Post image for be a whistle blower for peace

the new year is a time to make resolutions, and to think about your goals for the year ahead.  one thing we’re thinking about here at free people are what causes we feel most strongly about and would like make an effort to support.  there are so many important causes out there, ranging from the environment and poverty to animal and human rights.  one of the girls here at the office told me about falling whistles, an organization dedicated to helping children affected by war in the democratic republic of congo and raising awareness to bring peace to the war-torn country.  i was incredibly moved by the story… check out the video:

Falling Whistles – Be a Whistleblower for Peace in Congo from Falling Whistles on Vimeo.

you can read more about falling whistles here.

at the very least, we would like to help bring attention to important causes, and we hope to work harder to find ways to do more… and we would like to know what causes you, our readers, are most passionate about to make sure that we are aware. please tell us about it in the comments section!

Post image for on the road – final post

well we have come to the end of our first book club selection, jack kerouac’s on the road.

i’ve read the book several times, but this time i really took notice of the writing style.  kerouac got a lot of criticism for his skill as a writer due to the fact that it was written in a creative burst over a span of a few weeks, in one continuous scroll.  however, the content for the book was gathered from notebooks that he kept throughout the duration of his travels, and personally i think that the hurried, frantic nature of the text perfectly suits the subject matter.  it captures the impulsiveness of the adventures that Kerouac and his friends embarked on and the freedom of being on the road without any real destination.

i leave you with this…

“our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. but no matter, the road is life.”

p.s. we’ll be picking the next book shortly, so stay tuned…

Hey---his writing style is what I absolutely love most about his books....so incredibly creative in the way he describes ordinary things...I've underlined and dogeared so many pages!! I'm not finished yet though... (p.s. I didn't receive my gift either..hoping it's still in the mail! How weird!)

hey everyone! you ready for the last thursday poll of the year?? last week i asked about your favorite winter whites, and the results were very close but the rows of ruffles dress just beat out the we the free little white tee with 34% of the vote.

i’ve been talking a lot about hair accessories this week, and how great they are to dress up a new year’s eve outfit. well we have some really great ones right now so i thought i’d ask which one you all like best…
