Posted April 21, 2014 by Tamara Letter

Looking for a few ideas on how to do Random Acts of Kindness on Earth Day, April 22? Check out the list below! GROCERY SHOPPING: Instead of using plastic grocery bags, bring your own bags to the store. Then continue your random acts of kindness by taking your own groceries to your car and returning the cart all the way back to the store.

Less gas...

If The Shoe Fits

Posted April 21, 2014 by Tamara Letter

Today as we cheer on the runners of the Boston Marathon, an elite race stretching back to 1897, it is a period of reflection for many Americans. This time last year, as spectators gathered around the finish line, the excitement and jubilation of that day was marred by the tragic bombings that took the lives of three people and injured more than 260. Our country watched with mixed emotions as we shared in the horror of that moment, standing transfixed before televisions and cell phones, waiting. Watching. Wondering. A year has passed and with it came stories of heroism, kindness, and love. We waited for news of capture. Watched as complete strangers jumped in to help those around them. Wondered if we would ever be the same again. Dedicated runners started their training programs once...

A Handful of Kindness Could Make a Difference in Our Planet

Posted April 21, 2014 by Lovella Bargas

The Earth faithfully served humanity with all its might for many years. History upon history takes place, generations to generations passed but the Earth is standing still, enduring the course of time. It’s Earth Day once again and it’s nice to give you a little throwback about it. The summit of hippie happenings took place by famous people such as the last of the Beatles Album in 1970, an environmental movement was initiated. April 22 marked its first innovation moving towards to what it is today, which era has brought turmoil to society. A rage of war to Vietnam took place, progressing industries gulped out smoke and the word environment is just being a word in a dictionary and people start to spend their...

5 Ways To Be Responsibly Kind To Animals

Posted April 18, 2014 by Chipper the Imperfect Dog

I grew up as a stray puppy on the streets of New Mexico. I was hungry, cold, and afraid. Some people captured me and took me to a shelter. Those were sad times because I didn't belong to anyone. I was one of the few lucky ones because I was saved by a rescue group before Kill Day, and eventually I found a family to love me. It makes me very sad that thousands of perfectly good animals are euthanized in shelters every day. When my mom volunteered at a shelter, a man surrendered his loyal family dog because he was "too old." A woman left her dog there because he "didn't match the furniture." Each of us has a responsibility to do our part to make the world a kinder place for animals. Here are five ways you can help: 1. Spay or neuter your pet. One of the main...

Spread the Word: Be Kind to Your Roadways

Posted April 12, 2014 by Barbara Bullington

Earth Day (http://www.earthday.org/) is April 22 but the Earth needs care and love everyday. One simple but extremely effective way to make a change is to pledge not to throw garbage out of your vehicle and to tell others to take the same pledge. As you look around while driving down any road or highway, do you see fast food wrappers and empty plastic bags strewn to the left and broken CDs, and glass or plastic bottles to the right as far as the eye can see? I guess it’s easy to throw a tissue or straw out of the window and quickly forget all about it. But, when everyone treats the roadways like a garbage dump, a trail of debris remains long after the drivers have returned home and parked their cars in the garage. If that garbage in your car is bothering you, find a business with an accessible...
