My friend (and talented writer, and marathon runner) Amy Purcell is about to embark on a two week trip to Guatemala to help the Give the Gift of Sight Foundation provide free eye exams and eyewear to who otherwise don’t have access to eye care. What’s enormously wonderful about this program is that they take used, donated glasses and match the prescription to someone who needs them. So read Amy’s blog and find out how you can donate your old glasses (and dig that photo on the foundation’s main page)
Since I’m talking about Amy, let me share one of the reasons why I adore her so. Recently she sent me an email with the following:
And by the way, I think your rapper name should be Living Donah or Cool L.D. or something like that. Actually, I think your band name for your novel – until you think of something permanent should be Living Donors. 🙂
Should I get the printed on a tee shirt? Or better yet, one of those gaudy, gold, diamond encrusted necklaces?
