NOVEMBER FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (November 13 – November 15, 2015)

For those of you who took your kid’s out trick or treating… How did your kid’s make out? Any good snacks in those bags?

My kids lasted a total of 10 minutes outside on our street and then came in wanting to hand out candy. I literally ate their candy bowl in 5 days! I felt so sick. It is me who ends up suffering.

Now we can look forward to preparing for the Winter Holidays :)

SOME COOL NEWS!

Yesterday, I did a taping for a Television show called IN THE KNOW on ROGERS TV.
The show is a 30 minute show and I went on to talk about Entertain Kids On A Dime (my website and this Facebook group)!
I brought in my oldest child Brooklyn (who is 5) and we did crafts and talked about tips on saving for this holiday season.

I was thankful to meet Julia Suppa (the host of the show) who is an Entertain Kids On A Dime reader.

I was so nervous, because the taping is LIVE. No retakes! Brooklyn on the other hand was a natural. She was excited to tell the kids at school that she was on TV.

The episode will be airing in about 3 weeks and I will remind everyone who wants to tune in the time and channel!

Thanks for Supporting Entertain Kids :)

Canadian Master Illusionist DARCY OAKE at the Sony Centre THIS Saturday!
This Saturday November14, Canadian Master Illusionist Darcy Oake performs at the Sony Centre in Toronto. His EDGE OF REALITY show is truly amazing and a perfect family event for kids ages 8+, or (better yet) make it a date night!

Darcy is an amazing master illusionist and sleight-of-hand artist from Winnipeg and he took Europe and the UK by storm last year and became a global sensation by being a top ten finalist on Britain’s Got Talent.

A YouTube clip showing Oake making doves seemingly appear out of nowhere, has garnered more than 52.5 million views alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPmPp2K0zpI

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

The Hearing has been posted-poned yet again NOVEMBER 26TH!

This gives us MORE TIME to get MORE SIGNATURES!

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!
