Help Kids to be Courageous

I love children's books because illustration with words can become the most beautiful message. And if animals are some of the main characters, all the better!
If you haven't already seen it, pick up the book "Courageous Gilbert the Groundhog" at Local author Regina E. McCarthy and her illustrator, Sue Dettman, created a wonderful book of characters and important messages--including
anti-bullying! It's a great way to empower kids and build self-esteem. WTTW - TV (11) did a nice piece on it when I did the launch PR awhile back.
Unfortunately, bullies can be found everywhere. It's getting close to Back to School time, so pick up the book in case you need to bring up this tough topic with a young person. The groundhog is very brave and the book is an awesome tool to get kids talking about what's going on at school or on the bus.
Blue Stone Healing Books are developed to help hear the hearts of children so they may lead healthy lives as adults.

The LATE Ride is Coming!

How about a party on a bike?  Imagine a 25-mile leisure ride (no hills, just a little bit on the bridges) through the city we love, Chinatown, Greek Town, the north side, grassy parks, and the incredible lakefront paths (never open at night except at our event).  Cap it off with a sunrise over Lake Michigan.

It's Chicago's L.A.T.E. ride (Long After Twilight Ends!)  Make sure to sign up, we usually have 9,000 participants at this fundraiser for Friends of the Parks.  Thanks to CBS2 Chicago for their sponsorship.

Here's the plan.  Come out Saturday night, June 30, to Buckingham Fountain for fun starting before midnight...then technically the ride starts on Sunday, July 1 at 1 a.m.

Forget the bike lanes, you'll be riding right down the middle of Chicago streets for the tour of a lifetime.  Sign up at  Your money goes to a great cause and the goody bag is awesome.   See you after dark!
