Birthday wishes and gifts

What do you usually wish for on your birthday?  I'd like TWO presents, if you are willing to participate... of course it's up to you if you choose to give or not, all I ask is at least you take a look.

Am I being greedy? Not at all, as they are for someone else!
  • Firstly, I'd like you to make a difference to someone's life that you meet today or tomorrow (or every day if you wish)
Whether it be a smile, a kind gesture or help of any kind. They don't have to know it was you and it's even better if you do it for a stranger.

Further from home, you will have now heard about the Earthquake in Haiti where the death toll is around 200,000 with 250,000 injured that need treatment and upto 1.5 million homeless.

Around 36000 are listed as missing. That's nearly 100 that share the same birthday as me... AND YOU! There only misfortune was where they lived when this disaster struck.
  • So secondly, please go to the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) if you can afford to make even a small donation (details below), as every little helps. Otherwise just say a prayer for those on the other side of the planet to show the world that we care about everyone that we live with on this small Earth.  
  • Whatever you do, take that action now!
Thank you for your best wishes and gifts, knowing that by sharing with others, you improve the life of everyone around you - including yourself.
