Last Christmas I posted a daily Advent Calendar of gift ideas that were a tad quirky, and tried to avoid blatant materialism. First up on my list was a donation to the Ubuntu charity foundation which supports kids living with AIDS in South Africa. Several days later I added Doctors without Borders. My love for travel, for Africa and for young kids makes these charities natural choices and I am a major fan.
So imagine my excitement when I heard that The Girls Guide to Paris was launching a new magazine and they were using the event as an excuse to host a charity gala cocktail for both of these organizations! Almost as good, I was asked to write about my adventures in Africa for an upcoming article!!!
The gala is tonight folks, and since they want to give everyone the chance to participate, they are holding a raffle with prizes that include a Perrin bag, and a five night stay on the Ile Saint Louis in Paris! Prizes also include an invite to the gala, but the drawing is at the event, so I’m not sure how that is supposed to work. Happily, I don’t care, because its not about the prizes. Its about helping kids across the globe get the care they need, so I am IN!!!
