World Humanitarian Day

I apologize for my absence but my entry this week (or for last week if I find something for this week) is an important one trying to bring together literally a billion people. The UN celebrates World Humanitarian Day every year and this year they want all of us to get involved. They want everyone to say ‘I Was Here’ on August 19th and commit to doing something good, somewhere, for someone else. ‘I Was Here’ is inspired by Beyonce’s song (I was at the taping for the music video that will air on the 19th!) and is aiming at getting everyone involved and showing that those that are abroad doing humanitarian work are awesome and great but that we can all help and make a difference. Right now when you visit the website you can sign-up to have a World Humanitarian Day message posted on your facebook or twitter on the 19th and then you can check out the ideas they have to help others or come up with one of your own. For example, my sister and I make no-sew fleece blankets and donate them so at the least I will definitely be making one this Sunday. So take a look at the site, sign up, and then take part on Sunday! Happy Humanitarian Day!

Until next week,
