Check Out The "Indiegogo Campaign" And Help Raise Funds To Build 24 Homes For Victims Of Typhoon Haiyan!

Jeff Moore, Tony Tatar, and Chuck Williams, all from St.Louis, Missouri will be traveling to Manila, The Philippines, for a World Record Basketball Event! These three amateur basketball players have been invited to play in the Longest Basketball Game ever played. Only twenty-four players are allowed by World Record rules to compete in this event and these three, and only US players, will be playing in this five day record game, as they currently hold the record. The dates are March 24-29 in Manila, The Philippines. The goal is 120 hours of non-stop basketball and a new world record! The event will benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Via an Indiegogo campaign, Bounce Back Ph Will Build 24 Homes, a basketball community for children, and livelihood programs for Victims of Typhoon Haiyan!

Mission: Typhoon Yolanda was a major, globally recognized, setback for the Philippines. Tying in the Country’s obsession with basketball, our organization believes Bounce Back Ph is a well-suited way to raise money, reinstate people to a post-Yolanda quality of life, and embrace the spirit of championship basketball.

Campaign Goals: Your finances will help rebuild the lives of the Haiyan survivors. You’re not just providing a home. You’re also providing a quality of life, a sense of normalcy, and inspiration to promote an attitude of bouncing back like a champion!

The proceeds from Bounce Back Ph will all be donated to Gawad Kalinga's Operation Walang Iwanan. Gawad Kalinga (which means to "give care" in Filipino) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to end poverty for 5 million Filipino families by 2024. Gawad Kalinga is dedicated to its mission with the passion of not just building homes but cultivating communities with a culture of commitment, service, selflessness and solidarity to uplift their lives and become a source of inspiration to make a difference.

How This Campaign Is Different: Bounce Back Ph's mission is to bring hope from hoops. We will start a Basketball Marathon Village. This village will act as the initial model community for our platform. We are going to select an area in Leyte and build 24 houses, a basketball court, a community hall, and develop livelihood programs. We’re hopeful this concept will be duplicated once the first master plan is built, successful and providing back to the community. Basketball will be our tool of engagement, your funding will be what makes the difference in the lives of the Filipino people. 

The Typhoon and Today: Yolanda, AKA Haiyan, is estimated to have destroyed about 70 to 80 percent of structures in its path as it tore into the coastal provinces of Leyte and Samar. While millions of dollars were initially raised, the continued need for many vital services is still massive. The recovery is about sustainability at this point and for many years to come. This sustainability starts with you! “Normalcy” isn’t close to being at 90%, so much so Google even recently launched a special app to help displaced families reconnect. 

Who We Are: BOUNCE BACK PH aims to provide houses. Our campaign is in partnership with ACCESS Inc. and Gawad Kalinga (GK), which has been at the frontlines of disaster relief and rebuilding efforts since 2003.

Disney's "The Pirate Fairy" Movie Review! (Tinkerbell)

The Pirate Fairy is about a fairy named Zarina. She asks a lot of questions like "Why does Pixie Dust make things fly?" So she tries an experiment that makes the pixie dust change colors. Purple pixie dust makes things move faster. Pink Pixie Dust made a plant grow really big and it overtakes Tinkerbell's home and the Pixie Dust Depot. Zarina gets in trouble, packs up her things, and leaves Pixie Hollow.

The movie also brings back Periwinkle, Tinkerbell's sister from the last Tinkerbell movie "The Secret of the Wings!" During the Pixie Hollow games, Zarina comes back and covers everything with some colored pixie dust, and it makes all of the fairies sleep. She seems to have turned evil. She came to take the stash of blue pixie dust from all of the fairies who live in Pixie Hollow. Without blue pixie dust, the fairies won't be able to fly.

Zarina takes the blue pixie dust to a pirate ship, where she is the captain, and a young Mr. Hook is one of her mates. Zarina does something to switch the fairies talents. Which is interesting to watch when the fairies try to implement their new talents.

The music of the Pirate Fairy is awesome! I hope they put out a soundtrack, my children and I would love to have a copy! The music is pretty inspirational.

Make sure to read my friend, Mitch's interview with the producer of the Pirate Fairy, Jenni Magee-Cook!

Go buy your copy of "The Pirate Fairy" today! You and your children will thank me, and watch to watch it over and over again!

P.S. Make sure to watch the credits until they start scrolling, of course!

I purchased a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack at Wal-mart that included a special DVD with some mini-cartoons with Tinkerbell and her friends for the same price as the regular Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack.

Mayapple Baby Teethers Review and Giveaway! (U.S. & Canada) Ends 4/13 (Rafflecopter)

Mayapple Baby Teethers now has ABC Teething Letters! They join the line of Suri the Octopus & Friends Teethers! All three of my children love these teethers! My two older children like to play with them as though they are toys. They make great bath toys, and also Suri is usually played with when our children are pretending to play with their ocean mammals. My youngest daughter is twenty one months old now, and she's still putting things in her mouth. Only two of her eye teeth have come in so far, and her two year molars will be soon to follow. Mayapple Baby Teethers are big and also perfect for little hands too! (Check out my previous post about Suri & Friends Teethers.)

Mayapple Baby is a family company that was started in 2011 by two parents, Melissa Huang and Mark Caldeira, living in Brooklyn, NY.  They found inspiration (via frustration!) in their newborn daughter’s teething ordeal that year and created Mayapple Baby and its first teething toy line, Suri the Octopus™ and Friends teething toys. In 2012, they established Roving Cove premium child safety products.


ALL Mayapple Baby Teethers are:
  • Made of German medical-grade silicone
  • Plastics Free
  • BPA Free
  • Phthalates Free
  • Nitrosamines Free
  • Heavy Metal Free
  • Choking Hazard Tested

You can purchase Mayapple Baby teethers on, some boutiques, and soon at a store near you!

Enter below for a chance to Win One set of Suri & Friends Teethers and One set of ABC Teethers from Mayapple Baby. Winner gets to choose colors! Giveaway is open to the United States and Canada!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Disclosure: I received all four boxes of Mayapple Baby Teethers for my review post. Mayapple Baby is sponsoring a giveaway of one of each set to one Airplanes and Dragonflies follower! No other compensation was exchanged or received.
