service nation summit - tomorrow

this sounds very cool!

ServiceNation Summit, Sept. 11-12 in New York city, will bring together 500 leaders of all ages and from every sector of American life —from universities and foundations, to business and politics—to celebrate the power and potential of citizen service, and lay out a bold policy blueprint for addressing America’s greatest social challenges through expanded opportunities for volunteer and national service.

The Summit will begin with a presidential candidates' forum the evening of September 11, where Senators McCain and Obama will speak in depth about their views on the role of citizenship and service in post-9/11 America. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will welcome the attendees when the proceedings continue the following day, and the summit will conclude with a keynote address by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who earlier this year became the first governor to create a cabinet post dedicated to service and volunteering.

The ultimate goal of the ServiceNation Summit, which will also promulgate a Declaration of Service that all Americans will be invited to sign, is to inspire an America in which, by 2020, 100 million citizens will volunteer time in schools, workplaces, and faith-based and community institutions each and every year (up from 61 million today), and that increasing numbers of Americans annually will commit a year of their lives to national service. that engages one million Americans a year in full-time service by the year 2020.

The ServiceNation Summit is being co-chaired by Caroline Kennedy, Alma Powell (Chair of America’s Promise Alliance), TIME’s Richard Stengel, Vartan Gregorian (President of Carnegie Corporation of New York), and Bill Novelli (CEO of AARP). It is underwritten by a grant from Carnegie Corporation and Presented by TIME, AARP and Target.

view Service Nation's website here

added bonus! 5pm Thursday
Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama will participate in a televised Presidential Forum on Service. This conversation will be moderated by TIME Managing Editor Richard Stengel and PBS Senior Correspondent Judy Woodruff. CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and PBS are all covering it - take your pick.

i just wanted to thank you all for your support for tomorrow's PAWSwalk! i am just under my goal of $500 and am just floored that i was able to raise that much in less than a week. i have the best friends, so blessed!

thank you thank you, salamat, muchas muchas gracias, danke


help a sista & her animal friends out!

hi friends!

On September 6th, I will be walking in PAWSwalk for the first time!

If you have a pet or know someone who does, you know that it's not easy or cheap to care for them.
Imagine having to care for hundreds of abandoned or abused pets!

I'm walking to raise money for PAWS because I'm amazed by the work they accomplish every day for animals.

PAWS is well-known for their work with pets. In 2007 alone, PAWS Companion Animal Shelter found new and loving homes for more than 2,500 cats and dogs. That means literally TONS of cat litter, dog and cat food, toys, and treats.
And, that's why I'm asking for your support!

Your gift of $30 will feed every dog and cat in the shelter for one day.

PAWS is also a leader in educating our community on animal compassion. During the last school year, PAWS Humane Educators reached more than 4,000 students, ensuring that tomorrow's leaders are taught compassion for animals right from the start.

I love what PAWS does, and I hope you will support me in my walk to help the animals!

Follow This Link to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support PAWS!

Thank you!


excuse me mrs. busybody

i am going to put this out there: work has me overwhelmed right now. i'm still doing the job of two and it has literally manifested itself into physical pain. i can feel the stress in my shoulders and i cannot relax - crazy huh? i've been trying to work out when i'm not completely exhausted - but then again i am also taking naps after work again. my nike friends know i used to do that all the time, but honestly i haven't in at least a year.

i know it probably won't ease up for me until we get a new teammate on board, and i'm okay with that. it's definitely a challenge!

what are your favorite ways to relax and de-stress?
