Keep The Sweat Out Of Your Eyes With A Suddora Sweatband


Pink Ribbon Sweatband Set from Suddora. I have started to ride a stationary bike every morning the last few months. I don’t always ride hard enough to work up a heavy sweat, but when I do it is nice to have something on to keep it from running into my eyes.

Even if you don’t need them for that they are also nice and warm.  These are thick and fluffy feeling and would be a great way to help keep your wrists warm, when working outside.

If you are shoveling snow you could use them the keep the tops of your gloves closed up so nothing gets in them.  My husband had that problem with his work gloves before.

I like this Pink Ribbon Set from Suddora that I received to review. It is a pretty color and has the pink ribbon on it to show your support of breast cancer research.

These sweatband sets are made with 80% Cotton, 12% Spandex and 8% Nylon, and are standard sizes.

Dirk’s Fund Golden Retriever Rescue

Dirk’s Fund Golden Retriever Rescue

Dirk's Fund Golden Retriever RescueDirk’s Fund Golden Retriever Rescue is a no-kill organization located near St. Louis, Missouri. They rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for homeless dogs of all ages. The dogs are not all full blooded Golden Retrievers either. They have taken in other breeds.

They are run completely by volunteers. They have no payroll at all. Everything from cleaning up poop to cleaning the dogs is either done by volunteers or paid for from donations.

And it does take a lot to take care of dogs. They need shelter, food, water,  vaccinations, heart worm preventative, at minimum.  Beds, blankets, toys, and pools to play with/in are also nice to have. Most of all they need love.

I became acquainted with Dirk’s Fund when someone dumped a male dog out in the cemetery next to my house. I contacted our local shelter to see if they could find a home for him. Dirk’s Fund had room at the time and one of their volunteers drove two hours to pick up the dog. And they found a home for him within a few weeks.

If you are in the St. Luis area and would like to volunteer they have a web page with information for volunteers. Or you can make a monetary donation online if you would like to do that.

They have some interesting fund raisers coming up too.

The first one is on August 25, 2012 from 11 am to 5:30 pm and includes a buffet and music. This is for you and your pet! And if you don’t have a pet you can find one here if you want. Click on the picture for pricing and more information.

Dog Days Of Summer At The WineryThen on September 4th you can take your dog for a swim at the annual K9 splash.

There are several mobile adoption events too and an open house which includes treats for humans and your four legged friends(you can bring your dog).

I wish I lived closer. Some of those events sound like lots of fun and it is for a good cause. If you are in the area check them out.

Charity Hopping Around The World Giveaway

Charity Hopping Around The World Giveaway

Charity Hopping Around The World March 30th to April 4th.Welcome to the Charity Hopping Around The World Giveaway Hop!

This hop is hosted by: I Am A Reader, Not A Writer,  Reading Away the Days, and Reading a Little Bit of Everything.

Each blog in this hop is going to be introducing you to one of thier favorite charities and having a giveaway for you to enter too.

There are just over a hundred blogs participating so there are lots of charities to read about as well as some nice prizes to win.

I would like to introduce you to Dirks Fund Golden Retriever Rescue. I became familiar with them a few months ago when a dog was dumped out here by my house.

At least I’m assuming he was dumped…he might have just excaped from somewhere but since dogs get dumped in this area regularly and no one seemed to know where he came from…that seemed to be the best bet.

We could not keep him. We couldn’t afford all the heart worm meds and shots.  And besides that he kept getting out in the road. Which meant he would eventually get hit by a vehicle and badly hurt if not killed.

We called the local shelter which had no room for him either but did put his infomation up on their website. The folks at Dirks Fund saw his picture and offered to take him in and find a home for him.

We did have to drive him part of the way up to the shelter but a volunteer met us halfway. They had him fixed and got his shots and heartworm meds and already found him a home!

These are good people! They are always in need of donations if you would like to do that. They are also in need of all sorts of volunteers if you happen to live close enough(St. Louis, MO area). Please spread the word!

For this hop I’m giving away $10 Paypal cash so everyone can enter. Just enter on the Rafflecopter form below. Then hop on over to the next blog to read about more great charities and enter more giveaways!

What Is Your Favorite Charity?

What Is Your Favorite Charity?

When I was working on my post for a charity hop giveaway that will be going live tomorrow night (be sure and come back!) I had trouble choosing which charity to use.

I actaully support several. I used to donate a little bit of money to a lot of charities but then I read an article that says it is actually more helpful to pick just a few you really like.

That way they ones you really like get more support and you end up getting a lot less spam mails (snail and email).

It seemed like a really good point to me. So for the last few years I have supported the Northeast Arkansas Food Bank which helps feed people in Northeast Arkansas by distrubiting food through a network of non-profit agencies and programs. I like this one because it fills a basic need…everyone needs to eat.

I have also supported The Salvation Army. They also feed people but not just in Arkansas. They do many other things as well.  They have alchohol and drug rehabilitation programs too and they have shelters for the homeless. I like that this one is just about everywhere.

The American Red Cross is good too. They are especially helpful in disasters and they help people worldwide.

Other than that I do try to remember to click daily at the Animal Rescue Site to help feed animals in shelters. And I try to support them and Dirks Fund(this is the one in my hop post) with tweets/shares on facebook and twitter as well.

What charities do you usually support? Why do you like that particular charity?
