Awards and a little help…

I am so thrilled. I have 2 new awards, The PROXIMIDADE award from Melody and ‘I love your blog’ from Alice. Thanks girls, you are the best 🙂
Something about the awards:
“This blog invests and believes in the Proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award.”
The ‘I love your blog” Award:  means I love your blog 🙂
I have to pass these on to 8 bloggers, I mean really, 8? I want to give it to everyone. It’s excruciating to choose.
But still…
Back to you Melody and
Back to you Alice
Now onto something else.

I would once again like to draw your attention to the Gorilla Wildlife direct blog. I have this blog in my Google reader and I am always amazed by the kind of dedication these rangers show for this cause.
This is something I copied from the blog.

Having spent a lifetime fighting poaching and habitat destruction, I am convinced that it is inadequate funding that is the major challenge that we must overcome in order to secure the world’s endangered species and wilderness places.

To achieve this, we have come up with a new approach to raising funds for conservation. Using the internet, we bring supporters and conservationists together through online diaries or blogs to enable individual donors around the world to communicate directly with the people that they
are funding.

You could fund the conservation of the Gorilla’s or you could find a suitable project to fund, there are too many going on, Just take a look at their site. Or you could just spread the word.

There is a lovely review of ‘Gorillas in the mist’ on Nymeth’s blog. Do check it out here if you haven’t.
