An Excuse For A Party?

I don’t know about you, but I’ll find any excuse to throw a party. With upcoming March holidays like Saint Patrick’s Day, the lesser-known Submarine Day or even the extremely random Something on a Stick Day, there are many options out there!

Along with these holidays are two important Red Cross celebrations in March: Red Cross Month AND National Flood Safety Awareness Week!

Perhaps you’ll find time this month to donate your skills or money to the Red Cross as it prepares for disasters, trains individuals in life-saving skills and provides blood services to communities near and far.

Celebrate Flood Awareness Week (March 15-19th) by practicing your flood response and by hosting a preparedness party! Then reward yourself with mudslide pie and a disaster flick like 2012!

    If you blog anything about pie, you're required to bring some in to work.

    Nate, I expect to see a mudslide pie on my desk in the next week.

    I hope this information helps. When it comes to our property, what do we expect in case of loss (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, fire, etc.)? The disaster itself is news. What happens after the dust settles is the story: the aftermath shock. Here is something the public should know: with a little curiosity you can mitigate that shock, in case it happens.

    Insurance policyholders/disaster survivors, need to be informed of access to equality–basic rights and information. The internet reaches far more people than anyone would have ever imagined, though difficult to gather those willing to pause, to inspect, to further…to think on their own. And yet, much is available gratis! It just takes looking:
