San Francisco Master Class
So I was hearing chatter online that the class was almost full, so I had to make a decision fast... so I had all the money pulled into my checking account so I could make the purchase for the class and the flight.
I have to confess that I had an incredibly SLOW day at work. I spent a lot of time reading the news. And the news is full of information about the earthquake in Haiti. So instead of paying for the class and buying a plane ticket up to SF, I gave the money for registration and airfare to the United Nations Foundation.
It seemed like the wiser thing to do with my money. I mean, I was ready to drop close to $300 on something that I certainly would enjoy, but would definitely be classified as frivolous. I think the donation was worth it.
I hope anyone who reads this post takes a minute to think about whether or not you really need that extra blush, eye shadow, or kit and maybe donates some money to a charity too.
