Join Auntie Anne’s & Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer

 

Childhood Cancer

Cancer is an ugly word. Unless it’s your zodiac sign no one ever wants to utter that word. Cancer is cruel. It has no limits and knows no boundaries. It doesn’t care if you are young or old, black or white, Italian or Irish, rich or poor. Cancer can strike anyone, anywhere at anytime.

Cancer has touched my life over the years. My grandfather had breast cancer, my great-grandmother died from ovarian cancer, my mother-in-law died from pancreatic cancer, my brother-in-law had cancer and a family friend died from brain cancer at the young age of 11. I recently went back to work and learned the site’s director had a cancerous tumor on her ovary. She’s only 24. They removed it and thankfully she’s doing OK.

Cancer is difficult for anyone to deal with. I think it’s even harder when it strikes children. They have their whole lives ahead of them. No one wants to watch a precious, innocent child deal with this sometimes fatal disease. It breaks my heart when I hear about a young warrior who is battling this cruel disease.

Victoria

One such Mini but Mighty Hero is Victoria. Victoria lives in Houston, Texas. Victor’s battle began when she was only six months old. Now four years old, she’s happily in remission. Her mom proudly writes, “Victoria is my hero because she has been through so much more than I could imagine going through myself. She has always been a positive and happy person.”

It’s wonderful to hear that through it all Victoria has remained hopeful and happy. That is very important not only for the child but also their families.

I hope and pray that Victoria’s cancer forever remains in remission and she goes on to have a long, happy and healthy life that she deserves.

Victoria is just one of many Mini but Mighty Heroes.

Auntie Anne’s and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation have joined forces to help raise awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer.

Auntie Anne’s makes those delicious pretzels you often see sold at the mall. Their Sweet Almond is my favorite. My family and I often enjoy an Auntie Anne’s pretzel or another one of their yummy snacks when we go to the mall.

The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has been helping to fight childhood cancer for many years. It was started by a four year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996 – 2004). She told her family that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to help raise money to find a cure for all children who had cancer. Her selfless act of kindness and good will towards others helped shaped her simple idea of a lemonade stand into the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Thousands of volunteers across the country carry on her legacy of hope. To date the foundation has raised over $75 million dollars and helped fund 375 research projects nationwide. Alex would be very pleased. If only she lived long enough to see her idea bloom and grow like it has.

Please check out this brief video to see how Auntie Anne’s and the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation have partnered to help find a cure.

 

There is something YOU can do to help. From July 28, 2014 – September 15, 2014 you can donate to the Join the Mighty Fight Campaign.

Here is a little more information about the campaign.

This summer, our goal is to find cures for children who are in the mighty fight of their life against cancer. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these mini fighters. How can you help? By donating, you’re helping Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation fund potentially life-saving cancer. Here is what your donation could fund:

  • $5: Supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation one cup at a time.
  • $15: Provides a gas card to help a family drive to a hospital for treatment
  • $25: Funds a half hour of childhood cancer research
  • $50: Funds one hour of childhood cancer research
  • $100: Enables a family to reside at a nearby hotel so they can stay close to their child receiving treatment
  • $400: Funds one day of childhood cancer research

If we reach our goal of $35,000, we will help fund 700 hours of childhood cancer research! In appreciation of your donation, Auntie Anne’s will send all donors a $1 off coupon, valid at participating U.S. stores, within 7-10 days.

We also believe a small donation goes a mighty long way. For every share of the Mighty Fight, Auntie Anne’s, Inc. will donate $0.25 (the cost of a cup of lemonade!) towards childhood cancer research.

I hope you will consider joining the fight and help the campaign reach it’s goal. Every little bit helps. Even if you can only donate $1.00 it will help.

Perhaps the next time you are waiting on line to get your morning mocha latte you might consider giving it up for just one morning and donate that $5 to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

For more information or to make a donation visit the Join the Mighty Fight campaign page.

What does it mean to have a “Childlike Summer”?

 

Child Summer

It’s summer time – a time for lounging by the pool, splashing in the waves at the beach, riding bikes, blowing bubbles, camping, making S’mores and catching fireflies.

When you were a child, what things did you enjoy doing the most during the summer? For me it was spending time with my cousins, building forts in the woods, riding our bikes into town, swimming in our grandfather’s pool and having ice cream at the local ice cream shop.

Most children look forward to summer – but not all children. Some children dread the summer months because for them it means going to bed hungry at night and not knowing where their next meal is coming from.

Many children around the country live in food insecure homes. Most of these children participate in a school meal program to ensure that they get a decent meal at school. Sometimes it’s the only meal they get in a day.

When school is not in session these same children are left to worry about where there next meal is coming from.

Food insecure families are everywhere. Your co-worker, neighbor or even your friend could live in a food insecure household. Due to the stigma associated with food insecurities most people don’t make it a point to share with others that they are struggling and finding it hard to put food on the table for their family.

ConAgra Food has teamed up with Feeding America on a campaign to fight against hunger during the summer months. With the help of some bloggers like myself we pinned some great pins on the Child Like Summer Pinterest board that Feeding America created.

This is a wonderful Pinterest board filled with crafts ideas, activities, recipes and more. I’d like to encourage you to stop by and check it out for yourself.

Here is the link for your convenience – A Childlike Summer Pinterest Board.

All children should experience a childlike summer. They shouldn’t have to worry about not having enough to eat.

Child Hunger

There are ways YOU can help.

Donating food to your local Feeding America or food bank is a great way to start. Non-perishable foods are always welcome and in some areas perishable foods too. Please check with your local food bank for a list of items they need.

Whenever I go shopping for my family and see a sale on foods like canned goods and cereals I always try to pick up some extras so that my family and I can donate them to our local food bank. I think this is a great activity the whole family can do – even the youngest member. Your family can box up the food you wish to donate and together bring it to your local food bank to donate. While you are doing this it’s important to discuss with your child/children why this is important and what their donations mean to others who don’t have much.

If it’s possible to donate your time volunteers are always in need. When I was down in Tampa, Florida I helped out at a local food bank giving food to the people who showed up to collect it. I also had the opportunity to tour a local food bank warehouse. Although there was a lot of food there they certainly could use more. Not only that volunteers are needed to help sort the foods and package it up to be delivered to those in need or put on the shelves where people can “shop” for what they need.

People are also needed to package foods for children from food insecure homes too.

Here are some photos from my trip.

 

You can also help by donating money and/or helping to spread the word about child hunger that is happening right now in your own “backyard”. It’s also important that you let your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers know that hunger happens year round – not just around the holidays when most people tend to donate food. It would also help out a lot of you can spread the word about children from food insecure homes that do not get meals on a regular basis during the summer months.

One of the easiest ways you can help is by simply watching this fun video by YouTube sensation Kid President. Simply by watching this cute video you can help raise money for Feeding America. For every view, like or share of this video (below) the ConAgra Foods Foundation will donate the money to Feeding America equivalent to one meal – up to million meals.¹

 

You can also visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and click on the “taking action” tab for more information.

To find meal sites in your area please call the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479).

What ways do you think YOU and your family could get involved to help abolish child hunger?

What is your idea of a “childlike summer”?

Do you have any personal experiences when it comes to child hunger or food insecurity?

Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from my readers.

Schools Out! Find out why this is NOT a good thing for some children #HungerFreeSummer

 

Food-4-Kids

School is out for the summer for most people around the country. For most children that means playing from dawn to dusk, staying up late, sleeping in, going on vacations with their families, lazy days spent by the pool and not having a care or worry in the world. For some children summer is not necessarily a good thing. That is because they will no longer have access to free or low cost meals. This puts them at greater risk of being hungry. It’s hard to have fun and enjoy your summer when all you can focus on is when and where your  next meal is coming from.

Twenty one MILLION children receive free or low cost meals during school. That translates in to about one in five children living in food insecure homes. ONE IN FIVE! Statistically speaking if you took your child and four random classmates, one of those five children is living in a food insecure home.

If you follow my blog regularly you probably have read my posts about child hunger, Child Hunger Ends Here and Feeding America. It’s something I feel strongly about. No child should have to go hungry, and no parents should have to stress about not knowing if/when they can feed their child.

If you think food insecure families are only in other countries, you are wrong. Food insecure families are right here in the United States – in your own “backyard”. They could be your co-worker, a child’s classmate or even your neighbor. Just because you have a home and drive a car does not mean you have plenty of food. Sometimes families have no choice but to give up their basic needs – like food – for the sake of being able to have a roof over their head or a car that can take a parent to/from their job.

FATB

I live in the suburbs of New York City. We have plenty of million dollar mansions around here. Our local food bank serves up to 70 families food every single day. That might not sound like a lot but I live in a very tiny county. I can literally drive from one end of our county to the other in about 20 minutes (depending on traffic).

I will admit that many years ago when our almost 15 year old son was an infant we had to make a couple of visits to the food bank. Our son needed special formula which was over $200 a case (which lasted about 10 days). Not to mention a lot of medical bills. We could barely afford diapers let alone anything else. My mom came to the rescue many times, but there were a few times I had to stop by the food bank. To look at our family you wouldn’t think we would need to. THANKFULLY it was only temporary.

Sometimes the only decent meal a child gets is at school through one of the various food programs. When school is out for the summer those meals disappear.

I remember my visit to the Feeding America site in Tampa, Florida a few years back. One the walls in one of the hallways were paper plates that were decorated by children. Each child wrote a special message to congress about how much the food programs mean to them. I wish I could find the folder with all of the photos from my visit so I can share more of the plates with readers. Here are a couple that I found in an old post.

Plate-1

Plate-2

My visit to Tampa, which included helping out at a local food bank and a visit to the Feeding America Tampa Bay warehouse, was truly an eye opening experience.

ConAgra Foods is doing their part to help end child hunger with their Child Hunger Ends Here program.

ConAgra Foods has partnered with Feeding America for their Child Hunger Ends Here program. Through their efforts more than 335 million pounds of of food have been collected and used to help feed the hungry as well as $38 million dollars which has gone towards child hunger programs.

ConAgra Foods Foundation wants to help raise awareness of summertime child hunger.

This summer 26 food banks in 18 states will be utilizing Hunger-Free grants, funded by ConAgra Foods Foundation, to expand their summer feeding programs so that more kids can receive healthy meals this summer.

The program’s goal is to reach 25% more children during the summer than before. They are working hard towards reaching that goal. The program is now in it’s fifth year and has helped deliver 3.8 million meals to children in food insecure homes during the summer months.

The only thing a child should worry about during the summer is how to squeeze in as much fun as they can before school starts – not if/when they are going to eat that day.

Please join in the fight against child hunger and help put food on the table for hungry children this summer. There are many ways you can help out.

One way to help is simply by watching a video and helping to spread the word. For every view, like or share of this video (below) the ConAgra Foods Foundation will donate the money to Feeding America equivalent to one meal – up to million meals.¹

This little boy is hysterical. He’s the “Kid President”. He cracks me up. I love his facial expressions. I’d vote for him for president. :-)

 

In addition please consider volunteering. Volunteers are needed to help transport food, prepare lunches for children, help clean up, sort food or assist with activities for children. You can visit www.FeedingAmerica.org to find a food bank near you. If there isn’t a Feeding America food bank in your area you can always volunteer at another local food bank in your area. If they don’t have a summer program for children perhaps you can help set one up.

You can also visit www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and click on the “taking action” tab for more information.

Of course donating food and money is always welcome. I wrote a post about what kinds of foods that food pantries need. You can read it here – What Types of Food Donations Do Food Banks Need. You can also call your local food bank and ask if there is anything specific they need.

To find meal sites in your area please call the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479).

I plan on having my kids volunteer at a local food bank this summer. Not only does it give them something constructive to do with their time that doesn’t involve TV or their cellphones, I also think it’s a great learning experience. Perhaps they’ll be a bit humbled to realize that there are so many hungry people in our community.

Please consider joining the fight to end child hunger.

Get a Frosty and Give Back with Wendy’s Father’s Day Frosty Weekend Promotion

 

Wendy's Father's Day Frosty Weekend

 

Father’s Day is this weekend. It’s a time to celebrate that very special man in your life whether it’s your father, stepfather, grandfather or uncle.

Sometimes it’s not so much the gifts that make Father’s Day special. Sometimes it’s just spending quality time together that matters most. Even something simple as a backyard barbecue, tossing a ball around or enjoying ice cream is all dad needs to feel special.

Speaking of ice cream, Father’s Day weekend (Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15) participating Wendy’s are having a Father’s Day Frosty Weekend promotion. In addition to enjoying some sweet ice cream together your purchases will also help the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (DTFA) which helps over 134,000 children in North America waiting in foster care until they can find their “forever homes”.

I don’t normally post press release information but I will when I feel it’s important enough to share with others.

Get a Frosty. Give back. Wendy’s is making Father’s Day even sweeter with its fan-favorite Father’s Day Frosty Weekend promotion.

Throughout Father’s Day Frosty Weekend – Saturday, June 14, and Sunday, June 15 – participating Wendy’s restaurants will donate 50 cents from the sale of every Frosty product to support the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption® (DTFA), an organization that works to help find permanent, loving families for the more than 134,000 children in North America waiting in foster care to be adopted.

“Father’s Day is the perfect time to continue my dad’s legacy to help children in foster care find permanent, loving dads (and moms),” said Wendy Thomas, daughter of Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas, who was adopted as a boy.

“In the past eight years, Wendy’s has raised more than $12 million through our Father’s Day Frosty weekend program,” said Liz Geraghty, Vice President, Brand Marketing. “This promotion gives us a chance to rally fans around a cause that’s at the core of Wendy’s, and provide our customers with a sweet way to give back to the community.”

To  help shine a light on the life-changing impact of uniting children waiting in foster care with permanent, loving families, Wendy’s is releasing a second video in the “In Their Own Words” video series. The videos show real stories of adoption from the voices of adopted children and their families. William and Elizabeth Wilder, parents to Christopher (12) and Elizabeth (4), share their journey of reuniting two biological siblings into their family through adoption. To view the second video, visit: http://youtu.be/PyoF3dPgAzU.

Wendy’s Father’s Day Frosty Weekend promotion is part of a year-long national cause marketing campaign including national TV and radio advertising, a new multi-media adoption hub, the “In Their Own Words” video series, a blue ribbon icon and in-restaurant quarterly fundraisers.

I think this is a great campaign. I like that they are helping children in foster care to find their own dads that they can one day share an ice cream with. I feel that ALL children deserve a “forever home”.

Wendy’s Frosty Floats and other Frosty treats are delicious too. :-)

If you would like to learn more about the Father’s Day Frosty Weekend and ways to give back visit www.Wendys.com/Adoption.

For more information about The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption please visit DaveThomasFoundation.org, or call 1-800-ASK-DTFA.

Oral-B teams up with the March of Dimes to celebrate Fatherhood’s littlest moments that power dad’s biggest smiles

 

Me and my father when he came home from Japan where he was stationed in the military.

Me and my father when he came home from Japan where he was stationed in the military.

Father’s Day is just around the corner. I have been blessed with two very special men in my life – My biological father and my paternal grandfather who helped raised me (I refer to him as my dad). Sadly my dad passed way last year. Thankfully my father is still very much a big part of my life. I am grateful that he’s best friends with my husband too.

My husband is also a great father. I know he doesn’t think that sometimes because we have teenagers and they tend to make us question our parenting skills (teens love to push those buttons and make us seem like we’re the worse parents ever…sigh…). I have seen him in action. I have seen him climb on monkey bars and get down on the floor to play with the kids. He’s always been a “hands on dad”, right down to 3 AM feedings and diaper changes.

Just last night my husband gave our son his very first razor and watched as he shaved for the first time on his own (my husband has helped him the past few times since he started shaving). My husband had the biggest smile on his face. He felt so proud to hand our son his own razor and watch him shave. On the other hand I was all misty eyed because it’s just more proof that our youngest is no longer a “child”.

There are so many times my husband finds reason to smile when it comes to our kids. They make him laugh. He’s a big kid himself so he’s always joking around with them. He even makes ME smile all the time.

My husband is not one to show his teeth when he smiles. He’s conditioned himself not to have a toothy smile. It’s because he needs braces. His mom was a widow and had to raise six children on her own after his father died when he was 11 years old. She didn’t have money for braces and as a result he has a few crooked teeth that he’s ashamed of. It’s a shame too because he takes excellent care of his teeth.

Oral-B, a leader in oral care, has teamed up with the March of Dimes for Father’s day, as well as joined forces with New York Giant’s quarterback Eli Manning and his children to help celebrate fatherhood’s little moments. These little moments can be helping your son shave for the first time, teaching your child to ride a bike, or simply sitting at the table and coloring together. Big or small there are plenty of moments that make us smile.

“Winning football games is an incredible feeling, but there’s still nothing quite like throwing around the football with my dad in the front yard like I used to as a kid, or tucking my daughters in at night,” said Manning. “That’s why I’m proud to partner with Oral-B and March of Dimes this Father’s Day – to celebrate those little moments between fathers and children, no matter where they live or what they do.”

I agree. I remember when I was little. I used to like to watch my father shave. He would always take a little bit of shaving cream and wipe it on the tip of  my nose. We also used to watch old Godzilla movies together.

The March of Dimes, a leading organization for healthy, happy families, now in its second year partnering with Oral-B on the Power of Dad campaign. We actually met another March of Dimes spokesperson a few years ago – Dee Snider, lead singer of Twisted Sister. It was totally by chance. We were at a local park and he was hosting a motorcycle ride for the March of Dimes and stopped at the same park. He was happy to take a picture with us (our kids were less than amused. LOL!).

Dee Snider

“While the March of Dimes strives to see every baby be born strong and healthy, we also value the importance of bringing a smile to your baby’s face,” said Meri-Margaret Deoudes, vice president of Strategic Alliances, Corporate Relations and Cause Marketing for March of Dimes. “And we’re so happy to partner with Oral-B and Eli Manning to celebrate fathers everywhere, who are doing just that.”

In honor of dad’s everywhere, Oral-B is asking everyone to share their favorite fatherhood moment and photo. Simply upload your favorite fatherhood moment photo and include the hashtag #PowerofDad. You can also visit www.PowerofDad.com to see special moments shared by others as well as to watch a special video. In addition you can get a $7.00 off coupon for the purchase of the purchase of an Oral-B toothbrush, including their The new Oral-B BLACK 7000. This is like the “Mercedes” version of a powered toothbrush. LOL! It’s one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced power brush available.

Oral B logo

The Oral-B BLACK 7000 would make a great gift for Father’s Day too. That way that special man in your life can care for their “pearly whites” to help keep their smiles clean and well cared for.

OralB

“This Father’s Day, we want to celebrate dads by giving them the power to keep smiling,” said Michelle Lohman, communications manager for Oral-B. “Oral-B power brushes help keep dads’ smiles healthy and beautiful, every step of the way.”

If you would like more information about Oral-B visit OralB.com. You can also check the brand out on Facebook, Twitter (@OralB) and on Instagram. You can also join in on the conversation by using the hashtag #PowerofDad.

I hope you’ll join in. I’d love to check out your special #PowerofDad moments. Please consider sharing them on your social media sites. You are welcome to hare the links in the comment section of this post so I can check them out. I am happy to “like” and “retweet” them for you too.

ETERNITY Calvin Klein 25th Anniversary Edition Bottles & The ETERNITY Project which supports Every Mother Counts

 

Calvin Klein Eternity 25th Anniversary

I love being a blogger for many reasons, most especially meeting new people, making new friends and enjoying new experiences. Another fun “perk” to being a blogger are the wonderful surprises that show up at my door.

Last week I received a package containing two bottles of Calvin Klein ETERNITY – one perfume for women and one cologne for men. I have heard of ETERNITY before, and I have seen commercials for the scent, but I have never actually smelled it before. I was excited to give it a try (the perfume) and have my husband try out the cologne.

These were more than just bottles of fragrances – these were special Anniversary Edition bottles of ETERNITY to celebrate the scent’s 25th Anniversary. It’s hard to tell from the above photo (one I shared on Instagram a week ago @SheScribes). The bottles are silver and almost look like mirrors. They are really pretty to look at.

The shape of the bottles are similar to the current shapes available, with the exception of the lovely silver-like look to them.

ETERNITY

I can’t believe this intoxicating  fragrance has been around for 25 years and this is the first time I am smelling it.

I really like the scent. I thought it would be strong and bold, but it’s not. It’s actually very “light” with a crisp, subtle scent to it. It’s strong when you first spray it on but then the scent becomes lighter and changes it’s “tones” and the scent is slightly different then when it’s first applied.

The women’s perfume has a sweet, floral-like scent to it. It’s a romantic scent.

You could easily wear this year round but in my opinion it seems best suited for the carefree days of Spring and Summer due to the light and airiness of the scent.

The same applies for the men’s cologne. It’s also light and airy, but it does have a touch of masculinity to it. It’s the ideal “every day” type of cologne. It it’s great for the office, running errands, doing projects around the house or hanging out with the guys.

I also think it smells sexy on my husband. :-)

The scent works well with teenage boys too. My 14 1/2 year old has worn it a few times. The last thing he needs is an overpowering scent when he goes to school. ETERNITY for men provides him with just enough scent to smell good without overpowering him. I’m curious to know what the girls think of it? He won’t dare tell us that (he’s very shy).

Look for Calvin Klein’s ETERNITY 25th Annivesary Edition Bottles where ever fine perfumes and colognes are sold.

In addition, Calvin Klein has also launched the ENTERNITY Project – a new global philanthropic initiative.

The ETERNITY Project was created to foster the message of eternal love and commitment through the support of various charitable endeavors to help better individuals and communities.

The ETERNITY Project has currently teamed up with Every Mother Counts (EMC), a charity founded by the face of ETERNITY, Christy Turlington Burns, to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.

Every Mother Counts

As part of their partnership, until May 31st, all proceeds from the U.S. sales of these limited edition ETERNITY 25th Anniversary bottles will go towards Every Mother Counts – up to $30,000. I only wish I knew about this sooner so that I could have mentioned it to my readers. There are still a few days left.

If you are looking for a belated Mother’s Day gift, or a Father’s Day gift, these special ETERNITY bottles would make for a wonderful gift. The perfume or cologne would also make for a great Graduation gift – or even a “just because” gift for yourself. Knowing that the purchase will go towards a worthwhile charity makes it even better.

For more information about Calvin Klein visit the official website, www.CalvinKlein.com. You can also find the brand on all the major social network sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and Google+). The social media links are found on the bottom left of the web site’s home page.

If you would like to learn more about Every Mother Counts visit www.EveryMotherCounts.org. You can also find the charity on all the social media sites. The links are found across the top of the site’s homepage.

Are you a fan of ETERNITY? Have you ever tried the scent before? Do you have another favorite Calvin Klein scent? Feel free to share your thoughts.
