I just came across an awesome, new (well, new to me!) site called Save1. It is kind of like ebates and shopathome, except when someone shops from Save1 to save money, they also provide a healthy meal to a malnourished child through one of their non-profit feeding partners. How cool is that? So you can save money and do something good Since launching in October 2012, they have provided more than 100,000 meals. WOW!

I got a facebook message from reader, Amber, asking if we could all vote for her former High School teacher who is currently up for a National Teacher’s prize on the Live with Kelly show. Voting ends tomorrow. The teacher’s name is Wendy Martin. CLICK HERE to vote.
Here is the message Amber wrote, “I know this is out of the realm of couponing, but you have such a strong female voice and a large fanbase of smart, financially independent women, I thought I’d send a message. I’m seven years out of high school this month. I have graduated from college once, and will again next spring with a teaching license. This is in part due to a team of amazing women from my former high school. One of which is a science teacher, specifically biology and anatomy. She is a beautiful woman who inspires girls to pursue math and science. She runs two blood drives a year, that break donation records, and that says a lot when the school has 400 students versus the 2000 of other area high schools. She organizes donation drives for battered women’s shelters, and cleanups of city parks and highways, and pollution studies on the river. Several years ago, her three-year-old son lost his arm in a lawnmower accident and had to fight for his life. She came back to school that fall and used her personal story as inspiration to increase blood drive donations. Wendy Martin is currently up for a national teacher’s prize on the Live with Kelly show. Voting ends tomorrow. I would just love if you would post the link, maybe under your good deed of the day category? She absolutely deserves the award. Thanks Natasha for your time and all the wonderful coupon deals you post. Definitely helps this little college lady out!”
So I woke up to this email in my inbox this morning. This is from a friend of a friend, Kristin, (I have had correspondence with her in the past, and know this is a legitimate individual) who is also huge fan of One Frugal Chick,
I hope that you don’t mind me emailing you. My best friend who is originally from NJ, in August had moved out to Ohio. She has 2 daughters (Olivia who is 5 and Charlotte who is 2.5 and a baby boy on the way). About three weeks ago, she came home to their house on fire. She and her family lost everything including their 4 dogs and 2 cats. I get goosebumps when I even type it.
Needless to say—they need everything. As I would like to give them the world, I have been searching for ways that I can help and have been using your site everyday to try to collect things for them. I thought to maybe drop you an email to not only let you know once again how much I use it but I also I know that you have a really wide fan base and at this point—they need all of the help that they can get.”
I have since talked with her and have many more details about the family. If you would like to help you can donate $ on their website http://helpsarahandandy.com/
or if you would like to send a package (that’s what I’ll be doing!)- possibly some of your stock pile
please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the mailing info and also email you with some more detailed info about the family. Seems like this family could really use the help!
If you can’t give anything but would like to send some nice thoughts/prayers via email as well, I can forward that along too

Hi all, I have a favor to ask. This is for a blogging buddy of mine, Shari. Shari got me into blogging inadvertently because I once worked for her husband and she was then running one blog Spearmintbaby.com. She now runs 4 blogs! I had some down time at the job and decided I would give blogging a try. Fast forward 3 1/2 years later and I now run 2 blogs. I am also a contributing editor to Spearmint Baby (I post on Mondays). Recently Shari & her family have been through a lot. Her husband was in a very bad accident before the New Year and was in the hospital for a month and a half. He finally came home around Valentine’s day If you could, please CLICK HERE and “like” Shari’s Photo on facebook so she can win a free Birthday Party for her kiddos at a local Farm.
