Patriotic Decorations

We’re gearing up for Memorial Day Weekend with this month’s FriDIY craft! Usually on this holiday, many families are outside if the weather is nice. They’re barbequing, enjoying a nice meal, playing outside and relaxing. If you’ll be enjoying some backyard festivities this weekend, why not decorate your outdoor accessories with some red, white and blue? We decided to turn our safety friend, the KidAlert & Pup V.W.B. into a patriotic pal!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  2. Take the white bandana, roll it up and tie it around on the waist of your safety signal.
  3. Wrap the blue bandana around the neck of the pup.
  4. Remove the flag that comes with this product from the hand of the KidAlert and insert the pinwheel flag.

Selfless Friendship

selfless friendship

Nothing can destroy the power of true friendship and two first graders prove just how powerful it can be during a time of devastation and heartbreak. On February 21, 2015 in Normandy, Missouri, a massive fire left dozens of families displaced, including seven-year-old Ryan Branson and his family.

His best friend Kollin Clark was deeply saddened by the incident and wanted to find a way to help. He asked his mom to help him create a video to reach the users of Facebook and ask them to donate money to Ryan’s family. Within five days over $8,000 was donated to the Go-Fund-Me page that Kollin and his mom created.

This Thoughtful Thursday, we admire the friendship of Kollin and Ryan. The act of kindness that Kollin did shows how selfless and genuine real friends can be.
