Let's Retire The Word- "Retard "

        
                     
  1.      "Retard" and other derogatory terms that refer to children and adults with disabilities should be banned or retired from our vocabulary. People who have disabilities are no different from the rest of us,  they just have a few different challenges .

Making Summer Better for You Your Family and the World


Summer
"Summer" by Kevin Dooley



    

                    Imagine it's the end of June and you have a family.  Your kids have already told you, "I'm bored" 50 to 100 times. You want to give back and volunteer, but home and work  just cut into your time and money.  So, what are your options? Here are a few, from the simple to complex in random order(some may have to be in planning stages this summer in order to do them the next year)     










by 

USFWS Mountain-Prairie






        This option is not for you if you have young children or don't have a lot of vacation time. A few links to check out if you are interested;  









                   








2. Volunteer locally 









Join and search  VolunteerMatch to find opportunities sorted by distance and/or interest.





3. Host an exchange student

   This requires a commitment of 10 to 12 months, but it can be very worthwhile for you, your family, as well as the student. My family hosted a student from Germany and one from the Netherlands  via Face The World over 5 years ago.  To learn more, look at these links;

























4. Take on 1 charity project and do it with your relatives , church or neighborhood

 5. Use a search provider that gives to a favorite cause





              by wikipedia


                    
                      You use the web to search for fun or work, why not 
make each search add up to some good by using Dailygood by Goodsearch or iGive.com to raise funds for a favorite charity?





6. Donate a fan






            Donate a new or  gently used fan to the Salvation Army.
