Nature and Nurture
Today we leave for the extended holiday weekend to visit family on the farm.
I LOVE visiting my family’s farm and so do my boys… a slower pace, our family around, being close to nature and the marvels of her beauty, farm life is a blessing unlike any other!
Speaking of nature… when we come back it will be April 1st (no, I don’t do any April Fool’s pranks sorry) but no foolin… starting April 1st I will be asking the WORLD to participate in a month-long focus on the environment, our eco footprints and our service to humanity and our earth in honor of two special events: Earth Day AND International Mother Earth Day on April 22nd and Starbucks “Global Month of Service” happening all April long.
My challenge is hosted on the International website Challengera.com and comes with a GREAT Starbucks gift to the winner! So go check out Challengera.com this weekend, sign up and start thinking about how YOU can help make a positive impact during the month of April with your service to humanity and/or our earth.
The challenge is easy… just sign up on Challengera.com and submit your image, song, audio recording, video, poem WHATEVER you think depicts being Green, Eco, Environmental or basically a steward of the earth and the winner will be posted on April 22nd.
I will also be posting images of my month-long challenge on Challengera.com during this time… what’s my challenge? To save ALL of my containers from all the items I purchase in April to see just how much waste is created and how much can be recycled! I will be adding to this eco-footprint collection the secondary challenge to try and LIMIT my packaging as much as possible for the whole month!
Have a wonderful weekend celebrating your special events everybody!
Let’s paint the entire month of April Starbucks GREEN!by
