January 12, 1975..... January 12, 2011

36 years ago today I was born, the angels danced and the heavens celebrated in my honor and every yeari do the same.  But last year that all changed... As I was about to take my first drink (it was gingerale last year I was so ill but still out partying smh) news broke that an earthquake hit Haiti. My first thought was to take to Facebook as so many of my friends have family there. I didn't know how much damage had been caused nor did I realize how bad it would get.  But it did, it got worse by the day and a year later the people of Haiti are still struggling. Struggling to have what so many of us take for granted regularly so I've decided that instead of buying myself a fancy new dress, and shoes to celebrate today I'm going to donate that money to a deserving charity... this charity Community2Community (C2C).

A dear friend of mine along with his sister, who left her job in May started Community2Community (C2C) to aid in the future of his home, his people and his family and I want to help him reach his goal.  I'm asking all of my friends here in the blog world and in real life to take that $2 you were going to spend on coffee and give it to this worthy charity. This is how I would like people to honor my 36 years on earth, by giving  back, by helping to rebuild a community. Yes, I think this will make the angels smile and dance yet again.

Thank You in advance...
