The Silverbacks, North American Soccer League’s Spring Season Champions, have announced that the club will host a sleepover fundraising event to benefit the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Saturday, Oct. 12, at Atlanta Silverbacks Park. The “TeamUP for Missing Children” fundraiser will begin immediately following the game with the Minnesota United and concludeSunday morning, Oct. 13 at 6 a.m.
 
We are thrilled to host the first event of this kind with the National Center and bring to light such a critical issue in our communities locally and nationally,” Silverbacks General Manager Andy Smith said. “As a father, I know that protecting our children is crucial for our future, and we hope this event can raise money and bring awareness to children in our communities who need our help the most.” 


There are up to 2,000 children reported missing every day in the United States,” said John Ryan, CEO of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. “This event is for them, to show they are not forgotten and to help bring them home. We are grateful to the Atlanta Silverbacks and their fans for supporting our work to find missing children and prevent the abduction and sexual exploitation of children.”
 
On-field festivities are planned for the 10-hour sleepover at Silverbacks Park, including movies on a pop-up screen on the field, games, soccer inflatables and appearances from Silverbacks players and coaches. An area on the field will be reserved for participants who would like to sleep during the course of the night and guests are encouraged to bring blankets and sleeping bags. Food and drink will be provided.

The online registration site allows participants to set up a fundraising page of their own, through which they can contact friends and family to ask for donations. Donors can go directly to the fundraising page and make a donation online. Participants are asked to set a goal of raising $500 each for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, but they must raise a minimum of $50 in order to attend the event on Oct. 12.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*



When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny.

Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
