Let’s Help These Kids

I ran into an old High School friend on Sunday,  by the way it was really good to see you again,Christy. She told me about a fundraiser her group was having( see attached below) Christy is involved with a very special place called, my friends place. It is Southeastern Washington's only licensed shelter for homeless teenagers, ages 13-17. I had no idea there were so many homeless teens. My friends place serves up to  200 youth per year. Richland, Kennewick and Pasco school districts report approximately 650 registered homeless children at any given time. My friends place sees about 16 kids a night. Kids can get a hot meal, use the laundry services or just kick back and talk with one of the staff members. Greg and I want to get more involved with this, and we think you should also. No kid should have to live on the streets, and everyone deserves a second chance. Read about the costume ball and make plans to attend. For more info, call 509-460-4985

Hawaii Remains the Nation’s Happiest State, But What’s the Unhappiest One?

Just like it did last year, Hawaii snagged the top spot in Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which ranks the happiness level of each state.

The index bases happiness on a combination of six factors: emotional health, physical health, healthy lifestyle, job satisfaction, access to health care and safe places to exercise, and, finally, life evaluation — which includes a self-evaluation about your present life situation and your anticipated life situation in five years.

About 177,000 Americans 18 and older took the survey, which was administered between January and June of this year. North Dakota and Alaska took second and third, respectively, while West Virginia rated the unhappiest state. Check out where your state landed below.
