Blood Donation Education: Especially Essential in a Dengue-Inflicted Country

April 14, 2013


A couple of weeks ago, one of my friends in Manila, Philippines needed blood donors for a sick relative. Today, another friend needed blood donors for a friend inflicted with Dengue.

Do you know about the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals? Have you ever heard anyone you know talk about them? I had no idea that they existed before I decided to play a more active role in helping improve our world. In 2000, world leaders joined the U.N. Millennium Summit at the U.N. headquarters in […]

Click here to watch a few really short films via Global Citizen that have powerful messages about different areas we can focus on to end poverty, and how we all can come together as citizens of the world to do so. Make sure to watch all of the films (they play one after the other). These are […]

What Women Want – Really

October 2, 2012


I remember that movie where the guy can hear what women were thinking, and it just drove him crazy. I think that in reality, it would be great if women’s voices could be heard by both men and women, young or old, wherever in the world they may be. It will probably drive everyone crazy, too, […]

September 19, 2012


As a woman, I was very interested to participate in a Twitter Q&A (#HTSchat) with @RoomtoRead and @Intelinvolved, set-up by @Half, about girls’ education. I know that in general, there is a need for more global emphasis on the importance of education. There is definitely a lack of resources, especially in towns that don’t have access to any […]

When I Learned to Read – A Poem

September 14, 2012


I met mermaids, dragons, hobbits, and knights. I became a princess, a hunter, a vampire, a mad hatter. I saw kingdoms, forests, wonderland, and new worlds. I fought a big bad wolf and a witch with a gingerbread house. When I learned to read, I looked forward to everything I could achieve. When I learned […]

September 7, 2012


How about donating some of your books to your local library, a school, or an orphanage to celebrate and support International Literacy Day? Or spend time reading with your kids? You can also start a Little Free Library in your neighborhood, wherever you are! You can either order or build your Little Free Library and fill […]

For those who, like myself, are big fans of DIY furniture, we have another reason to celebrate. I just found out today through @unicefusa on Twitter that IKEA has been partners with UNICEF for about 10 years already. IKEA promotes children’s rights, fights child labor, and follows standards that ensure that the products they sell […]

Spotlight: Pencils of Promise

August 30, 2012


By following @GLBLCTZN and @UNICEFUSA on Twitter, I discovered an organization I haven’t heard of before: Pencils of Promise. It’s an organization that promotes children’s rights to education by building schools in places all over the world that need them the most. The materials are locally (recipient) purchased, and local residents help out by donating […]
