Day 230/365: Reminder of A.Fan's promise a.k.a Sharing The Love

So here I am just now, looking happy and windswept, as we walked home from a particularly fun inner-Sydney 'Modern Family-esque' baby-warming of twin human joeys**. It was such a joy to spend time around two little human beings who have entered this world surrounded with much love from their family and friends. I was so loved-up in fact that I felt the time was right to don this *gorgeous* mother and bub Ken Done koala silk scarf. And you know, there were a lot of smiles around this afternoon, so Ken's scarf is about right indeed.

(** We doubled-checked: baby koalas are indeed called joeys. Apparently twin koalas are super rare, so quite different from our human experience, and perhaps why Ken only stuck to one joey with his prolific images of them - seen here and here and here and here and here!)

Speaking of sharing the *love* I don't feel I've paid enough attention to A. Fan's recent comment that they would donate $10 for every photo sent in by someone who was the lucky winner of a WKBD eBay purchase. I want to make sure we all understand what this offer means, so I'm bullet-pointing to show my seriousness:
  • So far, A. Fan has been true on all promises of donations. That means the money is a surety folks: no false promises here! :-)
  • Which means, with a relatively minimal effort on your part, we can raise even more $$$ for The Social Studio. All you've got to do is take your photo in your newly acquired KD and send it in to me here (jackie@goodfashionforgood.com). You can do it, I believe in you!
  • And even if you didn't win an item at auction, why not exert some *good peer pressure* on your fellow Done-nuts and tell us how much you want to see them create their very own Done moment!
Got to love it!

Oh very remiss of me, yes I saw the challenge and promptly forgot. I won 3 auctions, but one has already left my possession and is now in 6th Grade in Sydney! Promise photos of the other 2 a.s.a.p.

A lovely outfit for a baby warming. The Koalas are cute, but i can't imagine who would wear that scarf except you ofcourse. Those pants are fabulous. I hope some of the ebayers send in a photo.

love the back links- I don't remember seeing that hot pink jumper the first time around. It's not really something you'd forget.

A.Fan- I won the only non-done item of the ebay- but will send in a photo.

Look at you all: so much love in the air! Chatting between yourselves, making deals, keeping up the support - brilliant!

Needless to say, I'm super excited at the prospect of more photos! And that such *exciting* photos will bring in more financial support for TSS, from the generosity of A.Fan, is a real *treat* too!

Glad the koalas proved popular too - he really did hammer out this image - didn't he?! Perhaps to an audience of people who loved Australia for our koala-'bears'!
