It takes a Village...Hurricane Sandy

As I look around my house that is cozy, my children and pets that are safe.
Then look to the devastation on the east Coast from Hurricane Sandy.
I can't help but feel almost guilty that so many suffer
while most of us are safe and secure.
At the same time, living in California, I am aware that a massive earthquake could
take this all away.

Crying yesterday while reading my friend 

of her hurricane Sandy experience,
I felt compelled to donate something to the cause.

So, I am donating this piece of jewelry that is Entitled, "HOPE".

For through every STORM cloud the SUN is ALWAYS shining and 
no matter how horrible life can be, we must always have 


By donating through the ART IS YOU site, this necklace and many other artists work places you in a raffle to win one of the items.

  1. George Carlin said once that Mother Nature could shake us all off like a bad case of fleas.
    I always think of this when these things happen...the donations must continue. It's going to take a very long time to help these familys to piece together a new life.


    1. I remember George Carlin saying that and totally agree. Still, we must all stick together to help our brothers and sisters here and abroad! xo
