Help A Child With Liver Cancer During Liver Cancer Awareness Month

The month of October is Liver Cancer Awareness Month. Liver cancer can occur in both children and adults, but for a child with liver cancer, they are forced to grow up much more quickly than expected and are often unable to participate in many of the childhood activities that other children are. This October, consider donating a car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.

Get Out And Help Your Community On World Food Day

In 2013, there were an estimated 842 million hungry people on the planet, according to worldfooddayusa.org. The number of people in the world suffering from chronic hunger is roughly one in eight. Hunger has been a world-wide problem for decades, and it still continues, but organizations like the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations hope to eradicate the problem. One such effort was the establishment of World Food Day in 1981. World Food Day, observed on Oct. 16, is an effort to bring individuals, community groups and leaders together in educating others and working on ways to end hunger. Even if you’re not part of a community group that will be doing something special on World Food Day, there are many things you can do on your own or with your family to help strengthen your community and bring more awareness to world hunger.

Get Your Kids Involved During Fruits & Veggies - More Matters Month

September is Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month, and it’s a great month to start working towards a healthier diet by incorporating more fruits and vegetables into every meal.

A lot of children – and adults – don’t eat the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. In fact, the Produce for Better Health Foundation reports that up to 90 percent of children and adults do not eat enough fruits and veggies. During the month of September, turn that statistic around by getting everyone in the family to include more healthy foods into their breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
