International Asperger Syndrome Day

Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw a negative number or a derivative? How your brain tried to understand what it was about, to find a use for something so strange, so “useless” and difficult to understand?

I tend to think that this is how a person with Asperger Syndrome feels like every time a new social interaction come across. Read more

BOOKS TO EXPLAIN THE REFUGEE CRISIS TO CHILDREN

I know that Christmas is here and in this side of the world,  Christmas is a time for children, a time for magic and presents. But it is also a time for family, a time to share, to care for others and my heart cannot stand any more what is going on out there.

I feel the need to explain my sons what is happening, but they are only little children and I have to admit that I do not know how and, the most important issue, where to put the limits.

So today, I bring a bunch of books that can help me, and you, to introduce this horrendous crisis to little children. Because through education and information we can help our children to build a better tomorrow for them and for the children to come.

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS FOR LITTLE STARS

If there is something that we want to teach our children is that there are other realities out there: children not so lucky or happy as they are. And we want to show them that helping is nice and even fun sometimes.

What if we told you that with a little craft you can make happy a child, or more,  in Christmas Eve?

MORE SUPERSHADOWS – Jason Ratliff

We introduced you Jason Ratliff and his Supershadow art some time ago. We loved the idea of children meeting their inner Superhero in their own shadows. Magic!

Now Jason Ratliff is launching a second series of SuperShadows with a little twist. The artwork will hang at a children’s medical center and he wants to transmite little ones the idea that the impossible is possible.

On top of that, he will donate 50% of the proceeds to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Ft. Worth, TX during the first 48 hours of the series launch, starting today at noon.

HAPPY MAN – Until it will be stopped, we will continue

There are beautiful projects that are born after sad, tough and complicated moments. HAPPY MAN – #1motivomilrazones (1 motive, 1000 reasons) is one of them.

Mateo is the  1 motive. A little warrior that with only 1 month was diagnosed with leukemia, the most typical type of children cancer.

The 1000 reasons, sadly many more, are the approximately number of little superheroes that are diagnosed with the disease every year in Spain.

#1motivomilrazones is a charity project that supports the research and the fight against leukemia, through the best way their founders know: their story, strength and the memories of their HAPPY MAN.

SLEEPY SNOOGUS: Empowering Cambodian Mothers

I am a lucky person.

My parents worked hard to give me an education. Thanks to that I was able to find  a good job, travel the world and start my family. I would not be what I am without their effort.

Now that I am a mum too, nothing is more important for me that their wellbeing and education and I think that I share that with all the parents around the world.

CAMBODIAN KNITS is a Cambodian company that produces hand-knitted and crocheted woolen toys and sell them worldwide. It could seem one of many, but what makes a difference is their support and involvement with their employees. They really try to make this world a better place to live.
