A Birthday Wish, xo

  My birthday wish this year is to see more kindness, compassion, hope and love in this world.  A random act of kindness can go along way making someone’s day.  I think we all deserve to believe in miracles, hopes and dreams coming true- I guess I wish that for everyone too.  Sometimes it is the little things that remind us to always believe something wonderful is about to happen, or dreams, wishes, hopes and miracles do come true. The funny thing about birthday’s, is that there is something always so magical about them. I hope that never goes away. We should never lose that childish innocence we have in believing in the beauty of this world and the greater good in other people. We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.– George Bernard Shaw The older I get, the less I need presents. I love presents.  I appreciate the thought others put into buying them and I am always thankful for them.  Instead of presents this year, …

Cheers to helping feed our future!

  Saucha Conscious Living is not only working to provide nutritiously delicious vegan meals and fully loaded with health benefits Kombucha, they are also raising awareness for Feed Our Future Cayman.  Britta and her team have started a wonderful initiative and anyone can join in to help support their goal to raise funds for Feed Our Future Cayman.  All you have to do is purchase a bottle of limited edition Cran Marnier Kombucha or Pumpkin Spice Kombucha. When you purchase a limited edition flavor, $1 from each small bottle and $2 from each large bottle are donated by Saucha, and goes towards benefiting Feed Our Future Cayman. The Taste Of Fall Perfectly timed to arrive at fall, Saucha Conscious Living has a new limited edition flavor, Pumpkin Spice Kombucha.  A new and highly anticipated flavor encapsulates the essence of fall- it’s that time of year we start thinking about pumpkin pie. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.- Aesop Last year, Saucha Conscious Living raised $500 with their original Seasonal Flavor, Cran Marnier, fondly referred to as …

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 …

Spreading Christmas Cheer: Goodwill To All

A wonderful way to grant some Christmas wishes and spread some holiday cheer is to make a donation to a local charity or volunteer your time in helping them with their efforts to make a difference in the world.  In the words of Winston Churchill, ” We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  This Christmas consider supporting and raising awareness for these wonderful local charities working towards making the world a better place, and improving the lives of so many people. Below I have listed some wonderful local charities-  I wanted to highlight these charities and help raise awareness for them. Cayman’s ARK: Acts of Random Kindness  This year I was delighted to help Cayman’s ARK by donating a bag of goodies for their charity drive at Camana Bay. Feed Our Future You can help make a difference in the life of a child.  Their mission is simple, it’s “to provide children in need school meals.”  Did you know? “Current statistics show that over 20% of …
