The Cho Brothers Help Give Good Karma

I’m a huge fan of reality shows , and one of my favorites is The Amazing Race. Well this season, my favorite team was eliminated about halfway through the race. It was the Cho brothers, Edwin and Godwin. They were just the most kind and honest guys that I think have ever played the game.

The good news is that they went back home and started a business to help starting artists. They help sell the artists’ work, then a portion of the profits go to do good work. It’s their own version of “random acts of kindness.”

I love the concept. It’s a little like the “pay it forward” idea.

If you are interested in helping new artists get started or in helping other worthy causes, you should go check out their site:

Blog Tipping – December

Blog Tipping

Well, it’s December 1st and that means that it’s blog tipping day! Here are my three recommended blogs for this month:

About: Jewelry Making & Jewelry & Beading are two blogs written by my fellow b5media blogger, Tammy Powley. Tammy shares her years of jewelry making wisdom with a real flair for tackling topics we all wonder about. She has project ideas, tips for newbies and does it all with a real flair. Visit her blogs and enjoy her expertise.

Katie Hacker’s Beading Blog – Katie shows us her latest jewelry creations and even has a regular email newsletter with lots of tips and tricks. I read her blog often and think you’ll enjoy it too.

The Jewelry Blog – This blog is the place to see the latest designs and piecs from Cluny Grey. If you are like me and love to just look through beautiful jewelry, this is a blog you won’t want to miss. Check it out!

piecesorry about November’s blog tipping omission – I was busy setting up and starting to blog for three new blogs. I just forgot to do it. Not to worry, I’m back on schedule watch for blog tipping each month on this blog on the first day of the month. Happy Holidays!!
