A very good friend of mine and musician has decided to fulfill his life-long calling of both playing music and making a difference. I won’t tell his story for him, but he and I both have dealt with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts, among other things.
He’s tried a lot of things in the past to promote his music AND the things he’s passionate about, but as I know many of you know, when you’re dealing with anxiety and depression, it can sabotage you in the worst ways and at the worst possible times.
I’ve seen Tumblr do some amazing things, and Elijah Cross has been waiting on some amazing things for a long time. I’d appreciate if you’d give his most recent video a listen. This isn’t a random project, this is for the people he wants to reach out to, the ones who have been and are where we have been.
Check it out for him or check it out for me or check it out for all of the people who need to be reminded that there’s someone out there who hasn’t given up on them.
Oh, and so you know he can sing and play and write, here’s a recent performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BKl4TGuwMI&feature=plcp. That first song is one of my favorites.
Help change the lives of those with Autism. Until Aug. 31, 30 percent of every online sale from www.meredithschriver.chloeandisabel.com will be donated to Autism Speaks!
If by, help change an autistic person’s life, you mean, support a eugenics org who wishes that autistic people didn’t exist? Well, yes, well done there.
Shameless plug right here: I’m no jewelry maker, but I hand-make friendship bracelets for the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network—an organization createdby and for autistics. 100% of the profit will go to ASAN…as soon as I get enough worthy of a donation.
So it’s not a studded leather bangle or a gold necklace, but it does go to a charity that supports and is supported by the autistic community. Check it out here: http://battlechicken.wordpress.com/braceletsforasan/
I haven’t had to make a bracelet in a week. I HAS A SAD.
Buy a bracelet for $2. All profits will go to the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, and I love you long time. ;-)
As I mentioned at the end of last week, I’m making and selling bracelets for charity—100% of the profit goes to the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network.
Until I make sure I can mail to Europe no problem, it’s US only. Hopefully I’ll know in a week or two about my European friends.
$2 for a standard bracelet (choose from 3 specific color combinations or a random combo), $7 for a custom bracelet (you choose the color).
I’ve never done this before, so if you run into any problems, let me know.
Bracelet Project Is…
on! Details to come next week! :-D
ASAN got in touch with me today and gave me the thumbs up!
I’m going to take that as a yes!
I’ve sent an email to ASAN. If they’re okay with it, I’ll start making some bracelets! :-D
Sorry for the crappy picture, I’ll do better next time. lol.
Would It Be Okay…
for me and my daughter to make friendship bracelets to sell, and then donate profits to ASAN? We’ve been making these little bracelets out of yarn, and I thoroughly enjoy it. I wanted to give them to people, but I wanted it to be for a reason.
This week, ASAN has really come to the forefront of my attention. Man, AS gets all sorts of people raising money for them, and I thought this is something I could do.
If I did this, I’d sell them pretty cheap because I’m relatively sure I could send them in an envelope (they’re really light). If it’s cool for me to do that, would anyone buy one?
