GIVEAWAY: MedWish Celebrates 20 Years at Band Aid Bash

Last November I had the chance to spend the morning at MedWish for a Blogger Volunteer Day.  Although it meant waking up before 6am on a Saturday, getting to see the effects of MedWish’s unique mission was more than worth it. In Northeast Ohio, we are very lucky that our hospitals are filled with an abundance of medical supplies. Unfortunately, there are…

Giveaway: Win 2 tickets to Market at the Foodbank

Over the last year, I’ve really enjoyed getting involved with the Cleveland Foodbank’s new volunteer group, YP Pantry. I had volunteered at the Foodbank a few times previously with the Ohio Blogging Association.

Animal Attractions at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Each year when October rolls around, I marvel at the number of birthdays that fall during the month.  And then I do a little math, count back 9 months, and it all makes sense to what people were doing a lot of the previous February. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo understands that couples like…
