Hey guys! An amazing indie band named “Great Caesar” is putting together an awesome video project that I would really like to help make happen. Their project is to promote LGBTQ tolerance and acceptance through a beautiful story that follows characters from the 1960s to now, showing the ugliness of intolerance through all generations, but also showing the promise of peace that each of us can bring. Please watch the video and contribute to their Kickstarter campaign if it inspires you as much as it inspired me. xoxo, Whit
I just came across this cool daily newsletter, theSkimm, that makes staying in-the-know with news fun. You sign up with just your email address, and every day you receive a newsletter of quick, witty summaries of the hottest news of the day. The two founders (both women in their 20s) say it’s “for the educated professional who knows enough to know she needs to know more”— have to love women looking out for the greater good of women everywhere. Sign up and start reading! I know I will. xoxo, Whit
I wanted to share this success story from a charity that I think does really great work, Chrysalis. The organization helps homeless and low-income individuals find jobs and retain employment. Here’s one of their recent success stories:
“Tiffany, a single mom, arrived at Chrysalis holding her newborn baby girl. She was homeless, jobless, and understandably scared.
Today, this single mom is realizing her dreams. Tiffany has a secure job at Nordstrom, her own apartment, and a community of support to help raise her beautiful little girl.”
This year, Chrysalis will help employ over 3,500 individuals. Please take some time to look at their website and read their mission. I attended the Chrysalis ball last year, and it was such a beautiful, inspiring and impactful evening— click through the gallery for a few pics from the event. xoxo, Whit
