Illustration Friday - Wilderness



So this week's word for Illustration Friday is "wilderness". First thought that came to mind was "the wild", then nature, then high winds, tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes...all catastrophies which of course led me to the think about the devastation in Haiti. Seems like everything is leading thoughts to that... i want to help so i donate to charity (my charity of choice is Wyclef Jean's charity Yele.org) and am now collecting shoes that Soles4Souls will ship to Haiti. You can do these things to. It's so easy. And desperately needed. And there are so many other charities that are reputable - such as Oxfam and Doctors Without Borders...so many more... Wish i was in a position to put on some workboots and fly down there, but i'm still not comfortable leaving my girls for long stretches... Give if you can...every little bit will help them...

Great ideas for lending a helping hand. I've got lots of shoes I could donate and I bet the neighbors do, too.

Great Illustration, too. You have such a nice style.
