A room full of creative minds,
Stalls and gifts, wondrous kinds,
All containing a piece of the sculptor’s soul,
A devotion of love, their ultimate goal.
People actively showing support,
All there to raise funds for a noble cause,
A gathering, a chance to buy and sell things,
Plus a charity replenished, everyone wins!
I had great time at a fundraising event last weekend, in support of a charity tackling breast cancer, and supporting those who have to go through this tough issue.
Lots of money was raised on the day, but what was really lovely to see, were people coming together, to do what they could, to help people dealing with this affliction, that they may never even meet in their entire life!
One of the highlights of the day for me, was having a nice chat with a sweet old lady at my stall (see photo). She wanted to buy a personalised, gift wrapped copy of my book, “Proceed With Awesome” to send to her Daughter who loves poetry, and is an actress and screen writer living and working in Los Angeles!
How cool is it that a book of mine bought here in the UK, will make a journey through the skies all the way to Tinseltown, at Christmas, simply because a Mother’s love for her daughter knows no bounds! It’s a gesture that I find simply beautiful!
Love and Respect always,
