While I'm on the topic, a couple of exceptional readers have written to tell me about the brilliant contributions they have been making. The lovely Julien Denoyer wrote to me to tell me about her Etsy shop selling Fine Art Prints like this egg image above and giving a percentage from every sale to charities close to her heart like Doctors without Borders & Lend with Care.
Even more amazingly Lesley, a volunteer with a non-profit called FXB International who are running the What Women’s Empowerment (W.E.) Can Do (What W.E. Can Do) campaign created by FXB and the FXB Action Network to inspire and engage young professionals concerned about the welfare of women and children in the developing world and are looking to establish a network of supporters in the blogosphere and other online communities who share their desire to fight poverty and AIDS and empower women worldwide. By partnering with FXB, we can enable FXB’s programs to continue to provide mothers with the capital, training, and tools necessary to start their own small businesses, allowing them to provide for their families and affording their children with the real possibility to escape poverty once and for all. You can make donations directly.
