well done.

I am starting to get realllly excited about the upcoming holidays! Every where I turn on the blog world I see TONS of great gift guide lists (mine will be up next week). I also recieve daily emails from stores offering great sales and I find myself shopping online... a lot (and thus breaking one of my 2011 new years resolutions). all of this give-me give-me give-me i want's make me feel a little guilty about all of the people who won't be celebrating the holidays this year and who wish for things i take for granted.

then i remembered there's something i can do about it (and pssst so can you!) i got an invitation from an inspiring blogger that i just couldn't resist sharing with you...


introducing the well done 2011 project. (you might have noticed the little icon i have hanging out above my photo).

well here's the deal:
you have the opportunity to make a real difference to people in need. to someone who wishes for clean water (a necessity i know a lot of people take for granted every day). it only takes $5000 to build a water well for 250 people. so that means if we all pull together and donate $5 (or more) we can help fund this amazing cause and make a world of difference to a small community.

think about it and check out this video:: why water
to see more check out Aspiring Kennedy blog and donate to a great cause!
