Happy Earth Day!

Or take this Earth Day quiz... and $2 will be donated toward the purchase of solar flashlights for people living in camps in Haiti.

And... se the Disney nature movie "Oceans" during opening week, and Disney nature will make a donation in your honor to save the coral reefs.

Finally, watch The Oprah Winfrey Show today as Oprah talks to the filmmakers of the 2009 Oscar-winning documentary, The Cove.

I Love Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Ever since reading Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, I thought we should be friends.
Her Thought Bubble video below is definitely worth watching and sharing.

Born to be Good, bright yellow cover!


I love the animation and music from this 2 minute video highlighting Fonkoze's work to help rebuild Haiti.
