Invitation to free new website that helps moms better manage their kids? group activities
Hello Mommies,

I am a fellow member of the Mommies Network and the creator of a new website called 

Podanize, which helps moms, dads and group leaders better organize their kids'

group activities (e.g. soccer, scouts, school classes, etc.)

Kids today are overscheduled, and keeping up is a challenge:  

? What day did I volunteer at school to go read with the kids? 

? Who is driving to the scout meeting? 

? When am I signed up to bring the team's snacks?  

These are just a few of the many little details that busy parents have to keep straight.  

Try as we might, something inevitably falls through the cracks.  We all need a little help 

to stay organized. 

I?d like to invite you to join our brand new website.  To join, just go to http:// and click Get Started to create a "Pod" for any real-world group, or 

even just your family for now. You can create a Pod if you?re a group leader or a group 

member. It?s quick, easy and free.  Then "get your Pod going" by adding discussions 

or events, and inviting others to join your Pod.  Podanize can also be accessed via a 

mobile browser, and our mobile app will be available in late 2013. 

Our mission at Podanize is to help ease the stress that comes with keeping our 

kids active and involved.  To this end, we welcome any feedback you have.  Podanize 

is for you and is built to get better over time by adding your suggestions ? I?d love 

to hear from you. Also, if you know of other moms (or dads) who might benefit from 

Podanize, please share this with them.

Podanize is ideal for all extra-curricular activities: soccer, little league, playgroups, scout 

troops, swim teams, theater groups, school classes, PTA, etc. The list is endless and 

includes anything with a need for ongoing communication and coordination.

Again, just go to to get started.

Co-Founder of Podanize

Sponsors Spot : Compassion International

Have you ever wondered what life is really like in other parts of the world?  Have you ever wondered how to explain to your kids that they have it pretty good compared to some kids who live in other countries? What if you could see daily life on another continent - and give your kids an experience they won't forget - without getting on an airplane?

At Change the Story: The Compassion Experience, you can do just that. Your destination? Uganda. India. Bolivia. Your tour guide? A child who lives there, waiting to give you an inside look into their world - how they live, the streets they walk, and why their stories will never be the same.

This one-of-a-kind event is made up of 3,100 square feet of exhibit space that will immerse you and your family into the environment of the developing world. You'll step inside homes, walk through markets and see schools. You'll experience first hand the challenges that a life in poverty presents, but will also experience each child's special story of hope.

It's an amazing opportunity to see a different world that is usually only experienced by traveling overseas. It's also a chance to not just tell your kids about poverty, but to let them experience it - all in a safe and controlled environment. Check out this video preview:

The Compassion Experience is coming to the Kansas City area this week - it will be at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood (13720 Roe Ave. - 66224) April 4-7. The event is complimentary.

Walk-ins are accepted, but reservations are recommended to avoid waiting in line. Click here to reserve your spot now or visit for more information.

Compassion International is the world's largest Christian child development organization that permanently releases children from poverty. Founded in 1952, Compassion successfully tackles global poverty one child at a time, serving more than 1 million children in 26 of the world's poorest countries. Recognizing that poverty is more than a lack of money, Compassion works through local churches to holistically address the individual physical, economic, educational and spiritual needs of children-enabling them to thrive, not just survive.  Compassion has been awarded eleven consecutive, four-star ratings by Charity Navigator, America's largest charity evaluator.
