"...they say it's MY birthday!"

"MUG HUG" drawing prize for one lucky donor

And, to celebrate, I have a gift for you!

Well, at least, one of you!

If you know me, you likely know that girls figure greatly in my life (mother of 4 daughters and one of 5 sisters…+ 2 brothers, but who's counting). Pink and rosy – that’s where I come from!

But it’s not so rosy for girls everywhere. Together we can change that. (And you could win this painting!)

I am raising money to help Edge of Seven build schools for girls in the mountains of rural Nepal and villages in Tanzania. Edge of Seven a wonderful organization that really delivers what it promises. Seriously, they literally build schools and dormitories so girls in rural mountain villages can be educated. Investing in girls helps poor communities thrive, and you can trust Edge of Seven - they achieve amazing results with every dollar.

In Nepal over 218,000 school age children are not able to attend school. It’s either too far, too expensive or they need to work at home. Of those who can get to school, 70% of girls drop out by 10th grade. And yet it has been well documented that educating girls helps the community as much as the individual, reducing poverty for all.

Help us help girls and I will put the names of all who donate $20 or more into a drawing for my painting, Mug Hug. And why a painting of a mug o' joe? Because all you have to do is donate your coffee money for a week (or two depending on your caffeine habit). Anyone can do it.

Donate here to help improve the lives of girls and ultimately their communities. It's easy and it'll give you a better jolt than your morning mug!

Take a chance - my Mug Hug painting could be yours!
It's like the lottery... but you can't lose 'cause you'll definitely win with that feel-good feeling of DOING good.

breaking ground in Nepal
environment friendly earth bags
so many lives changed
