Your Cause Marketing Made Me Hate Poor People

The four of us are in a taxi cab in San Francisco when the cabbie starts telling us about his smart granddaughter. She is seven and doesn’t like to eat breakfast. When he told her that children in Africa didn’t have any food she said, “So.” Just like that, she said, “so?” and nothing else. Because starving children in Africa mean nothing to a seven year old girl living multigenerationally in San Francisco. Last night I posted a quick video where I opened up a new ASUS Lamborghini computer. Within seconds …

I’m Embarking on a Campaign of Listening

  This week I had a phone call with Procter and Gamble (P&G) and they gave me a brief overview of their Thank You Mom campaign as it relates to the Special Olympics this summer in Athens.

I Have the Best Job in the World

When people ask me what I do for a living I never really know what to say. I’m a mom blogger, I have a YouTube channel (you’ve subscribed, right?) and I work for DECA making shows for Momversation.

So we spent a day interviewing here, and then they came back to do the second half and there was a surprise for me. Watch …

I’m Not Giving Any More

The neighborhood kids love to have bake sales. They love to raise money for Haiti, for Japan and for Africa. We’re in an affluent suburb, but let’s face it, this is Los Angeles. Los Angeles is home of the Bloods and the Crips. Los Angeles is home of one of the worst performing school districts in the country. California is 47th (of 50) in spending for students. We have a problem with the homeless, and the homeless people aren’t the problem, the problem is that we don’t care of the …

I’ll Never Do This Again, So Don’t Bother Asking

Remember when I asked y’all to wish me a Happy Birthday by supporting your own communities? Well, Toyota seemed to be listening, like actively listening, and they had this wacky day where they were setting records in Prius’ (Pre-eye?) and they tried to add can stacking. I’m told that they brought a bunch of cans to a local food pantry. I’d like to know how many cans my readers can get into a Prius and deliver to a food pantry. I’d provide the Prius (Stepmom I mean I’d borrow yours). …
