I know, I know! Friday I said I would officially sit down and shup up until Relay for Life/Fashion for Life kicked in, but dang it all, then Draxtor Despres happened. I am sure so many of you know of him, he is legend in the SL Outbound Communications Network and a recent The Drax Files You-Tube episode of his hit me flat out betwixt my approximately 250L Sea Hole dress and the matching 150L handbag. What the ‘ell am I talking about? It means the money I spent to throw this blog up today could have fed 4 children in Kenya. Heck, throw in the hairs, jewelry and makeup and I could have probably fed closer to 8. Small, the knowledge of this makes me feel very small. Here I woke up without a thought to hunger, made coffee, a protein shake and a cup of yogurt and I wasn’t even the slightest bit hungry before I ate. What have you eaten today? Did you have to worry whether you would be hungry? Or did you, like I often do, only worry about what you were going to do today?
100 Lindens, that’s all it takes to feed a child. 100 Lindens, or .30 cents USD! Can you believe it? Put it in this perspective, Over the weekend I spend 6500 L’s to blog a mesh head I will probably never wear again. http://anchailinalainn.com/2014/02/01/avatar/ I missed the opportunity to help 65 children in need. But I won’t anymore. I have no musical talent, so I can’t offer sound, but I can offer Brique Topaz of Lavender Fields ( http://slurl.com/secondlife/Feed%20A%20Smile/52/123/23 ) my wallet, and my word. Because in the talent department, that is humbly all I have.
The take from? Yeah, its time. We all have something to offer, even if it’s just a hundred of our hard earned Lindens. Watch the You Tube video and think about it today and see how it feels on you. As for me? I’ve now listened 4 times and I may be blogging in the nude next week, but I can’t let this moment go by without doing something. I hope you will too.
