Make a Wish, Pink Shirt Day, and Valentine's Treat Bags

Please, please, please share a link today on your blog, Facebook, Twitter accounts, or any other social media you are using.  My posts today are about Make a Wish and Anti-Bullying.  Let's all work together to help out and take a stand!  Make sure to read all the way through and join us to get a little treat for yourself...

My class is collecting money for Make a Wish.  Last year we raised over $800!  I'd love to beat  that this year. Please let me know if you'd like to donate!  I'll match all $10 donations! 

David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied, for wearing a pink shirt. They took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new Grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys in their school.
‘I learned that two people can come up with an idea, run with it, and it can do wonders,’ says Mr. Price, 17, who organized the pink protest. ‘Finally, someone stood up for a weaker kid.’ So Mr. Shepherd and some other headed off to a discount store and bought 50 pink tank tops. They sent out message to schoolmates that night, and the next morning they hauled the shirts to school in a plastic bag. As they stood in the foyer handing out the shirts, the bullied boy walked in. His face spoke volumes. ‘It looked like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders,’ Mr. Price recalled. The bullies were never heard from again.”

Visit Runde's Room for more information on this adorable craft below. I'm spreading the word at my school with my Student Council kiddos.  Please share and think pink! 

Also, if you want to partner with someone for a Valentine's Treat Bag, please comment below.  I'll partner you with a blogging buddy and we can share pics of our treats after Valentine's Day!  Let's plan on about $15 including shipping.
