Jewlery from NOVICA through igive & the Kiva Shopping Club




Its hard to think of changing the world by buying jewelry, but purchasing through NOVICA promotes artisans from around the world getting paid a fair price. And they have beautiful things. I bought two necklaced, both silver and amythest. I bought the one pictured above because it looked like one my avatar wears in second life.

Since I am a member of igive.com and signed up for the kiva shopping club, my purchases also helped Kiva loans. I have the toolbar set up so when I buy from an igive store my purchase are automatically recorded.

Hi there,

Carol from VolunteerMatch here. I know you’ve written about VolunteerMatch and volunteering on your blog in the past (and we happen to think that’s great!). I just wanted to keep you up to date on a newsworthy volunteer event coming up this Spring.

I’m not sure if you know it, but National Volunteer Week is coming up this April 27-May 3. It’s the biggest volunteering event on the calendar, and it’s always a good opportunity to encourage socially minded folks (like your readers) to participate in local issues.

If it helps, you are welcome to use our press release which you can find here:
http://www.volunteermatch.org/pressroom/pr/prshell.jsp?id=433

We have also posted lots of volunteer-related resources including banners, brochures and videos:

Keep up the good work, and thanks for your continued interest in volunteerism.

Sincerely.

Carol
Communications Coordinator
VolunteerMatch

P.S. - If you do NOT want to be kept informed about VolunteerMatch news, please let me know by emailing me at outreach@volunteermatch.org.

I love Novica jewelry too. I've been giving it out as gifts also.
