My book of color, "A Dog Named Blue," was released about a year ago. The pages feature full color images of my paintings paired with clever color-centric phrases. You can see inside the book here, and order your own copy (or copies of any of my other publications) here. But keep on reading - you could win a copy, too!
Last week the Warrior Princess got her wings.
Those of you who have been long time subscribers know The Warrior Princess, a friend of my teenage daughter. When The Warrior Princess was diagnosed with leukemia last summer, many of you rallied by donating blood and platelets, purchasing artwork flagged as a fundraiser for her family, donating items for a charity event, and sending notes/cards /prayers of encouragement. You made a difference.
Because of your love and support, she rallied for an extended stay with us. But last week, that time ended, and we said goodbye, fittingly, at a funeral service capped by a community-wide group hug. Because that's what she did - The Warrior Princess brought people together to share love.
I want to keep that spirit alive in her honor. So here's my challenge:
Make a donation to your cause of choice, in whatever amount you can spare. If you don't have a cause of choice, The Warrior Princess's was Leader Dogs for the Blind.
Then comment over here. Tell me what cause you supported. (If you are comfortable sharing why, tell your story, too. There's always the most authentic and beautiful connections between a cause and their supporters.)
Make your donation and comment by 9pm EST on Wednesday, November 26th, 2014.
My daughter will choose a commenter from the pool entirely at random. This person will receive a signed paperback copy of my children's book "A Dog Named Blue." I will also tuck something special inside - like, perhaps, a gift certificate for a custom portrait.
Please make a note to return here after 9pm EST the 26th to see if you are the lucky winner, because you will need to supply me with shipping information!
Are you up for the challenge?
Hug someone today, Kim
