RBaby Foundation

Being an advocate for your child during an emergency situation can have a significant impact on the overall outcome. Unfortunately, most parents do not know that many ERs nationwide are not prepared to deal with pediatric emergencies. No matter where you are in the US, with the touch of a screen the findERnow app quickly identifies the closest emergency rooms more likely to be prepared to treat children.

Girl Scouts Lifetime of Leadership

At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!” as girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. And with more than 60 million other G.I.R.L.s to cheer them on every step of the way, there’s no limit to what they can—and will—accomplish. In fact, being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways. As a Girl Scout, she: Develops a strong sense of self, Displays positive values, Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks, Forms and maintains healthy relationships,  Learns to identify and solve problems in her community. Get Started Today! With Girl Scouts, she’ll do more than she ever thought she could, dream bigger than she ever imagined, and—oh, yeah—change the world, for herself and for others!
