March for Babies

April 21, 2010

When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $1.8 billion to benefit all babies.

Join the March of Dimes on Saturday, April 24 at 9AM in supporting a healthier future for our children. The March for Babies walk consists of a 6 mile route beginning at the State Capitol. This would be a great activity to participate in as a family and each member can choose their own fundraising goal! Set a goal either individually or together and help make a difference for Sacramento families.

The State Capitol is located at 1301 10th Street and for more information click here or call 916.922.1913.

We’ll see you there!

There are plenty of ways to “go green” and one of the simplest is making small changes to the way you maintain your home. Not only is cleaning with all natural ingredients safer, but it is cheaper AND good for the environment. Both May and I recently attended a green cleaning workshop at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op and found it extremely interesting. We came away with lots of green cleaning ideas, helpful hints, product suggestions and plenty of recipes.

ArtBeast is offering a Natural Spring Cleaning Workshop on Friday, April 23rd from 6:30-8PM. This workshop will provide knowledge of some of the simplest and cheapest ways to clean your home naturally, without harsh chemicals and toxins. Participants will learn about common ingredients, get to practice and make some cleaning products, and leave with recipes and samples. Recipes and samples will include: carpet freshener, soft scrub, wood polish/cleaner, and all purpose cleaner. The cost of the workshop is $11 and to register click here.
