Day 13 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

 

Day 13- 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

This was taken in our close  – ish Neighbours front lawn. Everything is big in Texas .

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate David Vige to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

Day 4 – video is a bit dark as had just finished Yoga and the lights were dimmed. My yoga teacher kindly videoed and did the countdown for me. Thank you Mahani.

Today I nominate my friend Kate Koshel to take the challenge.

Saving Tip For Today – 08/29/2012


The Bank “Swipe Fee”

I was amazed at this piece of information. In my opinion banks never miss a beat  to rip some money off you.  As you can imagine banks are not my favorite institution.

Did you know when you charge charitable donations to your credit card, the bank “Swipe Fee” may be 3 percent. Debit cards and PayPal take a smaller cut.  Capital One offers fee-free donations to nonprofits on its Giving Site. Good for you ‘Capital One‘.  Alternatively send a check.
