If you're like me and you enjoy giving a bit of yourself in order to help others, you might want to consider donating blood in Broward County. I first started donating in Tallahassee more than 7 years ago through Southeastern Community Blood Center and, since moving to South Florida 4 years ago, have continued by donating through Community Blood Centers of South Florida. If you've considered it, but are hesitant, there's really no need to be. It only takes ~30 minutes and every little bit goes a long way toward saving lives.

Play Pretty Beauty - 10/21/07 08:55 PM
Recently, Danielle Knox Ross, invited me, along with some Girlfriends, to attend the launch of her Natural Bath and Beauty Care Product Line, Play Pretty Beauty.

Support Home Ownership for All Specialty License Plate - 10/16/07 12:18 PM

The remainder of the proceeds shall be used by Homeownership For All, (6 comments)
Broward County Schools Volunteer - 10/16/07 12:43 AM
Along with my other volunteer activities, I recently became a Broward County Schools Volunteer. I had been thinking about it for a while, but hadn't yet decided how and when I was going to fit it in. Anyway, I figured it out and I'm enjoying it. Before beginning, I was told that I would be assigned to a 1st Grader who doesn't speak English and needs help with reading. Well, English is my first and only language, so of course, I was worried about how exactly I would be able to help this student. Upon arriving in the Classroom the 1st Day, (2 comments)
