    Raising money for girls education through Malala's fund on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/donate/1899214786776587/
    So far we raised $50 out of the $100 goal. It is humbling and makes me happy to see people do care.

    Started a fundraiser  for Malala fund on Facebook. Turning out it is quite  easy to start a fundraiser, they have this feature on the left side of the page.

    Found this great article about product dates: https://health.clevelandclinic.org/trash-it-or-eat-it-the-truth-about-expiration-dates/ 
    The rule of thumb: Expiration date is about food safety, other dates not as big of a deal if they are passed, within reason. Meat and other things that spoil easily - a couple of days after best buy date is fine. 
    Also, back of the fridge is the coolest.

    I deleted my post thinking I am just canceling a reply. Anyway, the reason I am adding this is to share a great resource drawdown ecochallenge team gave me: https://drawdown.ecochallenge.org/about/resources  with lots of tools to help the teams have a successful EcoChallenge.

    We must do something about  our local and global environment problems affecting our health and threatening our existence. These eco-challenges are a fun way to engage, learn and invite others to help.
