UNICEF Announces Launch Of KID POWER!

unicef

UNICEF excitedly announced today, February 25th, the launch of a revolutionary new tech & fitness program that’s working to get American youth active while helping to save lives around the world.  Through the use of the world’s first “wearable tech for good,” around 10,000 elementary school students in Dallas, Boston and NYC will take part in Kid Power which provides lifesaving nutrition to severely malnourished children.

Beginning in March, the thousands of participants will monitor their physical activity with UNICEF Kid Power fitness bands that tracks kids on their way to a goal of 12,000 steps a day.  That full day of physical activity converts into one packet of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food, a specially-designed protein and vitamin-rich paste used to save the lives of children with severe acute malnutrition.

The kids participating in the 30-day challenge will be joined by the help of their mayors, UNICEF ambassador Tyson Chandler, the Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins.

Merging technology, fitness and philanthropy, Kid Power will work to save lives around the world.

This is something truly great! Go, KID POWER!

Miley Cyrus Not Taking Chances With Her Health Now–New Details Emerge!!

Miley Cyrus "Bangerz Tour" - Tour Opener - Vancouver, BC

Miley Cyrus is not taking anymore chances with her health when she resumes her Bangerz tour in the UK. Details have emerged from a source that is saying that she will have nurses on the tour to care for her in case her symptoms flare up again. So far Miley has had to postponed a few shows already on the European leg of her tour due to her continued issues with her health.

“Miley has been under the supervision of two nurses, who are monitoring her progress 24 hours a day at her home. She already has a nurse on standby for when she lands in the UK. The worst thing about her illness is that there are times when she feels entirely fine but then suddenly her symptoms flare up again. The reaction could still affect her over the next few days but Miley is determined to put on a great show for her UK fans.”

The insider added: “While she was in hospital, she couldn’t really eat without feeling nauseous so she started bingeing on junk food. Now she has been placed on a strict diet of fresh fruit and veg, and is having vitamin shots to boost her immunity. Plus she has been banned from drinking booze or smoking anything, especially weed.”

We sure hope Miley gets to feeling better soon. What do you guys think of her continuing to have health issues?

BKR Bottle For That Mom On The Go – Mother’s Day Guide

7814

Keep mom healthy with a glass and silicone bkr bottle. Void of the harmful chemicals in traditional plastic bottles and available in a variety of colors, sizes and even ones with a heart design, these bottles are fashionable, functional, thoughtful and affordable. Celebrity mom fans include: Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Watts, Brooke Burke Charvet, and Malin Akerman.

bkr founders Tal and Kate are friends who share the belief that beauty can change the world. “We created bkr because we were intelligent, fashion-obsessed, cultured women who were drinking out of cheap, disposable plastic water bottles. It didn’t compute, but we were addicted. We searched and couldn’t find a reusable water bottle we loved. We wanted something clean, clear, effortless, luxurious and beautiful – that wasn’t made of plastic or metal, didn’t have a huge mouth, and didn’t feel like camping equipment. Something we could become more attached to than plastic water bottles. From this the idea for our luxe little bkr was born.”
