Bright Sunshiny Day: Tuesday's Treasures
Well, tomorrow maybe. Today is cloudy, grey, and rainy... but I can dream of the sun, can't I? And there are other ways to make the day brighter! You can be a volunteer in your community, donating your time and energy to improving the outlook and life of someone else. You can donate money to a cause close to your heart, like Haitian relief for children, cancer research, animal welfare, literacy efforts, or so many others. You can simply offer thoughts, meditations, and prayers for those who suffer or for the world at large.
My little glass pin of a happy redheaded girl is offered in my Etsy shop and a portion of the sale is donated to the American Cancer Society. The artists included here are also active in donating to various causes, in an effort to bring a bit of happiness and sunshine to the world around them!
