Two things I think you should know about

I have a couple of important things to quickly mention today.

It was just a couple of weeks ago that I wrote about the global food crisis where the poorest of the poor are being hit the hardest and people in Haiti are resorting to eating dirt “cookies” made from shortening, salt and dirt. I also interviewed my friend who is in the process of adopting two young children from Foyer de Sion Orphanage in Haiti.

Another friend of ours is trying to raise awareness about the food situation and do something to help out the children in the orphanage by holding a contest. It doesn’t take much to make a difference. A mere $7 donation would feed 63 children at the orphanage for two days; $100 would buy nearly 200 pounds of staple foods like rice, sugar, flour, and powdered milk. Head on over to her blog, read how you can help and also get your name entered into a drawing with a chance to win a $25 Target gift card. It’s a win-win.

Have you ever slept next to your child? Do you currently co-sleep or bedshare with your child(ren)? Please take this short survey and help the Fennells (a family who has been involved in promoting safe co-sleeping for many years) meet their goal of getting 50,000 co-sleeping families to complete the survey before the end of the year.

  1. Took the survey 🙂 We co-slept with our first and a little with our 2nd. He wouldn’t let R sleep with us but Alex comes in our bed anywhere from 10 on and is there until the morning. I LOVE waking up to his little smile 🙂

  2. Took the survey. We’re only sometimes co-sleepers, but I still thought I’d share!

    The hunger issue is also affecting local families in US communities, though not to the degree it has hit internationally. Because of my nonprofit day job, I’ve heard that many food banks have had dramatic growth in people accessing their services at the same time donations have decreased.
