Two Products Making A Difference

A purchase of Punjammis (sari-inspired pajamas) gives financial empowerment to women who are redeeming their lives from the sex trade in India.  (My daughter and I got to be models for their latest campaign. Fortunately this gig went better than the last time she tried modeling).  This company was founded by friends of mine and I love what they are doing for women in India.  I also love their cozy pajamas and I think you will, too.



A new CD of Lullabies from The Damnwells is available on itunes, and supports The Getty Owl Foundation, a newly established non-profit which was set up by the parents of a baby suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.  Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the leading genetic killer of infants and young children. It is a terminal, degenerative disease that results in the loss of nerves in the spinal cord and the weakness of the muscles connected with those nerves.  Most children affected have a life expectancy of under two years of age.  Researchers estimate that they are as close as only a few years away from finding a treatment and/or cure.  The purchase of this CD will help fund research for this disease.
