Two friends of mine are launching a wonderful website soon called Clay.com. It is a charitable site where you can sell things that you don't need, and instead of keeping the cash (a la craigslist), the money goes to charity. They have a pretty great visual campaign showing people with items that may not be doing any good. I am one of those people. To find out when the site goes live, go to Clay.com to sign-up for an alert and see yours truly... in short shorts.
For Christmas I decided to give my two nieces some books. To make it fun, I made videos of myself reading the books and ringing a doorbell whenever the girls needed to turn the pages. One of the orphans from my ANNIE cast helped me pick out the best material. I was especially taken with Sean Bryan's, A GIRL AND HER GATOR. Turns out, so were a lot of people. My mother forwarded my youtube video to the author who passed it around the publishing house. I received an email from an editor the other day, and she asked if she could send me Sean Bryan's latest, THE JUGGLING PUG as a thank you. How great! 2012, the year of viral storytelling.
