Ringing in 2013

So the 21st of December came and went with no end of the world in sight - thankfully. 2012 has been an eventful year, so much so that it whizzed by.

We took you dining with us in Paris
We  wandered with you throughout the city and beyond
We toasted with you on Saturdays
We shared all sorts of things to do in Paris
We presented our photos to you to get you dreaming
We helped you with your search for your home away from home in a Paris vacation rental

I would like to thank all of you who followed us throughout the year and all those guests who put their trust in us. We hope that you enjoyed Paris and that we will see you again soon.

I hope to keep you just as entertained, informed and well accommodated in 2013. 

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Bonne Année!

World AIDS day December 1st 2012

Post by Yetunde Oshodi

I remember when I was in high school and we had a guest speaker come in on World AIDS day to talk to us about HIV/AIDS. I distinctly remember him asking the class if any of us knew anyone who was HIV positive. I think maybe just one of two people raised their hands. I often wonder if today the same group of people were sitting in a room and were asked this question, how the numbers would have changed. I knew no one at the time who was either living with or who had died from complications associated with HIV/AIDS. I wish I could still say the same today.

Doni Belau of Girls Guide to Paris, sent out an email asking us to consider putting up a donation button for her charity, Ubuntu Africa (UBA), who have put together a campaign to celebrate Dec. 1st World Aids Day with their Ambassador this year being actress/singer Vanessa Williams. Their objective is to educate people and raise money for the kids they take care of in South Africa who are HIV+. I must truthfully say that I was reticent at first, thinking, well why just South Africa after all my personal experience takes me to an entirely different country and wouldn't just a general donation to AIDS research be more in order. But then I took some time to think about it and I finally concluded that every little bit counts and to be honest I have no idea what my donation to a larger organization would really go towards. This seems so much more personal and real.  If ever we will one day be able to say that HIV/AIDS is no longer a part of our lives, we have to start somewhere and education is key.

I hope that you too will support UBA.

Donate Now - Ubuntu Africa

Every donation makes a difference … $2,500 supports one UBA child for a year; $500 provides a month of medical supplies; and $100 provides a hot meal to all 200 UBA children.
