Mom Bloggers are Changing The Present, and I am one of them!

I just discovered this exciting nonprofit website, It lets anyone give the gift of a donation in their friend's name, and a personalized greeting card makes it especially memorable. This is so much better than another pair of fuzzy slippers! It is even tax-deductible.

You can help support any school, classroom, school sports team, or school band of your choice, as well as any nonprofit.

My kids' school really needs help, so you will see a bunch of charitable gifts for our school below. When you add a school or teacher gift to your cart, please provide this info:

Teacher: Jane Smith
Sample Elementary School
123 Main Street
Everywhere, NY 11111

Here are three great ways to help:
1. Make the gift of a donation in a friend's name, in lieu of buying traditional presents. Your friend will be thrilled, and you will really help the students.
2. Create your own wish list (sort of like mine) to support students, and ask people to donate here instead of buying you presents that you may not want.
3. Please share with parents, grandparents, and others who care about students. Tell schools and teachers about this site, too.

Yeah, my wish list also has one of my favorite nonprofits.

Thank you!

Microchip Two Pets - Two permanent IDs

American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals


To help increase the chances that a lost animal will be recovered, the ASPCA relies on microchip identification. An electronic chip, about the size of a grain of rice and carrying a unique code, is implanted between a pet’s shoulder blades. The code is entered into a database that links up the animal’s family’s address and contact information. Similar to a routine vaccination, this procedure is quick and painless. If a lost animal is brought to a shelter or vet’s office, the facility will use a scanner to check the dog or cat for a microchip. Your gift will allow us to microchip two adoptable animals in our shelter, affording peace of mind for the new pet parents and helping to ensure a speedy return in the event that the animals inadvertently become lost.
