HP Mini Notebook Computer & Printer Bundle Giveaway @ Jolly Mom!

"What are you or will you be doing in 2010 to create change and how will winning this technology bundle help your efforts?"
What a loaded question! I have been attempting to do so much for change in 2010! I am a college student, and in the past I have been lazy, and somewhat self centered! I am going into the major of Birth through Kindergarten Education, and I love children! They are and always have been my passion! In 2010, I made the resolution to help people out, volunteer more, and be more aware of the help others need. I have currently volunteered at two schools in my area. One of the classrooms was for children with Disabilities, and one was for children At Risk for family problems and learning problems. I have a full load of courses at the college I attend, but I have desperately been trying to help people. I want to blog more; and perhaps get people interested in situations occurring in our world today! One of the major problems I have undergone deals with a friend from school. She had Leukemia as a child, and is doing a fundraiser with the St. Baldrick's Day foundation where she will be shaving her head in a month and a half. I have been trying to help her raise funds for her goal! I have also worked at the Ronald McDonald house, making meals for families with children in the hospital at a young age. I think that this bundle would help me by allowing me to get in touch with more people, as well as make flyers, etc. to put up around my college campus to help spread the word! :)

Recently, HP launched their Create Change campaign, which gives 4% of each purchase made at the HP Direct Store to one of seven charities.  Customers can choose to donate to CARE, the American Red Cross, DonorsChoose.org, Junior Achievement, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Susan G. Komen, and the World Wildlife Fund. I think this is such a wonderful initiative by HP that gives the consumer an easy way to help others. As HP says, "Don't just buy a computer, support a worthy cause."As part of HP’s Create Change program, they’d like to hear stories about how individuals and technology are creating change in the world. I have personally seen technology, the internet, and social media do amazing things. You can raise money, uplift families, raise awareness, change laws, connect moms, make lasting friendships, and make a statement through the power of the internet and social media. HP wants to know what you are or will be doing in 2010 to create change? And, thanks to HP I have an amazing giveaway for you guys! One Jolly Mom reader will win a HP Mini 311 Notebook PC and HP Touchsmart Premium Printer bundle {pictured below}!

Undisturbed by Life

It's the new year; and I've decided to begin writing a blog. I used to write this on Xanga, back when I was, oh..12/13 years old. Giggle..thinking back on all of the crazy (and normally stupid) things I used to write about. I think it will be a good experience for me to blog and make a hobby; considering I'm going into my second semester of my sophomore in college year. So much stress. So many issues. This will be my outlet.
If anyone chooses to read this; you can expect a bunch of random posts, until I find my calling on what to blog about :)
Any suggestions on what kind of blog this should be?
