THE STORY:

It's time for my birthday again -this time it's the big 4-Oohhh. Yikes! As many of you know, I like to use my birthday as an excuse to have a charity. This year I have decided to buy winter sleeping bags for the homeless in Atlanta and the Florida gulf coast. These good quality winter bags are rated to 10-degrees. As you know, winter in both area gets VERY cold! These are not just "homeless people", they are our brothers and sisters. They are PEOPLE... people with problems, people that have had a streak of bad luck, people that are discouraged -we've ALL had these things in our lives! So let's reach out a helping hand, let's up our karma little bit, let's do something good in the world!!!

I dedicate this fundraiser to Rebecca Schneider. A woman who inspired me to continue down the path of compassion, peace, and love.  Rest In Peace Becky.

We will be having a Sunday Funday/birthday celebration at Piedmont Park in Atlanta on Sunday Aug 17th in the "Oak Hill" area along 10th Street from 12-7pm. Look for the aqua colored peace sign flag. Bring chairs, games, food, beer, drinks, bikinis/bathing suits.... AND of course cash to donate if you didn't donate here. Please, NO birthday gifts. -Just give to this cause!  Scroll through the pics for a pic of the flag and a park map.
