Randomonium 1.15.10

Random and Pandemonium.

What life is really all about.
1) Recyle your old greeting cards. St Jude's Ranch for Children.
They are accepting used, all-occasion cards from:
November 15, 2009 - February 28, 2010

You can mail your donations to:
St. Jude's Ranch for Children
Recycled Card Program
100 St. Jude's Street - Boulder City, NV 89005
877-977-SJRC (7572)

The children participate in making the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by the children and volunteers. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive "green" holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of "going green".
2) Hop on over to my friend Sally's blog. She is an adoptive mother and author. Her book was recently released. "What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: A Paren'ts Perspective." She is a director for Parenthood for Me as well. She will delivering the keynote address at our Family Building Dinner in April.
Click here to visit her blog. She asks what you would want a keynote speaker to say at an event like ours.
3) Thank you to Kym at I'm A Smart One for holding a fundraiser for PFM to celebrate her blogoversary. Check out her blog. Her goal is to get a table sponsorship at our Family Building Dinner from the ALI community. What a lovely idea to have everyone there in spirit.
4) Become a fan of Parenthood for Me.org on Facebook. Please suggest to your friends.

Great idea! I completely forgot about the SJ greeting card project. I will using this as I organize the office and go through the past couple years of x-mas cards.
