Since my last post I’ve had a lot of people tell me they want an Uppity Women Unite t-shirt. Which I think is a marvelous idea, just marvelous. I’m not a t-shirt sporting slogans wearer myself, but that doesn’t mean the rest of you can’t be.
But here’s the thing. With the money it would cost to buy that t-shirt, you could do something even better to show just what an Uppity Woman you are. See that sidebar over there? On the side? In the bar? Well, by donating to that fund you will be helping a single mother go to college. And everyone knows, if you improve the life of a mother, you improve the life of more than one person.
So come on Uppity friends (that includes you too, guys. You don’t have to be a woman to be uppity), let’s unite and support our sisters. I’m going to throw in $5, and if every one of my followers did too, that’d be like fifteen bucks.
Now I’ll be honest. My motive for supporting this cause aren’t completely altruistic. By posting this and donating, I’ll be entered in a contest wherein I could win a reprieve from writing my own Christmas letter. Now, now, I know many of you are fans of my annual Christmas letter and look forward to its arrival each year. But that’s some pressure people. And I may not be up for the task this year. But my hilarious friend DeNae is more than able and I assure you, reading about the 2011 exploits of the Larsen family in her words will not disappoint.
And I guess that’s about all I’ve got to say today. A little less wordy than usual, I know. But I’m the co-chair of my kids’ school book fair this week. Which means I’m up to my eyeballs in books, words and kids. So I’m kind of tired of looking at all of those things and am having a lot of trouble thinking straight.
Not too worry though. It’s nothing that a Diet Coke can’t fix. Just trying to make it to 7 a.m. before I crack it open.
