Holiday Wishes Come True for Kids of Stanford Home

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2008

Hundreds of Sacramento children and families had a brighter holiday season due to some spirited holiday givers. Each year Stanford Home for Children receives hundreds of requests for holiday help from its clients. From gifts to holiday trees and meals, kind-hearted Sacramento area businesses and individuals ensure that the children and families served by Stanford Home have a happy and healthy holiday season each year.

“It was amazing to see the generosity of our community,” said Keith Diederich, Executive Director of Stanford Home for Children. “Sometimes I don’t know who enjoys the program more, our clients or our donors.”

Thousands of gifts were donated this year and subsequently gift wrapped by an army of over one hundred volunteers, including Assemblyman Roger Niello and the Sacramento Kings Dancers. Each year a warehouse at McClellan Business Park is donated and turned into a virtual winter wonderland where the process is carried out. “You should see the children’s faces when we deliver these gifts,” said Patrica Gooden of Stanford Home’s Community Protection & Treatment Program. “Their smiles light up the entire room.”

Without the generosity of the donors of Stanford Home for Children, many of these families would go without holiday cheer. Stanford Home donors also provide vital funds for programs that provide vocational services to children aging out of the foster care system, as well as find safe, biological family for children lost in the child welfare system.

About Stanford Home for Children

Online Luxury Kids Boutique, LilSophisticate.com, Opens Just in Time for Holiday Shopping


Flat Rock, NC (PRWEB) October 16, 2008

The newly launched upscale online retail boutique, LilSophisticate.com, a division of the niche market specialist, SophistaStyle, LLC, opened its doors to online shoppers this week just prior to what many retailers consider the start of the holiday shopping season.

“The LilSophisticate.com tag line says it all,” Lacie Trujillo, SophistaStyle Co-Owner, said. “We are all about ‘Pint Size Luxury.'”

“We have the most stunning boutique style products for children that you just can’t find in regular shopping venues and malls,” Trujillo said. “And we feel strongly the luxury market will continue to flourish, especially, this holiday season.”

SophistaStyle Co-Owner Monica Hall, agreed but added that not only are the products unique and fun but the shopping experience on LilSophisticate.com is unlike any other online shopping experience. “When you are on the site, you just don’t want to leave,” she said. “You want to keep browsing because it’s so beautiful and feels very luxurious.”

With products like fairy tale luxury playhouses that rival Cinderella’s castle, Hall and Trujillo both say that once the inspiration hit for the online boutique, they simply ran with it and everything fell into place. The result? An unparalleled product offering that includes custom built and one-of-a-kind luxury items for kids. “There simply isn’t anything out there like this, Hall said. “You really do have to see it to believe it.”

This mother-daughter team is dedicated to sourcing items that have a certain appeal to parents and grandparents who want only the best for their children. Items that appeal to the sense of touch, like children’s bedding that has only the highest of thread counts and feels like silk and envelops a child in warmth as well as items that appeal to the sense of wealth, prestige and royalty like the Diamond Encrusted Pacifier or the Swarovski Crystal Palace Pacifier Setthese all carry the “wow factor” and that, Trujillo says, is what really pulls people in.

Boutique shopping is unlike regular shopping, according to Trujillo. “Shoppers expect a certain type of product that can’t be found just anywhere. And, there has to be an emotional connection with the whole experience of shopping in a boutique.”

“Our goal is to provide customers with an experience that is personal to them and they can rest assured knowing that they are getting the exceptional service and attention to their needs,” Hall said. “We’ve added some really special touches and promotions that give shoppers the ability to interact with us.”

The “kid quote” contest, for example, gives online shoppers the ability to enter short quotes that they remember their children saying that are profound, funny or cute. The quotes are displayed on the site and the winner receives a very generous $ 500 gift card to shop on LilSophiticate.com.

Hall and Trujillo agreed that all shoppers are welcome at LilSophisticate.com regardless of income level. “Worst case scenario is that you’ll get great design ideas,” Hall said. “But I bet you’ll find something you just can’t live without.”

Vanessa Williams Urges Parents and Teens to Give Each Other the Ultimate Holiday Gift an “Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract” : “Ugly Betty” Star and Her Teenage Son Sign a Driving Contract, Launching Allstate’s National Home for the Holidays Teen Safe Driving Campaign


NORTHBROOK, Ill. (PRWEB) December 2, 2008

They’re giving each other a conversation and a promise. And best of all, it’s free.

With Devin on the verge of getting his learner’s permit, Ms. Williams and her son are signing an Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract before he gets behind the wheel. Based on conversations they had at home, their contract lays out expectations for smart driving decisions, and consequences if those expectations are not met.

It’s a conversation Ms. Williams and Allstate hope all parents and their teens have this holiday season.

“As a mother of two older daughters, I’ve given them the car keys and worried whether they would make it home safe. The fact is that our teens are more likely to die in a car crash than from anything else, so having the safe driving talk with your teen is just as important as talking about drugs and sex,” Williams said. “As the holidays arrive, parents and teens should use the Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract as way to begin a conversation that can be a gift of life.”

Vanessa and Devin signed their contract in New York City today, publicly launching Allstate’s national Home for the Holidays teen safe driving campaign.

Through its national Parent-Teen Driving Contract Sign Up Drive, Allstate encourages parents and teens to begin a conversation with their teens about safe driving by completing the interactive contract online at http://www.allstate.com/teen. By completing and signing a contract, parents can help ensure their teens return home safely for the holidays and every day.

With car crashes the leading cause of death for American teens, it’s a vital conversation for parents and teens especially this time of year. Teens have an increased chance of getting into an accident around the holidays. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, last December alone, nearly 400 teens died in car crashes across the United States. Many of these crashes could have been avoided with a simple conversation at home.

“By putting the contract in as many parent’s hands as possible, we hope to inspire them to give their teen the most important gift of all the safe driving talk,” said Vicky Dinges, Assistant Vice President of Public Social Responsibility for Allstate. “Signing the Allstate Parent-Teen Driving Contract is the first step to making a commitment between parents and teens that they aren’t going to let themselves become a statistic.”

As part of the campaign, Allstate is also conducting contract signings with other prominent parents and their teens in cities across the country, hoping that more parents and teens heed this important call. This is part of Allstate’s tradition of public advocacy aimed at reducing the number of teens killed on America’s roads each year.

“As a company dedicated to reinventing protection and retirement for American families, doing whatever we can to avert the tragedy of losing a child is something we must take on,” Dinges said.

Pandora Corp. Announces PC Pandora Free Holiday Giveaway


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2008

Most people will tell you that nothing in life is free. “Everything has a price,” as the saying goes. But for the holidays, Pandora Corp. is changing the rules. Beginning at 12:01 AM on December 25th, and through New Years Day, the company will be giving away its signature computer monitoring software, PC Pandora, absolutely free.

“The economy is making the holidays difficult for a lot of folks this year,” explains Pandora Corp. co-founder James Leasure. “Parents will probably dig deeper this year to make the kids and family happy, especially if they are planning to buy a new PC for the household. We want to make sure that kids using those PCs stay safe online, and so we’re helping parents get the best safety tools for free.”

Starting Christmas morning, parents can visit http://www.pcpandora.com and use the code PCPANDORAHOLIDAY to get the current PC Pandora version 5.2 absolutely free as a download. The giveaway will last until 11:59 PM on January 1, 2009, or until 50,000 units have been given away. There are no strings attached; in fact, there is even an incentive: parents who take advantage of the giveaway will be given an e-coupon to use on the next release of the software.

In early 2009, Pandora Corp. will be releasing PC Pandora 6.0. The new version will contain standard upgrades and modifications plus many important new features including the optional Pandora LIVE, a web-based subscription service that will allow near real-time monitoring, as well as the ability to change or modify settings remotely. Leasure says he hopes that people find the software essential enough to come back and take a look at the new version.

“Internet safety can’t be put on the back burner, so we’re going to give our software away now when many people are telling us that they simply can’t afford discretionary spending,” says Leasure. “We want parents to see how incredibly efficient our program is and what a powerful tool it can be in 21st century parenting. Of course, our hope is that these families will remain loyal customers once the economy turns around, but even if not, it’s critical that parents understand what’s happening online.”

PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all activity on a computer. The program’s first-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the screen, thus allowing parents to see first-hand everything their child does both on and offline. Further details of user activity are made available in text-based files, including instant messenger chats, emails sent and received, websites visited, peer-2-peer files shared, keystrokes logged, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more. The IRIS feature will even send those text-based files right to a parent’s email – invaluable for working moms and dads who can’t always be home when the kids are online.

Leasure says the ways that computer monitoring software can help parents are so numerous they often don’t consider all of them. “If your child is visiting websites you don’t approve of, talking to strangers on social networks, creating and maintaining multiple social network profiles, downloading illegal music and movies, or falling victim to or – even worse – acting as a cyberbully, you will know about it if you are monitoring their internet activity.”

Typical filters and standard blocks are easy for savvy young users to circumnavigate, “But if you have computer monitoring software like PC Pandora,” explains Leasure, “you’ll know what your children are doing and be able to act appropriately.”

While almost every home in America with kids contains a computer, not everyone can spend the extra money on the protection they need right now. “The bottom line is keeping kids safe online,” states Leasure. “Our Christmas gift to parents this year is giving them the tools they need to do just that.”

Visit http://www.pcpandora.com between Christmas and New Year’s Day and use the code PCPANDORAHOLIDAY at checkout to get your copy of PC Pandora for free.

About PC Pandora:

Pandora Corporation was formed with one goal – to help our customers monitor, control and protect their families and themselves online. First released in mid 2005, PC Pandora has been constantly upgraded to industry-leading specifications and has received accolades from users, reviewers and even school districts and law enforcement agencies, who use the program to help in the day-to-day supervision of the children and citizens they are charged with protecting. The company website devotes space to helping parents by providing them with 18 Tips to Safe Surfing and Pandora’s Blog, where current news in the world of online safety is discussed regularly. PC Pandora has vaulted into a leadership position for parental control software by boasting a combination of features that are unparalleled in the monitoring industry. In February 2008, Version 5.0 was released, again widening the spectrum of coverage and protection offered by the program. In addition, through the company’s SAFE SCHOOLS program, schools and school districts can receive up to $ 100,000 worth of software to aid in protecting their students and their PCs. PC Pandora is also now available through the Pandora Corp. store at Amazon.com.

Travel Insured Offers Tips for Affordable Family Holiday Travel: Ship Gifts Free; Avoid Fare Surcharges, Save with “Kids Are Free” Trip Insurance


East Hartford, CT (Vocus) October 21, 2010

Travel Insured International, a leading third-party travel insurer, reminds family budget managers dealing with the challenging economy of 2010 that careful advance planning can make the difference between renewing a family travel tradition during this holiday season or staying home. Whether the preferred family gathering place for a year-end holiday is a relative’s or friend’s home, a festive city hotel, or a family resort, the trip planner who takes calculated steps to avoid overpayment for travel necessities can help make the celebration affordable instead of impossible.

The popular consumer airfare shopping website FareCompare.com publishes valuable advice on when to fly. It includes a dating chart listing surcharges that are built into airfares on different holiday season dates, with the extra costs matched among six competing U.S. carriers. The Fare Compare research reveals that Thanksgiving and Christmas Day have no peak airfare surcharges, unlike most days in the season that carry $ 10 to $ 30 surcharges each way. New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are almost as good, with $ 10 surcharges each day. The most expensive $ 30 per ticket fare surcharges this year are on Nov. 28 and 29, the Sunday and Monday after Thanksgiving; on Thursday, Nov. 23; and on Jan. 2-3, 2011, the Sunday and Monday after New Year’s. There are no fare surcharges for those who can fly prior to Nov. 19, or between Nov. 30 and Dec. 16, or after Jan. 3. Attentive family budget managers will note the potential difference between flying with no surcharges or flying with $ 30 surcharges can be $ 60 per roundtrip ticket per family member.

Families can save additional costs on their outbound flights to the holiday gathering by purchasing gifts through the numerous online shopping services that will ship gifts ahead for free. Combined with organized packing to limit members to one carry-on bag each, families can avoid airline baggage fees ranging from $ 15 to $ 20 to $ 25 for their first checked bag, and more for a second or third bag. Several travel sites publish baggage fee charts for domestic and international airlines that are easy to find. At least one popular domestic airline advertises its bags fly free policy, a best opportunity for avoiding this travel cost.

Kids Are Free

When saving money by planning ahead on family holiday travel, a prudent parent will seek to protect the family’s travel budget against Trip Cancellation or Trip Delay caused by unforeseen disruptions. For most families a sudden childhood illness, or one unwelcome winter storm can be enough to either force a holiday trip cancellation or cause lengthy delays and unforeseen expenses for food and lodging.

The affordable way to avoid both disappointment and lost prepaid trip costs is one of three types of Worldwide Trip Protector Plans from Travel Insured that include Kids Are Free coverage for one or more children under 18 traveling with their related adult. Families on the Worldwide Trip Protector comprehensive plan receive free coverage for all kids under 18 insured with their primary adult. Families on the budget-priced Trip Protector Lite or Trip Protector Lite Expanded plan receive free coverage for one child under 18 for each related adult enrolled on the plan and traveling with the child. All three types of plans include Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Trip Delay, Baggage Loss and Delay, among other coverage. Common Carrier Accident insurance, Renter’s Collision Insurance, and even Sports Coverage to protect against ski equipment delays or contact sports injuries are available options in all three plans.

Keeping the family’s holiday travel celebration on the calendar in a struggling 2010 economy is still affordable with some educated advance travel planning. Don’t forget to protect prepaid family plans, however, so that if the worst happens the celebration can still be rescheduled when the holidays are over.

Hartford, CT, was founded in 1994 by the foresight of insurance industry executive Peter Gehris when he acquired the travel protection division of the Travelers Insurance Company.

Pandora Corp. To Parents: Protect Those New PCs (This Holiday Season)


Las Vegas, Nevada (Vocus/PRWEB) November 26, 2010

Our kids live digitally. Every parent knows that. With the holidays around the corner, and this years wishlists topped with dreams of cell phones, MP3 players, and computers, a lot of high-tech toys are sure to be unwrapped this December.

And though many experts warn against giving a child their own computer, times have changed. A teenager having their own PC is an unavoidable reality now, due to the amount of school work requiring a computer and increased pressure from peers to be socially active online.

What parents tend to forget is that these high tech toys are really for adults, explains Manuel Coats, co-founder of Pandora Corp. A computer that can connect to the Internet can connect your child with the rest of the world and vice versa. Thats not something that should be handed over lightly to your kids.

Pandora Corp., makers of PC Pandora monitoring software, is reminding parents to be smart when giving teens and even younger children their own PC this holiday season. Parents must adopt and enforce a new set of rules, such as leaving the door open and a no Internet after __ time. Also, visiting a childs room often when they are online and asking them questions about what websites they are visiting and who their online friends are needs to become standard family practice.

As you get ready to give them the big gift this year, make sure it is outfitted with the proper parental control software, says Coats. Tools like our PC Pandora make it easy to find that safe, happy medium between teens being able to freely use the Internet socially, and parents not being left in the dark about their childs online activity.

PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all user activity on a computer. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the screen, allowing parents to see first-hand everything their child does both on and offline. Further details of user activity are made available in text-based files and easy-to-read charts, including websites visited, instant messenger chats, emails sent and received, peer-2-peer files shared, keystrokes logged, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more. The IRIS feature will send those text-based files right to a parents email, and the PC Pandora LIVE! add-on allows parents to check screenshots and adjust parental controls though a secure web login an invaluable feature for working parents who cant always be home when their kids are online.

PC Pandora is essentially a DVR for your childs computer, says Coats. If your child is talking to strangers on social networks, creating and maintaining multiple social network profiles, visiting websites you dont approve of, downloading illegal music and movies, or falling victim to or even worse acting as a cyberbully, you will know about it if you are monitoring their internet activity.

As a special promotion for the holidays, the company is offering the software at a discounted price. Parents can use the code holiday2010 at the pcpandora.com store to get $ 20 off their purchase.

Kuoni Report Shows How Different British Holidaymakers Behave When on Holiday

(PRWEB) February 25, 2011

Kuoni, the luxury tour operator, has published its latest report on how different British holidaymakers behave abroad, with revealing some results.

According to the survey, Liverpudlians have more sex on holiday, Londoners most dislike body odour, holidaymakers from Sheffield buy the most new clothes for their holidays, child-free couples fret over litter and Brummies abstain from drinking alcohol.

The Kuoni Holiday Report 2011 (http://www.kuoni.co.uk/en/services/about_kuoni/news/press_releases/holiday-report-2011/pages/holidayreport2011.aspx ) is part of the company’s strategy of getting closer to its customers by understanding them better. The report looks at behaviour before, during and after a holiday, including eating and spending preferences, manners, etiquette, holiday romance and sexual habits.

Despite the regional variations highlighted throughout the report, what unifies the research is how different British holidaymakers behave when on holiday. Escaping from their every day routines, the Brits discard their regular persona and eat less healthily, exercise less, drink more, dress more provocatively, expect more sex and in more adventurous places and spend more money.

In short, Brits lose their inhibitions on holiday, whether aged 25 or 65. Over half do things out of character such as drink more alcohol – and feel liberated by the fact that no-one knows who they are.

Christine Webber, psychotherapist and health writer and broadcaster, said:

“Times are really tough for most people in the UK at the moment, so its a small wonder that people want to let off steam on holiday.

“It’s particularly interesting to me that some respondents actually enjoy adopting a whole new persona on holiday. It’s as if they’re conducting an experiment, which might lead to real change at a later date. In the midst of our busy lives, we often fantasise about embracing a completely different lifestyle, or becoming a different sort of person, and it seems as if holidays allow us to flirt with the sort of changes we dream about.

“Luxury holidays (http://www.kuoni.co.uk/en/pages/default.aspx ) are great times to reconnect with the person we love, and to remind each other of the importance of romance and closeness.

“Many of us have no option but to work flat-out these days if we are to hold onto our jobs. But this can turn us into dull, stressed-out, irritable and terribly tired individuals. By taking a holiday, we restore balance and sanity into our lives. We have time to think and we have time to just chill.”

The full report is available from http://www.kuoni.co.uk/holidayreport

About Kuoni:

Kuoni is ABTA and ATOL protected, giving customers financial protection and ensuring they won’t be stranded abroad. Customers are safe in the knowledge that while they are abroad, Kuoni have professional ground agents and English speaking guides to ensure they have an enjoyable stay.

Kuoni offers luxury holidays in a number of beautiful locations,

including a range of all inclusive Maldives holidays (http://www.kuoni.co.uk/en/holiday/indian-ocean/maldives/pages/default.aspx ) and Kenya safaris (http://www.kuoni.co.uk/en/inspiration/type/safari_outdoor_nature/safari/africa/kenya/pages/default.aspx ) as well as a host of memorable experiences such as brewing coffee at ancient Brazilian fazendas, tracking chimpanzees in the wilds of Tanzania and salsa dancing in Havana.

This Halloween season, Bryant Security will kick up their patrolling in malls, schools and at events-to give the community an added feeling of safety.
