A GREAT and very educational Chamber After Hours was held this past Wednesday at Ripley Crossing in Milan! Thank you Big Brothers/Big Sisters, The YES Home and Ripley Crossing for having us!
Precisely why mentoring has ALWAYS been a form of service near & dear to me. ACTIVE member of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta.
I still think like a lawyer sometimes, so when Nerium International asked us to participate in their ongoing efforts to raise money for Big Brother, Big Sisters through Lemonade for Littles, I temporarily put my lawyer hat on. Lemonade Stands in most major cities are regulated by municipal Health Departments. I remembered reading something about that in the past, so Michael D. Carter and I checked with the City of Albuquerque and they asked us a few simple questions, gave us some simple instructions and almost immediately emailed us a Lemonade Stand Food Permit. It's worth the extra step wherever you are to check and get the little piece of paper (dial 311 in most cities for more information). This program is about the kids and making sure this little step is taken care of might avoid some possible disappointment ahead of time.
This weekend is Kamp Keystone with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Elkhart County. Watch this video and you will see why we feel this is one of the most memorable camping weekends we will enjoy. Learn more at:
Dear Sto:lo people and other indigenous guests here in the Fraser Valley: Sto:lo Nation has piloted a new volunteer mentorship program similar to "Big Brothers / Big Sisters". So far we have managed to recruit 3 wonderful ladies for young female participants, and although this is fantastic, it is our young men that are more vulnerable to venturing off the beaten track towards a successful adulthood. This "work for the spirit" can serve as required practicum hours if you are in a youth centres program, also, ancestors will send you charmic kudos :) In box me if you wish to know more. It's for youth between 8-16. Kwas H'oy!
Just a reminder that tonight we'll be hosting a charity event for the Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Frederick County.

Come on out and show support for this very worthwhile event!

For my last post of the day: For now, I have survived the initial barrage of prying questions regarding my past that I was more than happy to answer. Today, I have my initial interview for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program to see if I pass the litmus test, and can help some young buck-like myself- without any male role models, figure it out and make a go of things. I like the idea of passing along Music, art, books and a gazillion life lessons learned the hard way that have sprouted into simple wisdom and common sense, that someone might be better equipped to survive in this world. Lesson Young Jeezy isn't music. Lesson hockey is one of the only things worth paying attention to, so pay attention. Lesson fracking is probably a bad thing; if ever given a chance to vote, vote against it. Lesson Read Watership Down no less than six times, and you'll understand that some animals are psychic, while others are clearly evil. These are things I know to be true.
On this day 16 years ago on the campus of University of Florida...The Six Best Kept Secrets..Spring 1998...crossed into ZETA Land.shout out to my sister(my biological one) and her line sisters, for being my inspiration for Zeta and truly being Big Sisters to me!!! Happy ZETAversary Ladies!!!

Wishing all my family/friends from Cincinnati Ballet a very Happy 50th Anniversary! 30 years ago I could never have imagined that I’d be sitting on a computer connecting back to all of you. After having watched two seasons of Breaking Pointe it made me think about how lucky I was to be in a company where we were really family. Jane E Green, Karen Travis, Barbara Stephanie Rand (Steffi), Claudia Rudolph, Linda Garner Miller – were the best “big sisters” always looking out for us young ones and also were awesome role models. The two Davids, Jimmy and Oleg – I loved as much as my own parents as they really helped to shape who I am today. My soul sisters – Alyce, Kathy Turner and Debbie Wilson will always have my endless love and gratitude. My real sister, Debby Lin – how awesome was it to have my best friend share this incredible experience. My best friends and tour roommates – Paula Davis, Carol Krajacic Erkes, Sheila McAulay Mello, Pam Harrison, Karen Karibo Hochwalt, Diane Edwards G ...

Good morning world. God spoke to my spirit this morning through my big sisters Mary Mary. Either you're going to complain, watch others do what you want to do & make excuses why you can't or you're going to go out there & get your blessing because you've worked hard for it regardless of your so called status. I choose to go get it, trust God and stay on the Who's with me hit the like button?

Hangin out with my mommy and big sisters and nieces for a couple days
My little sister sent me a text yesterday and said "Sis you got baby mamas in Japan looking you up" I laughed. I am still in shock at how fast God is moving. I prayed for a day on a team. The very next day God put these two women in front of me. I knew it was nothing but God b/c when I text and emailed these women they were on it. I feel so honored that God saw fit for my messed up self to be a voice to shut the enemies mouth. I will never ever call these women my team b/c God gets all the glory. Danielle GlamNurse Nichole Kelley Bell I am so grateful to have my big sisters with me. Lets invade the devils territory and *** our women out of his hands.
As I'm laying here on the couch feeling like crap feeling our little boy move and kick around in my belly. I realise how bitter-sweet this pregnancy is. That being said, only because this is my last baby, my last pregnancy, I won't be able to feel another person inside of me again. Wont be able to feel kicks, flutters, hiccups, or any movement in my belly after this. But yet I think of how this little miracle, our little boy will make our life complete! I can't wait to hold him and love him and watch him grow with his big sisters! I can't wait to just cherish and love all of my kids unconditionally. I can't wait for our family to be complete and to move forward in our lives.. I love my family with all my heart!! Now hurry up and get here may!!! As for now I'm going to lay here in this quiet house and play with kaleb until he stops and hopefully get some sleep myself!! Matthew Norton

Happy Birthday to one of my big sisters :)
And this alone girls is why the bar is set so high,...my little man is almost full grown...and by the time this happens I have no doubt he will be a VERY respectful Man! How could he not his mama,aunt,and 2 big sisters make sure he understands how you treat women.in return he sees the difference between what a good woman does and what she cant . Once I get the wrinkles out of his mind.sit back and watch what he does! And its because his mama has had his back from the moment he kicked my floating rib out of place.yes this mama will finish turning her baby boy into a man, not hard really just have to believe in them,love them, and make them understand you get what you give.nobody wants to be with a man who don't have respect for women and I feel pretty darn good about Dustin Swartz and how he is turning into that man all us women wish to find.therefore he deserves the same when he finds the right one in.6 years,...lol he will know and so will she...I love you son see you soon!

My son's pretty painted toenails ❤. He's 3 and loves to get them painted when I'm doing mine or his big sisters' toes. I think it's adorable and see no problem with it, but I do get tired of snide comments. If you don't have anything nice to say (especially to a three-year-old), you should probably just keep your yapper shut. [before I punch you in the throat (kidding/not kidding)]

Adoption Bonuses: The Money Behind the Madness CPS and affiliates rewarded for breaking up families Child "protection" is one of the biggest businesses in the country. We spend $12 billion a year on it. The money goes to tens of thousands of a) state employees, b) collateral professionals, such as lawyers, court personnel, court investigators, evaluators and guardians, judges, and c) DSS contracted vendors such as counselors, therapists, more "evaluators", junk psychologists, residential facilities, foster parents, adoptive parents, MSPCC, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, YMCA, etc. This newspaper is not big enough to list all of the people in this state who have a job, draw a paycheck, or make their profits off the kids in DSS custody. In this article I explain the financial infrastructure that provides the motivation for DSS to take people’s children – and not give them back. In 1974 Walter Mondale promoted the Child Abuse and Prevention Act which began feeding massive amounts of federal funding to s ...

Y'all this is Madonna, I met a woman on the Internet named Florence M. Howard and she may be related to us and it is like a 'bizzaro Madonna' concept. She even worked at a television station as a Community Relations director and was involved with Big Brothers and Big Sisters like me! GOLY! (like Gomer Pyle voice)

Copied verbatim from Sister Sarah O's FB page because we simply could not say it any better: "A heartfelt "two fists up" for West Vancouver, B.C.'s Charmaine A. Crooks on being invested into the Order of Canada!!! Charmaine Crooks is a role model of athleticism and volunteerism. The first Canadian woman to run 800 metres in under two minutes, she represented Canada internationally for 17 years, notably as a five-time Olympian and Olympic silver medallist. She then translated her experience as a competitor to the highest levels of sport leadership, serving on the Canadian Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee, where she was instrumental in developing its code of ethics. She also supports many charities, including the Canucks Autism Network, Big Sisters of B.C. Lower Mainland, and the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. BRAVO! BRAVO!!!"
SAE would like to thank all of you for your participation in the gift drive last week. We had a great turnout and ended up donating over 900 presents, which nearly doubled our gifts from last year. This Friday at 6 PM in the UC, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of East Tennessee will be coming out to get their gifts. There will be over 60 kids there accepting their presents. Due to limited space at the UC, we will not be able to have everyone come out. Therefore we will be asking the top 7 sororities to come out and help us hand out the gifts. The top 7 in no particular order: Alpha Chi Omega ADPI AOPI KD Phi Mu Pi Beta Phi Tri Delt If each of those sororities can bring 5 representatives that would be great. Thanks

On October 29, 2013, while the US Senate was in session, Senator Ben Cardin took a moment to speak these words: REMEMBERING BERNARD WYNDER -- (Senate - October 29, 2013) Madam President, I wish to pay tribute to an extraordinary individual, Bernard ``Bernie'' Wynder, who passed away at the much too young age of 58 this past June while serving as the president of the Allegany County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, NAACP. Bernie overcame the challenges of a childhood on the streets of East Baltimore and made it his life's work to mentor young Black men and help them to succeed as students, professionals, husbands, and fathers. Bernie generously gave his time and inimitable leadership to numerous community organizations, including Maryland Salem Children's Trust, Western Maryland Food Bank, Potomac Council Boy Scouts of America, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Allegany County Multicultural Committee, American Red Cross, and the City of Cumberland Mediation Advisory Counci ...

On behalf of United Way of SD&G we'd like to say a big thank you to Kraft for letting 25 of their employees donate their morning to volunteering at local United Way funded agencies. Agencies involved in this years Kraft Kares are: Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Canadian Red Cross, Maison Baldwin House, Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall, SD&G Developmental Services, Beyond 21, Counselling and Support Services, and CNIB.

There are some so called Big Sisters (I do not know from which secret society) been disturbing my friend asking her question about me. Here is my answer to the 3 stupid questions. 1) Why does my friend bake the same Belgium Chocolate cake with me and why did June Chan came in to bake Belgium Chocolate Cake instead of bread and chiffon cake? Do not need to disturb my friend. I think that person who asks this question is either a fool or trying to be smart. 2) Why did June Chan manage to get so many William Tan recipes? William Tan Chef recipe books can be brought at many book shop (Example Popular Book Store) and If anyone want to support any Chefs, please kindly buy their recipe books and not expect to take advantage of them just because they are friends to us in FACE BOOK. 3) Is June Chan very rich? At the age of 6, my parent already took me to the studio to take the above photo. What type of family do you think June Chan came from?

The second of our two bowling fundraisers is for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. For the first time in at least 15 years, I won't be able to make it to the actual event later this month (I'll be traveling that day), so I've registered as a "Virtual Bowler" in the hopes that you'll sponsor me anyway. Please visit my personal fundraising page and support this wonderful organization (I was a Big Brother for 10 years, so I'm speaking from experience!): even though the first fundraiser, for savenature.org, another very worthy non-profit, just took place, there's still time to contribute to that one, too. Go to: and scroll down to "Donate to Team 12- Lola and the Bug Lovers." Enter an amount and click the "Register" button. Thanks in advance for any and all contributions, and for even merely "liking" this post!
I need 10 of YOU to say you'll send me a donation of $7.50. I need to Bowl for Kids Sake this weekend and I need pledges! 10 people - minimum - GO! That is 2 Starbucks treats, 1 lunch when you go cheap, 1 movie ticket if you don't go in the afternoon...you get the picture. I'm not sure how to do the online pledge yet. If I figure that out during this crazy day, I'll post it. I can give you my address privately though or arrange to get the donation in another way. Tax deductible and for a great cause - Big Brothers and Big Sisters. I believe life is all about relationships that matter. These relationships matter and we need help making those connections with kids in the community.
If you're thinking of getting in the water next weekend, why not do it for a good cause? Help out Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland just by going for a fun dive.

Thanks everyone for Birthday wishes. with all the plowing and shoveling I certainly feel another year older today! Actually went bowling with my Little Brother Jaylen today (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) which was a great gift. Salad Bar at Dakota's is next big thing I'm looking forward too although celebratory glass of Pinot Noir is pretty good too. Again, thanks since it's so cool getting a bunch of emails from you all I wish I saw more often!
Thinking about my Big Sisters!!! Thank you! Thank you for teaching me-- preparing me for this haze called life. I still know the following by heart: INVICTUS! OUT of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance 5 I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, 10 And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: 15 I am the captain of my soul. INVICTUS! I'm still so in love with Delta Sigma Theta. Oo-oop!
Great day at the African Bazaar hosted at UB today. Aside from recruiting some potential Big Sisters, guess how exciting it is to run into former Little Sisters just finishing their undergraduate programs?! See??.it works!
by Gordon Peterson, Marketing Consultant & SECCA Foundation Board Member Recently, I spent an interesting afternoon touring SECCA’s current exhibitions with Aidan, my 9-year-old little brother from the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program. We walked into Vibha Galhotra’s Metropia exhibit with its works made of tiny bells and beads. His attention went immediately to the Dead Monster with its long body looping across the floor. “Wow,” he said. “It looks like something I’ve seen in a video game.” Upon further review with a furrowed brow he proclaimed, “It must have taken a long time to make this.” I explained the long hours and the help from other Indian women to sew all the bells together and that they are like the ones we saw on the ankles of the Indian dancers he saw at a SECCA Community Day celebration. He nodded and said, “Yeah, I remember. They were cool.” His attention quickly moved to the “giant snake,” better known as 15 Days in May and my first “why” question ...
Pete and I attended the candlelight vigil for Tylor Crippen tonight. His best friend was a friend's son. I learned that Tylor was attending MJC with the goal of becoming an RN, because he wanted to make a difference. If you are someone with any free time on your hands, please consider doing something to help prevent senseless crimes like Tylor's murder. Participate in Big Brothers/Big Sisters and be a role model for an at-risk youth, join your neighborhood watch group, keep your eyes open and be ready to help if you witness a crime. If you know of a child who is not getting the guidance he/she needs, make an effort to show you care. There are so many agencies and people out there who can help keep a kid on the right path instead of the path to crime and violence. All of the information is just a click away with the resources online. Do whatever you can...even if it's just to offer a smile. When you show you care, it can make a difference. My heart aches for the family and friends of Tylor, and ...

At 11:20 pm, I will celebrate 24 continuous years of being a financially active Soror of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I remember that day like it was yesterday. The Pyramids had been running (and hiding) all over campus and our Big Sisters were looking for us. By the end of the night we were so tired, we had no idea that we had finished. Shout out to my "Designed For Perfection" LS's.

Something that changes both of their lives. I promise!!!
Our dear Thornapple Family member, Mary Walberg, is asking for prayers for her husband's "little brother." To all of my FB family and friends... My husband is involved in Big Brothers/Big Sisters and we found out today, that his "little brother" was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne is a fatal, progressive muscle wasting disease that affects one in 3,500 boys worldwide. It robs boys of their ability to walk, eat, speak, breath and eventually takes their lives. Many boys lose their fight before they reach age 20. We are asking for prayers for Riley and his family. We are all heartbroken with this news. Riley is such a sweet boy and is extremely bright. He is a voracious reader and is reading at the 12th grade level. I believe in prayers and I believe in miracles, so if you could keep Riley in your prayers we would be forever grateful. I have attached his website. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Happy Founder's Day to my Zee-Blutiful Sorors!!

Happy 100th to all of my Delta Sorors! I am having a difficult finding the words to describe this past weekend! I will cherish these memories for the rest of my life. I keep pinching myself because I can't believe God Blessed me to be a part of this Great Sisterhood and allowed me to be a part of the 100th Celebration. Wow! Somebody wake me up - on second thought, don't. Am I dreaming? I became a Delta almost 41 years ago - 4/22/72 at Howard University, Alpha Chapter. I had no idea then, how I would feel today. This weekend, I reconnected with my Line Sisters, Big Sisters and Little Sisters. I met many new Sisters and also shared the weekend with my SFAC Sisters! What a blessing. I thank my Mother for he legacy she left me. I miss her so much but I know she was celebrating with me this past weekend. A Big Thank You to all the Deltas and everyone else who worked so hard to make our 100th Anniversary Celebration so magical. I witnessed Delta at her very best! We so enjoyed it all! We laughed, c ...

The Wildrose plan to pay for a downtown arena is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard. Let's pretend for a minute that organizations like YESS, Big Brothers & Big Sisters and the Boys & Girls Clubs get 25-35% of their budget from provincial lotteries and the other 65-75% through private fundraising efforts like the Dream Home Lottery and Homeless For A Night. (We actually don't have to pretend, that's how it works.). The argument that $1 Keno tickets going to billionaires arenas will not impact the funding of non-profit organizations because their lotteries are more expensive is false. The $1 Keno tickets will take away people purchasing $1 scratch tickets and VLT spins which is what is used to fund community support inititives. If the 25-35% funding those agencies receive dips to 20, 15 or 10 percent that means programs will be cut and staff will be put out of work. In their place the money will be used to pay arena ushers and fast food cashiers minimum wage 12 hours a week without benefits. A new ar ...
On October 31st, 2012, i stated this page and told the story of my first experience with the paranormal. Here is my second story; When i was 9 or 10 my three siblings and I moved from my Dad's home to my Mom's. She had recently moved back to Nova Scotia from Montreal. I remember getting to her (and my step-fathers) home and thinking how cool the house looked, sitting on top of a hill with a nice big balcony on the front AND right across the road from the new school i would be attending. I couldn't wait to get inside, see my new room and play with my new baby sister. I walked into the house and instantly felt uncomfortable. I stopped dead in my tracks. As i stood in the foot of the door way, i looked around. Stairs to my right lead up to the bedroom i would be sharing with one of my sisters. Straight ahead was the kitchen that lead into a dinning room. On my left was the entrance to the living room. I could feel something watch me as I stood there, examining my surroundings.This would be the beginning of M ...
We've all heard it before: Parenting is the toughest job in the world. So why do so many of us do it? Read each day as we countdown those epic, heart-melting childrearing moments that make it all worthwhile. Feel Free to comment, Posted by :) Michelle. 3. SAYING GOOD BYE TO THE CRIB When the last baby grows up and out of the nursery, it's hard not to get a little teary while dismantling the crib. Our first nursery was ready long before the tiny person who would fill it arrived. And in the weeks before I gave birth, I often settled in the rocking chair and let my thoughts wander to the baby who would change my life. My eyes always went to the crib. I felt connected to the way it was waiting to meet her, too. For 10 years, I leaned over its railings, shushing, patting, and, yes, even breastfeeding my babies to sleep. For 10 years, I lifted babies up and into the day, until one by one they outgrew its walls. Letting go of baby items has never been easy for me. Saying goodbye to the one that welcomed and crad ...

Resilience building The American Psychological Association suggests "10 Ways to Build Resilience", which are: (1) maintaining good relationships with close family members, friends and others; (2) to avoid seeing crises or stressful events as unbearable problems; (3) to accept circumstances that cannot be changed; (4) to develop realistic goals and move towards them; (5) to take decisive actions in adverse situations; (6) to look for opportunities of self-discovery after a struggle with loss; (7) developing self-confidence; (8) to keep a long-term perspective and consider the stressful event in a broader context; (9) to maintain a hopeful outlook, expecting good things and visualizing what is wished; (10) to take care of one's mind and body, exercising regularly, paying attention to one's own needs and feelings. A number of self-help approaches to resilience-building have been developed, drawing mainly on the theory and practice of cognitive-behavioural therapy. Resilience and social programs Head Star ...

Title: Kathy and Her Roommates By: VM Chang Hello NGS readers! I just wanted to start off by saying I’m a big fan of this page and the stories. My family reads these stories on long road trips and it has been very enjoyable and scary to read about other peoples’ ghostly experiences. I figured it's about time I share some of the stories I've heard over the years. This story involves my good friend, Kathy*. By sheer coincidence, Kathy moved into the building next door to mine in 2009-2010. We both lived on top of small businesses. She lived on top of a restaurant and my sisters and I lived on top of a dry cleaner. Both of our apartments were haunted and we would each experience various spiritual incidents over the years. This passage will focus on Kathy as her experiences occurred over a period of time. It's not that scary in written form as it is a series of events that have occurred over many years but they are TRUE incidents of encounters with spirits. When Kathy lived next door to me, she had a roo ...
Glad I saw and tonight there like my big sisters love y'all and go cards

Also today, we're discussing the dreaded Christmas presents we don't really want. It's been found thousands of unwanted gifts have ended up on auction sites, some of which are still wrapped! Did you get anything you want rid of already? What was the worst present you got? We'd love to hear from you.

The Cutie Mark Crusaders Despite earning her cutie mark in an endeavor that came naturally to her, Rainbow Dash advises Apple Bloom to try out many different activities to gain her cutie mark in Call of the Cutie, leading the filly and her friends to pursue their cutie marks in the wrong avenues. When coaching Apple Bloom in Call of the Cutie, Rainbow Dash dons a sports headband, a whistle, and later a martial arts uniform with a black belt when Apple Bloom tries karate. Scootaloo, the Pegasus pony of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, idolizes Rainbow Dash. While Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle are the younger sisters of two ponies from the main cast, Applejack and Rarity, respectively, Scootaloo is not related to Rainbow Dash.  Rainbow Dash affectionately calls Scootaloo "squirt" in Owl's Well That Ends Well and The Mysterious Mare Do Well, and appears alongside Rarity and Applejack to congratulate the Cutie Mark Crusaders for their performance during The Show Stoppers. Rainbow Dash saves Scootaloo.In Sleepless ...

What should Kim and Kanye name their baby?
For all those who are wondering why there is a ticket for WOC. The payment that we are asking for is not something that goes into our pockets. There is a lot of cost involved in arranging an event for around 400 people. From venue, stage, audio visual support to food and other stuff. Whatever you would be spending would be in the way of Allah SWT and He will reward you immensely (may be up to 700 times, and thats a big number :D) for that. Insha'Allah we will try to publish a detailed report of the finances after the event. The reason we are always given free Islam is most of the time reason for us to take it for granted. We must learn to sacrifice for it. Jazakmullahu khair.
I'm ready for my sisters & I to get married have beautiful kids & a big beautiful happy family 👌😊
Fan vent: I would like to vent please. I have baby on the way. His name will be Griffin. I am so surprised at how many people (friends, family and coworkers) have bluntly said that they don't like the name to my face! Plus behind my back. I just can't believe it. It doesn't effect them, it's not their name. So why go through the trouble of hurting my feelings? The way I see it is, my husband, myself and our parents like it... So everyone else's opinions shouldn't matter. I didn't think the name was overly unique compared to other names and I would just never tell someone that I didn't like their unborn child's name.

yes I have a little bro but I meant to my in-laws and a big sis of Little Sisters.

This is a true story that happened in Japan. In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was! first built. What happened? The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years! In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling. Thenhe wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years! without moving a single step-- since its foot was nailed! So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating. Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth. Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another ...
