Squirrel’s No Junk Mail Campaign
I don’t know about you, but I’m throwing away piles of junk mail each week. I’ve had enough! So I’m making a sticker for my door…and offering you one too! What’s the cost? Nothing. Why am I doing it? Well, because I’m an advocate of reducing waste, living simply and loving the earth – and I bet you are too!

Doodling is the brooding of the hand. -Saul Steinberg

One of my earliest and favorite memories of drawing as a child was doodling. When my uncle used to visit he would make a game out of drawing.
Trying to marry words and images well is proving to be a lifelong quest so I am always excited by the ways people are telling compelling stories on the web or anywhere for that matter. Here are a few recent and not so recent places I visit for inspiration on the web.
This year, Rasa Salon jumped on board “The Art Of Giving” with the purchase of 4 cases of wine for a fundraiser held at their Salon. The wine labels featured their tagline “You Are Beautiful. You Are Loved’ and sold for $20 each. All proceeds will be donated to Philabundance. Thank you Amber & Rasa Salon!
There is a small non-profit I’ve worked with in Vietnam “Hoi An Foundation”. They specialize in free medical care for orphans and elderly. They have done really amazing work. When I just noticed their humble little fundraiser below. I put out a quick email, and the donations came instantly! The Full Moon Festival is a big holiday in Vietnam (think Christmas), and this gave kids in need a chance to celebrate as well. The total cost was $191 for 20 kids.
