Kind hearted Etsians are donating proceeds from the sale of their wonderful artwork to support charitable organizations involved with the Japan Tsunami recovery effort. Buy something beautiful and support the tremendous need for help in Japan.  Here is an Etsy treasury of a very small portion of these artists… to find other Etsy sellers who are supporting this effort, enter “japan”, or “japan relief”, or “tsunami relief” into the search box on the Etsy home page.

A friend of mine forwarded me an email from a mutual friend and co-worker who is a breast cancer survivor for six months now.  This is a great way to support breast cancer prevention and research for the cure – it takes just 4 minutes of your time to watch this fun video made by 136 former NFL cheerleaders; when you do, United Healthcare donates to Susan G Komen for the Cure (breast cancer information, prevention and research for the cure).

As of now, there have been 3,101,789 views.

At 1 million, UHC will donate $100,000 (done)

At 5 million, they’ll donate another $50,000…help make this happen.

Please watch the video, and just as importantly, pass this link and message on to your network of family, friends and colleagues.
