Making a difference, one life at a time! whether starfish or human!

One day, a man was walking along the beach, enjoying the morning sun and cool breeze from the ocean.

Suddenly, far off in the distance, he saw what looked like someone dancing.  But as he drew closer, the man noticed that it was a little girl picking up starfish from the shore and tossing them back into the ocean.

As he approached the girl, he paused for a moment, kind of puzzled, then asked, "Young lady - why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?"

And she replied…"Well, the sun is up, and the tide is going out. If I leave these starfish on the beach, the sun will dry them up and they will die."

And the man said “But there are thousands of starfish washed up all along this beach for miles! You can’t possibly make a difference!"

The young girl thought for a moment, then slowly leaned over, and carefully picked up another starfish from the sand. And with the starfish in hand, she turned to the man and gently said "You may be right, but it’ll make a difference to this one!"

And with that, she reached back and threw the starfish as far as she could back into the ocean.

SPEAK UP! World Choking Game Awareness Day

Mark this date down now! October 11, 2012! 
Go Here Now Facebook Event Page
Do it now! I mean it!
Save the ribbon above onto your computer or device now!
Alright, Thank you! now read this! Make sure to visit all the links and educate yourself!

10-11-12 the ages you should talk to kids because the average age of death is 13. It is estimated that 75% of kids know about the game but 40% of kids think it's harmless. It is not - just start asking 13 and 14 yr olds if they've heard of a game where kids pass out for fun because it has way too many names among kids to ask just about the choking game..

On 10/11/12, we request that you make the ribbon your profile pic or at least talk to some people about the game. 

IT IS going on around you - SPEAK UP

 and help keep our children from dying a senseless death.

Pinterest and The Choking Game who guessed?

Tonight I searched my favorite website Pinterest for pins about "The Choking Game" thinking that Pinterest was just for cute crafty home kind of stuff, and I was totally wrong. I did find many pins that mentioned TCG so I created a board dedicated to safety and our children. You can find my Pinterest tab to the right on the sidebar. If you are on Pinterest search #Chokinggame #kidssafety for other interesting pins to add to your own boards. Pinterest is a great way to connect your educational efforts also with others and spread the word and cause to help stop the choking game, especially if you link your Pinterest with Twitter and Facebook!
