Cheat Sheet: Joe Jonas' Birthday, Weekend Without Oil and Back to School
Raise your eco-consciousness and get your family involved by signing DoSomething.org's Weekend Without Oil pledge. By signing the pledge for the Weekend Without Oil, you'll be promising to be conscious of your actions from Aug. 21-22. Just by walking or riding your bike; not buying new sports equipment, makeup or electronics; and using reusable bags and aluminum water bottles, you could offset six gallons of oil in just two days. Isn't that amazing?
It's the middle of August and while for some of us that means heat waves and days spent on the beach, for many of us it mainly signals the end of summer break, or back to school! Whether you consider going back a blessing or a curse, AOL Kids has a back to school special feature that's sure to help. It's packed with ideas for great first day looks, as well as activities and games to keep kids from stressing out over the return.
