BlogCatalog Bloggers for Good Fundraising Challenge

Face it, our schools just simply don't have the funding that we know they need and deserve. The art and music departments are usually the ones that suffer the most. Some of our schools need computers and lack in the latest reading material.

This is our chance to propose what we feel is needed in our schools, maybe in your specific classroom. At, there are many proposals worth donating to.

I would love to see more art and music programs, supplies and instruments available to all our children. Check out where you get to choose what you would like to participate in, whether it be for New Orleans or America's Next top model. There are many ways to contribute: Donate, make a proposal or by Spreading the word about your specific cause. Sadly, there are no proposals from Oklahoma; You can change that. You can search their site to see existing projects/proposals or make your own.

This site is great for Parents, Educators, Supporters or organizations interested in making a difference. Donating is easy. Our schools need our help. Encourage others to become involved.

Spread the Word

There are many ways to volunteer locally. Just ask. It's that simple.
This may be a great oppurtunity to start that community project and share that talent you possess. Maybe YOU would like to donate some time as a local art/music teacher. may be just the way to make that dream possible!

*Wow, thank you Blogger--my post just disappeared and couldn't be recovered--the only draft auto saved was the title.
Lesson to be learned would be to use notepad first lol.

____________Adoptees ISO Birthfamily_________

I'll be posting some tips on my personal blog for those in search of family separated by adoption. I've been active again in some e-groups and forums and thought I'd share some experiences with adoptees and birthfamilies in search, as well as adopted families who are supportive of possible reunion. Many adoptive parents are equally curious and eager to learn of the children's birth heritage. Closed records protect/benefit no one.

________Health and Fitness Facts_____________

I found this article and thought I would share it here.

Hallucinating, vomiting and unable to stand, but guides refused water to dying trekker

Family sues survival school after death of fit 29-year-old on wilderness course

"Dave is dead." The words came at the end of the second day of what was supposed to be a character-forming experience, a chance for 12 people to "experience the wilderness to the fullest".

Instead, the trek through the mountains and desert of Utah in the mid-western US left David Buschow, a fit 29-year-old US air force veteran and security guard from New York dehydrated and hallucinating, his eyes bulging and tongue swollen. Less than 10 hours after setting off from the group's overnight camp on the second day, Buschow collapsed and died.

This really makes one think about safety and drinking plenty of water. Listen to your bodies. Exercise is supposed to improve your life, in my opinion, not end it.

It's great to push a little but learn your limits. Vital signs are pretty useful.
There are clues even without a stethoscope or pulse ox; such as: when it's 100 degrees out and you have the chills while watching the mother ship hover above, well, it may be time to rest and drink a glass of water.

Safety first.
