When the skies are grey and the air is cold and the low-grade sniffles are hard to shake, it's easy to forget that spring will one day arrive. If you're feeling stuck in a winter rut, check out this video. It is a really elegant and spellbinding illustration of Nature's cycle. Via Little Brown Pen.

As many of you are aware, my marvelous hubby, Taro, is the Founder and Artistic Director of an amazing non-profit organization, Our Time, which is dedicated to helping young people who stutter (click here to see Our Time featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams). Every Spring we hold a big fancy gala to celebrate the company's wonderful work, raise funds for the upcoming year, and pay tribute to an inspirational individual. It is always a fun and moving night with enough glitz and glam to sparkle us right through to the next one. (Click here to see my post about the 2008 gala with lots of entertaining photos). I'm sure this year will be no exception, and I plan on keeping you posted on all the exciting news as we prepare for the gala.
There’s a plane leaving NYC for Haiti on Tuesday, 1/19, and charity: water needs your help filling it with cargo. As you may know, charity: water is a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Members of the charity: water staff have been in close contact with their field partners; they are turning the charity: water office in Manhattan into a drop-off point for the following items (those most urgently needed in Haiti this week):
Feminine hygiene products
Cases of bottled water
* these items can be gently used
If you can make a donation, please stop by the charity: water office at 200 VARICK STREET on Monday, 1/18, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. DO NOT MAIL THESE ITEMS TO THEIR OFFICE.
IF YOU CAN CARRY THE DONATIONS BY HAND IN ONE LOAD: Please enter through the front door at 200 Varick St. You will need a photo ID to enter the building. charity: water is located on the 2nd floor, Suite 201.
IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS OR ARE DONATING IN BULK: Please email Lane Wood to schedule a drop-off time. Lane's e address: lane.wood[at]charitywater[dot]org
All supplies will be transported this week by Partners in Health and distributed where they are needed most. charity: water's other partners in Haiti, Concern Worldwide US, are sending supplies from Ireland and still have a pressing need for donations.
