Hey, hey, hey,

Whew! Thank You all SO Much!!! With the donations that were given in person (Yes, I will come get the donation if you don’t like doing the online thing) and online, I am about halfway there with about a week to go!

If you could find a spare second to let people know it’s happening, I’d be so even more grateful than I already am (if that’s possible).

Support has come from some unexpected places. This weekend I performed on the Robin Byrd (of Debbie Does Dallas & Cable Access fame) Live Show & was given much love. 🙂 I could write all day about the people who have shared the link and helped me get the word out but I know you have a life to lead so here’s a short list:

Jimi of Gureje in Brooklyn hooked up some fashions so I can be fly in Milan.

Where to Donate – In 3 Great Ideas

file9101262998451

Asking for donations and receiving are challenges for myself and several creative people I know.  Where to donate?  So many causes so little time! I have been overwhelmingly humbled and gratitude filled by how many people have shared my campaign to get to the Milan Burlesque Awards on the Facebook pages and Twitter feeds, newsletters and more.  This is my 100th blog post so, I decided to pay it forward and tell you all about three other campaigns that are also going on.

1) Heels on Wheels does amazing work all over the country bringing awareness to important issues in very entertaining and creative ways:  shows, open mics and skill shares for example.  NY-ers you’ll be able to get a taste of what they do because I’ll be performing with these ladies in NY on May 5th at Triskelion in Brooklyn.

2) Camera Ready Kutz has been inspiring me for decades with how industrious she is as a small biz owner.  This barber shop has been among her most successful business ventures and it is ready to grow with a little help. Those of you who go to the barber shop especially know what a great experience being in the right one can be!

3) Urban Erotika has been creating spaces for adults to get sensual entertainment for a decade now.  I had the pleasure of performing at their 10th Anniversary show.  Now they want to document the 10 years of luscious.

Heels on Wheels!

All Things Are Possible

“Disregard appearances, condition, in fact all evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire. Rest in the assumption that you are already what you want to be, for in that determined assumption, you and your infinite being are merged in creative unity, and with your infinite being, all things are possible.” – Neville Goddard
