Take a Stand

"Sunkist is calling all kids, 7 to 12 years of age, across America to "Take a Stand" for their favorite charity. It's a rewarding way to squeeze some fun into summer and give back to the community. " They are giving away 12,000 lemonade stands!

If you are ever wondering how I find out about all this stuff well..... Thanks to my friend Stacy who suggest last summer I sign up for my weekly GoCityKids email, I get the low down of all the happenings in the city.
Even if you don't have kids - sign up! Every week it will email events going on in your city. On Thursday nights we get an email and then plan our weekend.
GoCityKids -click hereand how could I forget to mention all the wonderful Trader Joe's advice! really it is amazing. I am putting this on my sidebar so anyone can reference the cheat sheet shopping list any day.
Laurie & Lisa P. will be the lucky winners of the 11.5 yards for taking the time to type that list. I do have three Pink Trader Joe's chocolate bars going to 3 different honorable mentions (one being my father in law who took the time to comment!) see it pays to comment.

What a great idea! We have spent all day planning our summer. We had a couple of giving back ideas, but this one is really great. We also love go city kids.

Everytime I see something pink now I think of you. Vintage handkerchiefs, washing-up gloves, spatulas. The world is turning pink!

They deliver to Canada!!! My girls are going to be thrilled. We visitted the Calgary Humane Society this week, and they were very touched. I put that down as their charity.

YAHOO for the ribbon! I am thrilled, thanks!
I am totally bummed that we can't sign up for that amazing newsletter for my littles. I think that is fantastic that you DO so much in your city!

Elisa said...

Krisit, I have thought of you often over the last few days. Wondering how in the world you survived having Sally with Caroline so young. And yet, you keep on top of everything new and exciting going on!

Matt & Heidi Maxfield said...

Kristi- I found your blog through a friend and am amazed at your attacking the blogosphere with such style! I love your posts. I'd also love to pick your brain so I can improve my blog. Please send me your email address to heidiannmaxfield@yahoo.com if you're willing to answer a few questions! Thanks.

Thanks. This will help me actually do a lemonade stand and satisfy my kid's asking about doing one everytime it's hot outside :)---such a great way to give to others as a kid too.

I am signed up for SLC and really excited about this summer's activites! Thank you for all of your fabulous ideas! I get so many great ones from your blog! And for JILL, there is one for UTAH! It's for SLC but it encompasses the surrounding areas!
