So listen–My friend Steph is three things: She is super-talented, she is out-of-control kind-hearted, and she is as funny as a kitten with a mirror…. I don’t know how funny that is. She is as funny as a monkey in a burlap bag…. That’s not it. She is as funny as llama with allergies…. Crap. I don’t know. She’s really funny, though…. Let’s go with the monkey. Anyway, she’s more things than that, but those are the big three: Talented, kind, and funny–not necessarily in that order (This is her BLOG). She was over at our house last night, and I asked my sweet wife (who happens to also be those same three things, with descent portion of sass added to one of them) if she would make me some cool/funny business cards for my blog. Steph said, “I think it would be cool if you just had a card with a picture of a beard with some glasses.” A minute or two later, I had the picture you see below.
When I came home today from work, I checked my Facebook and saw that my wife had changed her profile picture to one of Steph’s drawings. And it was ALSO very cool. I immediately said to the wife, “She could totally sell these things.” My wife, not without a certain degree of sass, informed me that she had already decided to make them for people as a fund-raiser for her upcoming trip to Haiti (with some “That’s so four hours ago” sort of tone). This year’s trip will be her third year going to Haiti to help out at an orphanage and spend a while loving some kids, and she still has a bunch of money to raise in order to go.
So she will make you your very own…. um, I’m not sure what they are called. Pop art silhouette? Customized portraits? Art Face? I like “Self Art Face.” Say it out loud. If you click on THIS LINK RIGHT HERE and donate $10 to her Haiti trip, she will make you an awesome Art Face. What’s that? You have a family of three? No prob, Bob…. $30 will get you something awesome, and you will be helping to send a really cool woman to Haiti to kick it with some orphans. You’ll get the digital file, and you can use it for whatever you want–Facebook profile, wedding gift, even business cards for your blog. This is about the best way that I can think of to spend $10. Take advantage of this offer, and help a sister out. And even if you don’t buy one for yourself, you need to go ahead and share this post. One last thing–James1:27 says this: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
