Butterflies, Blue Eggs, and Chocolate, Yum! – Weekly Highlights

Happy April everyone! This week kicks off the month that is home to Easter, National Garden Month and Earth Day ó three great reasons to celebrate.

We are particularly excited about Earth Day here at Care2, so we’re starting the celebration early and extending our coverage throughout the month of April. In addition to tons of great tips and ideas, we’ll also be giving you opportunities to earn extra butterfly credits, win earth-friendly products and have your Earth Day haiku featured on our home page. So get ready!

For those of you who celebrate Easter, we have some fun things to check out before Sunday:
Homemade Easter Egg Dyes
DIY Egg Tree for Spring Celebrations
Cute Bunny Photos!
Free Care2 E-Cards!

We’ve also had some really great posts this week on happiness-boosters that aren’t so great in the long run, the benefits of being an early bird, why monarch butterflies are in danger, and one more reason to eat chocolate (as if we needed an excuse).
