Poetic Partnership

Several months ago, a fellow Western Washington University alum contacted me out of the blue with an idea.

Based in Port Townsend, Jordan Hartt runs an online literary magazine called "Conversations Across Borders" -- a project he started with the idea that people might want to read poetry while simultaneously helping support literacy around the world.

We immediately saw the potential for partnership between these two causes close to our hearts, and we began working on the idea to feature Cura's new secondary school as a recipient of the donations made through the CAB site. That idea is coming to fruition now, which you can see if you visit the Cura page here!

Please consider buying a poem or two, as well!

Chaka Khan at our Third Annual Safari Nights!

Thanks to Creative Visions, Lucy Woodward, Faryal Russell and Henson Studios, we are thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Safari Nights event. Check out the big name talent for the night... Chaka Khan! The event will primarily benefit Cura Orphanage, but will also support Creative Visions and the Chaka Khan Foundation, and it promises to be a really good time!

If you'll be in the Los Angeles area on 2 December, please get your TICKETS HERE -- and I'll see you there!

Cura in Print in December!

Thanks to our wonderful friends at Melinda Maria jewelry, Cura Orphanage has a mention in December's InStyle magazine.... look for us under Selena Gomez on page 74! Of course, we'd also love it if you'd find us on the jeweler's website, too -- a Cura necklace would make a great holiday gift...

Watch, too, for more information about Cura's mention in the December issue of Town & Country. Many thanks to everyone who helps get the word out about the work we do!
