I have been many things over the past 50 years: student, teacher, soldier, humanitarian, etc. I am adventurous, creative, caring, mostly kindhearted, generous, but also lazy, stubborn, overweight, unorganized, and self indulgent. I love to dance, garden, watch tv, travel, swim in the ocean or a lake, make snuggle pillows for children, etc. I believe everyone should do something to make the world better. Therefore , I support many causes: the environment, human rights, empowering women, hunger, housing, animals, education,disease prevention and treatment, and many others. My sister calls me "the rebel with too many causes"! I am actually very proud of that and feel good about myself when I advocate, donate, volunteer, do projects to give directly, "click to give" through www.cleanbreath.org and even play "games that give". I also pray for many causes and the people involved as well as my own loved ones. I wish I had the power and opportunities to do even more. It is also my belief that we should all be grateful for our many blessings and to live lives filled with love, laughter, and joy!
05 FEB 2011This is my first time giving through this site. My overall mission in life is to make a positive difference in the world by whatever means I can to include: advocacy, donations, volunteering, and personal projects to help others. I am doing my best to be a kind,caring person. I also believe in living life to the fullest. This means engaging in fun,adventurous activities whenever I get the chance. It also means trying to fully enjoy life's simple pleasures and to appreciate all my many blessings!
