You know I go on about design and style, Christmas frivolities and other stuff that I love. But I see an image like the one below and read the article in the China Daily it absolutely sobers me up. The earthquake in Sichuan, China, in May this year has left millions homeless and now they brace for the coming winter. They aren't thinking about advent calendars and designer bandages, they're thinking about survival and a future with no certainties.
Especially now as the season for giving is upon us, it's important for us to give to others - like the people in Sichuan or needy people in our own country or community. Are you going to really give this year?
