You Can Go MAD This July 4th!!!

I hope you have an AMAZING 4th of July weekend. I was inspired today by reading USA today, they had a story on how you can Make A Difference this weekend. Here are some of the ideas:

-- Celebrate the 4th by sending a message of thanks to our troops defending our freedoms abroad. Visit the USO.org website to leave your message and be inspired by the other messages of thanks.

-- Or you can dedicate your celebration to the troops, encourages the folks at DoSomething.org. Take a moment of silence for them, or collect supplies for a DoSomething HeroBox to send to military currently serving.

-- Invite a neighbor or lonely relative to join in your 4th of July festivities this weekend. Or drop off a pie or freshly baked cookies to a neighbor or friend who might be stuck at home or the hospital due to an illness.

If you have some great ideas to add, that would be AWESOME!
