Having an Advancing Parenting bumper sticker on your car is so interesting! At stoplights you can watch drivers read the message and then desperately search for their phone so they can take a picture of it before the light turns green. This happens almost every time I drive my car! Presumably the photos are being shared on social media. If there’s a passenger or passengers someone will read it and comment, then everyone in the car reads it and conversations start up. It’s wonderful to see people discussing parenting! I’ve never seen people take pictures of bumper stickers before. It’s really a phenomenon! I think it’s because there’s a very real need for quality parenting information and people are pleased to see it displayed in this public way. Advancing Parenting is a Camarillo, CA nonprofit. Visit www.advancingparenting.org. Please share!
http://gofund.me/fbce744b Please read and share... God Bless! My health is going downhill. The worst part is kidney failure. I'm 55 yrs old with numerous medical conditions, and I have an upcoming appointment on the 18th with my family doctor to go over my meds and Urinalysis report. I also have an appointment coming up with the Renal Doctor in Huntsville. The worst is no vehicle. My car that I gave $300 for has finally died and my son is doing a gofundme page (which you can find on my page) to try to help me get some money up for a car, not beautiful or new, something to get me from A to B. I draw disability which is only $800 per month and is hard to do anything with after paying rent, elec etc. To be honest, I'm scared. I normally have appointments about 3 to 4 times a month if not more. I've had Aorta Femoral Bypass and now it's kinked and blocking blood flow. I'm a type 2 diabetic on insulin, I've got hernias from my surgery that need repaired asap because it's coming out my belly button which is not good and now kidney failure. I'm asking my friends on Facebook if you can donate just a dollar or whatever you can to help me raise somewhat to my goal. I live 45 minutes to ALL my doctors in Huntsville Al, so this is why I need help. I'm not the begging type, but desperate. Thank you all for reading this and may the good Lord bless you!
