"Don't Be Hungry" Box

Our "Don't Be Hungry" box is a wonderful way for children to take part in sharing with others with those who are hungry and homeless.

"... and a little child shall lead the way."

One day, the kids and I were running errands when we came to a stop light where a hungry and homeless man was standing and asking for change. Normally, I'd grab some coins to give, but didn't have anything in our usual spot. I started fumbling around to find more change when he decided to move on down the line of cars. Before I could catch…

The Beautiful World of Egg Donors

Having the eggs to donate is a wonderful gift. Some people dismiss it as nothing. They think that their eggs are there naturally so there is really nothing to celebrate about it. But if I tell you that this egg that you dismiss as nothing can give birth to a new life and bring joy to another family, you’ll never see eggs in the same way you did before.



This is the reason why many…

Rainbow Looms for a Cause

If you haven't heard of Rainbow Looms by now, well, then, you've probably been living under a rock.  They are literally EVERYWHERE, and chances are, you may even be wearing one of the bracelets right now.  My daughter and all her friends have been making them like it's their job, and my car could practically autopilot itself to Michael's to buy the replacement bands.…

The Thermos

http://www.andbabymakes2.co.il

For those of you unfamiliar with IVF in Israel, here is a brief description of the process. The procedure is done in private hospitals. The frozen sperm is kept in public hospitals. So the obvious question is how does it get from one hospital to the other? Well, this is Israel; and while I hear lots of olim (new immigrants) complain about the bureaucracy, having lived in the United States as…

Guest blog by my other half

I asked my husband to write a guest blog about his transplant experience and I thought that I would share. He did such a great job and I am so proud. I want as many people to read it and see how organ donation saves lives.

    Last week, I asked Marty to write a post about his transplant experience and this is what he wrote;

 

 

     So, there I am one day minding my own business, (Famous last words, Right?) sitting on the couch…

What happened at the doctor today?

The doctor asked my husband a simple question and he got a answer that he didn't expect. It was a truly hilarious moment with a underlying sadness

The Girl Store - Buy Her Life Back

“Experience the sensation of buying a girl… her life back”. That’s the baiting, provocative but so very clever intro of the Girl Store website, effective at demonstrating how a girl child in India can be “bought back” from the perils of being sold for marriage, sex slavery, labor slavery or terrorism.

The Girl Store, run by…

Please Vote For a Worthy Children's Charity To Win $1 Million

Please Vote For a Worthy Children's Charity To Win $1 Million



I get very emotional when I see, read about, or watch on TV a child in pain. A family struggling to accept the reality of an impaired or afflicted child in their lives. An empty crib, clothes that are never worn, a mother who has lost the light of her life.



Ah, there is so much misery in the world. Every time there is a natural disaster I have the urge to adopt an orphaned child whose parents were taken in the… Continue

Last week every major newspaper reported that New York has become the first state to allow taxpayer-funded researchers to pay women for giving their eggs for embryonic stem cell research. In the recent governmental shift of supporting embryonic stem cell research this is a development welcomed by scientistists world-wide. However, it has received harsh criticism by… Continue

Getting bossy for a good cause

I'm not really the kind of blogger (or person) who tells other adults what to do (the kids are fair game, obviously), but I think I'm becoming an unofficial ambassador for the Red Cross.



If you're eligible to donate blood, you can make an appointment online right this second on the Red Cross website. Setting up an account, finding a blood drive/donation center, and making an appointment takes less… Continue

Fun Fact Friday - Giving Blood Turned Me Into A Cheap Date!

Today's fun fact is that I gave blood for the first time ever yesterday. My coworker, and friend, Amy came to my office, grabbed my hand and said "Come on, you're going with me and giving blood!"



Me: Um I am? Wait, I uh *tries to think of an excuse*, uuuh, I don't really like needles you know.

Amy: *eye roll*. Come ON! Your covered in tattoos and you are going to tell me you don't like needles???

Has Blogging Become One Big Chore?

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”

We have all been there, right? Or, is it just me?
