Remember the refugees?
After I finish writing this post, I’m going to bed. Upstairs, in a bed which rests above the carpet and under the roof. I am a recipient of The American Dream.
The refugee dream is simpler. A tent.
A tent keeps a family safe, a tent is $200. Not very much, really, but a little more than what I can do on my own.
The guys over at the UN introduced me to Clare, and she did this.
I’m a teeny tiny bit competitive, and I’m pretty sure that even without an office, I can do better.
On January 20th The Game Truck is coming here and we are having our very own Wii tournament. The Mommy Bloggers of LA (and our girlfriends) will have our very own wii tournament, and I challenge you to have one with your friends too.
Clare made it pretty easy, she also reminded me to reset the mii’s before you play (no, I have no idea what that means).
Here’s what I’m asking from you. If you’d like to have a Wii tournament to benefit the UNHCR let me know, I’d love to post your videos and if you need any help I’m here.
You can set up a fund raising page easily by joining my group over at the UNHCR and help spread the word.
Most importantly: The Game Truck party will serve as a practice, because I am officially challenging Splash News to a Virtual Tennis Match to benefit the UNHCR. Details to follow, but it’s the Mom Bloggers versus the Photogs, and if any one of you thinks that they have a team that can beat us… well, I challenge you too. Tentatively we are scheduled to compete in Redondo Beach, CA this spring.
*I want to thank The Game Truck, because I got halfway through explaining to them what I wanted to do, and they jumped right in with “we want to support that”
