Loan to help weaving in Peru

 Nilda runs the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, a non-profit organization that employs more than 340 artisans to promote the empowerment of weavers through the revitalization and sustainable practice of Peruvian ancestral textiles in the Cusco region of Peru. For more than 25 years, Nilda has led the Center in its revival of traditional weaving practices and natural dye techniques. The Center has greatly suffered from the COVID-19 pandemic due to lack of tourism and not generating income from textiles sales. This loan will help Nilda reopen the Center and rebuild it after a year of lockdown.

Regenerative Collective

Made a donation to a friends group that has been doing good work. I met him through other activism and have been following his progress on facebook. Lots of people learning how to urban garden.

Money

 I sent 6 of my friends $500 through paypal.  Friends with kids and friends in the entertainment business. I told them the truth, my socialist heart wanted to make up for my capitalistic brain that likes to make money and I made a lot of money on the stock market this month.  

I'm a self-made millionaire, I came out of school $55,000 in debt in 1996.

Shower of Hope

I made a donation to the Shower of Hope today, to support my friend who organizes the volunteers. One of the incredible people in the world.

I was contacted by another friend who was writing a grant proposal with her church to help the homeless and wanted to include the shower. I passed on the contact info of the founder. They connected. Hopefully the grant will be funded.

I need to document my connections more. This is a good place for it.

Breadmaker

I bought a breadmaker for a friend who lost her job this week. Her husband lost his too. They have an autistic son. I'm sure he'll be making a lot of bread.

Cookies for troops

I bought Girls Scout cookies and sent them to the troops today.

For some reason it reminded me of this blog.
So long since i've posted.

But I always do try to change the world every day.

Help Boliva

I spent most of tonight thinking of ways of fundraising for Help Bolivia.  That's my sister and her husband's new non-profit.  Please consider being a monthly donor, they could really use the help their first year.

Housed a homeless person

Today I invited one of the clients from the Shower of Hope and her dog to come live with me.  Last week she had black eyes and a split lip and she needs to get off the street.
I have a friend/ex-employee staying here also stitching Halloween orders for me. She's unemployed and living in her van.
 And with the girl I brought in last year, that makes 3 I'm providing homes for.  But only 2 will stay for a while.
