Help Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom Fight Childhood Cancer During June’s Lemonade Days

We have been having a lot of rain lately, so we really lucked out when we picked Saturday, June 3rd for our day trip to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. We planned this family trip to celebrate my birthday on the 4th. Originally, I had wanted to go on the fourth and my daughter suggested the third. It was a very good idea, because it was raining buckets on the fourth.

Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom is located in Allentown, Pennsylvania. During the month of June, Dorney Park is  joining Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in their Lemonade Days to help make an impact in the fight against childhood cancer. During their Lemonade Days a portion of the proceeds from online ticket sales will go to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. To learn more about this great cause click HERE.

Check out the additional Summer Events & Attractions below:

• Coca-Cola Share a Coke – June 9-10
• Father’s Day Beef & Beer – June 18
• Independence Day Fireworks – July 4
• Christmas in July Breakfast with Santa – July 25
• Food Truck Rally – August 26-27

My kids love Dorney Park, my older kids love the roller coasters and thrill rides. My younger ones love Planet Snoopy and so do I! There are rides we all love to go on together as a family like that Road Rally where you get to drive gasoline powered “race cars” on a track. That is a must-do attraction for all of us every time we visit. My son Ethan was so excited to drive all by himself this year!

 

We have such a blast at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom and make lifetime memories. Check out our video compilation of our day there below.

If you live within driving distance or will be visiting the area, you should seriously consider a visit to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. We can’t wait to go again. If you have been to Dorney Park, let me know what you love most in the comments.

Teaching Kids Empathy To Prevent Animal Cruelty-#TeachEmpathy

red rover logo

In 2012 a 17-year-old boy in West Sacramento took a can of lighter fluid, dumped it on a cat, and lit the cat on fire. When people in the nearby park saw the ball of fire moving across the grass, they had no idea that there was an animal in pain under all those flames.

The cat was rescued by a non-profit organization headquartered in Sacramento, California called RedRover. Sadly this did not have a good ending for the poor cat who had to be put down as the extent of the burns was too great. The child was caught, and later when the police asked him why he did it, his response was “I just wasn’t thinking”.

#TeachEmpathy

I hate sharing such a horrendous story,  but it was the moment that made Nicole Forsyth, CEO of RedRover decide that the only way to prevent animal cruelty, was to stop it before it ever happened, and to do that – they had to teach children empathy for animals. The RedRover Readers program was born, and has since trained hundreds of teachers and educated thousands of students in classrooms across the country through stories and games to have compassion for animals.

This past May RedRover launched an innovative app that is designed to help kids ages 7-11 practice empathy skills. The Restricted Adventures of Raja includes an interactive graphic novel e-book and a game, both with English and Spanish language options.

The app uses curriculum from the highly successful RedRover Readers program. Parents and educators can use questions woven into the story to help kids identify the behaviors and emotions of animal and human characters and imagine how the characters are feeling, skills necessary for empathy. The app is available on iTunes and Google Play.

The innovative  has already helped kids understand the behavior and emotions of animals and people and has developed empathy skills in classrooms across the continent. You can stay in the loop with RedRover on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram.

I hope you check the app out and share this post so that we can help RedRover reach as many people as possible. Thank you for your support.

Show Gratitude With The #100GoodDeeds Bracelet-#Giveaway

Some days when I hear about the things going on in the world, it can make me think the whole world is going crazy. Senseless killings and violence are happening everywhere. Then out of those tragedies we see people band together, hundreds on line in the hot sun to give their own blood. People who lost everything in a flood are the ones leading the collection of new donations to help others. Those type of things tell me that through it all, there are good people and the world has not gone mad. When I truly think about it, there are many people doing good deeds every day but most days it goes unnoticed.

Mother Theresa said, “Never be so busy as not to think of others.” When we see others doing something good, it is nice to show them their sacrifice, good deeds and hard work is deeply appreciated. Macy’s has a great way to show someone that you have noticed and are inspired by what they are doing.

100 Good deeds collage

The  100 Good Deeds Bracelet not only inspires simple acts of kindness, but also transforms communities by empowering the vulnerable women around the world who craft the bracelets by hand. #100GoodDeeds is not just a great hashtag. It is a lifestyle, one that wants to change the world and do it in the most fashionable way.

100 Good Deeds Bracelet

Mary Fisher, the designer of the 100 Good Deeds Bracelets, and the face of the movement, believes that “a ‘good deed’ means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone, and only counts if the deed remains anonymous.” These bracelets are not only a fashion statement, but also an everyday reminder to its wearer to do good deeds.

These beautiful bracelets are handcrafted by vulnerable women in Haiti, South Africa, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda, India, Bali and the United States, many who are HIV+. This project gives the women a way to support their families through their earnings. The nylon cord is strung with 100 glass beads and a rubber ring that slides over each bead to count your good deeds. You wrap the bracelet around your wrist three times and then adjust the length sliding the knot along the cord and closer to the “1GD.” Each time you do a good deed, move the ring one bead closer to the “1GD” button.

The very act of purchasing a bracelet is a good deed? Simply buying a bracelet helps the many women across the world who make the jewelry support their families. Bracelets are available at Macys.com for $30 each, and come in a variety of colors. Each bracelet is handmade and will soften with wear.

100 Good Deeds Bracelet Purple

Life is short, life is precious and life is hard. We never know the battles or struggles anyone is facing. If we took some time to really look around us, to try to consciously think of ways we can make a positive difference in someone’s life, if would be amazing. I think of a video I saw the other day, just a regular guy who was having a really bad day. He was out running errands but could not stop thinking about what a bad day he was having and was immersed in his own pity party. As he was driving out of the parking lot he noticed a bald woman sitting in her car reading.

He said he cannot describe it, but a feeling came over him and he knew he had to park the car, go back in the store and bring her flowers. He did and he walked over to her car and told her that he saw her sitting there and while he does not know what she is going through, he wanted to give her these  flowers to put a smile on her face. He said as he was driving away he saw her just bawling in her car over what he did.

It is the simple acts of kindness, the kind that are not expected, the kind that are not made with the expectation of getting anything in return, the kind that are from the heart. When I see those things, I know there is hope in this world and that there are good souls that do care about others. I know I may not be able to stop violence in this world but if I could make an effort to make a positive change or difference in one person’s life each day, then I will go to bed grateful. Grateful that I had the opportunity to be a bright spot in the life of someone who needed to know someone cares.

When we honor our higher purpose of being a light, not for our good, but the greater good of others, we encourage, and hopefully create, a legacy of “do gooders” beyond our generation. There are no pats on the back, or PR stunts laden with feigned humility for notoriety. Your “good deeds” are truly the world’s best-kept secrets — hence, the premise and the meaning behind the 100 Good Deeds Bracelet.

100 good deeds image

I want to start by gifting one of these 100 Good Deeds Bracelets to someone who came into the world and was given a name that means “helper of mankind.” My daughter Alexandra, my oldest child of 5 and only daughter was always thinking of others. At 2 she would gladly help me juggle her and her newborn brother by carrying the diaper bag into the house so I could carry her brother without being overburdened.

#100GoodDeeds

As a teenager, she was always involved with blood drives at the school. In the 10th grade her essay was one of only 2 selected from her high school to attend HOBY State Leadership Seminar  designed to help high school sophomores to recognize their leadership talents and apply them to become effective, ethical leaders in their home, school, workplace and community. That seminar changed her life and showed her the importance of being a good leader and role model to others, to help in her community and to be an example to youth.

She has never stopped giving back. She was a big sister to a young girl living in a very dangerous and violence filled city. She volunteers her time for many organizations and causes. She runs and bikes for causes such as Doctors without Borders and to raise money for cancer research in honor of a good friend battling for her life. She is always there for a friend in need and she has grown into a woman who I truly admire, not just because she is my daughter but because she is a spectacular human being.

I cannot help but be proud of her academic and professional achievements but I am most proud of the way she lives her life every day. The way she has a smile for everyone and her exuberance for life has a way of reaching others who need it the most. So I will be gifting this bracelet to my daughter this weekend and I hope when she wears it, it will remind her of all she has done and all the lives there are yet to touch. I also hope that it will remind her that I love her and will always be her biggest supporter in all she does. I am blessed to have her for a daughter and I am looking forward to watching her change the world, one smile and one person at a time. I hope to do the same and would love you to join us.

See The Baskets That Represent Hope #Path2Peace

The other day I received a very special basket in them mail. It is a festive red and white and fits right into the current Christmas season. I can imagine it filled with some colorful Christmas ball ornaments or filled with Christmas cards. It would also be a nice centerpiece for a entry table or coffee table. You may see this in my home and think it is pretty, but you would probably be surprised to learn there is so much more to this basket.

red white basket 1

It is actually the Rwanda 10th Anniversary Medium Woven Star Basket. It is sold online and in Macy’s stores as part of the Rwanda Path to Peace program. These baskets, every single one of them represents a journey that they and the women who weave them have been on. The journey is one toward reconciliation.

red white basket macys

Macy’s has carried the Rwandan Path to Peace baskets in store and at Macys.com for 10 years. It’s an amazing commitment for an American retailer to make to women in another country. Back in 1994, the tiny nation, no bigger than Rhode Island saw a genocidal mass slaughter.  In three short months, nearly 1 million Rwandans were brutally murdered in a fury of ethic violence that is hard to even fathom.

red white basket 5

After the massacre, a few women came together and did what women in Rwanda do. They talked, they cried and they wove baskets. These were women of both sides of the ethnic divide, practicing the skills of weaving they all learn from their mothers and grandmothers. When Macy’s began carrying the baskets in 1995, it was the first example of a major American retailer committing to a Trade-not-Aid product line in a substantial way. Macy’s has kept that commitment alive, despite the fact that Rwanda has largely disappeared from the news.

red white basket 3

The baskets are available online and in stores and retail for $30-$50. Macy’s offers many 20% off coupons and the wonderful thing is, if you get this item for a discount it does not affect the price the weaver earns for the basket. I hope you take a look at the baskets HERE.

I have to admit I had never heard of this great commitment Macy’s has made to the women of this tiny nation. We are so blessed to live in America and it can be hard to imagine the plight of these women and what they lived through. I am sure they have very deep scars but what Macy’s has done and continues to do gives them a sense of hope, hope for the future, hope to women in Africa.

If you are looking for a gift that carries with it great meaning, these baskets would definitely fit that to a T. It truly is a gift that represents the wish and hope for Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Women. Do you realize that every basket that is sold will not only provide hope but economic sustenance for a woman in Rwanda. She will use the money to pay her children’s school fees, feed her children and perhaps buy a goat that will help improve her life. Can you imagine the kind of impact the purchase of a red and white basket can make?

red white basket 4

Below I hope you will take a few minutes to view a video that shows the history of the Rwanda program.

 

Rwanda Path to Peace is now the longest-lasting program of its kind, impacting thousands of women throughout Rwanda, their families and communities. With their earnings, women can now send their children to school. They can buy everything from soap to land, malaria nets to health insurance. The income they earn from their handiwork has helped rebuild their communities. One of the first things a weaver does when she sells her first basket is buy soap. The next thing she does is buy shoes and pay school fees. Many weavers today have seen huge improvements in their lives. Below are powerful videos featuring such stories, click on the woman’s name to see a video about her life now.

Every Red and White Basket is the result of a weaving process that has been practiced for centuries in Rwanda. Each basket design is unique and they are painstakingly crafted from sisal and grass by women who learned to weave from their mothers, grandmothers and aunts. If you would like to see how the baskets are made in a special video, click HERE!

Ten years ago many of the thousands of children were malnourished and sick but through this program that has provided food, medicine and education they are now thriving young adults. Many of these young adults have completed school and are entering university.  Macy’s commitment to the women of Rwanda means they can have hope for a future.

You will find the Rwanda 10th Anniversary Medium Star Basket on Mommy Ramblings’ 2015 Holiday Gift Guide.

Measles Cases Rising And Junk Science Is To Blame?

vaccine 1

So unless you’ve been under a rock, you’re well aware of the measles outbreak that started in Disneyland and has now spread to 121 cases across the U.S.  Doctors, the American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, and more are urging parents to get their children vaccinated.

This has created a storm of opposition from the anti-vax parents.  Seemingly unconcerned with what they deem a mild or non-serious illness, they are defending their rights not to vaccinate.  They feel they are protecting their children from autism which they believe is caused by the MMR vaccine.  The study that perpetuated the myth was retracted and deemed junk science. Regardless, they remain steadfast in their decision not to vaccinate despite increased concern of a measles epidemic.

mickey_mouse_measles

I thought I would research the answers to questions that people have been asking regarding all this debate.   So let’s look at what perpetuated the notion that the MMR vaccine was causing Autism?

We need to go back to 1988, when a doctor in the UK by the name of Andrew Wakefield published a study with just 12 child subjects. The children were brought to his clinic suffering from diarrhea and/or abdominal pain.  These children were said to have a history of normal development but subsequently lost certain skills.  When Wakefield was gathering their medical history, he asked the parents when their child received the MMR vaccine and how that correlated to their loss of skills. Based upon this data, Wakefield believed there was a connection between the vaccine and autism.

However, there was no objective scientific data to back his theory up, it was based on the recall of the parents. Given that some of the vaccines were administered as much as 9 years prior, there is reasonable concern about the accuracy.   What is even more troubling, is that Wakefield, claimed that the bowel dysfunction was caused by the MMR vaccine which then caused the autism, even though 4 of the 12 children in the study experienced behavioral disorders prior to the bowel issues.  This fact alone refutes Wakefield’s theory.

There was also no control group, a critical omission casting more doubt on his findings.  A good standard of science, is that the findings can be replicated in a separate setting.  After sharing specimens with colleagues at the Royal Free Hospital in London, Wakefield’s findings could not be replicated.  His study was later retracted from the Lancet where it was originally published.

retracted-lancet-218x300

The doctor’s troubles did not end there, a paper in the Journal of Molecular Pathology written by Wakefield in 2002, was found to be critically flawed.  A recent study in the British Medical Journal found no rise in incidence of autism in children who received MMR as compared to those who did not. The authors also showed that in autistic children (both ASD and classical) the age at which a child received MMR did not affect the age at which the diagnosis of autism was made.

So why then do some parents so vehemently claim that the MMR vaccine caused their child’s Autism?  Autism is most often first identified in toddlers aged 18-30 months.  Since the MMR vaccine is administered just before this peak age, it causes some parents to link the two together.  There is no medical evidence to support this.  Extensive reports from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Institute of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conclude that there is no proven association between MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Wakefield has since lost his license to practice medicine.

So what does all this mean to the anti-vaxers? Are they changing their stance?  No, they are not and they are just as steadfast in their decision not to vaccinate.  Many claim that the diseases that the vaccines have eradicated are not that serious. Really?  This assumption is based on what?  Their opinion?  The AAP does not take the stance that the diseases are harmless.  In fact they warn parents of the risks and urge them to vaccinate their children.  Some pediatricians are refusing to treat the children of parents who refuse to vaccinate.  They do not want their patients to be exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases in the waiting rooms.  There are also many calling for a ruling that unvaccinated children not be allowed to attend public school.

I wonder what these parents are going to think in 15 or so years from now when their daughters and sons are dating and moving toward marriage.  Have they thought that their sons could contract mumps and be sterile?  Or that their grandchild may suffer debilitating birth defects or be stillborn because their mother contracted measles during pregnancy?  Have they thought that far ahead, or do they plan to rush out and try to get their child exposed to these illnesses so they have natural immunity?

Will their pregnant daughters live in constant fear of contracting Rubella?  Will they suffer the grief of losing their baby or caring for a child with severe birth defects stemming from a medical decision based on flawed science?  Will their daughters rush out and get immunized to protect themselves after seeing the results of primary Rubella infection in unvaccinated pregnant friends and family members? Who knows what they future will hold for them.  It’s scary to think about.

While many are still touting unfounded fears linking vaccines to autism, Autism Speaks chief science officer Rob Ring, has released a statement saying vaccinations cannot cause the disorder — and telling parents to vaccinate their children.

So why do they say the measles is a harmless childhood illness?  The majority in the anti-vax movement were born after the vaccine, so they have no first-hand experience.  Prior to the vaccine, measles killed 500 people a year in the U.S.  Measles infection caused 48,000 people a year to be hospitalized and 4,000 experienced encephalitis, a dangerous condition that causes the brain to swell and caused 400-500 deaths.

Measles is one of the most infectious diseases because it’s airborne and lingers in the air causing it to spread quickly.  People can spread the disease for four days before they develop any symptoms. Highly contagious, 90% of people not immune will contract the virus if exposed.

So how do you feel on the issue?  Let me know, but please keep your comments respectful.

go vaccinate your children

Print Money Saving Coupons & Help Believe In Heroes® Raise Funds To Support Wounded Warriors!!! #BelieveinHeroes

 

 

wounded-warriors-banner

My father served our country proudly in the Navy during World War II, my oldest brother was a Captain in the Army during the Vietnam War and my other 2 brothers served in the United States Coast Guard.  My uncles, cousins and other family members also served our country proudly in different branches of the military.  I have nephews who are active members of the military and have already served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

My friend’s husband  served several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan but has suffered terribly with PTSD.  They have 2 young children and the trials they face due to his severe PTSD are so stressful. Numerous hospitalizations, the need for help in the home to assist when her husband has an episode prevent them from doing many things families take for granted.  Seeing what she has to go through has really shown me the reality of PTSD and how it affects our veterans.  It is one of the reasons why I was happy to participate in the Believe in Heroes® Campaign.

Wounded-Warrior-Image

 

Believe in Heroes® was established in 2010 to bring grocery retailers, trusted brands, and shoppers together to raise funds for WWP, a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.  Most veterans face challenges as they transition back into civilian life, and today’s wounded veterans are meeting extraordinary obstacles including, the physical injuries as well as invisible ones, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It’s time for EVERYONE to take part in ensuring our injured service members are well taken care of.  The campaign has generated $16 million for WWP to date and has helped enable the expansion of its critical veteran programs that now directly serve more than 40,000 injured service members.

Want to help?  You can easily help Believe in Heroes® raise funds to help our Wounded Warriors while doing something you do anyway, grocery shopping.  You can download over $25 in coupon savings HERE.  Coupons are available through 11/30/14 or while supplies last.  For more information on the campaign and how/where to shop click HERE

You can also show your support by purchasing Believe in Heroes® merchandise in stores or online HERE .
