It is the end of the year. Let's end it relaxing, eating and having fun with friends at our favorite tea house!
December's Green Drinks is going to be a little different. There will be no speaker just an open coversation. We will be reflecting on the past year and sharing our hopes and intentions for 2013. Come out and enjoy some great food, drink and company!
We would also like to do something to help those in need locally and abroad. Our November speaker from Clean the World (www.cleantheworld.com) will tell us all about their great organization. I would love to help them with their great mission and turn our December meeting into a soap drive as well. Here is a blurb from their website
Every 10 seconds, a child dies from a disease that could have been prevented with proper hygiene. The bar soap your group will be collecting, will be used to save lives. It will be used in the hygiene kits we make and distribute to domestic homeless shelters here in the US or sent to one of the 45 countries we distribute to that greatly need bar soap. Clean the World is providing needed hygiene kits to those in affected areas of New Jersey and New York City. The kits consist of hygiene items including soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. They meet the basic hygiene needs of families in need after the devastating storm.
Please bring your unused soap to our December meeting. For information as to what type of soap they accept please go here http://cleantheworld.org/donate-soap.asp. You can also message me if you have a question (Julie Levine) on meetup and I can try go get you an answer.
I look forwad to seeing you all there and ending this year with all of you!
