January 11 is Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Wednesday, by act of Congress, is Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the U.S., and faith based organizations are calling upon Americans to become more aware of the millions who are victimized by trafficking – and more involved in finding ways to stop it.

What Is Alzheimers Disease

I just received a follow from these guys on Twitter and could not help but post their information.  My father was a victim of this horrible disease and past away a few years ago.  If you have any one you know that is being affected by this please forward this information to them.  They are a great support as well as posting up to date information on any new medications that could help.

“Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimer’s disease (AD), is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior.”

Women At Risk- A NAPERVILLE JEWELRY STORE “TRULY” FOR WOMEN and CHILDREN

Last night I stumbled upon this store while strolling down the street with my Wife, her mother, and friend.  Automatically we were drawn the store front with a description of “helping women.” As we went inside we went inside we were amazed to see the most beautiful jewelry, AND AT AMAZING PRICES!!  The reason??  To help women and children in other countries who are being humiliated by many abuses..Trafficking, prostitution,etc.  Recently, I am noticing more and more people wanting to make a difference by providing a product and selling with a selfless purpose.  Why wouldn’t you want to contribute!?!?!   In fact, My wife has already found her place to buy most of her Christmas gifts!  The link is below along with the address of the store located in Naperville, IL

4 E Jefferson Ave Naperville, IL 60540
