Tropical Smoothie Cafe Unveils #25Days of Giving to Help Benefit Charities in (Y)Our Neighborhood #GivingTuesday

Temperatures may be dropping but, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is embracing the warm spirit of doing good for others. The leading fast-casual concept, known for its better-for-you food and smoothies with a tropical twist, is launching a 25 Days of Giving social campaign beginning December 1st in an effort to raise funds, awareness and recognition for a long standing partner of the brand, Camp Sunshine. 
For the first 25 days of December, the campaign will not only feature Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses as well as their families, but it will also applaud and recognize many other community-based non-profits. 
Kicking off on #GivingTuesday, the globally recognized day of giving back, Tropical Smoothie Cafe will leverage social media to feature a different non-profit, celebrity or volunteer daily who help to make a difference in their local communities. The campaign will also include ideas for how to volunteer.

Tropical Smoothie has donated over $1,000,000 dollars to Camp Sunshine and they are sharing the wealth with other charities including one of our fave local charities, THEA Foundation

One million dollars will definitely help a lot of kids!  However, we often wonder what about our neighborhood.  We never see donations like that?  Tropical Smoothie is partnering with THEA Foundation and I know a lot of teachers and students who will be extremely grateful.

THEA Foundation is a labor of love founded by Paul and Linda Leopoulos shortly after the untimely passing of their daughter, Thea, in a tragic car accident.  Their generosity has helped several kids, students and teachers foster a love of the arts.  Whether it's spoken word or donations from the Thea's Art Closet or the annual Thea Paves the Way sidewalk chalk event on the front lawn of the Clinton Presidential Library, THEA Foundation gives and encourages others to do likewise.

For the entire month of December, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is collecting $.25 donations in-store to benefit Camp Sunshine, THEA Foundation and other charities.  

25 days...

25 days that will change a lot of lives.

Help us spread the word by visiting any of the 450 Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations, visit www.TropicalSmoothieCafe.com and follow #GivingTuesday or #25Days.  

Let's do good... TOGETHER!

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.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

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…
