There are many opportunities in life for us to help our families, friends, and community at large. Whether we help by providing physical labor, moral support or by sharing our resources, these are positive steps to help in times of disaster and periods of hardship. I live in the northeast and I have been watching the continued reports of the devastating effects of hurricane Sandy and the continued challenges of not having shelter, electric, or other resources which are necessary for living a normal life. It is heart wrenching to see and hear stories about these hard hit areas. These areas are facing years of recovery.
On these occasions I continually thank God for all of my blessings especially being surrounded and supported by a loving family and having a home. I feel we all need to have compassion for our neighbors and try to help whenever we can.
If you have read some of my previous blogs, you know that I have a passion for helping people learn how to deal with stress and live healthier and helping our children also be healthier and happier. I have always had an interest in working with children and part of my career has been working in the public school system as a school nurse for 22 years. Through the years I witnessed the impact stress was having on our younger generations and I retired to help educate the community about stress management. By helping adults realize the effects of stress in their health and lives, and helping them change their own attitudes and behavior, they become valuable role models for our future generations. I have written a book with suggestions and observations based on my years as a part of the educational system. Changing Our Legacy of Stress: Helping Future Generations provides some insights into building relationship with children and our communities.
I have decided to release this book as a eBook which can be purchased here on my website for downloading after paying through PayPal. I am charging $10 per copy and $1 from each sale will be donated to the Red Cross for disaster relief. I know this type of disaster puts a strain on this valuable organization’s resources and they are a continual presence in all areas when emergencies occur and they can always use our help. I encourage everyone to support the Red Cross with a donation! As we approach the holiday season I would like to reach out and give them this much needed support. I would like to invite everyone who is interested in learning how to help our children and our communities, to Please support my efforts to raise $100,000 to donate to the Red Cross by Christmas.

Oh by the way, did I mention that by focusing on helping other people there are also personal benefits to your health? It has been proven that your body produces stress reducing hormones related to the good feelings and satisfaction resulting from helping others and opening up your heart to share your love with others.
