As my first guest post on Absolutely Beautiful Things - I'd like to use it to help to make a little bit of change in the world. Yesterday was Blog Action 2008 - Poverty Day where bloggers were asked to unite and promote awareness of world poverty ☺.
How you can help?........Corine of Hidden in France has promised to donate one dollar per comment to Kiva a person-to-person micro-lending website, which aims to alleviate poverty by enabling people to lend directly to small enterprise entrepreneurs in the developing world. My Notting Hill and Catherine, last years winner of Domino's Decorating contest, have also offered to match the number of comments (in dollars) - up to fifty dollars.
I've been a bit naughty and have commented - 3 times now! :-) Even if you can spare one comment - I'm sure they will all add up. To comment and contribute, see Corine's post "Poverty (mine)".
Hugs and smiles and it's lovely to be back here with you☺.Felicity
