The annual Pier 1 greeting card contest, in which a child’s winning design is turned into an official UNICEF greeting card, sold exclusively at Pier 1 Imports stores across the country during the 2009 holiday season, ended on March 6th. The entries poured in, and we’re happy to announce that this year there’ll be a “People’s Choice Award”!
Visitors to the Pier 1 website can vote on their favorite design from April 1st through the 15th. The “People’s Choice” winner will receive $500 worth of art supplies.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of this, as well as all UNICEF cards sold at Pier 1, go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help in its mission to decrease the number of preventable childhood deaths from 25,000 each day to zero.
Vote today, and good luck to all of those who entered!
I’m a firm believer in comfort food. It does wonders for the soul and imparts a sense of contentment. My favorite comfort foods are definitely milk and cookies. For many of us these are the quintessential pair of comfort foods, the items sure to cure whatever ails us. For others, these items are beyond comfort and convenience

As I stare at my empty glass of water, I can’t help but realize that I am still thirsty but feeling too busy to do anything about it. I know that drinking lots of water is very healthy, and that it will help curb my appetite so I decide to finally take a break and get another glass. Up from my chair I go and over to the filtered water dispenser down the hallway and avail myself of another glass.
So I thought I knew what the Tap Project was all about. I could barely swallow my excitement this past weekend as I prepared to attend my first Tap Project Water Walk in N.Y.C.
A new Facebook application–Tap Your Friends–is spreading the message of the Tap Project throughout the Facebook community. The app is meant to demonstrate water’s power to both take and save lives depending on its quality.
You can use the application to send clean or dirty glasses of water to your friends. Tap Your Friends allows users to accumulate points for how much clean water they’ve sent out.
The more points a user gets, the better their status. All users start out as an Empty Glass and must give out 50 glasses of clean water to achieve the status of Rain Maker.

I get this great rush of excitement giving to other people, the same as when I am performing a show. I think my friends that join me at Broadway Kids Care feel the same way as I do. My motto is you’re never too young to make a difference in someone else’s life! This is also what Kelly Gonda, the founder of BKC had in mind when she formed Broadway Kids Care, an organization where Broadway kids get together to give back to the community and make a difference.
