#Pak4ACure Valpak Turns Its Blue Envelope Pink!

This post is sponsored by Valpak


This year I've teamed off with Valpak to help spread awareness on why its classic blue envelope is going Pink!  


Valpak has joined the community of bold companies that share in the vision of Susan G. Komen for a world without breast cancer. To amplify awareness around this common vision, Valpak will turn its Blue Envelope pink this October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month while also working to raise local awareness within the communities that they serve and funds in support of the fight to end breast cancer.  In 2018, Valpak will donate at least $50,000 to Komen and will encourage donations and support activation through local and corporate partners. You can find more information at www.valpak.com/komen

Many of us have family members, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances that have been affected by breast cancer. This year I've decided to join the Valpak Team and race for the cure in Milwaukee, WI. I will be racing for my dear Auntie who was recently diagnosed with the early stages of breast cancer. Although my aunt doesn't live close to me, I'd like her to know that I'm here for her and she can count on me for whatever she needs. I'm making a special trip out to Milwaukee to show my support. 

Many of us are familiar with the Susan G. Komen foundation and their fundraising efforts. But here is a quick recap about the race. 

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world's largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. 

The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. 

The Komen Race Series welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to elite runners.

If you would like to help me reach my donation goal please use the link below. If you'd like to join me on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at Milwaukee's Lakefront  you can register here. Together we can provide support for our loved ones. Thank you!

How Google is Helping Families be Internet Awesome

This post is part of a compensated campaign in collaboration with Google and #WeAllGrow Latina Network.

Se Genial en Interent es una manera de educar a los estudiantes y padres sobre el internet.
Last week Google hosted an event for students and their families at Gallistel Language Academy in Chicago. I was so excited to see so many parents and grandparents take interest in their student’s internet safety. I believe that education on any level starts at home with our families. So pleasing to see.


Be Internet Awesome or Se Genial en Internet en Español is Google’s FREE digital citizenship and online safety program designed to teach kids the skills they need to be safe and smart online. The children were given information on how to be internet awesome through a game called Interland. And we know kids love playing computer games. They had a setup of 5 lands. Each representing a key fundamental lesson. Once the students completed the lands they received a certificate of completion. 


The five fundamental lessons are as follows:
· Share with Care | Online Reputation
· Donʼt Fall for Fake | Phishing & Scams
· Secure Your Secrets | Privacy & Security
· Itʼs Cool to Be Kind | Online Harassment
· When in Doubt, Talk It Out | Inappropriate Content

At the school district I’m at we have a 1:1 on day one. This means that all of our district students will be supplied with a device on the first day of school. This includes elementary school aged students. I know that my 6 year old who has her own device can type in search words in a browser and have many pages come up. I think it is very important that both students and parents know how to be confident and safe while using the internet.

In the days when I was growing up we didn’t have to worry about posting something online and having it be there forever for anyone to see. With social media today we need to show our kids how to be smart about what they share, and how to be brave and report any bullying or inappropriate behavior.

Some of the things that stuck with me were:

Be careful who you are sharing information with. Think about how that person could possibly share what you have shared with them. I’m sure many kids forget that just because you post something on social media, and it says it will disappear doesn’t mean someone won’t screenshot it.

Phishing scams are hard to spot sometimes so be alert on any odd emails that ask for personal information.

In order to keep your information safe, try to use passwords that use numbers and symbols in order to make it stronger.

It’s not always enough to tell someone not to be a bully, we need to explain that being positive is key. We also need our kids to know how to respond to negativity and harassment on the internet in a responsible manner. 

Teaching our kids to alert an adult when someone is showing negative behavior is also important.

So do you think your kids are internet ready? Check out these resources available in English and Spanish and get Internet Awesome!
