Free Scary Face Pancake at IHOP 10/28

Boo, pout pout I wish we had IHOP near me!!

On Friday, October 28, kids 12 and under can get a FREE Scary Face Pancake at IHOP from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

As part of the Halloween tradition, IHOP’s popular Funny Face Pancake will turn scary by way of a “design-your-own” Scary Face Pancake for children. Called the Count Spatula Scary Face Pancake, this will be a large buttermilk pancake with a creamy topping mouth, and a bright red strawberry nose, served together with a couple of mini OREO® cookies and some candy corn on the side using which kids will be able to create their own version of a Halloween hotcake. Like all other items on the IHOP Kids menu, is will have less than 600 calories. You can order the pancake any time in October, but it’s FREE on 10/28!

Cancer doesn’t have boundaries. No social graces.

Cancer is ugly. I hate it. I shared Jamie’s story with you earlier in the week and now I’m going to share Matt B’s story. You see, in this line of work I communicate with people so often on email. Once in a while on the phone but mostly email. I’ve worked with many of the PR reps I know multiple times since this journey of mine began, and sometimes, personal information sneeks into our conversations. Its kind of inevitable, don’t you think? Anyway, several weeks ago, a very nice woman named Dre shared with me her brother’s fight against cancer, and I want to share his story with  you- because maybe you can help- or maybe his story will inspire you in some way.  He’s had a pretty amazing life, filled with challenges, but his strength and will to live are awesome.   When I read his story, their family story, I was sobbing.  Literally sobbing while reading. 

Please visit, and read Matt’s story.  Follow his Facebook page, and support Matt on this uphill battle he’s fighting.  Support his family and friends as they support Matt.  Donate if you are able to support his ever-increasing medical costs.  Share his page.  Share his story.  Someone you know or I know may be able to help in some way- but they can’t help if they aren’t aware.   So please, please share. 

Matt, Dre and their family have been in my prayers, and will continue to be.  I hope they can find their way into yours.

Nintendo is encouraging children across the country to come up with their own super abilities

Nintendo is encouraging children across the country to come up with their own super abilities, much the way that Kirby – the main character in Kirby’s Return to Dreamland – might have.

Kirby, the popular pink puffball, is also striving to help children in hospitals through Nintendo’s Starlight Foundation.

Kids who visit http://kirby.nintendo.com/superability will be invited to create drawings and descriptions of their dream Super Abilities, taking inspiration from Kirby’s Super Abilities in the new Kirby’s Return to Dream Land game for the Wii system. Their imaginative creations can be submitted to Nintendo and may be featured as part of a project to aid Starlight Children’s Foundation. [click to continue…]
