Be a voice for Darfur

During the presidential debate last night, both Senator McCain and Senator Obama spoke with conviction about ending the genocide in Darfur.

It was an important moment for everyone who cares about stopping the violence and bringing peace and protection to the people of Darfur.

We need bold action on Darfur from the next president. And so Americans from all backgrounds, parties, and faiths are adding their voices together and signing postcards calling on the next president to act.

I added my voice—will you? Be a voice for Darfur by clicking here.

LA acquires HMFD

Ever heard of hands mouth and foot disease? No, not hoof and mouth disease. Leave that one to the cloven footed ones. HMFD. No? Well, here's what it does...

* Fever. Frequently fluctuating. Very high at times.

* Poor or no appetite.

* Sores. Rashes. Blisters...Guess where. Yep. Hands. Mouth. Feet. Mouth, by far, being the worst. Inside all over. And, outside on the lips.

* Aforementioned sores wake up the victim during the night. Often.

* Causes general fun-loving well-tempered cute little blond toddlers to turn into painfully possessed demon tornadoes at the drop of a hat.

* Very contagious. Not the best viral option with an infant in the house too.

* "There is no specific treatment for HFMD." Oh, really. Thanks. For nothing.

Run. Duck. Cover. Wash hands. Lysol. Don't kiss. Contain. Disinfect. Wash clothes. Wash skin. Bleach eyes. Shave head. Bathe in HCl.

HMFD, please go away!

Garage Sale-abration!

Thanks to all of our friends, neighbors and family that helped our cause by donating items to our garage sale this weekend.

In total we raised $375 to go toward The Well Water Project!

And, let us not forget the generous buyers that came out as well. Some didn't know the cause until they arrived. Dozens upon dozens had enthusiastic and hope-filled comments once they were educated that 100% of the money they spent was going directly toward building a well in Zimbabwe, Africa for a community who lacks clean water. To them goes a special thank you!

Want to donate some items yourself or make a donation? Drop us an email or leave us a comment and we'll get in touch with you.
