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.

We rely on you when we need a shoulder to cry on, you celebrate our accomplishments and you always give the best advice. Today, we thank you for being incredible and selfless. Thank you for being a mom.

The Friday before Mother’s Day every year marks National Provider Appreciation Day. This special day recognizes educators and child care providers for their commitment, dedication and compassion to our kids.
We want to thank all of the care providers for molding the young minds of the world and opening your heart to teach and interact with children. Your hard work and passion to impact kids doesn’t go unnoticed, we commend you for your effort and drive each and every day.
Here are a few ways to celebrate and give back to care providers and teachers on this day:
Ask your little ones to create a card for the staff of their daycare/school
You and your little ones can create a craft to bring as a present to their favorite teacher
Bring a gift basket full of school or daycare supplies for the classroom
In honor of National Provider Appreciation Day, one person will win two 50’s Diners – one for themselves and one to give to a care provider of their choice – for this week’s #FanFriday giveaway!
