The following is a post sponsored by Yahoo! Every time someone clicks here to make Yahoo! their homepage, they’re showing their support for Girls For A Change.

I was selected for this opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

Have you ever sat and thought, “Man, I really wish there was more I could do to help out ‘abc…’ or ‘xyz…’” but you don’t have the time/money/resources?

I often feel that way, as there are so many wonderful charities and organizations out there that deserve extra support. One of those organizations is Girls For A Change; and lucky for us, we all have a major opportunity on our hands…

We can help raise up to $10,000 for Girls For A Change by simply making Yahoo! our browser’s homepage.

First, let me fill you in a bit on GFC…

Girls For A Change (GFC) is a national organization that empowers girls to create social change. They invite young women to design, lead, fund and implement social change projects that tackle issues that many girls face right in their own neighborhoods.

GFC empowers girls for personal and social transformation. The program inspires girls to have the voice, ability and problem solving capacity to speak up, be decision makers, create visionary change and realize their full potential.”

“Great! So what can I do to help?”

Right now, Yahoo! will donate $10 to Girls For A Change (GFC) for each person who clicks here to make Yahoo! his/her homepage by June 30th (today!)…up to an amazing $10,000!

To do so, simply go to this link and follow the instructions. It’s important that you use that specific link, since that will be the only way that Yahoo! can track users who change their homepage.

I’ve already gone ahead and made the change. It’s quick, simple, and will make a difference for something I support!

So who’s going to join me??

Lunch

Wow…I think this had to be my thickest smoothie on record. So much so, in fact, that it called for my first ever Smoothie Bowl. Smile

Today’s Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie Bowl consisted of:

  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 5 strawberries
  • ~1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp strawberry extract (<—so awesome!)
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (for thickening…and boy did it work!)
  • 1 big handful spinach

Of course, I couldn’t help but top it off with some more Love Grown Foods granola.

And I also made sure to eat it with my favorite coffee mug spoon.

Small spoon = longer lasting smoothie bowl. Winking smile
