News correspondents like Ann Curry and Anderson Cooper who are on the ground in Japan delivering up to the minute news to keep us informed.
St Patrick who, as legend has it, was a humanitarian banishing snakes from Ireland, while giving us a fabulous reason to wear green.
So,today let's channel our inner humanitarian and give what we can to help those who are in dire need. When my daughter pulled $5 out of her piggy bank the other day she said, "Mom I only have a little to donate." And I replied, "Honey, a little green goes a long way."
Happy St Patrick's Day...
My Style Shout Out Tip: Even if you are not Irish, today is a great excuse to wear a little green and give a little green!
