“Kohl’s Cares for Kids” Program Benefits SBS Throughout the US

6 Feb

Yesterday I blogged a post about Kohl’s program in Wisconsin that offers to sell Dr. Seuss books and toys for $5 each. Kohl’s then donates 100% of the net profits to children’s health and education initiatives, including SBS.

Well, happy day dear readers, because this Kohl’s program is countrywide! You can even participate on-line.

Click here to visit their website, where you can learn more about their program, see the toys currently being offered, learn about their hospital partnerships, read about associates and volunteers, find out about other fund raising efforts, and locate a Kohl’s near you.

I tried the Store Locator search engine and it didn’t work, so if it fails on you, too, not to worry. Click “About Kohl’s” in the upper left-hand corner, then click “Our Locations” and you will find a tidy list of all the states in which Kohl’s 930 stores are located. Click on the state and you will be whisked away to a page where you can use a pull down menu to see all the cities in that state where a Kohl’s is located. Select your city and the next page will provide you with (1) address and phone, (2) hours of operation, (3) a link to driving directions, and (4) today advertisements! The page will also list the next closest stores by driving distance. Very impressive.

Bendithion and happy shopping!

‘Kohl’s Cares for Kids’ Program Benefits SBS Prevention in Wisconsin

5 Feb

According to the Wausau Daily Herald, as of today Central Wisconsin Kohl’s stores once again are selling books and plush toys to support the Kohl’s Cares For Kids initiative. The current line includes books by Dr. Seuss, along with matching toys. All items sell for $5 each. Kohl’s donates 100% of the net profits to children’s health and education initiatives.

Sales of items at the Rib Mountain and Plover Kohl’s stores benefit programs at Aspirus Wausau Hospital aimed at improving safe sleep for babies, preventing shaken baby syndrome and improving child passenger safety and bike helmet use. Since July 2006, more than $74,000 has been raised.

If you live in Central Wisconsin, Rib Mountain or Plover, get thee to a Kohl’s and spend ye money — and be sure to tell them it’s in memory of baby London Marie Sherwood.

UPDATE: For the rest of us, click here to find a Kohl’s near you; yes, we can participate, too!

I’ve just received my first blog award, from my lovely, warm and furry Canadian feline friend Catz. Thanks, Catz!

I dedicate this award to the memory of baby London Marie Sherwood, who most surely has the biggest heart of us all for bringing out the best in the hearts of so many.

Why I Blog About SBS

23 Jan

I received this email response today from a woman who did not understand or appreciate my reply to a comment she left on my blog. I’ll not reply to her by email because she’s patently refused to engage in polite discussion regarding our differences of opinion, but I feel that there are some issues (see the brackets) that, irregardless, need to be addressed.

WOW, for someone who isn’t “pulling any punches with me” you certainly did a good job. Perhaps I may have come off a bit harsh…but the reality of it is people die everyday[7a]…babies, children, adults, geriatrics etc…I have a child myself and would be completely devastated if anything were to happen to her, while I can’t possibly understand what that family must be going through…i CAN certainly imagine.

My post was not in any way, shape, or form directed towards that family…and I’m pretty sure the family isn’t reading your site[1]… because if they were you wouldn’t have had to go digging[2] for facts. That’s my point though isn’t it? That people like you[7d] waste valuable time and energy with concerning yourselves with other peoples affairs[3]. This is one reason if not THE reason why people who want to be informed about current events around the world can’t get any decent coverage from the main stream media[4] because you people[7d] have created such a demand for real life soap operas[7e] that it is now being broadcast by what is supposed to be the NEWS…And don’t even think about responding to me that stories like this are news…because f*** off[7c], no it isn’t…it’s [7a]bloody LIFE…people are born….people die…some have good lives…some have horrible lives[7f] etc..etc.. so on and so forth.

While I still have compassion towards others… and believe it or not I do …I know that I need to worry about my family…not every other family down the street[5][7b]…and PART of taking care of MY FAMILY is knowing what is going on in the world around me so that perhaps I can make the best informed decisions possible[6].

You are sadly mistaken when you ASSUME[7] you know i have “deep wells of hurt and anger”. I’m pissed off, yes….but I’m not hurt. I’m pissed off at the ignorance of people such as yourself[7d] who help create a market for things such as reality tv and celebrities in the news[4] etc…

If you want to care about something…try caring about our economy[6] (assuming you are american)…or the war in Iraq[6] and the potential war with Iran[6]…etc…these things will effect you personally or perhaps are effecting you personally…I dunno…nor do I care[7]…..Just wake up[8]…if you wanna make a difference…posting other peoples tragedy on your own website isn’t doing a damn thing except helping to create further distractions for sheep[7e]. baaaaah![7e]

p.s. no need to reply…as I will not read anymore of your foolishness[7e].

  1. The family is reading my blog and appreciate the manner with which I have dealt with this topic, which she would have known if she’d bothered to read all of the posts. I am in email contact, but I choose not to bother the family during their period of mourning and I allow them to contact me as they see fit.
  2. This implies that the information I have presented on my blog was buried and difficult to find. It has all been a matter of public record and easily accessible. There is no dirt under my fingernails at all.
  3. I am not “concerning myself with other people’s affairs.” I am educating the public about a very real problem: child abuse and one of its more deadly forms, Shaken Baby Syndrome. Although one family’s tragedy was the impetus for my campaign to institute reforms in this area, I continue to monitor what happens to the family because it is important for people to know the consequences of SBS. Of course, if she had read all of my posts or even looked at their titles, this would have become quite self-evident.
  4. I know for a fact that I don’t have that much power and influence. I wish that I did, because I would have already gotten the Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Act of 2007 passed into LAW! Also, I don’t watch TV; in fact, my friends know this and have to call me when there are hurricane and tornado warnings so I can prepare my home. I will confess that I am an addict to classic movies and even new releases from NetFlix, and sometimes friends will convince me to put a TV series in my queue, like the Dresden Files, because I won’t have to watch commercials. Reality TV, soap operas, celebrity news? Nope, not me.
  5. I completely disagree. We need to start worrying about the family next door and the family down the street. Americans (yes, I’m an American, with a capital A) are becoming more and more isolated and insular and this is psychologically unhealthy. The “me and mine only” behavior this woman is espousing is that of a sociometric isolate. Psychologically healthy individuals engage in sociometric interconnectedness, and the ones that spend time having substantial encounters with others are the most successful, happy and healthy.
  6. She makes the mistake here, as she made the mistake previously, that no one who reads my blog cares about what is going on in the world. I read and research a great deal about current events and I have many contacts in all of the military services, various branches of the Federal service, and several CEOs of leading military industrial companies as a result of my 25+ years as a negotiator for the United States Navy. So just because I do not choose to blog about my opinions with respect to current events because they may be flavored by privileged information, never make the assumption that I do not have any. Having held a Top Secret security clearance during the whole of my career, I tend not to share information of this type and I keep my opinions to myself.
  7. I never assume anything. I carefully read what is written and then I used empathy to place myself in the writer’s state of mind. She can deny it all she wants, but based on [a] her callous attitude towards the deaths of other human beings, [b] her desire for isolation, [c] her foul language, [d] her rabid need to fix blame for societal ills on individuals, [e] her resort to childish cliches, and [f] her nihilistic pre-determination that human lives are “good” or “horrible” with no indication that she would willingly lift a finger to change someone’s “horrible” life, that’s not just anger. Someone somewhere treated this woman in a way that destroyed her trust and belief in humanity, and that is Hurt, wicked, cruel and deep. Too bad she is so willing to perpetuate it, just like the abused become abusers.
  8. I’m not Sleeping Beauty, I’m very much awake. I will jest and say that I hope she is just a bad dream.

Just as when you don’t like what’s on TV, turn the channel or turn it off; if you don’t like the way I run my blog or the things I write about, close your browser, go somewhere else, or write your own blog. I’m not flavored to everyone’s taste and you’re welcome to spit me out, but you are not welcome to chew me up first. I don’t bite, but I do talk back.

Eleven Ideas on How to Help Put a Stop to SBS

18 Jan

Here are Holly’s suggestions for getting involved and supporting the Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Act of 2007:

  1. Call every congress member for your state. Please see instructions on what to say!
  2. Have all of your friends call too, personal and myspace. The more the better, even additional calls for each state, but you can only call for your state.
  3. Email Hillary until she signs on. She has a congress website, presidential website, and myspace where you can message her plus comment her asking for her support no matter what state you live in.
  4. Email your congress members, myspace AND website.
  5. Mail letters to your congress members. They will get the point if we keep contacting them. I have typed up letters that you are welcome to use.
  6. Email all local media and ask them to do a story on SBS. If they already did one before, ask them to do it again with the updated information on the new bills that were just presented April 25, 2007. I have a media letter that I have been using as well and it has brought some recent response.
  7. Email and write Oprah, Montell and Dr. Phil. They can bring awareness to MILLIONS within a 1 hours show. If a few thousand are inspired to make phone calls, it will not go un-noticed. Have your friends do this too.
  8. Pass out flyers. I have 2 flyers now and am working on a third. Ask permission to post them on grocery store bulletin boards, mall bulletin boards, church, schools, bus stops, rest rooms, local businesses etc.
  9. Write and email every presidential candidate. I think they are all on myspace. Send them messages and post comments urging them to co-sponsor the bill.
  10. Email us with any new ideas you may have.
  11. Sign all child abuse based petitions.
