When I was 17, the hardest decision I ever had to make was choosing between attending my senior prom and competing in the NJ State Meet of Champions. (Tough life, right?) Both events happened to land on the same day. I chose prom, in case you were wondering. .
That same year, I also received my first driver’s license. It was a no brainer for me to register as an organ donor on my driver’s license. If I’m going to die, I might as well save some lives while I’m dead. I wouldn’t want those good looking organs to go to waste!
If you told my 17-year old self that I’d be donating an organ in 10 years, I probably would have laughed at you. Yet...here we are. .
The decision to donate was not hard at all, but the decision to STILL CHOOSE to donate in the midst of opposition and overwhelmingly difficult obstacles for an ENTIRE year was probably one of, if not the hardest decisions of my life. I don’t regret it one bit, and I’d do it all over again if I could. I’m so thankful for God’s calling and I’m now learning that my story (well, God’s story through me) has been impacting more people than I ever could have imagined.
It’s time for Janelle’s update! She donated her kidney on December 12th!
How would she sum up her experience? “Worth it. It was all worth it.” Click the link for her full update!

On January 14, Erricka shared a heartfelt Facebook post about her financial difficulties and the stress associated with the unknown of being able to continue her mission without reliable transportation, as her third vehicle in two years was on its last leg. Erricka’s Facebook post received an abundance of support, including the creation of a GoFundMe campaign, which quickly raised over $12,000.
Steve Fader, CEO of MileOne Autogroup, learned of her incredible efforts, and with the support of the Heritage division decided to gift Erricka a vehicle, thereby alleviating her financial stress by allowing her to use the funds raised from the GoFundMe campaign to further the efforts of Baltimore Ceasefire. #baltimoreceasefire#baltimoreceasefire365#stoptheviolence#vw#vdublove#vwtiguan#dontshoot#handsup#baltimorecrime#bethechange

Part of my mission here is to help make safer products more accessible. I know that things like finances and budgets are very personal and can depend on so many factors, so I always want to offer different suggestions with the hope that something will resonate and help you see that you can make this work for you.
1) Go slowly with the process of switching to safer products. When you run out of something, choose to replace it with a safer option.
2) Swap out products that you use all the time and/or that sit on your skin for a long period of time.
3) Shop discounted bundles and special offers for extra savings. Though it’s a bigger investment up front, you save in the long-run by taking advantage of the discounts/deals.
To help you make the swap to cleaner cosmetics, @beautycounter has an amazing offer available right now. You get a set of 6 safer products that is already discounted (only $150 for the bundle which saves you $37) PLUS a free retractable foundation brush ($35 value) — this deal is too good to pass up so grab yours before it expires tonight!
Need help choosing? I love to help! Have you already started making the switch to safer products in your home? I’d love to know how it’s going!

Food for thought... I want to be someone who spends their life building people up instead of tearing them down. I have experienced enough of the hurt of this world and I'm sure I'm guilty of past transgressions myself. There is nothing weak or wrong in wanting to bring positivity and hope back into this world. There is enough darkness. #quote#think#soul#change#bethechange
UNHRC seeks to safeguard and to promote the human rights around the globe.
To pioneer the CUMUN, UNHRC would discuss on issue of religious fundamentalism and extremism with special emphasis on the Middle East. Religious extremism is something which we would oppose.But in the Middle East army has deteriorated with magneficient territories shrinking into turf. Vulnerable borders, weak regimes and poor enforcement are the ingredients preyed by extremism that can give birth to a hub of violence. It is need of the hour to curb the violent streams from posing a threat and we need to seek a solution to keep these hazards at bay.
Enroll yourself to be a part of CUMUN! May wit conquer inhumanity! Let actions devor violence!
Be a part of revolution, be the changemaker!! Register to be a part of CUMUN now!
Time to bring the change! Time to be the change!
Let the diplomacy prevail!
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, START WITH YOURSELF
During my walk I heard these lyrics in a song I was listening to. Afterwards I shoveled my walk and I kept thinking, why am I doung this. NO ONE else on my street shoveled theirs... (Because thats the kind of neighborhood I live in) so this is pointless. Everyone is walking in the street anyways. .
But then the words I had heard in my song came to my mind. I would love to live in a neighborhood where people shoveled their sidewalks. I would love to see that little piece of my world change... So I need to start with what I can control.
Thank you to Darwin School for inviting me to guest teach a couple of Phys. Ed. classes this morning. The Louis Riel School Division school served as the pilot school for ‘The HERO Project’, and has graciously supported me in the initiative’s development, particularly Student Services Teacher Maureen Nash and School Principal Nicholas Kelly. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
Powered by LOVE, the school-based mindful breathing, mobility and Yoga movement initiative is on a mission to help uplift, inspire and empower children to become their best selves.

|unbezahlte Werbung| Kennt ihr schon die Schokolade 🍫 von @share ?
Ich habe diese durch Zufall im @dm_deutschland gefunden👁. .
Was macht Share so besonders?🤔
Share basiert auf dem 1=1 Prinzip. Kurz mit jedem Kauf eines Shareprodukts tust du gutes. Für ein Lebensmittel🍫 ( Bspw. Riegel oder Schokolade) wird einem Menschen in Not eine Mahlzeit🥣 gespendet. Mit dem Kauf einer Flasche Wasser 💦versorgt man einen Mensch einen Tag lang mit Wasser💦. Für eine Seife🧖♀️ wird einem Menschen einem Stück Seife🧖♀️ geholfen.
Das tolle dabei: man sieht wo die Hilfe ankommt. Denn eine Tracking ID ist auf dem Produkt hinterlegt .
So hat eine der beiden Schokoladen das Projekt Lebensmittelrettung 🍎🥕🥔in Deutschland 🇩🇪 und die andere Schokolade das Projekt Mahlzeiten für Kinder🧒🍜 in Myanmar 🇲🇲 unterstützt. .
Auch wenn ich meine Schokolade gerne selbst herstelle , finde ich die Idee & die Umsetzung super! Wenn ich mal keine Lust habe greif ich absofort zu der Share Schokolade. ✌
Kurz zu der Schokolade :
Diese wurde in der Schweiz 🇨🇭 hergestellt und ist zu 100% #bio und ohne Palmöl. Die Variante Traube🍇-Nuss🌰 ist sogar noch #vegan .
Ihr bekommt eine Tafel Schokolade🍫 à..
..100 gr in der Variante Traube🍇-Nuss🌰 für 1,85 Euro
..100 gr in der Variante Vollmilch🥛 für 1,55 Euro
