Acorns allows you to "Round Up" and invest your spare change every time you make a purchase using a linked card. Set up an Acorns account and link a card. When you make a purchase using your linked cards, Acorns will round up that purchase to the next even dollar amount. That rounded up money will then be invested by Acorns in the stock market. Spend $8.15 on lunch and you will then automatically invest another 85¢ with your Acorns account. Buy a cookie for $1.98 and you will add 2¢ to Acorns. You can easily balance your checkbook when all of your purchases are in even dollar amounts. And when you start out with small tiny acorns, you can end up with a forest of mighty oak trees!
Sign up with Acorns using these links and you can get $5.00 to start out your investing journey!
Have you heard about dōTERRA essential oils? These are strong aromatic and fragrant oils extracted from various plants, each with a unique set of uses and benefits. The familiar smell of a blooming rose or the distinct odor of cedar wood are made possible by the fragrant essential oils hidden deep within those plants.
Characterizing these oils as “essential” is not meant to define them as somehow indispensable or required to bring about a certain end result, but rather “essential” in that they contain the essence of characteristic fragrances – many of which are quite familiar to all of us. Pleasantly fragrant, it is not hard to understand why so many perfumes, soaps, incense, cleaning products, and flavor enhancers obtain their scent or taste from essential oils. However, many might easily overlook the hidden wellness and therapeutic benefits derived from essential oils.
Many aches and pains may be eased with the topical application of certain essential oil blends. The stresses and anxieties of everyday life may melt away by diffusing other essential oil blends. Essential oils may stimulate hair growth, soothe allergic reactions, or boost bodily immunity systems. This is only the tip of the iceberg and the possibilities are endless.
dōTERRA is a world renowned leader in essential oils, extracting thousands of essential oils from their plant based sources and carefully mixing them together in just the right proportions to create the perfect blend for whatever ails you. Follow the links throughout this description to read more about the dōTERRA blends and all of the things made possible through their unique line of products. Informative videos and comprehensive product descriptions are available. With popular blends such as Serenity, Balance, and Breathe (just to name a few), your wellness and better centering are just one click away!
Human Trafficking Awareness
TraffickCam is a fantastic app that everyone should have on their phone. If you ever travel and stay in a hotel, you MUST have this app on your phone and use it! Take a few photos of your hotel room and provide a little bit of information about where you are staying. TraffickCam uses those photos of the room, carpet, and decor to compare to known photographs circulating through the sex trafficking trade (most of which are taken of the young women enslaved in this horrific existence in hotel rooms throughout the country). By comparing your room photos to the trafficking photos, TraffickCam is able to match up locations and help authorities get one step closer to liberating some young girl trapped in this trade and bring her captors to justice. Download TraffickCam today and use it every time you visit a hotel room. You may never know if you've helped anyone, but collectively, we can all make a difference.

WheresGeorge? is a web site where you can log and track the paper currency that you spend in your daily activities. One strict site rule is that the bills must be naturally circulated and entered by other users independently. You can’t mail the bill to your cousin in another time zone just to get a long distance hit. Registered users track their milestone hits to cover all 50 states or in all the counties of a single state, or even international hits! There is great community interaction in the forums. “Georging” is an addictive study in currency circulation!
