Where I fit in the box of crayons....

Do you ever get that feeling like there's more out there? That's the feeling that brought me to beyond borders. The global community is growing, and I have not yet become a part of it. I want to be a contributing citizen to the global community through participation and action. Over the years, I have developed an appreciation for diversity and difference, and look for other ways that people are doing things. There’s a whole world out there beyond our North American perspective that has the potential to change the way I see things, and to change my life. Gahndi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." I think we should not only find the change within ourselves, but also take part in the change we want to see in the world. I hope that Beyond Borders will offer a medium in which I can be the change I want to see in the world, and also take part in that change.

Christmas Fundraising

We are 37 sleeps till Christmas... 2 weeks till the end of term! There certainly is a lot to do.

As the term comes to a close, the COOKIE business is heating up. Tina and I are up to our elbows in flour and icing sugar! So far we have 75 dozen cookies ordered. We have already delivered over 30 doz... more than 360 COOKIES!!!!!
(nearly one for every day of the year!)

I am loving being in the cookie business. not only are we bringing in alot of money for Beyond Borders, there is something touching about the smile that envelopes a person's face when you deliver cookies. AND their enjoyment in EATING cookies, is second to none!!!

We are slowly climbing towards our goal. The more orders that come through, the better. we are hoping that people order earlier rather than later so that we can effectively manage our time. something tells me I'm not gonna want to SEE a Christmas cookie this year when all is said and done.
