If you are reading Life in a House of Testosterone via our RSS Feed – I thank you! I would also ask; however, that you take a moment to stop by our web site and check us out “in person” if you will. I love the convenience of subscribing to RSS Feeds (I myself am subscribed to hundreds – literally!) and being able to just quickly skim through the posts to find the things that interest me…but I also like to take a visit to the web site as well now and again to see what is new and what has changed.
There are just a few things on the blog that I would like to bring your attention to – and seeing them means having to view the blog online in your browser. I know – I’m horrible LOL!
Causes That I Am Passionate About
Causes is a wonderful site that is dedicated to spreading the word about social issues that are near and dear to your heart. Boasting 170 million members, those members have raised $40 million dollars for 27,000 nonprofits to date and have had 400,000 birthday wishes dedicated to Causes. I am a proud member of those 170 million members.
I am currently a member of and support various different causes that I would like to share with you and ask for your support in.
My featured cause is Stop Bullying. I was bullied as a child in school. I remember the tears, the pain, the shame that came with the name-calling and the belittling. Being called Kibble ‘n Bits (yes, after the dog food – meaning that I was the dog) in high school no less is just beyond cruel. I still to this day remember the girl who started calling me that and the mortification I felt when she yelled it down the hallway in high school and everyone laughed at me. I just wanted to crawl inside of myself and die. With all of the problems that I was having at home, school was my only refuge, my only place to come to for any sense of normalcy and stability, and with just those three little words she ripped all of that away from me in an instant.
I was able to survive it and suffer through it. Some children are not so lucky. Depending on other issues going on in their lives that these bullies have no knowledge of, sometimes the bullying is the last straw. There are too many of our young children who are taking their own lives because of the senseless bullying in school and in their neighborhoods, not to mention the growing epidemic of cyber-bullying. It needs to stop, and it needs to stop NOW.
In honor of my children, for my birthday this year (February 11th) I am asking that friends and family members donate to the Stop Bullying cause on Causes. I would like to raise $1,000 for this worthy cause by my birthday – and donations are accepted starting as low as $10.00.
In addition, I am a member of the Care2 family and you will find tweets and Facebook posts and Google+ posts from me about causes and concerns from the site that I am passionate about.
