Acts of Kindness By Rhonda Sciortino Review

ACTS OF KINDNESS
Written by Rhonda Sciortino
978-1-57826-716-3, $12.50 hardcover

Random or otherwise, acts of kindness and generosity are essential to making our world a better place. A celebration of humanity at its best, author and motivational speaker Rhonda Sciortino inspires and delivers in Acts of Kindness, a powerful little book, rich with love.

Through the simplest act of kindness, all of our lives are improved. Genuine human sentiment is best expressed through helping others, in ways big and small. It enables us to rely on one another for strength and happiness. But in the confusion and chaos of the modern world, even small acts of kindness are often overlooked and ignored. Acts of Kindness shines a spotlight on the best that humanity has to offer, one good deed at a time.


About the Author
Rhonda Sciortino is a motivational speaker, author and success coach. She overcame abuse, homelessness, and poverty to become a financially successful entrepreneur, business woman and advocate for abused children.

 She's the chair for the Successful Survivors Foundation, which was created to collaborate with public and private child welfare organizations, the faith-based community, business and community leaders, and schools throughout the country to provide the framework within which foster alumni can establish healthy relationships, mine the lessons out of their adversity, and apply those lessons to create their own personal and professional success.

Rhonda serves as a spokesperson for Vanguard University's Global Center for Women and Justice and for Foster Care Alumni of America. She is a regular contributor to Foster Focus Magazine, Fostering Families Today Magazine, and Children's Voice Magazine. Rhonda lives in Newport Beach, CA with her husband.

Cassandra's Review- While some of these ideas are a lot harder than you would think. Most of them could be great if you execute them wisely.  I think this book is perfect if you're looking for a more positive way to live and help out others as you do so.   It is not recommended for selfish, hateful or people that are living negatively unless you want to change.

Gravitas Ventures has announced the DVD and Blu-Ray release of FALLEN, masterfully narrated by Golden Globe® and Emmy® winning actor Michael Chiklis (“The Shield”). The timely documentary won the Audience Award for "Best Feature Film" at the Phoenix Film Festival and a special mention “Award of Excellent” at Impact Docs, and brings fallen police officers and the constant battle law enforcement faces with media to maintain their reputations to the forefront.

In the United States, a Police Officer is killed in the line of duty every 53 hours. Behind these numbers are countless unsung stories of both heartbreak and triumph overshadowed by negative headlines and criticism at every turn. Pulling back the curtain on this polarizing topic, Fallen rises above divisive politics to expose the humanity behind these statistics with an unflinching look at the constant threats officers face and the devastation left behind when one of them is senselessly killed. Giving these fallen heroes a voice, Fallen tells their stories through the eyes of the partners, families and communities left behind.

Director/Producer/Writer Thomas Marchese conceived of the film when he himself was a police Detective; his life was put in jeopardy in making Fallen. "I really wanted to pull back the curtain and give the viewer a raw look at what it is to be an officer on the street,” he said. “I want to give people a look past the badge and the uniform and have them really see what's at stake when a cop walks out the door, and bring light to the devastation that's left when an officer is killed."

Marchese served as Director, Writer, Producer and Cinematographer of Fallen, his feature-length debut. Emmy® nominee Brenda Strong (“Desperate Housewives,” “Supergirl”) is also a Producer with John Farmanesh-Bocca.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  You will get a reality check on what is really happening in the world of officers.  It is raw, real and gripping to the viewer.  In the end I felt a connection and sadness for all that have fallen.

EZ-On BaBeez Onesies Review

 
EZ-On BaBeez is an innovatively redesigned bodysuit for babies, that provides fast and easy access during diaper changes. The soft, scratch-free Velcro closures at the front waist opening replace traditional snaps.  Traditional snaps can be frustrating to open and downright difficult to close. Solution solved, no more snaps with EZ-On BaBeez.

An indispensable addition to your baby’s wardrobe, the EZ-On BaBeez “onesie” also provides a comfort liner in the diaper area. Wet-resistant, the soft and stretchy fabric lining is easily wiped clean.

“We have “onesies” in solid colors and print designs,” says Julieta Recometa, the designer behind EZ-On BaBeez’s game-changing creation. “We also have seasonal custom prints and appliqued embroidery designs.”

Their design breaks the mold, EZ-On Babeez onesies are available in six traditional sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, and 12-18 months. “Onesies” are made of high quality, soft cotton and cotton/spandex blends for the utmost comfort.

EZ-On BaBeez is compliant with US government safety requirements (CPSC).

I received complimentary product.

Cassandra's Review- Super soft and semi stretchy fabric so that it moves with my little ones.   I like the ease of the onesies as well as the fabric because it dries a little faster.  If you're taking care of babies or or a parent you know that keeping children's poop mess clean and constant changing of clothes can be a pain, so unless the diaper you are using is terrible and super leaky, this will give you better and faster access to the mess. The velcro is secure and it has like a bathing suit feel to it.
