Weekly Divadom Picks...

With children and teens out of school in just a few weeks, many will be without adult supervision during the summer months. I thought your readers might have interest in this innovative, life-saving device to keep our young ones protected if an emergency occurs!

A child goes missing every 40 seconds and every minute thereafter is critical to finding them. Zephora Haddon, mom expert and co-founder of Our Child Safe™ or Amber Alert Registry™ system is working with schools, families, and PTA’s across the country to keep kids safe in an emergency, runaway or abduction.

Her proactive system is a valuable tool for parents to have their child's current vital information (height, weight, photo, medical issues etc…) at law enforcement's fingertips if an abduction or runaway occurs. Our Child Safe™ saves crucial minutes to initiate an immediate response from local authorities.

I’d like to introduce you to Adbirds in hopes that you will blog about it and tweet about it, so all parents will know there are other options out there when it comes to buying and selling items locally.

Are you tired of boring ads on Craigslist? Yawn. Or the personal ads? Shady. Or the fact that 10 minutes after you post an item for sale, 20 more ads are in front of yours? Well, I’ve discovered a new site and I’m turning to you, my bloggy friends, to help me spread the word.

The website is Adbirds and here are a few reasons why you’ll like it:
  • The owner of Adbirds, an Austin-based start up, has created a family-friendly, eco-friendly, community-friendly online shopping environment.
  • As soon as an ad is placed, senior management receives a text message instantly. That way any questionable ads never even make it to the site. There are no personals on Adbirds, so it removes the “adult” element entirely.
  • You can post an ad for free with up to 10 pics. You can embed links, video links, etc. with ease. The interface looks just like Word, so even a novice can use it.
  • Free accounts have a unique user name and unique URL (address), like on eBay but without a credit card on file. Any Free account can run 5 ads at a time.
  • All ads have the "share" features enabled so you or anyone can quickly forward your ad to their friends and paste to their preferred social networking sites and blogs.
  • Feel the community love - All users are encouraged to help build awareness of a local favorite organization with name and web link using the "favorite charity" identifier from the account manager. The name and link will appear at the top of every ad.
