Thinking Christmas Yet?



Well I know that I sent a mass email to some of you asking you to support the The Simon Poutney Foundation. For those of you I didn't ask, here's me asking you in a little bit of a different way.

My friend and an ex boyfriend, Simon Poultney, died a little over a year ago. His tragic death lead his family to immediately initiate a foundation in his name to complete and begin some of the visions that Simon had to help others live better lives. Simon was a super wicked guy, he was composed of a little bit of everything and he had ideas that, for a guy his age or for any age, would rock your socks off.

The Poultney family has a new ministry that is getting off the ground as of recently. There have been trips to Zambia and Zimbabwe in Africa this past summer in order to scope out an area that would be blessed by the foundation in community development. Africa is a continent close to the family's heart as that is where they are originally from. The Poultney's also have plans to assist in a local community development project in Alberta, where they currently reside.

All this to say, Jenny Poultney's book, Jameela's Jangles, is for sale and all of the profits go to the Simon Poultney Foundation. So if you're interested in supporting them and at the same time getting someone a cool and totally original gift, check out their newly formed website that will give you a little more information. It will give you a little more of a rundown on what projects they will be taking on.

If you would like to buy this book, I reccomend going to the The Simon Poutney Foundation website and contacting the Poultney's from there. This is because you can deal directly with the Poultney family and more of your proceeds will be received by the foundation, rather than going through the publishing company.

The Poultney's are possibly one of the greatest families I have ever been blessed to know. Their ability to take things in stride and still be glowing with Gods love continues to amaze me. This family is incredibly close to my heart and it would make me so incredibly happy if you would take the time to check out the site and even go so far as to buy just one book.

Thanks so much,

Andrea
