This week was full of surprises-good surprises. Part of what I truly love about this job is that I rarely have any idea what each day will bring. I can plan and organize as much as I want, but sometimes that inbox has something else in mind for me. And I like it that way. The down side of the surprise element is that I sometimes don’t get as much accomplished as I would like during the day. This was one of those weeks where I was off-track, but somehow landed back on. Here are a few of the highlights.
Disney Petition Update
This week I want to send a shout out to a few of the incredible supporters of my Disney petition.
- Thank you to Katy from Non-Toxic Kids for writing a wonderful article about the petition.
- I’m so grateful to Emily over at Random Recycling for sharing information on the petition with her readers.
- Thank you to Sarah Caron over at SheKnows for publishing an article after interviewing me about the petition.
- I so appreciate the mention of the Disney petition by Dr. Sarah Janssen in LA Weekly.
At last check 57,716 of you had signed the petition asking Disney to remove toxic chemicals from their Spiderman and princess lunch boxes. THANK YOU.
