Rima Koleilat and Neda Doany have issued a great challenge and invitation in honor of BLOG ACTION DAY, which will take place on October 15!! Everyone is welcome to participate – young and old – and middle-age too – bloggers and non-bloggers – artists and non-artists. So everyone!

These rules (and more) are copied from their sites:
Rules are simple for this Action Day Challenge:
- Come up with some image to promote the environmental cause of your choice.
- Write one line of text to accompany your image.
- Any artistic medium can be used: you can do a painting, a collage, a photomontage, photo, fabric piece, crayons, drawing … anything that you feel comfortable with. These are only suggestions, not guidelines.
- Submit only ONE entry please. Seriously, they mean it this time. Here’s why:
- Rima and Neda have decided to dedicate a whole section to this project on their online Maraya Galleries. Once an entry is received, it will be displayed on the home page of Maraya Galleries, in a slide window. (This is a lot of work to set up, and they want to be able to do it before the 15th of October, so have a heart, people, send them your best one, don’t ask them to choose for you – this one will be for all to see, not just their blog readers)
- They will post updates and deadlines on their blogs regularly … I will give you a hint when they do post any changes.
I encourage everyone to give it a try. Been wanting an excuse to try some digital program? Been wanting to try drawing or painting? How about, been wanting to try this digital camera you have?
All are encouraged to join in – this is all of us together saying we care about Mother Earth and helping her to continue to carry us along! Of course, I would pass anything along to them!
And still open to hear about your day – we, as humans, are part of the earth also!!
