Welcome to "Celebrate Kids",  Ingrid A.! I'm glad you accepted my invite! I'm always adding new subject matter so feel free to jump right in. You can discuss whatever topic you'd like or add resources, news articles, blogs, whatever you think fellow child advocates can use to improve the lives of a child.

I'd like for this group to encourage everyday average American and world citizens to take action to improve the life of a child.

Thanks, again, for joining!

Also, be sure to check out the articles I've noted lately. There are some very important Care2 News needing circulating that various advocates have posted.

As always, thank you so much for everything you are doing to take a few minutes to make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth.

Have a great remainder of you week!

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Hello Fellow Child Advocates!

I hope you all are doing well. (For those of you who don't know... I say that in a southern drawl.)

I've been working on the Children's Hope and Voice website. I'm am currently putting together a "Summer"page for the site. It will be updated a bit. I will separate the '4th of July' theme onto another page but for now I've found some really neat activities and recipes to do with your kids and / or grandkids this summer.

Also, I've been working on launching our ScoopIt pages, our on-line magazine. I'd love for you to take a look. These are the topics:

Education & Homeschooling

Juvenile Justice Advocacy

Celebrate Kids / Child Welfare Advocacy

Super Stars / True Heroes of Youth

Missing and Exploited Kids

You may notice the ScoopIt stories automatically pan in the various topics
on our homepage. I may choose to share some of your news stories you've uploaded to you Care2 news on the homepage!

I hope you find something of interest on the website or on-line magazine. If you have anything to share, please feel free to contact me.

Have a superb week!

In Christian Love,

Good Morning Everyone!

I just wanted to let you know I'll be having an outpatient surgery tomorrow, Monday, June 18th. I am expecting to out of commission for about a week but am hoping to be able to get on-line during my recovery.

I've been working on an Independence Day webpage with activities, crafts and recipes. Come check it out!

(To get there from the homepage, scroll down on the left side of the homepage and look for "Seasonal / Education" then click on '4th of July')

Also, if you haven't already, please come over and check out our new on-line magazine at Here's the link:

Thanks so much for all your continued efforts and support.

Take care!
