Orca Out and About

Remember how I said that I wore my ludicrous whale hat to my graduate school holiday party a week ago? Well here’s the photographic proof. I got a lot of weird looks. Then I snapped a few campus photos, because the neo-gothic architecture is pretty.

Don’t forget to enter my Festivus giveaway

And now, because it's the holidays and we should all try to give something back (and not just during the holiday season), here's a list of various bloggers and the charitable organizations that they give to every year as compiled by Robyn over at Twitch Vintage. As Robyn describes it: "here are a list of charities chosen by other bloggers. Please feel free to repost your own version of this blog with these images and links if you feel so moved. Also please leave links to your own charities of choice in the comments. I will happily add them to my list as the day goes on." And I will do the same so feel free to leave links here and I'll add them to the post!

Paige of Barefoot And Vintage gave to Casa Pacifica
Indiana of Adored Austin gave to Music for the City
Merl of Clyde's Rebirth gave to a few local shelters where she has received her famous cats, Clyde and Mo
Nickie of Wild As A Mink gave to Barc Shelter
Lisa of Archives gave to Dire Straights Animal Companion Rescue
Grace of Money Smart Fashion gave to Last Chance Animal Rescue, Inc.
Alyson of Alyson is Neat gave to Invisible Children
Robyn of Twitch Vintage gave to All Children's Pediatric Research
Courtney at Sartorial Sidelines gave to Oxfam
Kristin at BonBon Rose Girls gave to Share Our Strength
Penny Dreadful Vintage gave to Oxfam

Ishmael gave to: Love146 and The Giving Spirit.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero? You're everything I would like to be! I want to wear a whale hat to a party. To anywhere, frankly. Go you!

I'm so psyched to answer your tag questions. Will definitely get to that this week (maybe, lol). Thanks for shining a light on charities, especially this time of year. Give give give! We have so much (relatively speaking).

Call Me Ishmael

LyddieGal said...

Oh, I'm all for outlandish hats. Why not? Just stay chic and warm!

Chic on the Cheap

Sanny said...

I don't think that whale hat is ludicrous at all. It's the opposite, chic and so one of a kind sort of hat! Awhhh.. I think it's really fab about the charities made by bloggers, I need to make one soon too.
