#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) www.lawnguru.co For more details, view here

Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.

Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.

So when I found the LawnGuru services through Amazon home and business services I was in like Flynn… (I actually don’t know what that means), but I was in love.

I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.

It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.

Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.

P.S. They also do snow removal also

I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.

For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”

#MotownMom: Baltimore Ravens Lineman Carl Davis Hosts Cleanup Day for Kids in #Detroit via @Trenchwork94

Baltimore Ravens Lineman & Detroit Native Carl Davis Hosts Cleanup Day in Detroit

 

DETROIT, MI- Baltimore Ravens lineman Carl Davis is back in Detroit to help make a difference in the lives of kids in his hometown.  The 26-year-old NFL pro has three events planned to uplift inner-city kids this offseason, starting with a badly needed renovation of his old football stomping grounds.

Davis will kick-off his hometown give back with a Cleanup Day on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 8am-2pm, to revitalize the dilapidated football field and surrounding area adjacent to his childhood alma matter; McKenzie Elementary-Middle School.

McKenzie’s football field, located at 10147 West Chicago in Detroit, was built for the former MacKenzie High School, but shortly after the field was completed the high school was torn down, and the field was left for vandals.

Davis, who has already begun recruiting Cleanup Day volunteers, is looking for at least 100 volunteers on May 5 to help him clean up debris, make repairs and revitalize the football field at McKenzie for K-8 athletes.  Anyone wishing to volunteer to help Carl on Cleanup Day can sign up via email at EventsB1M@gmail.com.

“It’s important to me that children in Detroit know that they matter to me,” said Davis. “Here’s a whole group of kids and young athletes attending my old school (McKenzie), with a football field right next to them, that have to travel all over the city for field time, because the field is completely unusable in its present state.  The Cleanup Day restoration is one way I can help create better opportunities for these kids to succeed, while letting them know they are cared about and supported.”

The 6’5, 327-pound Baltimore Ravens defensive end will also be hosting a free Youth Football and Education Camp for local kids on June 23, 2018, and a free Community Day on June 30, 2018, at the newly renovated field.

Davis, who grew up on Detroit’s west side, founded his own non-profit, called the Trenchwork Foundation, in 2017 to focus on community redevelopment in Detroit, and create healthy living, educational, and community opportunities for children in his hometown.

About the Trenchwork Foundation

The Trenchwork Foundation was founded by Baltimore Ravens’ defensive end Carl Davis in 2017. Carl came from one of Detroit’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods.  During his early childhood the area was healthy and thriving, but due to the loss of jobs, the increase in crime, and lack of other essential resources, people began to flee the city.  From this came Carl’s inspiration for the Trenchwork Foundation, with a mission to “Build a Community” and to rejuvenate Detroit’s toughest areas into a thriving community full of opportunities.

Davis is very active and passionate about giving back to the Baltimore and Detroit communities.  In the past year, Davis and the Trenchwork Foundation have brought Baltimore Ravens players and police officers together to visit schools and community centers in West Baltimore to talk with kids to help build a better relationship between the community and the police, donated and sponsored new equipment, book bags and gear to the Westside Steelers of Detroit, donated gym bags and book bags to Cody High School students in Detroit, and, along with Brandon Jackson, founder of Greatness Camp, partnered for a Day of Service that entailed providing a local Walmart shopping spree and lunch for Detroit area youth, and distributing backpacks and donations to the area Police Athletic League football teams.

o/t #MotownMoms: Did you know Indiana Installed ‘Safe Haven Baby Boxes’ for Abandoned Newborns

by Daniella Silva  ( this article was originally published on nbcnews last year)
Monica Kelsey and the town of Woodburn, Ind., dedicated the first Safe Haven Baby Box of its kind on in 2016  of April 26.

Indiana has installed two “baby boxes” where mothers can anonymously drop off unwanted newborns as an extension of the state’s safe haven law.

Two Safe Haven Baby Boxes were opened to the public recently at Indiana fire stations as part of an initiative to give mothers in crisis a secure place to surrender their babies, said Monica Kelsey, a volunteer firefighter and founder of the nonprofit that created the boxes.

“I was abandoned as an infant back in 1973, so I’ve always been very close to the safe haven law,” she told NBC News on Thursday.

The first box was installed last week on the exterior wall of the fire department in Woodburn, near Fort Wayne, where Kelsey volunteers. When a person opens the baby box, a call is immediately placed to 911, and fire and medical personnel are dispatched to the scene.

The box is padded and climate controlled to keep the baby warm while still allowing air circulation, Kelsey said, and automatically locks once a person leaves the child and shuts the door.

  1. What do you think and should these come to Detroit? Would this cut down on newborns being killed or dying because they were left in the elements?

“The single-biggest challenge any candidate faces when they run for office is raising money,” said Mason Harrison, Crowdpac’s Head of Communications. “In this seminar, we’ll teach citizens the basics of exploring a run for office and raising the money they need to actually win.”

Crowdfund Your Run for Office will be held at WeWork Merchant’s Row, located at 1449 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Networking, drinks, and refreshments will begin at 5:30 PM followed by an interactive presentation and discussion from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. While the event is free, space is limited and RSVPs are required to attend.
