In The Spotlight for The Month of April 2017
Next Time It Could Be You As The Center of Attention!
Ginto means Golden. "Hit Da Bank"
Tamaad Thompson age 21 asked his father to buy him his first microphone and this is what he came up with, "Hit Da Bank". A student of Queensboro College in Queens, New York, Tamaad is part of New York City's STEM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). From East Orange, New Jersey to Hollis - Queens, New York this is his first song. Tamaad took off like a fish to water when his father bought him that microphone. He has other songs yet to be released, "Lit 4 Life". Tamaad says, "Nothing can stop you, if you put your mind and heart into it". "Lit 4 Life" is based on this premise of being happy and enjoying what you do for life. We hope we can encourage him to continue. Awesome job Tamaad! Welcome to our spotlight.

Whether you know nothing about essential oils and are just starting to research them or you have been using them for many, many years, we all have one thing in common: we want the purest and highest quality essential oils available.
There are many companies that sell essential oils. What makes Plant Therapy different? What makes Plant Therapy the best essential oil company?
The PEOPLE. The owners. The management team. The aromatherapist team. The customer service team. The warehouse team. And last but not least, the BEST customers. We go above and beyond just selling the highest quality essential oils. We want to do more. That is why we created the first ever full line of KidSafe® synergies. Formulated by Robert Tisserand, parents can know without a doubt that they are helping bless the lives of their children with the safest and most effective oils on the market for their young ones.

This is a petition to United States Congress | Senate | President to reconsider the massive cuts in these program areas. Currently there are millions of people who are homeless nationwide and most are hungry. The folks who will benefit from keeping these programs are the impoverished. The people who barely make ends meet and need a valued education to gain the skills for a better future for themselves and children. We hope to gain a massive amount of signatures so every thing you can do to make certain lonely grandma and grandpa gets meals on wheels and children get after school lunch while their parents work a minimum wage job would assist.
Next to this offer on the left is an opportunity to help young children in St Jude's Children's Research Hospital. The Founder is Danny Thomas. The Research Hospital helps young children who are terminally ill by providing medical services, resources and/or granting a child's medical wish. Most of the children have some form of cancer or some other debilitating disease. Their parents struggle emotionally and financially to help their children. Many entertainers and volunteers help build the spirits of these children. For every item ie: Tshirt you purchase you automatically donate to this hospital. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
Thank you! We're glad we could help Ms K. Carter.
I have Asperger's Syndrome, but I'm not letting it stop me! My name is K. Carter and I am part high school student, part volunteer-intern-extraordinaire here at EducatorLabs, where I'm getting to help with research and now a bit of outreach!
I'm lucky enough to get work experience, but I know not everyone else with Asperger's and other autistic disorders is so lucky and gets to live such an active life. I get self-conscious around people sometimes though I love to write, but over time I've been coming out of my shell by trying new things. I want others to do the same!
I'm trying to put together resources to help empower others with autism to be confident, social, and able to overcome their obstacles. My goal is to hear back from 25 people who have shared my findings, and then I can get credit for volunteering.
I'm excited to share what I've found so far in hopes that your visitors would find them useful, too (maybe here: http://www.penamon.com/)!

Thanks! K. Carter from: Cary, North Carolina.
