Welcome to our first KIKI ART Design Team Blog Hop... only we call it BLOG HOPSCOTCH!
• When? During National Scrapbook Day week-end.
It will run from Thursday 29th until Monday May 3rd
• How to play? You start wherever you want, visiting the blogs of our talented Design team members (including all three Kiki Art blogs at the same time).
Each member of our design team was asked to pick a good cause and create a project based on that cause to show it on their blogs. So you have to find out which cause they are supporting and take note of it.
When you hop from one design team member to the other you will get inspired by their artistic work and hopefully you will also get inspired seeing all the efforts some human beings do to give us a better world.
• How to get a prize from the Kiki Art blog?
You can participate to be one of the random picked winners to get a prize from the Kiki Art blog.
To qualify for that chance you have to leave a comment on the Kiki Art blog, mentioning which one were your favorite blogs during your visits at the blog hop and the causes they have picked (don't limit yourself... you can choose as many blogs as you want!)
• How to get a prize from a Kiki Art design team member blog?
Many members of our design team have decided to give away a project that is related to the good cause they believe in. Leave a message in to their blogs and they will pick a random winner from the comments left on their post.
On Tuesday, May 4th, all the Giveaway winners will be announced throughout all the blog sites!
Let's the BLOG HOPSCOTCH begin!! Get inspired and enjoy!
When I was asked to choose a good cause to represent on my blog, at first I had a heck of a time trying to think of something that was close to my heart. Then one day while watching TV I saw something that interested me very much. That was, the Let's Move Campaign to fight childhood obesity. That, combined with shows like Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and The Biggest Loser, I knew immediately what good cause I needed to highlight for you today. I hope this will inspire someone else to help fight the epidemic of childhood obesity. I myself was an overweight child and now that I am a mother, I want to prevent my daughter from going through the same pains that I did and to teach her in a positive manner the importance of a healthy body.
The Let's Move Campaign is supported by First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as community leaders, teachers, doctors, nurses, moms and dads in a nationwide campaign to tackle the challenge of childhood obesity.
From the Let's Move website, which can be found here
"Obesity threatens the healthy future of one third of all American children. Obesity rates have tripled in the past 30 years.
We spend $150 billion every year to treat obesity-related conditions, and that number is growing. For the first time in American history, our children’s life expectancy may be shorter than their parents’.
We need to get moving."
I encourage everyone to go to the Let's Move website to find out how you can join this important movement and help your own family as well. Find out more at http://letsmove.gov/index.html
Just to say thanks for taking notice of this good cause, I'm going to be giving away this cute little altered lunch pail made with Kiki-Art papers, and glittered chipboard. Leave me a comment and I'll be sending this out to one random lucky gal. And don't forget, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!!
