Speaking of weekends, this past weekend was amazing in the fact that I went to two GREAT shows in both Charleston, SC and Charlotte, NC. They were both for one incredible cause, and I wanted to share the word with you. My amazing friend, and my high school Environmental Studies works for an organization called Restoring Eden (click the link!), and they do all sorts of amazing environmental work. They have paired up with ilovemountains.org to raise awareness about Mountain Top Removal, particularly in our beloved Appalachian Mountains. It is definitely something worth fighting for, and reading about. If you click on this link HERE you can sign the petition and join the cause on the right of their homepage. It's incredibly simple and it makes a big difference, so take a moment and do that please!
My wonderful boyfriend plays in a 3 piece indie rock band based here out of Charlotte, Older Brother, (they're amazing!) and they rocked out this weekend in two benefit shows for Ending Mountain Top Removal along with the talented Uncle Mountain of Asheville NC, Dewi Sant (from Minneapolis), and the incredible Wylie from Charleston, South Carolina.
It was overall two great events, and the awareness it was able to spread for this cause makes it even better!
