This week your donation can go further with Match Day. Match Day is an on-line fundraising event sponsored by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation to generate support for 20 charitable organizations in the Milwaukee region that provide critical need services (e.g. food, shelter) to some of the area’s poorest and most vulnerable. By combining their own resources with others contributed by the Brewers’ Community Foundation, Faye McBeath and many others, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation has assembled a pool in excess of $750,000 that is available for distribution as “match.”
To earn that match, each participating organization is charged to drive their donors and supporters to make on-line contributions to the organization via the website set up for that purpose: www.matchdaymke.org One organization that you can help out is Daystar which helps women affected by domestic violence. Daystar is a small organization with a big and important mission. If you would like to help daystar you can go directly to their dedicated page to make a donation.
My Ballroom dancing partner for the competition I did for charity last fall Sarah Haworth let me know about a great event happening Wednesday March 6th to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project. The event will take place at Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Brookfield. To show support and gratitude to our troops in a day of celebration and respect they will be doing free 40 minute dance lessons the entire day, with a suggested $75 minimum donation to be given to the cause.
All checks should be made directly to WWP.
The event runs all day Wednesday from 7am to 10pm.
Any questions go to fredastairebrookfield.com
You can give back to the individuals who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. For more information on the Wounded Warriors Project click here woundedwarriorproject.org.
Doing an interview promoting her upcoming movie Oz the Great and Powerful Mila Kunis showed why she's the "cool chick" and guys would love to hang out with her besides the fact she's beautiful!
There's a student at Stanford University named Ravi Fernando who can solve a Rubik's Cube WHILE he juggles it.
There's a video making the rounds where he juggles two hacky sacks and a Rubik's Cube at the same time. And every time he catches it in his left hand, he makes a change.
This is pretty ironic: The host of a kids show in Croatia fainted on live TV . . . while she was in the middle of talking about how important OXYGEN is.
--First her eyes rolled back, then she slammed pretty hard into a piece of the set. But she's fine.
If you haven't seen it yet, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi made the coolest half court shot EVER on Thursday night. She shot the ball while simultaneously doing a forward HAND-SPRING.
One of the Harlem Globetrotters happened to be in town the next day, and asked her to show HIM how to do it. And she made the shot AGAIN.
I love that you can find out how to do so many things on youtube...but sometimes the "experts" aren't really experts at all.
Case in point: There's a new one where a young girl shows women how to use a curling iron. And on the first curl . . . she burns off a big chunk of HAIR. Then the next 30 seconds is her sitting there looking HORRIFIED. I feel for her...
