A couple of weeks ago we learned about another San Diego organization holding a Make A Difference Day Event. They are collecting backpacks and pajamas for kids at Polinsky Center (an emergency shelter for children removed from their families) and Jessica KNEW she wanted to help. She contacted the lovely Miss Weir and learned about The Ambassadors at Greater Life Baptist Church.
Jessica’s program and the Ambassadors’ program are the perfect collaborative campaign for kids in unbearable situations so today we were honored to take our first pre Make A Difference Day donation to the Ambassadors’ of 70 stuffed animals to include with their backpacks. If you’re organization would like to help the Ambassadors’ they are collecting personal supplies (kids toothpaste, toothbrushes, brushes, combs, etc), as well as pajamas and backpacks, use the contact form on our website and we’ll put you in touch.

Jessica had the pleasure of speaking to the Bucketfillers and Daisies at Turtleback Elementary School yesterday.
What a group of fantastic kids with thoughtful and smart questions. They have set a goal of 200 stuffed animals for their bear drive and already had at least 50. We SURE they will not only reach but exceed their goal. Thank you so much Ms. Myles for thinking of us as a project for your amazing group of kids.

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!!
