Julia, the Ambassador

17 Oct

Julia Louis-Dreyfus wears the perfect tee. It’s not because it was designed by Wes Gordon of Carolina Herrera — although that’s a plus. It’s because 100 percent of this $35 T-shirt goes to charity.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the 2018 Saks Fifth Avenue Key to the Cure Ambassador, where this shirt is sold.

“I’m a breast cancer survivor so that is a huge part of my involvement with Saks’ Key To The Cure,” stated KTTC Ambassador Julia Louis-Dreyfus. “And, I’m absolutely thrilled that the AiRS Foundation is the beneficiary of the sales of the limited edition Key To The Cure t-shirt. Every penny from the t-shirt sales benefits the foundation, which helps women who are unable to afford breast reconstruction surgery post-mastectomy.”

I had to order this t-shirt at my local Saks store. The website said it was sold out, but there is a wait list. Note: It runs very small!

Memorable Memoirs

7 Oct

These two timely, immigrant stories transported me to countries I will never visit –Yeman and North Korea. The stories are compelling, suspenseful and inspiring.

Hyeonseo Lee grows up in North Korea revering the leader.
When she becomes a teenager, she sees that others are hungry and senses something is wrong. She walks across a frozen river to China. There she finds a new world and a new life on the run. Her identity needs to change often in order to be safe.

Mohammed Al Samawi is a devout Muslim in Yemen, but he becomes curious about other faiths when he reads the Bible. He connects on social media with Christians and Jews. He then receives death threats for communicating with the enemy. He escapes with the help of his new interfaith friends.
