I stand with the 'Occupy' Movement as it moves through the cities of many prominent western countries...Indeed, I am, within these standards, of the 99%. But I am reminded daily, both here on Crowdrise, and by world news networks that, if I have a roof over my head, a meal in my stomach, a shirt on my back, shoes on my feet, clean drinking water, and any spell of sleep that is not riddled with the sounds of a war zone, I am in the top 25%...This holiday season, I wish the same for you and yours, and urge you to remember those who are not...December vote for your part in Crowdrise's Movement for a Better World for All...

Hi Robin! Thank you so much …
Hi Robin! Thank you so much for your support of both the Make a Wish Foundation and the Special Olympics! They are both awesome programs, and I am happy to take the Plunge for them!

My daughter and I did the Plunge last year for the first time. I have to admit, we were lucky with regards to the water and air temp...Ocean temp was about 44' and the air temp was almost 50'...unseasonably warm for new Year's Day in New England...I am hoping for a repeat with mother Nature this year, but I am prepared in case it is really cold ;)

"You can't relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle."
~ Timothy Dalton

Here in some areas of the East Coast, the snow, and resulting power outages of last week practically turned Halloween into a 5-day party. Trick-or-Treaters were dressed up in this year's variety of icons, including an abundance of super heroes: The Green Lantern, Captain America, Thor, and a few left overs from the past few years, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman...But when the holiday is over, and we return back from the land of make-believe, we know the heroes are here on Crowdrise ;) Hence, your Happy November vote!

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet

As we continue through the hurricane season here on the east coast of the United States, we have been given a small taste of adversity. I work in a hotel, filled to capacity for several days in a row, following Irene, by people who were without clean water and/or electricity, those with damaged homes, or by those service people coming into the area to help clean up the mess, and restore us to our 'normal way of life'. My involvement here on Crowdrise, however, makes me aware that all of this past week is little more than a reminder of what a large part of Earth's inhabitants go through on a daily basis. Victims such as those of the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the tsunami, mass flooding, and the tornadoes that ripped though the Continental US's mid-west will require months, if not years, of recover. And the vast majority have no hotel where they can spend that recovery period.

"A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around." ~Ed Howe

Don't underestimate even the most modest of involvement here on this site...A September vote for you and your heroic efforts...

“Freedom in general may be defined as the absence of obstacles to the realization of desires” ~Bertrand Russell

July is the month for celebrating freedom in many countries, including Burundi & Rwanda (July 1st), Abkhazia, a.k.a. Georgia, & the United States (July 4th), Algeria, Cape Verde & Venezuela (July 5th), Malawi (July 6th), Solomon Islands (July 7th), Argentina (July 9th), the Bahamas (July 10th), São Tomé and Príncipe (July 12th), Slovakia (July 17th), Laos (July 19th), Belgium (July 21st), Liberia & Maldives (July 26th), Peru (July 28th), Vanuatu (July 30th)...

During this time where some of us celebrate our freedom, it would do us well in spirit to remember to act for those who can not act for themselves; those hindered by a lack of freedom and independence, due to medical illness, political or economic strife, or the bonds of slavery, abuse or torture. We have the freedom to make a difference in the lives of others....A July vote for you for being here to make that difference...

Sending a May vote to you after a bit of a hiatus. Spring time is the time when the belly dance community here goes into full force, and the vast majority of our shows are charity events, so I have been busy. Spring, however, is the time for new beginnings, and it was time for me to make some serious changes. New living arrangements, a new job, and new opportunities have dominated the past few months, but my Crowdrise friends were always close to my heart (even if my heart was not close to my computer during this time). I admit to feeling a bit out of touch, but hope to catch up quickly. Keep up the awesome job you are doing!

Stuff About Me:
Well, here I am....working on something new.
My friends know I am big on donating to a worthy cause. People that know me, know that I am a fan of music.
I also love to travel. Obviously, traveling to cities for a concert is one of my favorite things to do.

I also love my cats and I am always helping a cat that has been abandoned or a stray cat that wanders into my yard.

I am also doing another fund raiser for the Heart Walk in my area. Here is the link to my personal page there.

Heart Walk

And one last thing, I am disappointed that Lizard, Spock are missing from Rock, Paper, Scissors. I would've chosen Spock. Alas, Rock will have to do.
