Some of the prettiest pictures I've seen have been of these gorgeous little Indian girls. By that I mean from India. Dark, dark hair and pretty eyes, tan skin that I'm jealous of...all created beautifully to go with brightly colored clothes and gold jewelry... ok I'm jealous of that as well.

The people at AsOurOwn.org help protect these girls by rescuing them from exploitation on the streets of India. In their words, they:
Rescue, liberate, intervene, redeem, save
Protect, care for, shelter, shield, surround, secure
Empower, strengthen, equip, educate, invest and bring change
Most importantly... they love them as their own.
Lots of people prefer to support them by pledging to run a half marathon, but no, not me. I prefer to support them to the best of my ability by sitting on the couch and encouraging you to buy jewelry. I much prefer it this way. If you are hot to trot….feel free to join the others and pledge to run: http://asourown.org/take-action/i-will-run/
Run Forrest! Run!… nah…...Sparkle Leslie Sparkle!
