Another day. Another FUN holiday!!!!!!!!!
March 10th is …..
Wait for it …..
International Day of Awesomeness!!!!
And, their official tag line is:
“No one is perfect, but everyone can be awesome.”
The International Day of Awesomeness was created by Kevin Lawver at the suggestion of one of his interns. As a joke Kevin posted it to Twitter. Very soon after posting, a feed of tweets flooded his timeline in support of a special day to perform and celebrate feats of awesomeness.
AND… why March 10th??? Because it’s Chuck Norris’ birthday. We hear he is pretty awesome or at least that’s what Wikipedia says. You can decide for yourself, but we’re moving on to more awesomeness.
“Nobody’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome” is a reminder that we ALL have greatness inside. Don’t settle for mediocrity!!!!! Radiate that awesomeness out to the world, just like Chuck!!!
So, here is where we explain the title of this post and the pic. With International Women’s Day celebrated this week, we would like to tell you about a local charity support group by the name of WHO, Women Helping Others, in which the wise owl “who” is watching over us, is their logo.
Started in the fall of 2014, this group formed as a way of giving some of the women villagers a chance to connect while at the same time giving back to local charities that may need a little support financially.
Here’s the lowdown ….. a $20 tax-deductible donation is collected at the door for the designated charity (knock, knock) and everyone brings either a dish or a bottle of wine to share ….. let’s call it community and communion. Local businesses donate raffle prizes and, those raffle tickets sold raise the size of the donation.
Women Helping Others Mission: In every community there are neighbors needing a helping hand. WHO’s goal is to identify and support those in need of dignified giving.
The International Day of Awesomeness is a celebration that people are awesome everyday and their “feats of awesomeness” are rarely recognized.
Well, ladies … we recognize the good that you do and we thank you.
BTW … We will be sending this to the International Day of Awesomeness website to acknowledge your greatness!!!! (Singing now…. Let’s Hear it for the Girls!)
This is Safety Harbor, Florida and this is our village…
