WINTER GATHERING

The urban homestead was host to yet another gathering.  One of our monthly gatherings where we invite some friends, supporters and musicians to our home for a potluck (the plates, cups you see in the photos are made from sugarcane and compostable) and impromptu jam session afterwards.

This time around guests came from far and wide – China, Ireland and as “close” as Modesto, CA & Portland Oregon.  Our very own United Nations!

The night’s music ensemble even included a few hits from the doo-wop 50’s!  Move over PBS.  😉

Once again the food spread was amazing, thanks to everyone for another great night of fellowship and awesome music!

Thanks C & S for your thoughtful gifts of chocolate!  Chocolate will win our hearts (and tastebuds) over every time.  Can’t help it we are Belgian and French – double chocolate whammy.  Thank you so much.

Wishing everyone a wonderful season and many blessings in the new year – see ya’ll next moth!

Full Plate

There’s loads of stuff on our plates as our grassroots organization prepare for launching some new projects in 2009.

Yep it’s that time of year again to meet and greet the new year with new directions and plans for 2009.

I can’t spill the beans just yet, but I can say that we are going to need your support more than ever.

I’m even considering having $1 donation campaign every month to help us get some of these projects off the ground.  Imagine, if everyone of our LHITC reader just contribute $1 every month we could offset our outreach efforts for the entire year!  That’s right,  just with some simple couch change from each and everyone of our site’s visitors we could cover all expenses for running this site(s) and outreach.  Not to mention continuing to grow with new projects like FreedomGardens.org

I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record, sorry, but if you haven’t already, please consider supporting our work through tax deductible donations , purchases via our online store or use the Free IGIVE or ISEARCh

We like to kick off the new year with some big plans and you can help.

Thank you all so very much for your support over the last year.   Our family wishes everyone a blessed holiday season and a bountiful and productive new year.

Oh, and I have some exciting news regarding the Dec 28th event so stay tuned for that and more!

    The isearchigive tool is GREAT. So far I’ve generated $.40 from searching, $.64 from a purchase *through iGive* on restaurants.com and $5.00 first purchase bonus for signing up with isearchigive (total $6.04). The funny thing about it is that the items that I bought through iGive – the discount coupons for a local restaurant – cost me all of $4!

    Make sure you are actually signed up for igive.com and the “donate” button on the toolbar is highlighted when you make your purchase – otherwise the sale will not be counted.

    Great service!

    Awesome idea about readers contributing $1 per month! You can count me in. How simple, easy and affordable…

    I can’t imagine not being able to read the blog/journal everyday or not being able to go to FreedomGardens.org… this is one of the best resources I have on the internet. Keep up the great work — I really do appreciate your time and efforts.
