Happy Birthday to me!

,It’s midnight, which means I am officially 25 years old – WAHOO!! Thanks Mom for making this possible :) But Santa, you and I are still not on speaking terms.

My birthday is the one day of the year I can guilt trip people into doing things for me, so today, I would like to ask you that if I have done anything positive in your life, if I have helped you out in any way, please return the favor by helping me out and checking out some of my favorite charities. If you’re able, send them a little financial loving, because nothing makes me happier than doing some good in the world!

Kiva.org – small microloans ($25ish) that can completely transform the life of an entrepreneur in need

Thirst Relief – bringing my absolute favorite beverage (water!) to people who don’t have any

ASPCA – looking out for our furry friends in distress who can’t stand up for themselves

If you don’t have any money to spare, do me a big birthday favor and head over to Free Rice and fill out the vocab quiz 25 times, one for each year I’ve spent on this beautiful planet. Not only will you improve your vocabulary (which I love, as a former English major), but you’ll help feed hungry people worldwide!

Thanks guys! :)

Update: Holy cow, I just realized Free Rice has a TON of subjects, and multiple levels for each one. I am doing Level 5 English Grammar right now. This is TOTALLY my idea of fun!

    Stacy – Please forgive me. I tried to bring you gifts every year, but your mother wrapped them up in birthday wrapping paper and took all the glory. She even ate the milk and cookies you left me. What a witch! Please keep believing and now that you have your own home, I’ll bring you presents for real!
