Can I make my life better?

Standard

Last month I was in Hollywood for the GBK Kids Choice Award Event Fund Raiser for the American Cancer Society! One of the donors to the event was a foundation called the Make Life Better Foundation. They invited my daughter and I to share in the launch of their Make Life Better Transformation to Hollywood celebrities and their moms!

Here I am with my daughter, Kristen Montgomery and a famous dog!

We met with lots of celebs and then after the event they invited me to try the Make Life Better Transformation . . . See some event photos here . . .

Power Mom Gets Organic Facial Thanks to Green PolkaDot Box

Standard

To me saying I am going organic includes skin care. In my second month’s order from the Green PolkaDot Box I decided to add to my new year of organic living with organic skincare. Wow! there are many more bath and beauty products than I ever imagined and it can be expensive. But the thanks to the Green PolkaDot Box and the savings the offer I could afford to buy three! I choose to try the Pangea Organics skin care line and the Hugo Naturals Soaps and Shampoos. I used Pangea Organics Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai & Goji Berry Facial Mask, Italian Red Mandarin with Rose Facial Cream and French Rosemary with Sweet Orange. Mmmm the names sound heavenly!

Power Mom Supports Sports and Nutrition Fund Raiser sponsored by the Green PolkaDot Box!

Green PolkaDot Box and AMP Athletics program shares sports and nutrition message with families at fund-raising event for children who can’t afford to participate in athletic events. The Green PolkaDot Box, a new online buying collective membership that gives families affordable access to healthy foods, provided two teams and healthy snack options at the AMP Athletics 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament Fund Raiser.

Rod A. Smith, founder of The Green PolkaDot Box™ (GPDB) was pleased to provide a sports and nutrition message along with healthy snacks and one adult and one youth basketball team to help support the AMP Athletics “3 on 3 Basketball” fund-raising tournament. The Green PolkaDot Box, a new online “buying collective” membership club, provides families with affordable access to healthy, natural and clean foods and products from their organic products warehouse in Spanish Fork, Utah. AMP Athletics is a non-profit corporation founded to provide opportunities for children who have the desire to participate in athletics but are limited because of finances. GPDB shared healthy and delicious snack options at the AMP Athletics 60-team basketball fund-raising tournament at the Salem Hills High School, located near The Green PolkaDot Box organic food warehouse in Spanish Fork, Utah.

Green PolkaDot Box sends teams and healthy snacks to support fund raiser for youth athletics and to raise awareness forsports nutrition!

The Green PolkaDot Box, newly launched in December, is a national company based in Utah, was honored to provide healthy snack options for 600 athletes and their families. Organic Snacks options being offered at the fund raising basketball tournament included dried fruit, coconut water and gluten-free, organic snacks. The Green PolkaDot Box also sponsored two basketball teams, a company team and the only all girls youth team entered in the tournament.

The Green PolkaDot Box Basketball Teams!

The Green PolkaDot Box offers healthy snacks for optimum sports nutrition.

GPDB founder, Rod A. Smith, says that with 41 million American kids playing competitive sports it makes sense that 78 percent of U.S. families – more than ever before –are starting to include some organic foods in their diets, according to CNN and a study recently published by the Organic Trade Association.

“American families who want to eat well and live well are often limited by lack of affordable resources,” says Rod A. Smith. “The Green PolkaDot Box gives members access to clean, organic foods at up to a 60 percent savings, making it more affordable than ever for families to invest in sports-nutrition based eating habits. AMP Athletics helps fund children who want to participate in sports. Together, we hope to educate children and their parents who love sports, about healthy food options that afford them the opportunity to play healthier!”

According to Ryan Bowler, many parents in the United States cannot afford to pay for school lunch let alone to pay for their kids to play sports. He says 38 percent of students, over 215,000 children in Utah alone, are receiving free and reduced school meals. Ryan and his wife Amanda founded AMP Athletics to help families with the additional costs associated with sports so more families would have the opportunity to sign their kids up for the sports and activities they love. The AMP Athletics “3 on 3 Basketball Tournament” fund raiser model is their way of helping children while involving people and sponsors in the sports they love.

“AMP Athletics wants to make sports programs affordable to all children who have an interest,” says Ryan Bowler, AMP Athletics founder. “We are pleased that The Green PolkaDot Box would join us to share an affordable sports and health message which will help all families support our youth in living healthy and active lifestyles.”

AMP Athletics believes kids can learn discipline, hard work, communication, positive conflict resolution, and other life skills through sports that they may not learn by sitting around at home. AMP Athletics believes when children are denied the opportunities to get involved in sports due to lack of finances they miss out on life skills they learn that help prepare them to lead productive lives. Their goal is to AMPlify the lives of underprivileged children by enabling them to participate in sports facilitating their physical, emotional, and social development. http://www.ampathletics.org.
