Join the Cartoon Network 5th annual Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign

Just in time for children to go back to school, Cartoon Network is announcing the details of its 5th annual Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign.


Created in 2010 to provide elementary school-aged children with necessary tools to speak out against bullying, the campaign this year has a new and special goal: to collect ONE MILLION online pledges from parents, children, government officials, celebrities and educators vowing to say something if they witness someone being bullied.



Of all the research Cartoon Network has conducted over the years, one of the most heartbreaking revelations they discovered was how deeply children are affected when they witness a friend being bullied and they don’t do anything about it. By rallying one million pledges, Cartoon Network is setting up a giant support system to prove to kids that they are not alone. The campaign, according to creator Alice Cahn, Cartoon Network’s VP of Social Responsibility, is to give kids the evidence and the tools needed to empower them to say “I Speak Up.”

It’s really simple to participate: Take a homemade video of you and/or your child or group saying “I Speak Up” and post it on the Cartoon Network website www.speakupstopbullying.com. By doing this, you’re promising to do your part to speak out against bullying. Valuable tips on how to deal with bullying can also be found on the site and I encourage you to check these out.

We're making a video and I hope you will share this “ask” with your friends and their families? How great would it be for everyone to say “I Speak Up” and help put an end to bullying?

Here’s to a great new school year. Thanks for your help!

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
