If you need a reason to open your hearts and your wallets to help the survivors of the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti here it is: it’s good for your karma and your feng shui. The photos of the devastation are heartbreaking.
If you are an artist, you can contribute the income from some of your t-shirt designs by sending your graphic design images directly to HaitiRelief@cafepress.com. CafePress.com is setting up a special shop where all proceeds will go to UNICEF‘s Haiti Relief Fund.
Musicmaker Wyclef Jean has been involved with helping the people of Haiti for awhile now and has enlisted other celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to work with his Yele Foundation. Now of course Yele will be targeting the survivors and the rebuilding that will follow. All you need do to contribute $5 to Wyclef’s org is to use your cell phone to text a message to 501501 and the message you type in is “YELE”. They will text you back a confirmation that you reply “Yes” to in order to collect the funds from your phone company.
These are just two organizations you can donate to. The Red Cross and many others are also good choices.
When you got married, did you register for fancy china dinnerware for your wedding? What do you do if some if has broken? Having broken or incomplete stuff around your house is a feng shui no-no.
Maybe you got divorced and have one–or two!–boxes of wedding china kicking around in storage somewhere in your home. Hopefully it’s not in your Love & Relationship sector messing with your new marriage…or blocking energy so you can’t find a new partner.
Or perhaps you inherited various china from grandma and are afraid to use it and break it?
Here’s the solution: you can buy missing pieces of your china pattern at Replacements, Ltd OR you can turn your old china set into cash by selling. Now THAT’S good for your Wealth sector AND your Love sector! Replacements, Ltd is a huge retail store near Raleigh, NC. However, you don’t have to live in NC to take advantage of them. Do it all via phone, internet, or postal service.
I’ve never been married or registered for china but I do have a great collection of vintage Fiestaware that I absolutely love for its vibrant energy.
What’s your tableware like?
