Green Speak: Coke Turns White for Their Beloved Polar Bears

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

Tomorrow, instead of finding the signature red Coca-Cola can sitting on the shelf, you'll find a white one. A white can reminding you to help the polar bears, the cute friends that has graced the Coca-Cola can since 1992. Together with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Coca-Cola is working to educate the public and raise money to help save the Arctic.

To conserve the polar bears' environment, Coca-Cola has pledged to give $3 million and is asking people to text in donations. During the holiday season, 1.4 million white cans will be made by Coca-Cola. The company is also expanding their reach by creating a film to tel the story of the polar bear and its shirking environment. TO learn more about the video and other ways Coca-Cola is helping the polar bears, visit ArcticHome.com.

Photo Friday: Mommy Love

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

Out in the pasture on a windy Kansas day, one of the new, fuzzy babies feels a nudge in the head from her mom, Maud. It's a loving, friendly nudge though. Maud likes the attention she gets when people come visit, and Cole, Maggie and I definitely gave them some attention. Maggie even rode one of the other donkeys.

My parents actually have two of these little guys though, and ten donkeys in total. Yes, that is a bunch, or rather a pace or herd. So, if you are interested in one, they have one for you. They are looking to sell a few young ones. . . .

What happens when you decide to follow God and work with teenagers? Ask Janice Lundquist, she would know.

I didn’t take her up on that exact question more than four years ago when I interviewed her for this short little piece for my composition class, but I am sure she has some great stories to tell about how God has been using her life to meet teenagers where they are. . . .
