You already know that a trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland is a child’s dream come true. But these destinations are also heaven on Earth for all members of a family. Every aspect of Disney is engineered for optimum family unity and happiness.
If you happen to be a blogger, vlogger, or social media parent, an invitation to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration combines an unbelievably awesome family vacation with top notch social media learning, work-life inspiration, as well as an exclusive view into what Disney’s Imagineers are cooking up throughout the world. (Be sure to sign up here if you are interested in attending a Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-the-Road event this summer, they are happening in New York, San Francisco, DC and Seattle.)
In the coming weeks I will be posting Disney travel tips to help with planning your own visits and more cool resources to help you grab handfuls of the pixie dust that Disney has in store for us. But in the meantime, here is a video I made that I hope conveys the magic of Walt Disney World and the joy my family and I experienced on our trip.
Disclosure: As an attendee of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I received perks, parties and a very reduced rate for the conference portion of my family’s stay. I am not affiliated with Disney or any entities mentioned in this video, nor am I monetarily compensated in any way.
Fruit2O is a flavored water brand that contains no sugar, no calories, no carbs, is low in sodium (no sport drink bloat!) and infuses the water with natural fruit flavor. I tried all the flavors of the water, and I also checked out Fruit2O’s Dial it Back movement featuring their new Facebook app.
The Dial It Back app humorously assess your Facebook activity to determine whether you need to back away from your keyboard and smart phone a bit this summer to enjoy more IRL fun. There are also daily prizes for Dial It Back app users! So try the Dial It Back app yourself, and watch the video below for more info, as well as my own Dial It Back assessment.
Disclosure: I received review samples and compensation for producing this video. All opinions are my own.
The easiest volunteering you will do all year: Enter a code found on groceries you already purchase and a meal will be donated to a hungry child in America.
Almost 17 million children in the United States don’t get enough food.
That’s one in five kids who, when they go to their mom or dad and say “I’m hungry”, their parent may not be able to provide anything for them.
There are kids in this country who do not know where their next meal is coming from.
And while lucky parents like you and me dread grocery shopping (mainly because of the hassle), other parents simply don’t have a cent to spend at the store.
We can help hungry families feed their children! All we have to do is look for the red pushpin on specially marked packages of ConAgra Foods brands when we hit the grocery store. After purchasing these foods simply locate the eight-digit code found on the package and enter the code at www.facebook.com/ChildHungerEndsHere, www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com, or the handy wideget on the right hand side of my blog.
Here’s how that simple shopping and typing will help feed the hungry in our country: For every code entered by 8/31/13, ConAgra Foods will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The goal is the donation of 3 million meals by the summer’s end!
Other easy-peasy ways you can contribute to the alleviation of child hunger:
The 2013 Child Hunger Ends Here campaign is supported by musical artists lending their voices to spread awareness for child hunger, Voices for Hope. You can download songs (some are free!) by Cody Simpson, Amber Riley, Tori Kelly and more!
Sometimes I get the guilts as a busy mom that I’m not out there in the field volunteering for non-profits, as I used to do as a single person. So while I can’t serve a meal at the soup kitchen very often, I *can* totally enter in that code on the jar of Peter Pan peanut butter.
As the summer season craziness begins (camps! swim team! vacations! madness!), let’s all count our many blessings and do a little bit of free, armchair/laptop volunteerism for hungry kids.
