Clicking for a Change


The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they’re showing their support for Girls For A Change.

I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I love supporting great causes and you can also with just a few simple steps!  “Girls For A Change (GFC) is a national organization that empowers girls to create social change. They invite young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues girls face in their own neighborhoods. GFC empowers girls for personal and social transformation. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary as change and realize their full potential.


I had a great mentor during my teen years that encouraged me to be my best, stand up for what I believed in and make a change. She made a huge difference in my life and helped me realize that I could accomplish everything I set my mind to and that college was not out of my reach.  I think every young girl/woman needs someone like that in their life, especially in our current times.


Yahoo! Will donate $10 to Girls For A Change (GFC) for each person who clicks here to make Yahoo their homepage by July 1. That’s it! Just follow the steps by clicking here and we can help raise up to $10,000 for a great cause!

San Diego Botanical Gardens- Free Admission First Tuesday of the Month


Credit: San Diego Botanical Garden

Can you believe that June will be coming to an end in just two days? It seems that this month just flew on by!  One of the best things about a new month is that every First Tuesday of the month there are quite a few museums and gardens that offer free admission to the general public.

The San Diego Botanical Gardens(formerly known as the Encinitas Gardens) is a place I have been meaning to visit for quite some time now and I get to do it for free! Yay for Free and Fun things to do!  The San Diego Botanical Gardens is a FANTASTIC place for kiddos from what I have heard from friends. There is a “Seeds of Wonder” Children’s Garden that  has a digging area, play shovels, dinosaur toys, a lifesize playhouse and a train set which the kiddos are allowed to play with. There is also Hamilton  Children’s Garden area that is perfect for the older kids with many interactive areas includes a treehouse, incredible edible section and a butterfly exhibit plus much much more. I can’t wait to check out this amazing place!!!

I will have a more in depth review in the weeks to come but for now let’s take advantage of Free Admission this upcoming Tuesday and explore!
