Earth Day - Fun to Give Back

Here's some fun free things you can do to help our environment.

If you have a website or blog, you can head over to Brighter Planet, grab one of their buttons (like the one below), fill out their form to let them know, and they will offset 350 pounds of carbon in your name. That's like flicking off 100 lightbulbs for a day, or going two full weeks without your car!

Brighter Planet's 350 Challenge

No blog? No problem. Here are 15 places you can go where they will make a small donation (a few cents) for ever person who clicks on a certain link on their site:

Care 2 - Stop Global Warming
Care 2 - Save the Rainforest, Marine Wetland, and American Prairie
Care 2 - Save Baby Seals
Care 2 - Save Our Oceans
Care 2 - Save the Big Cats
Care 2 - Save the Primates
The Rainforest Site
Red Jelly Fish
The Ecology Fund
Race for the Rainforest
Land Care Niagara
The Environment Site
Oaks of the World
Save Forest (not in English)
Die Waldseite (not in English)

How it works is advertisers pay a few cents every time their ad is viewed, and these sites donate that money to environmental charities. There are also sites like this for other types of charity. Click Here to Learn More

Now, I'm not personally giving away anything on this post (like usual). This is more about giving back. But there is a nice giveaway going on at Madsen for a free bike (and biking in stead of driving is another good way to help the environment)! If you have a blog (or website or myspace or twitter or whatever) you can enter to win by putting up a link or button like the one below. (Click it to learn more)

Madsen Cycles Cargo Bikes

Or if you don't have a blog, website, etc...you can also enter to win one over at Focus Organic ...and they have a a lot of other great green giveaways going on right now, too.

Happy Earth Day Everyone!

Free Scripture Cards and Graphics

NOTE: The free scripture cards have already been given out, but you can still grab the free graphics. Details at the bottom of this post.

After I started doing shapes with my scribbleprints (in stead of just abstract pieces), a friend suggested I do a cross. It had been something I had considered doing before so I set down pen to paper and after several attempts came up with a cross shaped "scribble" that I liked, and began to fill it in (as I usually do with my scribbleprints).

It wasn't until later, when it was scanned and I was editing it on the computer, that I decided to add the nail-prints. It was easy enough--just select a circle and click the mouse...but what I didn't expect was how it would affect me. Just a click, and there was blood. So like the reality of the cross: just a careless word, a simple decision, easy as a mouse-click, and those little easy sins bring such harm into our world. And for that, to bring us forgiveness, Jesus suffered and bled.

And it came to me once again that I placed those nail-prints there...not just on my scribbled cross but on the real cross where he bled and died.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5 (NIV)

For Easter I thought I'd like to give away some scripture cards I've made with this artwork. All the cards for this giveaway (pictured below) have already been given out. If you would like to purchace a 100 pack you can click the image below and it will take you to my shop where I sell these. If you want to use this artwork on your website for free there is info on that below.

If you would like to use my cross artwork on my website or blog grab the code below to get the graphic pictured at the top of this post (if you change the code, please still include a link back to this post or my site here: http://galesgifts.windhavenweb.com/pierced ). And, I'd love it if you'ld leave me a comment to let me know where you used it. Thanks!
