entering after a hardship.

The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Any donations would be appreciated. You can donate here: http://www.crowdrise.com/whatthefrock-dressforsuccess/

My Ebay name is MoonlightTreasures, right now I have some purses listed. I sell jewelry, native american pottery and old pawn sterling silver rings bracelets, used leather horse bridles and new and used tack plus more! I also have some old books and collectibles from my father in law, he has dementia now, but when he was "thinking" he would write down his memories of certain items for me to sell for him, what they were, how he got them or who they belonged to, some of his notes go back to the early 1900's from information he had, it is interesting. I also have a pure incense product I sell. My websites are not up, that is something I am working on. My email address is ckcrockett@hotmail.com if anyone is interested to see what else I have. I find some of the most unusual items and I love the "finding" part. But, no more auctions, estate sales, and yard sales for me until I sell what already have.

My all time favorite charity is Reins, this is a therapeutic riding program for handicapped kids and adults in Bonsall CA.

Thanks for the opportunity Enty!

Sadie said...

This is not my business, but its SO good that I had to share.

http://www.candlesbyvictoria.com/cbv/main.html

She sells candles, wax tarts for melters and all kinds of bath/body stuffs. You've not smelled candles until you've smelled hers!

Frufra said...

www. baltoweek.org

Now the world's best website, but one of my very favorite fundraisers ever. It's a completely student-driven fundraiser that's held every year by our local high school. Each year, the kids raise money for both a larger organization, like a children's hospital or this year's recepient, March of Dimes, and a "common thread charity", a local organization that all three local high schools have selected to support. This year's common thread is A New Leash on Life, which provides therapy and service dogs.

These fantastic kids raised over $288,000 last year! Please give them a look - perhaps they can inspire your community, too.

Frufra said...

Damnit, "not the world's best website". I am The Typo Queen - fear me!

Each year, I help organize an event at Disneyland called the Gumball Rally. It is a unique way to experience the park. Teams attempt to experience all attractions on a list in a single day. The grand prize is a one-of-a-kind gumball machine and some serious bragging rights.

The site is run by volunteers and is the largest Disneyland enthusiast community on the web!

Thank you to everyone on the site. Reading the news, blinds, and guesses brightens my days.

Please adopt from shelters! Most shelters offer discounts if you adopt an older dog, not that it matters but when I found that out I adopted an older dog as opposed to a pup because it made me sad!

Thanks for the chance to shamelessly plug our swag, Enty!

Here's mine: www.travelswithjudy.com

The book is now available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. (Also available on Kindle!)

Cheers everyone!

Silly Girl said...

@Shocky, that was awesome! I almost spit my yogurt all over my screen! I am SO glad you were joking. :)

My plug would be to visit dog rescues and rescue a dog! We went over the weekend and it was heartbreaking to see all these dogs with no homes! At least go and play with them, they are too cute (please don't jump all over me bashing playing with the dogs or anything...)

Lola said...

When the troops are in Afghanistan, they often face loneliness, emotional hardship an physical injury. Many find solace in the stray dogs and cats that live on the bases (or are found elsewhere) that they adopt. Unfortunately, when the soldiers return home, they are forced to leave these animals, who gave them hope and love, behind. Nowzad is an organization which runs a shelter in Afghanistan and brings home the animals the soldiers have come to love and depend on.

If you love animals and would like to help the soldiers who gave so much...This is a wonderful organization .

rejectedcarebear said...

Haha! I swear she sent in a reader photo or atleast someone who looked like her. She's stunningly gorgeous ya know?

~mara said...

www.houstoncollierescue.com - or your local shelter/pet rescue site. Help the ones who have been abandoned and left helpless.

plrtz glrb said...

Have to jump on the adopt from shelters bandwagon. also with the older dogs, I 'saved a senior' and never regretted it. older dogs don't require all the training and energy of pups. please don't support puppy mills.

Del Riser said...

It's cold outside. Please donate warm clothes to your local men's or women's shelter, coats, scarves, gloves, socks.
Your local animal shelter would love to have you adopt a dog or cat or donate warm bedding, even old towels, bleach for cleaning, paper towels for cleaning.
Basically, anything you can do for someone less fortunate.

I am not plugging anything today but St Jude's Research hospital is a great charity for children with cancer - if you were thinking about donating some money, why not there:)

Shocky, rjc, pw and katydid:

I kid you not re M:

From the 2nd paragraph : http://www.sarahafshar.com/2012/12/i-am-not-hooker-i-am-not-terrorist.html

You'll need a bottle of wine to slog through it but the comments are also interesting.

Always looking for good causes to donate to!!

Shocky said...

I'm pleased you all took it in the right way, I didn't want to be mean but I couldn't resist. Thanks Agent, will take a look.

katydid said...

Shocky said...

@silly pleased it made you smile and that you were able to rescue your yogurt!

Roman Holiday said...

@Shocky, how could anyone not remember her!!! Will be looking at those links later tonight!! It's probably a regurgitation of something that someone else already wrote about:)

Amber said...

@sparklers - I LOVE sky lanterns! Will keep in mind...

Silly Girl said...

@Agent, OMG, how did you find that?!?! That woman is a nutjob! Seriously, she scares me. In a major way. I need to read through all of this, but not on the clock.....c'mon weekend, c'mon weekend! ;)

E Gee Be said...

@sparklers, I am dying to think of a reason/venue to use sky lanterns and I am that girl who buys extra sparklers every July 4 so that I have them during the year! I will check this out and share with the event planner at work!

The site is down now, but Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is a wonderful organization, and they deserve more respect than what they get (and I am talking about how their rep's question was blown over the other night on c-span during the conference on marijuana. BTW, the former officer asked how it's acceptable that we have currently over 200g+ kids living in homes where child porn is being downloaded, meanwhile, millions of hours each year are devoted to going after this sole "green plant." And all this former cop wanted to know is how we find that acceptable. He also noted that on every call, whenever indecency was going on, alcohol was always involved, never herb. ALl things which need to be heeded and heard).

This is my sons school. It's a small non profit for children with autism. They are an amazing group of teachers and therapists. They are trying to buy an iPad for the school so the children who are non verbal can work with the Aba therapists and speech therapist to learn a speech output program. A worthy cause! :)
