A Week Of Features!!!

So far this week has been amazing ... 3 of my pieces have been featured on 3 fabulous blogs:

and my Selvedge Block
A very big thank you to Jill, Pam and Connie for featuring me - ladies you have made my week :D

And then this morning my daughter, Flicky was featured in an article in The Huffington Post, speaking about the upcoming movie release Girl Rising.

Here's the article:
The Global Search for Education: Girls by C M Rubin 

The movie, narrated by 9 actresses including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett, looks at the lives of 9 young girls living in 9 countries and explores how we can change the world by providing an education to all girls everywhere, a cause that Flicky strongly supports and believes in.

You may recall that I mentioned in a post last week that Flicky works with and raises funds for the WISER charity - here's a recap of that post:
My final bit of news is to share this photo of an Eli Manning signed no 10 NY Giants' jersey.  Manning, Quarterback for the NY Giants and MVP at the 2007 & 2011 season NFL Superbowl finals, donated this jersey to Flicky to help her raise funds for her Dwight School charity WISER.  In her own words Flicky raises funds to "provide education and safety for girls in Muhuru Bay, Kenya, because those girls are usually married by 14, pregnant by 15, and if they survive childbirth they will sell themselves to the sex trade to provide for their family".  Flicky included the jersey in a successful fund raising raffle at Dwight School earlier in January.

I'm so proud of Flicky and the work she's doing.

You can see the official trailer for the movie Girl Rising here on YouTube.
