Dress: J. Crew Elinor dress in polka dot
Necklace: Kane County Flea Market
Shoes: Look at me. I'm dripping kids. You think I have time to shop for shoes?
First of all, pay no attention to the fact that Hadley and Nick's heads are five times bigger than their bodies and Lila is doing some kind of creepy exorcist neck contortion. Let's just say we had some "issues" getting everyone to look at the camera at once and I had to use some Amish Photoshop to give the impression that I have the perfect family. With elephantitis.
Okay, now down to business. Today is national blue and green day, and I'm joining lots of really cool bloggers to raise awareness for an awesome organization - Donate Life Missouri. We were tasked with styling an outfit in blue and green, which was a big ole challenge for me considering my idea of fashion forward is ordering the leopard print Snuggie vs. the solid brown one.
Already an organ donor? Great. Read no further. Get back to work before your boss unexpectedly pokes his head in your cubicle. Again.
No? Well, pull up a chair, my friend, while I regale you with my extensive knowledge of organs:
- A single donor can save the lives of up to eight people and enhance the lives of fifty more.
- Thousands of people die or suffer each year while waiting for an organ or tissue donation.
- Anyone can be a donor. People of all ages can donate - your medical condition at the time of death will determine what organs and tissues can be donated.
So now that I've done a thorough job of convincing you to donate, what do you do?
1. Join the registry here.
2. Don't live in Missouri? You can sign up here.
Easy peasy. You can also do it when you renew your license at the DMV and you'll get a cool little heart on your license, giving you some street cred the next time you buy whiskey at the grocery store.
You might want to be careful, though, because if you're in an accident and the police man sees the little heart he might think of his uncle on the waiting list for a kidney and take his sweet ass time calling for back-up.
Jeez, relax! Just a little organ donation humor. That doesn't happen - it's just an urban legend, like leprechauns or Eskimos.
Oh, and if you want to get in on the blue and green day action, just upload a pic of yourself in blue and green on their Facebook page (this one for Missouri residents, and this one for everyone else). Donate America will select the top 10 looks, and those lucky individuals will each receive a $100 Visa gift card. Donate Missouri will also be randomly selecting individuals to receive a Donate Life gift pack.
So sign the registry today. I promise you'll have a nice warm cozy feeling inside, sort of like wearing a Snuggie.
