The Soup Was On for SOUP! 2010

Guest Blogger Suzanne attended this year’s SOUP!

Suzanne also writes at her blog, Crunchy Green Mom.

One of my favorite parts of blogging is the social aspect of it. I get to meet other women from many facets of society that I might never have met before. Women who work from home or work in high rises downtown. Mothers that stay home and work with their kids, or Mothers who work outside the home and might not get to see their kids all that much.

Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon 2009

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Need a unique way to blog about the holiday? Participate in the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition’s Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon 2009!

This is a FREE, fun, and easy way to utilize social media and celebrate Thanksgiving by promoting health for kids.

We often don’t think about our health until something is “wrong.” The Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC) wants to change that. Inspired by the spirit of the season, CCIC wants you to join us in giving thanks for healthy kids!

CCIC works to protect children’s health by ensuring that kids are vaccinated at the appropriate ages to prevent common childhood diseases. Our mission is the same as yours: Keep kids healthy!

In celebration of Thanksgiving, CCIC will be using social media (YouTube, Facebook and Twitter) to share parent’s gratitude for healthy kids. Parents, grandparents and mommies-to-be are encouraged to submit comments, photos, videos and blog online explaining why they are grateful for a healthy child. For full details on the Thank-A-Thon visit

From these submissions, CCIC will spread gratitude for healthy kids all Thanksgiving weekend long by tweeting submission on Twitter, creating a video for YouTube and updating the Facebook Fan Page.
