Our Fiesta To Feed Families SIMPLE Service Event #Fiesta4Kids #SIMPLEService

I participated in this Simple Service Event on behalf of Champions For Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are 100% my own.         My children are pretty lucky. We may not be the wealthiest family... in fact we are far from it, but we can always make sure there is plenty of good food in their tummies. Unfortunately, that is not always the case for many other families. When summer rolls around, some families, who rely on schools for one or two good meals … [Read more...]

Our Book Drive Success #NickCFK #CBias

  If you remember a few days ago, I had posted that my daughter Katie and I were participating in the Champions For Kids Big Help Book Drive. You can read about it here.

We are thrilled to announce that in just 4 short days we were able to get 40 books to donate for the #NickCFK! How … [Read more...]

Katie And I Are Having A Book Drive For Headstart #NickCFK #CBias

  I was lucky enough to have been raised by readers. Both of my parents loved to read and in turn shared that love with my sisters and I.

In fact we currently have seven overflowing book shelves in our home! It really saddens me to think that some families can't afford books. I wanted to do something to help change … [Read more...]

Energizer Light Up A Life Champions for Kids Campaign – The Kit #CBias #EnergizerCFK

  A week or so ago I told you about the Energizer Light Up A Life Champions for Kids Campaign and how I was participating. If you didn't read that post, the reason that I wanted to partake was because in 1998, Maine had an extremely dangerous ice storm that left more than half the state without power for over 2 weeks. I don't think I could bear my kids or any other child being in that same situation, being cold and scared for that long. Our mission was to create an emergency kit … [Read more...]

Are You And Your Kids Prepared For A Winter Emergency? #EnergizerCFK #CBias

  Living in Maine can be a challenge, especially in the winter months. Our winters can be brutal. Back in 1998 we had a freak ice storm which left everything in a thick coating of ice which caused tree limbs to snap and break taking power lines down with them. [yframe url='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzM9I0xtT_0'] The devastation was widespread. Nearly half of Maine's population were without power, some for nearly 2 weeks and some even longer than that. All 16 counties were … [Read more...]
