Reece’s Rainbow

I only learned about this Reece’s Rainbow recently from a fellow blogger, Grissell. I took a look at the website and gladly posted the button on my blog. I found myself drawn to go back to the site. I felt as though I wanted to do more. I looked at the website and found myself in tears. All these poor children who need loving families and medical care.

Where I’m not in a position to be able to adopt, I wanted to be able to help someone who is in a position to do so. Reece’s rainbow website takes donations that are used to help adoptive families with the cost of international adoption. All of the children are special needs.

I made a small donation myself. Reading through the information the website is saying it can cost $25,000 for a family to adopt a special needs child internationally. If these children are not adopted at an early age they are sent away to institutions for the rest of their lives.

It breaks my heart to see the pictures of their sweet smiling faces. As a healthcare worker, I think, “this child could be helped with a few surgeries, or “in the right environment this child could do fairly well.”

Please consider making a donation to this wonderful organization. You’re donation could extend the life, quality and happiness of a child’s future and help place them in a loving home.

Get Green Get Free Stuff…a win, win situation

I love the site: www.freestufftimes.com I find a lot of great free stuff on that site. This time I found out about “Recycle Bank”. www.recyclebank.com
Registration for Recycle Banks is free. The idea is you earn points by doing things like: curbside recycling, sending in old cell phones and ipods, and joining the Kashless community which is also free: http://kashless.org/signup Where you can post your used items for free that someone else may want. As opposed to throwing them away. You can also get free stuff.

Trade in your points for things like gift cards, cleaning products, discounts, and more. I just ordered a free Seventh Generation all purpose cleaner and a free Seventh Generation natural dish liquid. You get 100 points just for making a free account on “Recycle Bank”. I used that to get a free 6 month Pogo membership.

So you do green things and get points to get free stuff. Not bad huh?
Seventh Generation, Free & Clear All-Purpose Cleaner 32 Ounces
Seventh Generation Dish Liquid, Free & Clear, 25-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 6)

***UPDATE Received my coupons today for free jar of Chick Chick Baby Food, 1 free seventh generation all purpose cleaner, and 1 fre Seventh Generation Dish Liquid

So excited to have got an email from Recycle bank to give me more info to share with you about recycle bank. I received this email from Melody Serafino with recyclebank and have provided most of the email for you all to read to learn more about recyclebank.

As you know, RecycleBank motivates people to become greener citizens and smarter consumers by rewarding them for recycling at home or taking greener actions. With a robust rewards program, there is an incentive for everyone for doing their part to make the world a bit greener.

In addition to our curbside recycling program – now servicing 25 states and growing– anyone, anywhere in the U.S. can sign up for a RecycleBank account and earn RecycleBank points for all kinds of greener actions like: reusing products through a free exchange on Kashless, recycling your MP3 players, laptops and cell phones, and joining eBay’s Green Team Community and working to use what already exists in the world today.

Here are some examples of how members can earn points:

· Getting a new sofa? Rather than putting the old one to the curb on trash day, post it on Kashless.org. Need a sofa, check the listings by state, city, mileage radius… and pick one up for free. RecycleBank will reward you for either side, because you saved landfill space. And, there are dozens of categories to share in this free exchange of goods!

· Today you can send in your old cell phones, laptops, and iPod/MP3 players and earn RecycleBank points for keeping them out of the landfill. Starting in April, we’ll be accepting 20 different types of electronic waste! Visit www.RecycleBank.com/earn/electronics to see how to download a postage paid label for e-waste.

· Ever realize how green eBay is? It’s the ultimate source of that second of the three “R”s in the familiar environmental saying: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Join the eBay Green Team community through RecycleBank and you’ll earn 50 more points! Soon, you’ll even be able to use use your points for eBay transactions and make reuse even easier and more appealing!

What good buy did i get today?!

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post I love going to the after the season/ after holiday sales. This is what I got today:

Gymboree: Spent only $23 dollars and got a pair of navy blue corduroy overalls size 18-24 mo, A long sleeve 1 piece romper size 12-18 mo, a pair of camo shorts size 12-18 mo, and since the prices were so good I picked up a pair of sparkly seashell sunglass, a cute sun bonnet with strawberries and other fruits on it and matching sock for my neice (in bigger sizes so it fits her for the summer). Yes all of that for $23. My baby is in 6-9 mo clothes now but was shopping to supply for the near future.

Bath and Body Works: Love bath and body works semi-annual sale after christmas. Got me 2 of the lotion antibac hand soaps, a new loofah, and 2 room sprays for $15. If you have never tried the bath and body works room sprays go stock up on them now. They are normally $5 a peice but they have them 50% off. The bottles look small but they last a long time. It sprays a controled spritz and the one spritz is enough to scent the whole room. It’s great to keep in the bathroom. I got a stress relieving Eucalyptus and spearmint which smells amazing and a Fireside which also has a nice winter scent to it.
