Celebrate World Water Day with New Nature’s Gate Coupons from CommonKindness.com

Natures Gate CommonKindness CouponNature’s Gate, creator of personal care products formulated from botanical remedies, is celebrating World Water Day—March 22, 2013—with free printable grocery coupons that reward shoppers and support charities. Each CommonKindness.com coupon saves the shopper $1.50 on their Nature’s Gate purchase and generates funds for the nonprofit organization of the shopper’s choice.

CommonKindness donates 20 percent of its revenues to the nonprofit organizations shoppers choose when they go to http://www.CommonKindness.com and start downloading coupons. In honor of World Water Day, Nature’s Gate suggests shoppers consider selecting WaterAid as their designated nonprofit to support the organization’s mission to help communities in Asia, Africa and Central America obtain long-term access to safe, clean water.

The United Nations established World Water Day as a means of focusing attention on the importance of safe water, and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. WaterAid uses this day to raise awareness that 11 percent of the world’s population does not have safe water to drink, and that this coupled with poor sanitation, results in 2,000 children dying every day.

“Over 783 million people around the world still do not have access to safe water,” said Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness.com. “Helping organizations like WaterAid bring water to those who need it is very rewarding to me—and our coupons make it rewarding to consumers.”

Rainwater has always held special significance to Nature’s Gate. Over 40 years ago, founders Leo and Vladimir blended rainwater and natural herbs from their herb shop to create the very first Herbal Rainwater Shampoo. Shortly thereafter, they began giving it away to their friends and herb shop customers. It became a phenomenon all along Venice Beach, California.

Nature’s Gate continues to be inspired by its surroundings, creating formulas that combine proven botanical, herbal, and floral treatments with modern ingredients and techniques. Using all-natural herbs and pH-balanced formulas, each product is carefully formulated to deliver the many benefits of each unique botanical blend. All Nature’s Gate products reflect ongoing efforts to preserve the earth’s natural resources and develop sustainable sources of clean water.

Saving Hope: My Personal Dog Rescue Story

adopt a pet

Stepping Out

I’ve been thinking this morning about my comfort zone and how I sometimes prefer not to move out of it. I reason with myself that I like the way things are and how changes often create chaos.

A few months ago, I was volunteering at an outreach in a neighborhood of very poor families. It always surprises me that many of these families have several pets. There isn’t enough money to feed the children, but they have four cats and two dogs. I like to carry a couple of cans of cat food and dog biscuits in my car for when I visit this area. Yep, I’m an animal lover!

On this particular day, a family I had bought groceries for in the past had a new puppy. A young puppy. This was their third dog. As I played with this sweet little pup, I realized he was not well. I won’t go into all the signs, but all of sudden the thought occurred to me that this pup was not going to make it if someone didn’t get her to the vet.

puppy rescue

I spoke to the family, and they seemed unconcerned. That’s when it happened. Without thinking, I told them this puppy needed a new home, and asked if I could take it right then and find it one. At the time, I had an eighteen year old cat, a four year old cat, two gerbils, and a lovebird, all living in my house. As our family also travels quite a bit, I knew this pup was not going to be able live with us, but I knew it wasn’t going to stay there. The family seemed indifferent, not really caring one way or the other what happened to the dog. A friend dumped her kids toys out of a crate and we put the puppy in, slid it into my car, and away I drove.

This Little Dog Is Going to Die

I volunteer for the Humane Society, and I immediately called them to see what I should do. I left a message and waited to hear. I took the puppy to my house. Over the next 24 hours, it became clear to me that this little girl was going to die if I didn’t get her some help. Finally, the Humane Society called me back and said they would see us. They determined that the dog had either Parvo or hookworm.

If it was Parvo, she probably would not make it. They couldn’t take her, as Parvo was highly contagious, AND if the dog had “done” anything in my yard and had Parvo, I need to notify my neighbors not to walk their dog anywhere near my yard. OH MY WORD. What have I done? They tested her for Parvo and gave her medicine for hookworm, just in case.

Avoiding Bad to Worse

This situation could have gone from bad to worse, but, thankfully, it didn’t. “Hope,” the pup’s new name, did not have Parvo. Within 12 hours, she was a typical crazy puppy, chewing, barking, playing, and stealing the hearts of everyone in my family. But she still needed a home.

animal shelterI took her back to the vet a few days later for a checkup, and they told me someone who volunteered at the Humane Society wanted to adopt her. Leaving her there, I cried, my kids cried, but we knew a family who stayed put would make a better home for her.

That day, I stepped out of my comfort zone. The vet said Hope would have died if she had stayed where I found her. It was a crazy week, but it was worth it, and I have pictures to prove it! You don’t have to go out and rescue puppies to make a difference.

Donate a Few Bucks to your LOCAL Humane Society

I heard from a pretty reliable source that you are better to go directly local than through a national organization. Give locally so you can see the results. Don’t take food. They need to be consistent with what they feed the animals, so they stick to one brand. Even five or ten dollars goes a long way. Be blessed!

“Disney-themed Fruit Crisps from Brothers-All-Natural are far more than a fun and convenient snack that is perfect for lunch boxes, snack bags and road trips,” said Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness. “They are 100% real sliced fruit with all of the nutritional value of fresh fruit with nothing added.”

Freeze-dried for Freshness

Each snack bag contains two servings of nutritious fruit with no added sugars, preservatives, or flavor enhancers. Brothers-All-Natural makes the snack by freeze-drying premium fruit until they are crispy and crunchy.

“Our freeze-drying process locks the natural goodness of the fruit into crunchy crisps that are convenient any time, mess-free, and stay fresh on the pantry shelf for months,” said Rob Larsen, Director of Sales for Brothers-All-Natural.

Unlike many dried fruit products that use a high-temperature evaporation process that can shrink, toughen, and alter the taste and smell of the fruit, the Brothers-All-Natural method gently removes the water through sublimation.

The process, which involves freezing fruit and converting it directly into a gas in a low pressure chamber, retains the fruit’s basic cell structure, natural enzymes, nutrients, aroma, and flavor.
