This past summer I was writing a toy roundup for Care.com, 12 Kid-Tested Toys for 6-Year-Old Boys, when I stumbled upon Boogie Board™ eWriters. I found the original Boogie Board™ eWriter to be an interesting concept, super fun for children, and as a parent, I loved the fact that it is conducive to mess-free drawing.

Western Union: Giving Back By Paying It Forward

When I think back to my life just three years ago, I see a great deal of struggle. I had quit my job in the highly competitive publishing market to move out-of-state for my husband’s career.
