    Start your own “Walking School Bus”

    A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. If that sounds simple, it is, and that’s part of the beauty of the walking school bus. It can be as informal as two families taking turns walking their children to school to as structured as a route with meeting points, a timetable and a regularly rotated schedule of trained volunteers.

    Be, Live, Buy Different – Make a Difference
    A national campaign from World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Center for a New American Dream (New Dream). The goal is to help young people learn how they can make a difference by buying differently. For example, did you know that if just one out of every ten middle and high school students each bought just one recycled notebook this year, they would save over 60,000 trees, conserve 25.5 million gallons of water, and stop 5,250,000 pounds of global warming gases from being released? A consumer consciousness and advocay program.

    This is definitely a great versatile sweater from the
    collection of Ralph Lauren cotton sweaters for men. Though these sweaters are a bit pricey they are also well made with quality craftsmanship and will last a
    lifetime. Angelina Jolie dons black silk blouse from Salvatore Ferragamo Fall Winter 2010, shawl collar and black silk pants.
