Search With Heart

GSearch

Goodsearch is a great way to raise money for your favorite cause with simple everyday actions like web search, dining, shopping, playing games and more.  Since 2006, users have donated millions of dollars to numerous charitable organizations through a unique platform.  So many people are joining this movement to truly make a difference.

The cause that I support is The Mural Arts Program of Phila.  They give you a personal page to share with friends and family, so they can take part or start their own page.

Take some to click my goodsearch link, take a look around, search a few terms to help my cause or start one of your own.

Spread the Red

The American Heart Association and Macy’s have teamed up to support the the fight against heart disease.  This February marks the 10th year of the “Go Red for Women“movement.  Despite a lot of progress, there’s still a long way to go because heart disease continues to be the No. 1 killer of women, taking more lives than all kinds of cancer combined.  I’m living with a survivor of three major heart attacks who decided to get educated by living healthier, learning the risks and sharing her story to help her children…thanks Mom.

This year we celebrated the movement with a day of shopping at Macy’s in red, which helped to raise awareness of heart disease.  The strength of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends, fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. It’s time to shout louder, stand stronger and demand change.  We will continue to spread the red.

26 Acts of Kindness

Leaving a lottery ticket on someones windshield, paying for someone’s groceries, deliver pizza to the fire station, were just a few of thousands of small acts, people are sharing all over the world.  There has been an unexpected movement of good will from a social media post of one simple idea that said, “Imagine if we all committed one act of kindness for each precious life lost in Newtown Connecticut.  This effort, “26 Acts of Kindness” on Facebook and Twitter has gone viral.  We anxiously joined and completed all 26 acts within three days.  The note card above was included with each gift.

My favorite was #21, when we paid for the groceries of a person in front of us… As I was passing the woman the note card, the toddler in the cart said, “thank you”, and gave me a wave.  There was not a dry eyeball in that line, that moment was priceless.

As more and more people join the Kindness Revolution, the downward spiral of society fueled by selfishness, materialism and greed will be slowed, and even reversed. As this happens it will promote an enhanced feeling of ‘belonging’ in the community, and give a greater sense of meaning and purpose.  Acts of kindness should be a way of life.
