31 Cups in 3 Days to Make a Girl’s Dream Come True

Pick pretty much any shirt or dress from my wardrobe, and there's a 99% chance that I've spilled something on it at some point. So when I saw the “No Spill” Kangaroo Cup on KickStarter, it grabbed my attention.

Once I read the background, I knew I wanted a Kangaroo Cup of my very own – not only for the lure of a stain-free future, but because I was so inspired and touched by the story behind it:

The Story

A couple years ago my daughter came up with an invention to help her grandfather (my dad) who has Parkinson's disease, and was frequently spilling his drinks. After a bit of experimentation, she made him a plastic cup that didn't tip and was comfortable. About a year later, she noticed that I had wrecked a keyboard or two with spilled coffee, and she made me a ceramic version at a local pottery studio. Using it, I realized what a great cup it was and I asked her if she wanted to try to bring it to production. What followed was the adventure of a lifetime for our family that had us up to our elbows in clay, traveling to the world's capital of fine porcelain, JingDeZhen, China to prepare for a production run, and culminating in this Kickstarter project.

What started out a simple weekend project has become almost an obsession to build the world's best cup. I've had the time of my life working with my daughter to bring this product to production, and to show her that an idea can become reality.

… This campaign is not just about bringing a product to production, it is about sending a message to every parent and every kid with an invention (which is just about every kid) that in history's blink of an eye, we suddenly find ourselves living in a world where that dream can be made real.

So, to every kid (of any age) with an idea. This project is dedicated to you!

As of the time I am writing this, Lily has three days to raise the $521 needed to reach the $6,000 goal to make her project a success. One Kangaroo Cup costs $17 (shipping included). That's 31 Kangaroo Cups – just over ten cups a day.

Let's help Lily reach her dream! A Kangaroo Cup is the perfect holiday gift for your favorite slob. Even better, you'll be giving a gift with a meaningful, inspirational story behind it.

Click here to support Lily's project and buy your very own Kangaroo Cup.

Understandably, not everyone has money to spare these days – but you can still help. Pledges can be any amount (as low as $1), so you don't need to buy a cup to be a backer.

Even if you can't afford to support the project financially, you can help by spreading the word, and sharing information about the project with as many people as possible in the next three days.

Project 137 (Happy Birthday, Patti!)

Project 137 - love well, live fully, let go deeply, and make a difference.

I just signed up to join Patti Digh on her Project 137.  Today’s Day #1 !

It’s not too late to sign up (before you stop reading because you can’t afford any additional expenses, I’ll get to that in a second, so keep reading) and I hope you’ll join us as well.

Patti explains it better than I can,  so I encourage you to visit her site.  Below is a small excerpt to give you a taste of what it’s all about:

Every day for 137 days, you’ll receive an email with an inspiration, a question, an “assignment,” or a happy.

You’ll be asked to examine, in various ways, what needs doing in your life. And then, without the amount of reflection that simply paralyzes you, to act on those things, to do them. As if time were running short, which it is, of course.

This isn’t a class, but a project, and a gathering. It is an experiment in community.

I’ve known Patti (online) for a couple years now – she’s a sharp, funny, talented woman. The other thing we have in common (haha) is that she lost her stepfather to lung cancer, so her blog’s inspiration strikes a particular chord with me.

Registration is through EventBrite, the fee is pay-what-you-can. All payments are going towards helping cover medical expenses for Patti’s husband’s cancer treatment.

Hello world!

EnjoyToday.com is officially on WordPress!

This site represents a celebration of who I am today. It also represents my dreams and goals for the future.

At almost 39 years old, I’ve finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up and am positioned on the path to get there:  I’m in the process of becoming an ADHD/Life Coach for women.

For more about me, you can also visit my personal blog: The Fearless Blogger.

That’s who I am and where I’m going.  Now a little about EnjoyToday.com:

This site is “under construction” – there’s still a bit of fine (and not-so-fine) tuning to be done.

Granted, it will always be a work in progress (just like I am!), but it’s still in it’s very early stages.  In fact, it’s official birthday isn’t until July 31st (since this is my birthday present to myself to share with you!).

Among other things, I plan to use this site to share the lessons I’ve learned, tips I’ve found useful, affirmations, gratitude and love with the rest of the (online) world.

In the meantime, please read about EnjoyToday.com (parts of it may look familiar!) and its inspiration.

Enjoy Today!
