GET: Everyone Should Sleep in Silk at Least Once

The world would be a better place. That's just the truth. All silk is not created equal, (I realized this when I was nine and my godmother, Carolina H., proved it to me at lunch one day in a cute little bodega in a lovely upper class neighborhood in Lima) but any silk will do, really. Given all of the harshness in the world today, the hard edges of reality, the angularity of moving through time, I think it would be good for everyone to consider how to get even a tiny square of silk for just a quick snuggle. To that effect, I'd like to announce the launch of a new foundation - Silks for Success. We will gather unwanted swatches of silk from manufacturers world wide and redistibute them to as many people as humanly possible in an environmentally correct way. We think that dropping squares of silk from well-marked and decorated hot air balloons would serve the triple purpose of leaving virtually no carbon footprint, getting our heartfelt softness-for-everone message out and providing the tools for everyone to participate (by dropping the silks out of the basket to the earth below.) If you are interested in donating any silk that you have left over from gowns, undergarments, furnishings, please send them to Silks for Success, Capitol Hill Celebrity Efforts, 201 4th Street, SE, Washington, DC 20003. Please use only recyclable materials in your package. The whole good team is just thrilled!
