Happy New Year everyone!! We hope that this 12th day of 2014 finds all of you having an awesome year so far. There are about 353 days left in the year so how will we spend them? We at ThePinkC know we’re up for an adventure! This random posting and barrage of fall posts might be our continued pattern this year. Life happens and we’re trying to enjoy life so we hope it works for you all to see some infrequent posting. We’re not Ellie, even though we try to keep her vision going, and we’ve had to admit this to ourselves. But we hope that you’ll enjoy the content we do have to share and will give us feedback for what you wish to see in the near future.

April is Organ Donation Month! Even though the month itself is almost over, we at ThePinkC cherish the idea of organ donation. Ellie was an organ donor and helped save the lives of several other people through her gifts. Organ donation isn’t something most people jump out of bed thinking about and it revolves around a topic most of us don’t want to think about. But organ donation doesn’t have to be morbid and it can be straightforward to make happen. Every day someone is in need of an organ and there isn’t one available. If you’re confused, scared, worried, or even over the moon about organ donation, there are a few things we think you should do.

A Tech Year of Service

The National Day of Service in the United States was January 19 this year. The celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday was the 21st. Even though these are two very recognized days to spend a day on not a day off helping your fellow man (animal, nature, etc). This doesn’t mean these are the only two days that you should give service. As Marian Wright Edelman said “Service is the rent we pay to be living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time.”. We all have different reasons for serving. For some, there is the intrinsic happiness we get from having served. For others, there is the happiness that comes from extrinsic motivators like recognition and honor. Either way, you need to find some service!

It’s January 1. I bet you’ve already heard about a million New Year’s Resolutions. What’s different between goals and New Year’s resolutions? I bet you’ll accomplish more of your ordinary goals. You’re under pressure to complete any goal, but often what we do is make the toughest ones resolutions and then tell everybody. That quadruples the pressure. So let’s just stick to some goals and leave the pressure behind? With me?

Time to Update Your Emergency Kit!

In the US, today is the first day of Daylight Savings Time. This change to and from Daylight Savings Time is great for remembering that you should not only change your clocks, but check your emergency kit and check your fire alarm/carbon monoxide detector batteries. While I’m a public health geek through and through, my emergency kit isn’t only food and flashlights. I have tech supplies too! Below I’ll cover both, but think about setting these up more as a marathon not a sprint. Trying to acquire even just the home emergency kit can cost quite a bit of money so for many of us it involves some saving and some bit by bit shopping.
