First of all – Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers of the world! And of course to the children of the world who made them mothers (hey, that means all of us)!

As you probably already know by now, if you leave a comment here today, you will be raising money for FINCA International, an organization that provides loans to low-income micro entrepreneurs, focusing especially on women.

For each person that will post a comment on SmellyBlog on today, I will donate $1 to FINCA International. This way I hope that there will be more small businesses to make the business world more diverse and help more women gain independence – financially and otherwise.

I also encourage you to visit and leave a comment on the other blogs that participate in this project “Benevolent Blogging”. These bloggers which will donate from their own personal money to the charity of their choice are:

You are more than welcome to leave comments on any of the posts for today, Sunday, May 14th, 2006, and I will count you in!

Happy Mother's Day!

Funnily enough, my mother wore so many fragrances, I can't think of one which defines her -- although, when I smell one of them, I instantly think of my mother.

Now my grandmother? Chanel No. 5. Without a doubt.
