Tha ALS Ice Bucket challenge has gone viral!! To date this challenge has raised more than 9.5 MILLION dollars for the ALS Association and resulted in about 185,000 NEW donors. This is huge for any non-profit but one of the great benefits is the fight to cure ALS has been brought into the national spotlight in a real way.
"We have never seen anything like this in the history of the disease,” said Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the level of compassion, generosity and sense of humor that people are exhibiting as they take part in this impactful viral initiative."
Jessica was delighted when her friend Rebecca Ortego (remember her Opperation Teddy Bear) challenged her and this was the result...
Jessica is calling out out Nicholas Lowinger, founder of Gotta Have Sole (since Nicholas has done the challenge Lori will be doing it on behalf of Gotta Have Sole), Sarah Cronk, founder of The Sparkle Effect, and Bob Carscadden along with all the other instructors at Cymer (since he doesn't have a class this week). She is gleefully sending a check to support ALS research!!

Thanks so much to Jerome's Furniture for donating beds to our local fire fighters none of this would be possible with out you. A good night's sleep is so important especially for the men and women who protect us. A big thank you to Amy Linden who got a request from an 11 year old and took it seriously and to Steven Luke from NBC San Diego who took time to cover this and was so patient with Jessica who is still recovering from her surgery last week.
Lastly a BIG thank you to all the fire fighters not only at Station 33 but all across the country who work tirelessly to protect us.

Today the We Care Bears Project had the great pleasure of holding a mini Bear Bagging Event with the help of the great kids at Camp Helping Hands in Thousand Oaks, CA.
The goal behind Camp Helping Hands is to get young children involved in their community through service-learning. Camp Helping Hands leaves participants with a positive and lasting impression by having them work together to help make a difference in their community where it is needed most.
Thanks to the kids all the helping hands today we were able to create 25 bags (195 stuffed animals) of stuffed animals for the Venture County Fire Department.
A special THANK YOU to firefighters from Venture Fire who took time out of their busy day to pick up the stuffed animals and explain why they make such a difference when a child is scared or injured.
