PlanetAid Helps Improve The Environment

My daughter Coree just sent me an email about Planet Aid asking me to let you know what they do and how you can help them...


Planet Aid recycles 58 million pounds of clothing and textiles

Planet Aid facilitates a free environmental recycling program that accepts textiles, clothing and shoes to lessen the burden of waste in North American landfills.

Last year, Planet Aid recycled 58 million pounds of clothing and textiles. This effort alone reduced the CO2 emission into the
atmosphere at an amount equal to keeping 13,000 cars off the road for a year! They also saved an estimated 60 billion gallons of water- equivalent to the yearly water usage of almost 2 million people.

Planet Aid donation boxes are now in several locations and are now starting to align in California in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles with businesses, schools and other facilities. They are now accepting any clothing, textiles and shoes!

If you are a business who would like to provide this free service in the Los Angeles community and help protect the Planet Contact: Jen Bolin, Corporate Affiliations Manager at 310-963-1566

For more information on Planet Aid and all their drop of locations visit the Planet Aid Website.

Remembering Red Buttons

Red ButtonsRed ButtonsI never had the pleasure of meeting Red Buttons, but he made an impact on my life. Sayonara is one of my favorite movies. It taught me a lot about compassion and equality. He had a remarkable career. But when I read about Red in the news reports about his passing, I was even more impressed by how much he accomplished for charity.

Red served as an honorary reserve officer for the U.S. Army Reserve and the Orange County Sheriff's Department. His tireless work for the City of Hope earned him a "Spirit of Life Award". He was also awarded a lifetime achievement "Suzie" from the Eddie Cantor Foundation, and was named "Mr. Wonderful" at the 49th annual ball of the Thalians, Hollywood's original celebrity charity. On the old Dean Martin roasts, Red was famous for his "never got a dinner" routine... I'm glad that he was recognized himself for his charitable work.

Thanks, Red.
