Spreading Holiday Cheer: Peace On Earth

  This morning’s post was all about Spreading Christmas Cheer: Goodwill to all.  In addition, I would like to raise awareness for some amazing environmental organizations both local and international.  In the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Below is a list of some fantastic environmental organizations- my hope is to help raise awareness for them.  Consider making a donation to help them in their efforts in protecting the environment and wildlife. The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) Their aim:  “To provide oceanographic facilities that support key research into coral reef stress and to conduct research at a remote site, largely unaffected by local human and development impacts.” The National Trust for the Cayman Islands The mission of the National Trust: ” To preserve the history and biodiversity of the Cayman Islands. Through education and conservation we work to protect environmentally sensitive and historically significant sites across all three Cayman Islands.” Blue Iguana Recovery Program Help protect The Grand Cayman …

Eco Mad hatter Hats

                  Last weekend, The National Trust for the Cayman Islands hosted an awesome 5K Glow Run!! “Light up the night for a brighter future” In the spirit of this fundraising event one of my bestie’s and I joined in with other participants creating funky glow costumes.  We made “Mad Hatter Hats” which of course, had an environmental theme.  One was nature themed, the other ocean themed.  In addition, we added some glow accessories, funky shades, and faux/synthetic feathered boas (which can be recycled for other events). How to make Eco Mad Hatter Hats What you will need: Plastic black top hats (repurposed New Year’s Eve hats), cardboard, faux flowers, faux/synthetic feathers, toilet paper rolls, postcard, sea fan, glow in the dark stickers, glow paint (non-toxic), glue gun. “Dear Verdant Island” The Cayman Islands Blue Iguana was the mascot for this hat 🙂 Made out of cardboard, (repurposed pizza box). Written below the Blue Iguana, is lyrics from the Cayman Islands National Song “Dear Verdant Island.”  Some faux flowers …

Birthday Wishes, With Love xo

    On this lovely Sunday Morning, I am thankful to be celebrating another birthday.  My birthday wish this year, is more compassion and selflessness in the world.  A couple of years ago I started a tradition on my birthday, and that was donating to different charities.  The older I got, the less I was interested in presents for myself, but rather I wanted to focus on how I could give back.  God has truly blessed me, and there really are no gifts that I need, a lot of wants but no real needs.  I believe in blessing others with the blessings God has given me.  So for all of my lovely friends, and family who are reading this if you feel inspired to make a donation to one of the charities I have mentioned below in honor of my birthday please do.  It is far better that we give, even on a small scale, than to give nothing at all. Now, I would like to share with you the charities/ non-proift organizations I have …
