A Glove of Their Own Book Review & Giveaway- GREAT CAUSE!!! (Second Round)


Back by popular demand and wonderful reason for more exposure...

A Glove of Their Own is a children's book, that goes far beyond the pages of the book itself. The story is timeless and tells about one of those neighborhood ballgames where the bases are made of sticks and what few gloves are had get shared between players. And then there's the man who comes in with a special gift for the children that reminds them about the importance of giving and having compassion in your heart for those in need.

A Glove of Their Own is also a movement. So many youth out there are underprivileged and don't enjoy city organizations like Little League or Pee Wee League. We encourage these youths to stay off the streets, become educated and enjoy clean fun, but they need help to do so. By showing these children that people care, it inspires them to do good with their life and in turn, pay forward the goodness that was bestowed on them.

There are many organizations right now currently raising money, working with athletes (athlebrities) and companies to help gain funds for sports programs or equipment in areas where it is not available. I urge you to donate or get behind these programs as they are FANTASTIC and as a parent, it is important for me to back things that keep kids doing what kids SHOULD be doing without having to worry about adult issues like the economy and hardships.

  1. I have a friend who was being mistreated in a nursing home. I have become her advocate of sorts and have fought to get things changed for her. I am happy to say that her condition has greatly improved. I continue to work on her behalf to ensure that the rest of her days are as good as they can be.

  3. I've "adopted' our school custodian who had to retire due to health reasons. She's rasing two disabled granddaughters with no help from her own daughter.

    When my Mom passed away she left us a poem that basically said..when you are missing me, do something good for someone else. On every occasion that I would honor my Mom, I do something for Miss Nina Faye.

  5. My husband's 22-yr. old niece just had a baby, but she doesn't have the means to provide for him just yet, so we always give her everything we don't need from our now-toddler. We've been very generous, but I wish we could do even more. She sure does have a sweet little guy.
