Changing Lives Community

MOMS, Meet Sonia Avila, Chief Executive Officer for Changing Lives Community! In her own words:

I am writing to introduce you to a very special organization that has the potential to completely transform the meaning of the word ‘community’ as we know it today. Its name is Changing Lives Community. Our goal is to provide support, treatment, education and life skills to vulnerable individuals, families, and veterans who are experiencing social displacement as a result of situations that have led to homelessness, substance abuse, PTSD or other soul-crushing conditions. We plan to create the framework for a better future by offering resources to help them attain and maintain a life of sustainable self-sufficiency.

Our current objective is to build a self-sustainable, eco-focused community that will offer a resident capacity for 2.000 people along with a communal dining hall and professional kitchen, a veteran’s center, a hospital, a school campus, a recreational center, an environmental center, and various social and working hubs that range from manufacturing to agricultural and farming complexes.

Powered by 100 percent clean, renewable energy, we are confident that our community will set a new benchmark for self-sufficient living in a society that has become too reliant on overburdened educational, medical, social and welfare systems. Similar models have been successfully adopted in Italy, where the self-sustaining San Patrignano community has provided excellent support to over 25,000 people for over 35 years without government funding.

We have received an overwhelming response of public interest and plan to start formal press releases in April 2016. Changing Lives has already received approval for a $100 million construction loan, but we must now provide a detailed development plan, a solid corporate structure and a financial risk policy for the loan (insurance). Our community will be built on the West Coast of the United States, and we are very excited to have made so much progress in only two years.

We will place a special emphasis on veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There are almost 40 million veterans now living in the United States. These brave and selfless men and women have been willing to risk their lives for us! Unfortunately, after their service, many veterans find it difficult to assimilate back into society. Many suffer with mental health issues such as PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries. They often have trouble maintaining relationships and finding employment. Some are challenged by substance abuse along with their visible (and invisible) disabilities, and far too many are homeless. After the intensity of military life, there is often a profound sense of ‘disconnect’ leading to despair and possible suicide.

I am currently looking for collaborators to help Changing Lives develop our programs, forge community coalitions, secure funding and promote our message on a national scale. This type of help will be critical to our success, and I hope that you will consider working with us in some capacity even if it is simply including our contact information in your databases for further reference. We do not intend to use any government support for this project, and hope that the services we provide will lead to eventual tax relief for USA citizens.

Warm regards,

Join MotherStucker & BACK the Wildfire Protection Barrier Shield KICKSTARTER!

Thousands of families lose their homes, business & belongings to wildfires every year. People in  at risk areas usually have little warning before they must evacuate their homes, leaving them with no option but to abandon their belongings & get on the road quickly. Many of them are left destitute & without a home.

It’s time we change how we protect our investments with THIS Protective Barrier Shield that saves property & belongings from wildfires. Inspired by the emergency shelters wild-land firefighters use in the field when trapped by fire. The structural barrier shield is a simple/affordable & highly effective protective covering for homes, that reflects up to 95% of the radiant heat from a fire & prevents flames/embers from reaching the structure.

Join MotherStucker & BACK the Wildfire Protection Barrier Shield KICKSTARTER TODAY! Thanks for YOUR support!

Have You Seen My Pet Dragon?” is a collection of several hundred poems. This book of poems appeal to children of all ages, from early readers on.  There are all sorts of different characters & perspectives.  All of these poems contain a positive, hopeful spin on the world… plus a little zany silliness. There’s the one about Alexander, the world’s first vegetarian lion. There are several about animals of all shapes & sizes. One of my favorites is about a pirate & a ninja who decide to switch jobs for a while.  😉 … & let’s not forget the story of a small child’s pet dragon… who is not quite what he seems. Imaginations can do that! Join MotherStucker & back this kickstarter to get YOURS this Fall!

Electromagnate: Secret Weapon to Pull Your Kids Back to the Living Room

In Electromagnate two teams (of 1 to 3 players per side) compete to close circuits on the game board. Players traverse grid nodes & place component cards onto grid lines. Once you close a circuit you begin to draw power from the enclosed area. Acquired power can be used to purchase character upgrades, which increase player abilities (or technology can be purchased, to help your play or hamper your opponents). Finally, megaliths can be purchased/built, to increase the power gained from areas.

Combat can be enacted to battle your opponent for control of grid nodes or grid lines. Inserted into the combat/poker deck are random event cards, which bring elements of chance to the game. The unique game board, innovative game mechanic & various game systems can be turned on, off or tweaked. The fun of custom gaming, which thrills millions online, becomes up close & personal on the table top.

Send a Meaningful Message to Young Children

What to gift nowadays to young children (ages 10 months to 6 years)? It seems easy, but not that easy.

-“I don’t know which one to pick. Too many choices.”

-“Many toys are similar. Just grab whatever you run into.”

You hear these all the time. This topic provokes deep thoughts. That’s why retailer Ten Octaves carefully selected toys & gifts that meet their criteria to be good choices for young children. Their products are very unique & are picked because of outstanding design, eco-friendliness, handmade products, organic materials &/or social responsibilities. Most of them are award winners. Some have upwards of 16 awards under their belts. Many collections are available. Dolls, puppets, rockers, balance bike, building toys, accessories even animal wall décor. Most of them are not found in your nearby toy/gift stores. Check out at TenOctaves.com, you will be surprised! Want unique, high-end toys & gifts? Look no further.

Kids are like sponges. When they get a gift, they are getting a message. Just like every word heard by infants. They will understand in their own way, on their own terms & on their own pace. It’s up to parents to send a meaningful one starting from a young age. 😉

Shop. Share. Earn.

Perks of Going to High School Online: Why Parents & Students Love Online Learning

Today’s families choose from a variety of different schooling opportunities — such as traditional K-12 schooling, homeschooling or high school online. While educational choice is a great thing, some parents can get confused about which one is right for their child.

You are most likely familiar with traditional brick & mortar high schools. Chances are that you even attended one yourself. Homeschool is another option, but this option puts a lot of pressure on parents to teach the coursework. What parent wants to teach Chemistry or Geometry or Physics? Not many that I know of.

High school online is the perfect balance between the two previous options. It gives parents & students more academic control, without relying on a parent to take on the role of a teacher.

That’s why American High School is a perfect choice for parents & students. Homeschoolers enroll in the online school because it allows them flexibility in their learning. With online learning, motivated homeschooled teens don’t need to be held back by classes that must take four years to complete. Instead, the homeschooled students can choose an online high school that allows students to finish courses as fast as they are able to complete the coursework. Many online high school graduates have earned their diplomas & moved on to ​college one or two years ahead of their peers.

Here’s some more information about the benefits of attending American High school online:

  1. Online classes are available 24/7 every day, which means students can participate in their education when they want & take breaks as needed.
  2. Students can choose their own learning pace. They can advance more quickly in subjects they like & they excel in and take extra time on subjects when needed that they don’t like as much (Math as an example).
  3. Students who attend American High School online can access their lessons, ebooks, videos, journals, discussion boards, PowerPoint presentations & any other coursework material ANY time they want.
  4. Teachers at online schools tend to be more accessible to students — this is primarily attributed to the ease of communication through the traditional email & telephone, as well as video to email & video to phone. These various communication tools allow online students to email, chat, text or even call their teachers.
  5. Online schools use multiple forms of teaching materials, including videos, slideshows & lecture notes. These methods are more accommodating to different learning styles.
  6. One-on-one interactions with instructors create a safe & comfortable learning environment.
  7. The U.S. Department of Education reported that research shows students who attend online schools excel at a rapid rate.
  8. Fashion woes are a thing of the past. No one cares what you’re wearing when you attend high school online. You can go to school in your pajamas & get up at 10 a.m. to start their online course.
  9. Where you live plays a big part in what traditional school your child can attend, & the options aren’t always desirable. Online high school is global. No matter where you live, your child has a great schooling option.

Another major perk of attending American High School online is the way it can prepare students for college. Children who go to high school online receive an excellent education that is based on the core curriculum needed for entrance to college, as well as the elective courses that colleges often look for to ensure a student is well rounded. Online students are well prepared for college because they’ve learned to work independently, which is a necessary skill for college success.

Online students have plenty of opportunity to interact with their offline peers by enrolling in extracurricular activities, such as karate lessons, dance lessons, youth group at church, charity work & teen clubs. American High School online students can attend full-time or part-time, meaning these students are also enrolled at a traditional high school & are still able to participate in those school-sponsored extracurricular activities. Regardless of the situation, online students are able to fit extra activities into their schedule easily because online high schools are incredibly flexible.
