so the last few weeks of the year were a complete blur of long hours, exciting new stock coming in, and planning for the last of 2010!
let me tell you how this came to be.
the beginning of the year, one of my dear friends, caitlin, was involved in a foundation setup by an incredibly talented athlete (and another dear, dear friend) eloise! and i was asked to be on board with a foundation.
soooo, i went over in november (dear es, help the fort up!) and visited all the beautiful orphans, we went to numerous villages where we hope to run the seeds project this year and explained it all to them and we went to the village where the first lot of seeds were distributed! and all i can say is that the trip was life changing, driving into the village, with these women, in their best dress to see us, singing on the top of their voice to welcome us, its a moment that will stay in my mind forever!
so goodbye 2010...thankyou for the wealth of knowledge you gave, for the joyous memories made in a little shop in engadine and mostly for ending the year with perspective that for so little, whether it be a donation for a woman in uganda, a smile to a walker-by, or the time of day and a helping hand for the people around us in the community...they are a all small step in making the world a better place!
