Oh what a night! We packaged 600 bottles of My Kind of Cool Aid last night in little bags with a business card. My friend and cousin came over to help with the task. Actually my amazing kids filled the bags with the polishes for me on Monday and last night we added the business cards. Juan had the fun of packing the boxes and today $6,000 worth of polish is making it's way to Los Angeles, CA to the HollyRod.org Foundation. We were asked to donate product for the gift bags for their annual Design Care event. HollyRod supports education and assistance for individuals and families who are dealing with Parkinson's and Autism. I do not have a personal association with either of these things. However, I am a huge fan of the show, The Talk in which Holly Robinson Peete is one of the hosts. I DVR the show everyday. It is my guilty pleasure. (Although this Casey Anthony trial has been ruining that for me for several weeks now! Grrr!) From watching this show I have seen how much this foundation means to Holly Robinson Peete and what it means to the families her foundation has touched. I admit a few episodes during autism awareness month this past April even made me teary eyed! Through her openess and desire to make people's lives better, even though I do not have a personal connection to either Parkinson's or Autism, I now have an emotional connection.
