The One World One Heart Event is now over!!!
Thank you all for participating!
I am so excited to be participating for the 2nd and Final time in the One World One Heart Give-Away!
Now, let's get started, shall we?
A Bit About Me
Hi! I'm Cecilia, The Greenest Mermaid!
I'm just another blogger, a sirenophile, a social worker, a wanna-be-world traveler, and an observer of the world around me. Please feel free to click on any of the links on the link bar above to learn more about who I am in this world, and to check out some of the other blogs I own.
Now, I tried to think of something that I could create with my own hands, but I'm not as creative as many of my friends are. But, I do have 2 door prizes to offer to all of you wonderful folks who stop by and leave a comment!
For my runner-up prize, I wanted to share part of my dream. Last year, one of the major highlights was going to Greece with Jenny. I sometimes can't believe that I've made it to Greece, but it's exciting to remember that I did.
So, for my runner-up prize, I want to give away a framed photograph of one of my favorite images I captured.
|"Santorini Coral" July 2010|
The image will be 5x7 matte print, with a white frame.
So, for my grand prize I wanted to give another t-shirt in honor of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center Walk that I am walking in once again on April 10th.
As I said last year, I want to give away something that has meaning for me, and will hopefully have meaning for some of you as well.
Every year since 2007, I've participated in the annual Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) Walk. It's a cause that I personally have some stake in (click on this link if you have the energy to learn more about why).
But, I'm not about being victimized. Instead, I choose to focus more on the strengths of rising above it all.
So, I gathered my friends and started a team in 2008. In 2009, we raised close to $4000 for this wonderful organization! I was very proud of my team. In 2010, we raised $905 as a team.
Our team name is the "Maganda Malakas Sirenas" - Beautiful Strong Mermaids.
In Philippine mythology, Maganda was the first woman and Malakas was the first man. While that has some implications, I think it's important to think that those two qualities are within each of us, as are the masculine and feminine and other dualities. I feel proud to be able to wear those two monikers on my shirt, and it helps to bring energy and life into an otherwise difficult situation.
I hope that you visit BARCC's website and learn about some of the myths about sexual assault. I hope that this will help people feel that they are able to open up communication lines with people who love them.
But here is an image of last year's prize.
