Every Tuesday here on my blog is Tuesday Muse-day. This morning, I took a minute to really look at the word "muse"...
verb (used without object)
1. to think or meditate in silence, as on some subject.
2. Archaic . to gaze meditatively or wonderingly.
verb (used with object)
3. to meditate on.
4. to comment thoughtfully or ruminate upon.
All of these uses of the word aptly apply to #AFundForJennie, and the viral support being shown for Jennie Perillo. Twitter is simply abuzz with love. I even saw my favorite celebrity chef, Richard Blais of Top Chef fame, retweet a #AFundForJennie tweet, because one of his fans asked him to. How cool is that?
Please look the growing auction list below and see if anything strikes your fancy, and consider taking part. If you'd like to contribute to Jennie's cause, but aren't able to participate in the auction, there is a donation page that is set-up where you can PayPal your contribution (click on the BWOB icon at the top-right of my blog). And if you aren't able to contribute financially, help spread the word - that is free! Facebook status, tweet, blog, email, heck - put a flyer up at your office!
