Another week of goodness at The 70273 Project Heartquarters . . .
Folks continue to pull up a log around The 70273 Project campfire (a.k.a. Facebook group). Some speak English (277 sit around that digital campfire), others speak French (76 sit around that e-campfire), and some (like moi, for example), have s’mores in both digital campfires. Others (currently 757 of them), who must be on diets and thus stay away from s’mores, stop by and “like” our Facebook page. If you haven’t already, won’t you please join one or both of our Facebook groups (you can thank me later cause you’ve never met a more big-hearted, fun, caring group of people) and/or like our Facebook page? And hey, while you’re at it, how ’bout telling all your friends and family and ask them to do the same. Not only will you have a big time in the groups, but we need a big ole’ headcount to demonstrate interest and enthusiasm for potential grants and sponsorships.
As of this week, I’ve heard from people in 87 different countries.
And a drum roll, please . . .
Katell Renon, Chloe Grice, and I have been feverishly working behind the scenes the past several weeks to make something very special happen: Le Projet 70273 en Occitaine! The enthusiasm and dedication of these women and so many others who I’ll be introducing to you as we go along is beyond heartwarming. I’ll be writing a blog post about the exhibit this week, and just wait till you see where it’s going to be held. (Today will be my 7th French lesson, by the way, and according to my “teacher”, I’m now 3% fluent . . . which is a long way to go by next June, but I’ll get as close as I can and hope that the good people of Occitaine will find a way to enjoy my Franglais.) (With a Southern accent, of course.)
