Stonyfield Yogurt Helping Prepare Future Leaders

Hey neighbors!

Remember earlier this year when we wrote about Stonyfield becoming a sponsor of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SAFE program?  If not you can read about it HERE.  Well, now Stonyfield is pairing up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America to go even further.  They want to take children from the Boys and Girls Clubs to one of the AZA accredited Zoos and Aquariums.  For the duration of the campaign, Stonyfield will match each donation, up to $125,000.  This will double each qualifying donation.  This campaign began September 25th and will run to November 6th.

Boys and Girls Clubs of America are committed to changing lives.  In a study it showed that 2x as many members in 8th, 10th and 12th grade volunteer at least monthly when compared to peers who are not members.  Stonyfield wants to give kids like these the opportunity to experience first hand the wildlife and to encourage them to help protect these animals.  They will see these animals in their natural habitat, rather than on a tablet or tv screen, and learn about how to help prevent the destruction of their ecosystems.  By doing this, Stonyfield is helping prepare #FutureLeaders.

You can help by visiting HERE, where you can donate and learn more.  Thank you for dropping by today for a visit!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
