  • I Dropped Off 104 Zhu Zhu Pets At A Hospital For Kids With Cancer!
    Tweet In a time when most are focusing on getting the most for their kids, some are inspired to do something further. Having spent the previous 2 holiday seasons scrounging for employment we felt blessed to have a roof over our heads and food on the table this year. Things are tough, but they could be tougher. It was with that vision in mind that I designed The Mommy...

  • Post Your Ideas by Sept 1st | That’s Ingenious Challenge: $10,000 For School Charity
    Tweet WHAT? You already read about my iRobot tour so you would have got a feel for the company behind the That’s Ingenious challenge.

  • Grant The Gift Of Reading!
    Tweet Speaking as a mom of early readers and an avid lover of reading (I only wish my reading list contained something other than children stories, but then again my music selection also suffers the same fate), I strongly believe in the importance of reading (the earlier the introduction to books the better). When my 3 year old daughter showed a keen interest in numbers...

  • Starbucks Sees (RED) On AIDS Day!
    Tweet It is AIDS day and it was a pleasant surprise to see Starbucks jump on the Product (RED) bandwagon and give some proceeds of drinks on this day to the AIDS fund. AIDS is a topic close to my heart, especially coming from South Africa, and hubby from India (the two largest countries impacted by AIDS). On the Facebook (virtual) event many chastised the coffee house...
