Cozy Phones Sleep Phones with Cool Mesh Lining

When it comes to sleep, it’s not always easy! Something that really helps is listening to music or peaceful sounds. Cozy Phones sleep phones with cool mesh lining will not only help you sleep with the sound of music they’ll keep you cool too. There’s no need to worry about multiple cords getting tangled up as there is only one cord which is braided and will not kink or uncomfortable plugs that go in your ears as the speakers are inside the mesh. We love that they’re comfortable enough to be able to sleep with them on and that they double as a sleep mask.  I (J) know that I personally love the comfort of Cozy Phones as I like to listen to music when I sleep/am falling asleep and think that others will enjoy them too!

These also come in adorable animal designs for kids with the same comfort as the sleep phones.

We really enjoy these ear phones as does the little one. We especially like the fact that you can remove the speakers/headphones to wash the mesh lining and that this company is a Veteran owned family business. You know how much we love supporting family owned businesses and causes. All in all we definitely think these would make a great gift for adults and children for any occasion!

Brightening the Night with String Lights from AUKEY Canada

It’s that time of year again. The days get shorter, the nights get longer and darker and if you’re anything like us or me (J) rather, you enjoy the night but also love the light. The little one especially loves brightening the night with string lights from AUKEY Canada. These awesome string lights are waterproof which we find very cool. We also enjoy the fact that these string lights are made out of copper wire making it sooo much easier to maneuver them around corners, around trees and around other odd shapes. What’s also great is that you don’t see the wire when the lights are on.

  • Multi-function Remote Control: 10 meters range with infrared remote control, 10 brightness levels and two modes (flash / uniform), fulfills various requirement of Christmas, wedding, party

  • Safety: The output voltage of 12V is safe and the rope lights generate very few heat, although after a long time use

  • Excellent LED light chain: 100 mini warm white LEDs provide even brightness, creating a well, dynamic and romantic atmosphere

  • Package Contents: AUKEY LT-SS2 LED String Lights, AC Adapter, Remote Control Receiver, Remote Control, User Manual, 24 Month Warranty

Brightening-the-Night-with-String-Lights-from-AUKEY-Canada

We have to be honest and say that we were a little skeptical when we saw that the string lights were made out of copper wire but upon testing them out, we love them! They’re brighter than other string lights that we have hanging around the house and they can be dimmed for a gentle light that the little one enjoys falling asleep to. We love the multiple functions and that a remote comes with it. For those of us too lazy to get up, lol. Definitely a product worth checking out and great for a gift if you know of anyone making over a room or someone who just likes lights at night like the Mrs and little one.

What is Geocaching?

 

One day we were out looking for painted rocks (you may have heard of this craze) and accidentally stumbled upon a geocache. You can check out that funny experience because I just so happened to be vlogging at the exact time that I found it. Yes! That is something special right there 🙂  CLICK HERE to see our video

 

What is Geocaching you may be asking yourself?

What-is-Geocaching?

Well the simple answer is, it’s like a huge game of hide & seek and your world is the playground. Except you are using GPS/Phone to find caches (or containers) which sometimes have neat items to trade, keep or move it around on its journey.

And of course the more in detail explanation would be: It’s an anytime, anywhere adventure for you and/or your family to enjoy. Trust me, try it once and I am positive you will be hooked. It’s not only a great way to spend time with the family but it’s great exercise and adventure all in one. Geocache containers can come in all different shapes and sizes. They could be in places you wouldn’t think a geocache could be or disguised to blend in with its surroundings. The excitement is not what is in the geocache (box or container) but rather the thrill of the find, discovering new places and everything in between. If you take something, you leave something but there is a lot more than just taking an item. They have trackables, collectibles, tradables and much more that can be found in a geocache which I will go over in another blog post that will be link HERE.
Oh and one more thing, always ALWAYS bring a pen/pencil. Not every log has something to write with

What-is-Geocaching?

As mentioned there is a lot to cover when it comes to geocaching. It’s a never-ending learning experience that I want to tell the world about! Which is what I will be doing through this post.

So I am going to make a list of different things I want to talk about which will lead you to that specific post. I hope by the end of it, you will be motivated and excited to get out there and find your very first geocache!

 

  1. Geocaching Etiquette
  2. Geocaching Slang
  3.  Why get premium?
  4.  Placing your first Geocache
  5. Finding your first Geocache
  6. Favorite cache containers
  7. What’s in your geocache bag
  8. Things you may find in geocache

What-is-Geocaching?

We want to take the time to thank you guys for reading this post and hopefully you will share the fun and excitement, just as we are sure you are 🙂 . We also think this fits in perfectly with our frugal lifestyle as other than the gas to get to point A and B, this is something we can go out and do for absolutely free (they also have basic free membership but you really gotta try premium). And the best part is, that we are getting some exercise and exploring new places, almost right in our back yard!

Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family, they might jump right in!!!!

Disclosure: We were given access to the premium features on this website to help ease our review. The views and opinions discussed above are solely of our own and are in no way, shape or form influenced by/from geocaching.com I absolutely love geocaching and wanted to tell everyone about it.

Favorite Geocache containers

There are so many different ways to make a geocache and so many different type containers to use. You don’t “have” to create a geocache but its fun when you do because it keeps the game alive.

In this post I am going to mention our favorite geocache containers that we have come across while out in the field (lol) that have been categorized as being our favorite. Now remember that everyone is different and what we like might not be something that someone else likes…So please just keep that in mind.

What-is-Geocaching?

  1.  Old Peanut Butter containers. Just wash them out good, maybe add a little camo tape to the container and label it Geocaching. We like these because they are easy to access/open, it keeps the stuff inside dry and its big enough to add some trackables and tradables
  2. Large and Medium pill containers. Now I like when the log books are inside these and the pill container is inside another container as it just seems to keep the log sheet dry. I have seen folks put out large pill containers or pee containers you get from clinics/hospitals, camo it and rig it up to the tree or wherever you decide to put it
  3. Lock and Lock containers. These are those little containers that snap on each side. They are easy to open and you can stick them just about anywhere.
  4. Pre made bird houses
  5. Build one from wood and put a container in it

And I am sure that we will add even more to the list once we explore new and exciting geocaches from different places in the world

Once you get out there and discover different geocache types, it will quickly show you which ones you like and which ones are harder to use or that don’t keep log books dry, etc…. Even sometimes the way you find the container can give you an idea on how you would like to hide yours.. Do you like being able to take the cache down completely or only having to unscrew the cap?

These are all questions to ask yourself before setting up your first geocache. That is why I think it’s so important to find a bunch of geocaches before making your own. Don’t be afraid to jump right in!

I hope these little suggestions have helped you in some way and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me!!!

Finding your very first Geocache

 

The following steps will guide you through finding your first ever geocache, unless you are lucky like we were and stumble upon your first one by accident.

What-is-Geocaching?

#1. Go to the GEOCACHING WEBSITE and make yourself a free account. While you are there, do some reading and learn your way around the website.
#2. Then you will want to download and install the app. You can type in geocaching in your store’s search bar
#3. On your phone, open the app, turn on your location so it knows where you are, then it will show you all the geocaches in your area. Your traditional caches will appear in green.
#4.Check the D/T, hints, pictures and comments from other geocachers that may help you on your way to the cache.
#5. Gear up and set out to find your first geocache. Follow your phone or enter the coördinates on your gps.
#6. The closer your get, the more the meters or feet gets lower on your phone or gps. You can even set up the app to send a notification when you are close to the cache’s hiding spot. Once you get that notification, stop and search around with the clues you know.
#7. Sign the log book, trade items or track your trackables
#8. Repeat steps 4-7

Enjoy and good luck!!!!

Always be careful and most importantly, have fun!!!

Things you may find in a Geocache

In this post, I put together a list of things that you could possibly find in a geocache. Now remember that you don’t always find these things, alot of the time it is just a log sheet to sign, but I guess it just all depends on the cache owner. If there is anything that I have forgotten please feel free to comment below.

So shall we get started?

  1.  There is almost always a Log Sheet, unless for some odd reason it was muggled, damp or something of the sort.
  2. Sometimes you are lucky and there is a pen/pencil in the geocache in the odd case that you forgot to bring yours. (I think I personally have come across more geocaches lacking a writing stick then I have seen equipped, so that is why it’s so important to bring your own pen
  3. Collectables – Which is basically a trackable item that geocachers can keep. You must still log it as taken so others dont go looking for that item in a cache and it already be gone.
  4. A trackable – Which is an item that you DO NOT keep. Trackables have specific destinations.. Simply log it and/or leave it. Or you can move it to a different cache.
  5. A tradable – This is an item that can be traded for another item of equal or better value. That is just how the game works 🙂 This is why its important to bring some with you while geocaching
  6. Geocoins and alot of other S.W.A.G (stuff we all get)
  7. Sometimes geocaches come in the form of a puzzle, postcards, and Earth caches. You never know what you’ll find. I have even seen people put gift cards for the first person to find it! How cool is that?

Well it’s not a HUGE list but it’s a start.

Don’t forget to share this post with your friends and family, they might jump right in!!!!

What’s In Your Geocaching Bag?

Now if you are new to geocaching, you probably won’t be thinking about having a geocaching bag but trust me, the more you go on, the more you will realize that it’s probably a good idea to carry a bag, because you never what you will need. It’s best to be well prepared!

I have made a list of stuff that would be best to take with you but not obligatory, these are totally optional and you may need something completely different then someone else, I suppose it all depends on how long you’re going, how far and what type of terrain will you encounter? Lots of questions to ask yourself when you are packing your geocaching bag.

 

This is just a list to get you started and it’s packed with some well used items..

  1. Bookbag/Small bag
  2. Tweezers (for small caches and sometimes to get the log book out)
  3. A pen or pencil
  4. Some little tradables
  5. Bottle of water and snacks
  6. G.P.S or geocaching app on your phone (and of course extra batteries for your GPS and charger for your phone)
  7. First aid kit (accidents happen)
  8. Flashlight (for caches in dark places)
  9. Hand wipes
  10. Trash bags/grocery bags (cito)
  11. A little something hard to write on as sometimes you don’t have a good surface to write on
  12. Camera to take beautiful pictures
  13. Extra log books (in case you come across a cache with a full or damaged log book
  14. Mini ziploc bags
  15. one or two extra pill containers for replacing damaged log containers
  16. Notepad (I do this) to keep track of the caches I found and what day and so on so that when I get home I can log it properly online 🙂

So there ya go, I hope this was helpful and like I mentioned these are totally optional (well except for bringing your own pen, this is 110% true) and it all depends on what & where you will be heading for that day

Geocaching: Why Get Premium?

In this post I am going to be talking about the reasons why I think Premium membership is well worth it. Of course the basic free membership is a great way to start off but I think the more you find, the more you are going to keep on wanting to find, so this is one of many reason.

Check out the list below:

 

  1. The first best reason to get Premium is because when you purchase that membership, you are supporting the geocaching community. It’s a huge part of what is keeping the game alive!!!
  2. With premium you have access to all the geocaches in the world and premium only caches.
  3. You can create and download lists and maps for offline usage.
  4. You also get full access to the GEOCACHING website and the geocaching app’s best features.
  5. Sort and filter through specific caches and find the ones that are the most convenient for you.
  6. You get to favorite that caches you love (you have to earn the favorite points so it’s kinda special when your geocache gets a favorite)
  7. You get notifications when new caches are available which is pretty awesome because that means you will have the chance to be the first to find a new geocache

All I can say is, try it for a month, it’s less than $10 and if you absolutely love it, then get it for the year! You wont regret it, I promise!!!

 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you give it a try

Geocaching Slang

Geocache Etiquette

Just like anything else in life, a little etiquette goes a long way. These are some common tips to take with you when you are out finding adventure while geocaching.

 

Remember that most of these are simply common sense and that you should always respect others while online and offline… And one last thing, don’t forget to HAVE FUN 🙂

Geocache-Etiquette

So here is the list that I put together. Hope you enjoy and if there’s anything I forgot to mention, please feel free to mention it below in the comment section!!!

 

  1. Trade Fairly (Equal or up)
  2. Learn about Trackables, Tradables and Travel Bugs before you set out so you will know what to do if you ever find one
  3. Log what you pick up/move/track
  4. Keep trackables and travel bugs moving to their destiny
  5. Respect the environment and the laws & regulations of the area
  6. Use your common sense (always) if it looks danger, don’t do it. If it says KEEP OUT or PRIVATE, do not trespass
  7.  Make sure to CITO when Geocaching. (Cache In Trash Out)
  8.  Put all geocaches back the way you found it (unless you can see it fell from its hiding spot, then you can replace it where it should go)
  9.  Notify the Cache owner if it needs any sort of maintenance
  10.  Always keep it family friendly and please no weapons/food or illegal items in the caches
  11.  As a cache owner, please keep up with your cache
  12. Beware of muggles (non-geocachers)
  13. Protect the integrity of the game
  14. And one last thing, ALWAYS bring a pen.. (trust me on this one haha)

I hope this list is clear and that you guys enjoy your geocaching experience. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me 🙂

Gluten Free Tuna Casserole

Imagine being on three food restrictive diets. Celiac, Diabetes and Renal diets doesn’t leave a person with too many options to choose from. My (J) diet mostly consists of rice and potatoes which have become a huge bore. I don’t eat tuna often but occasionally I do get a craving for it and if it’s not in a salad it’s in a gluten free tuna casserole. This allows me to eat pasta for a change since the only pasta I’ve been eating lately has involved lasagna.

Gluten-Free-Tuna-Casserole

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups uncooked gluten-free macaroni

  • 1 cup of your basic white sauce

  • Chicken bouillon for flavor

  • 1 can of tuna (drained)

  • 1-2 cups of cheese (depends on how cheesy you like it)

  • Gluten-free bread crumbs or cracker crumbs for crunch

Directions:

Cook macaroni. Drain well & set aside. Mix the chicken bouillon into the white sauce. Pour over macaroni. Add tuna. Mix well. Place in a casserole dish and cover with cheese. Sprinkle crumbs over the cheese for an added crunch and bake at 350 F for approximately 20 minutes. Broil on high for approximately 10 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.

AUKEY Miniature Portable Charger

We’ve all been there, you’re on an adventure & your phones battery is telling you to plug in the charger but you don’t have a wall plug available, you don’t have a car charger on hand or a plug that even works for that matter. AUKEY miniature portable charger comes in perfect when charging on-the-go is needed and doesn’t take up much space when in use.

AUKEY-Miniature-Portable-Charger

Some pretty cool features about this product include:

  • 5000mAh of backup USB charging power to fully charge your iPhone 7 1.5 times, or an iPhone 6s Plus or a Galaxy S7 once with a little power left to spare

  • Sleek cylindrical metallic aluminum external battery charger can be recharged with the Lightning cable you use to charge your iPhone

  • AiPower Charging Technology – Get the safest maximum recharge rate for all of your USB powered devices

AUKEY Earbuds with a Built-in Microphone

I (J) can’t tell you how many pairs of earbuds I’ve been through over the years. If it isn’t from them getting tangled up it’s because the wires start to fray causing them to short out! AUKEY earbuds with a built-in microphone are absolutely amazing. These earbuds are wired so you don’t have to worry about tangling as much and best of all, no fraying. I’m a huge music fan and I’m in love with the quality that these put out with noise reduction because I like to use music as an escape and that’s kind of hard when you can still hear everything going on around you. No joke, I don’t even have to have music going to hear less around me. Think of them as ear plugs. Yay for noise reduction!

Here are some awesome features that these earbuds have:

  • Noise-isolating in-ear headphones with a metal housing that deliver clear, rich sound

  • Delight in a seamless sound experience with soaring highs, warm mids, and pumping bass

  • Take hands-free calls. Play, pause, and skip tracks using the in-line remote with mic

  • 3 pairs of ear-tips/ear bud covers (S/M/L)

  • Carrying Pouch

  • User Manual

  • 24-Month Warranty Card

AUKEY-Earbuds-with-a-Built-in-Microphone

I really like the fact that I’m able to take hands-free calls with this product. The call was clear for the other person and they had no issues of it cutting out although I did experience a slight hissing noise on my end. This could be from the signal since we do live on a mountain or from my phone which has been dropped numerous times including in the tub! I’ll have to give it another try when I’m in town to see if it makes a difference and post an update. I also like that you can actually hear the bass from the music you’re playing. It’s not often that you can find that and pay a decent price but with AUKEY Canada you can! We definitely suggest that you check out the wide array of products that they have.

Painted Rock Craze

We’re not sure if you’ve heard about all of the painted rock craze that’s taken over since approximately May 2017 but this trend is in our area of Canada, the East Coast, and is spreading to other provinces as well as other countries. Which is totally awesome as the kids love to see people sharing pictures in Facebook groups of their rocks and where they’ve been relocated to. This wasn’t exactly something that us adults were into until our first adventure with the kids that is. Once we, the kids, found their first rock everyone was addicted to finding more.

Painted-Rock-Craze

Now, we’re not the best of artists but we started painting rocks with the kids to go hide as well. You take, you replace kind of thing. Plus it’s fun knowing that we’re bringing a smile to someone’s face because of our art work or because of a message written on a rock! Who knew that such a simple act could bring so much joy to so many people?

Painted-Rock-Craze

We absolutely love the idea of this as it gets people out with their kids while being active at the same time and you get to spend quality family time doing something fun. What’s to lose, right? So the next time you’re out for a walk at the park with the kids or just strolling through town to keep an eye out for painted rocks in your town. Trust us, you and your kids will love it!

Catch and Learn by PlaSmart

We love educational games. Making learning fun has got to be one of the greatest ideas in the world! We don’t know about you but when a subject/project is boring we lose interest pretty fast, as does the little one. Catch and Learn by PlaSmart is a fun educational game where kids fish for numbers, letters, words, math, whatever you decide. The Catch and Learn game comes with laminated fish shaped, magnetic dry erase cards, a dry erase marker and a magnetic fishing rod complete with a worm.

Catch-and-Learn by PlaSmart

The fact that there isn’t a specific theme to this game is awesome as you can use anything at all to help your child learn. From multiplication tables to the alphabet to even vocabulary, this educational game is definitely another winning product from PlaSmart in our eyes! Whether it’s a rainy indoor kind of day or a gorgeous sunny day, this game will keep the kids entertained and the bonus; there’s no water involved 😉

Vermicomposting Update

Wow, it’s been a while since we’ve posted. Sorry about that! I (J) came down with Pneumonia and was unfortunately hospitalized for a while because of it. While laying around waiting to get better I decided that it would be great to write a vermicomposting update about our red wigglers since it’s been a year that we’ve had them. Yup, a whole year and these little guys are as content as can be. Yay us!

Vermicomposting-Update

We love the fact that we’ve cut down a lot on our food waste/scraps since getting our red wigglers. It saves us from having to change the garbage as often as less waste goes into it as well as our recycling as the worms also eat cardboard, newspaper, trays from restaurants and more. These guys are totally awesome and we are extremely happy that we invested our money in them.

Vermicomposting-Update

We’ve cleaned our worm bin twice so far, once every 6 months, and we’ve received a 5 gallon ice cream bucket full of castings which have done a wonderful job of adding nutrients to our garden as we’ve been reworking the same area/dirt over the last few years to help make a nice nutrient rich area to grow our vegetables. The idea of knowing that the castings are an all natural fertilizer brings us piece of mind knowing that we aren’t eating chemicals! We love our red wigglers and the fabulous job they do. Definitely an investment worth thinking about.

Super Wings Review

When it comes to television we don’t watch it. We do however like to watch Vlogs and keep up with what’s going on in the land of .t.v.  as it’s always nice to have a few options to entertain the little one, lol. Since we don’t watch much television we were a bit unaware of Super Wings, a cartoon for kids. That is; Mommy and Daddy were unaware! The little one knew exactly what they were when we opened the box. He was some excited to be able to help with the Super Wings review that you’re currently reading and we were excited for the help because we all know that kids know way more than adults when it comes to .t.v. shows. We really like the fact that this show teaches kids about different ethnic backgrounds and cultural practices. Something that we were also unaware of until we had the opportunity to watch the advertisement. Check out the commercial below.

There are 12 different characters to collect, from planes to trucks to even a luggage cart that transform from their vehicle shape to robots. These are definitely cooler looking than the toys like this when we were younger! The quality is great and we didn’t have to worry about the toys breaking when they were being transformed. 

Super-Wings-Review

We really like the fact that there are different vehicles as well as the fact that they have female characters for the little girls that like planes too! We absolutely love these toys, their show and the storyline behind it. We definitely think that your little ones will love them as well. We also suggest checking out their show on Treehouse that comes on every day.

Reusing Plastic Grocery Bags

“”””Reusing Grocery Bags”””” from the stores.

I know that the better thing to do, is to bring your own reusable bag from home to the grocery store but the truth is, we all have these little plastic grocery bags end up in our homes. Well that is okay because I have put together a list of ideas you can use these bags for and by doing this it will keep them out of our landfills.

Great uses for reusing plastic grocery bags

1. Use as stuffing in the bottom of a gift bag
2. Recycling your recyclables
3. To donate stuff in
4. To bring returns back to the store
5. Use them for your wet clothes when you go swimming
6. Carry lunches to work or school or even on picnics
7. Put stinky diapers in them before putting it in the trash can
8. They make great garbages for the car or when you are travelling
9. Doggy poo bags
10. Putting streaks in your own hair
11. Changing the litter box or even lining the litter box with the bag
12. Use as a form of bubble wrap to store fragile items
13. Fill your patio cushions or pet beds with them
14. Sick bags, the clean up is easy
15. Line our paint tray with them for less mess
16. Use them as a disposable glove
17. Store your old rags in them under the sink
18. Boot liners in the winter to keep your feet dry
19. Cover your paint brushes with them so they don’t get hard
20. wrap around car mirrors in the winter so they don’t get full of ice
21. Wrap around your knees to save your pants in the garden
22. Use as a smock for smaller kids

And so much more. The possibilities are endless!!!

What do YOU use your extra bags for if you are a bag recycler?

Twozies; Better Two-gether

What’s cuter than babies and baby animals? Babies dressed as baby animals with adorable baby animal pets and Twozies are better two-gether. Get it, lol! Twozies are absolutely cute toy baby collectibles that are dressed as a specific pet. From seahorses to red pandas to everyday pets such as cats and dogs, these are definitely products that will make your heart fill with happiness as well as your child’s heart. They’ll truly enjoy how sweet and adorable Twozies are and with over 140 characters to collect the excitement will last. For a while anyways!

There’s a catch to these cuties though. The point is to find the matching pet to it’s owner or Twozie. This makes collecting them even more entertaining as you never know what pet or baby you’ll get. Will you find your match? There are plenty of products to choose from such as shops, strollers and more which we think are so cute!

Twozies;-Better-Two-getherKids will definitely enjoy trying to find/collect the matching babies and pet Twozies as well as playing with them of course. These are totally worth collecting. Even if it’s just to display the adorable toys in their shadowboxes. We think that these cuties will be a huge hit with kids.

Grossery Gang Mushy Slushie and Icky Pops Review

Have you ever heard of the Grossery Gang? These disgustingly adorable collectibles come in 150 characters of all sorts of gross designs like rotten milk, fuzzy pancakes and more. The little one has obviously seen commercials for these guys because he was super excited when he saw them in the box. We received the Grossery Gang Mushy Slushie from their First Delivery set and the Icky Pops from their Series 2 set. We really enjoyed learning about the rarity of these guys and enjoyed the differences between the characters. Some were soft and squishy, some were hard and others had a sticky feel to them. There were crates that came with them which at first we were a little unsure of hat to do with them other than display our Grossery Gang characters until we watched the video on their website which you can find below. It was cool to see that there was actually a game, so to speak, that we were able to play.

Since we didn’t know much regarding this toy we honestly thought that the Icky Pops were actual ice pops, lol. Upon opening the box we realized that they in fact were not real ice pops and were instead Grossery Gang collectibles. Phew! I think the little one would have been doing the taste testing if that were the case, sorry to say! We have to say that despite looking and sounding gross, these guys are pretty adorable and have made a nice addition to the little ones shelves.

Grossery-Gang-Mushy-Slushie-and-Icky-Pops-Review

The Mushy Slushie is a container that looks like a slush cup and is a great place to store your Grossery Gang characters that aren’t on display and it even has a fake straw that attaches to the lid. Inside we found a few new members of the gang as well some that were encased in fake ice cubes such as a spider, a fly and more insects. This was great as it added to the “slushie” theme. We truly and honestly enjoy playing with these guys and make it a habit to pick up a character here and there in hopes of collecting all 150.

Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness

April is organ and tissue donation awareness month which is something that is very important to us here at Frugal Canadian Coupon Mom. If it weren’t for organ donors I (J) wouldn’t have the opportunity of not being a type 1 diabetic anymore after 29 years of living with it and I wouldn’t have the opportunity to prolong my life with a kidney transplant. I’m extremely grateful for those that take the time to think it over and sign their donor cards. Because of them, I have a second chance at a healthier life as do many people worldwide! 

Organ-and-Tissue-Donation-Awareness

As many of you know, I received the call for my organ transplants in October of 2016. For reasons beyond my control, the surgery wasn’t possible. You can read more about that HERE on my campaign page if you’re interested. While I’m still active on the list, many people are active as well and sadly, many of them never get the organ/organs that they need to live. During my stay in the hospital after the non-transplants, I was informed that there are very few people signing their donor cards these days therefore making finding a matching donor even harder to do.

Organ-and-Tissue-Donation-Awareness

It was a little disappointing to hear to say the least. Why wouldn’t a person want to help another human being who’s life they could change with a simple signature saying I want my organs to go to someone who has a chance at life? If I was able to donate my organs, I absolutely would. Knowing that I can help save more than one person after my death by allowing my organs to be donated would be an honor. Unfortunately, I’m unable to donate because of my health but many of you are able to and should think about it and speak to your loved ones.
If you’re uncertain or wish to know more information about blood, tissue and organ donation please visit the government on Canada’s website HERE.
