September 2014: Partnership for a Healthier America

With school starting back up, I felt it was necessary to draw attention to children and the way they go about their day. Children should aim to get at least 60 minutes of exercise each day. It is also important for children to maintain a healthy diet as things that you eat in your younger…

August 2014: Courte Oreilles Lakes Association (COLA)

This month’s cause will be donating products with our “Come Sail Away” pocket to the Courte Oreilles Lakes Association. I have been an avid lake girl my entire life. Each summer we go up to a cabin in Wisconsin that has been in my family for over 100 years. This lake is like a sanctuary…

February 2014: Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition

One of my sisters volunteered at the Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition organization during the month of February.

Why is it so easy for someone to tell others “I have a cold” or “I broke my foot.” These statements about not being “well” are thrown around with no care in the world. Yet, when someone needs help with addiction or depression, it is not looked at as a sickness. There are more people…
