A few weeks ago, Dolly Parton launched her official Tumblr page and I cannot get enough of this woman. Below are some of my favorite images but I really recommend you checking out this site. She is such a special woman that just seems to radiate love. Also have you ever heard of the Dolly Parton Imagination Libary? My sister Maya told me about it after she signed my nephew Jake up for this free book subscription and I think it is amazing. As the website explains:

 " Dolly's vision was to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Moreover, she could insure that every child would have books, regardless of their family’s income. Dolly’s Imagination Library became so popular that in the year 2000 she announced that she would make the program available for replication to any community that was willing to partner with her to support it locally. Since the initial program launch in the United States, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library has gone from just a few dozen books to nearly 40,000,000 books mailed to children in the United States, into Canada and across the proverbial pond into the United Kingdom!"

What a woman! 

An incredibly moving performance after the jump!



  2. Um, I LOVED her Oscar performance of Travelin Thru. Downloaded it almost immediately. Still listen to it a lot.
