Julia the Reader

Hello! I'm Julia.

I work in children's book publishing. I'm a digital marketing fancypants by work week and a modern day Mary Poppins by weekend. I believe it's called living the dream.

The videos addresses the question-”if you could give anything in the world, what would it be?” Gap says that in Crowley and Selvadurai’s appearance, the founders chose to give to Camp Interactive, which is an organization that empowers inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology. —Tech Crunch

Foursquare founders (and many more) star in GAP ad for giving. Like this video on Facebook and GAP will donate $1 to each of profiled charities.

Amazingly Inspiring Ted Talk by Jessica Jackley

debbiestier:

Please watch until the end.  SO moving.  Soooooooo inspiring.  

"And that—forget the tools, forget the moving around of resources, that stuff’s easy—believing in each other, really being sure when push comes to shove that each one of us can do amazing things in the world, that is what can turn our stories into love stories and our collective story into one that continually perpeutates hope and good things for all of us. So that, this belief in each other, knowing that without a doubt, and practicing that everyday in whatever you do, that’s what I believe will change the world and make tomorrow better than today."

-Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva.org
