April 27th is National Babe Ruth Day

On this day in 1947, in Yankee Stadium, New York, more than 58,000 fans gathered together to honor one of the greatest players of baseball history—Babe Ruth—The Great Bambino. On this day, April 27th, we pay tribute to the man in celebration of Babe Ruth Day.

Simply step up to the plate and you will hit a home run!

We Love Our Pets

We love our pets and we love that the American Red Cross loves pets too! According to the American Red Cross, April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month.

While pondering what special thing I might do to show my love for my pets during the month of April, I also thought of my friend Renda who is one of many Heroes for the American Red Cross.

As an ARC Hero, Renda committed to personally raise $1,000 for the Red Cross in 121 days! You can monitor her success by friending Renda on Facebook.

FYI: as of this posting Renda has raised $611.00 towards her goal!
(With 87 days to go!)

Donate $5 in your pet's name!
Together we can make a difference!
Donate Now

My canine pals - Tidbit, Scratch, and NewBe - just made a $5 donation to the cause, bringing Renda's goal to $616.00.

HINT: When filling out the donation form for "Name" for "First" I typed Tidbit, for "Middle" I typed Scratch, and for "Last" I typed in NewBe. That's how I got their names on Renda's List of Heroes.

Will you make a donation to the cause? Let me know your pet's name when you do!

BoWoW of Thanks to you!

Eleventh Commandment for the Children

National Child Abuse Prevention Month begins today (in the USA). Throughout the month of April we can all take action that will further child abuse awareness ... for the children.

Collin Raye sings it best in this music video...

Along with blogging for the children, I will be sharing many abuse awareness resource and informational links on my Arise Against Abuse page on Facebook. Feel free to like the page and share your links for child abuse prevention. (Keep in mind, I do reserve the right to delete any links I deem unworthy of being shared on my page.)

Take action now ... for the children.
