Month of October is finally here! Hopefully Autumn will be on its way towards California too and this heat goes away quickly =X. What's exciting though is the spirit that comes with the start of October. Halloween, Autumn, Sweaters, Beanies, Boots, and CANDY CORN! Lol. So many things to look forward to as Summer is coming to an end. I have a few interesting things that I found that also happens in the month of October and thought it would be worthy on your calendars or just to know. So here they are!
National Walk Your Dog: Starting the 1st-8th but make sure if you do have a dog that they have a walk everyday! :P
Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: You can go to petfinder.com to look for a local shelter near you. Please do your research before adopting. It's a great thing but do your research ahead of time to make sure you are truly ready for such a responsibility. :)
National Coming Out Day: This day falls on the 11th each year and is a civil holiday. A day where anyone can come out and declare their sexuality :D This website www.hrc.org/ncod can share with you details about the date, what's its all about, and support. It can also show you how to set up gatherings in your community, as truthfully you don't have to have a set/national day to come out. :)
Domestic Violence Awareness Month: www.ncadv.org is a great place to start for info, updates, events and postings. Just remember this is something very big and should not only be focused on for one month out of the whole year.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month: In a lifetime, the risk of getting breast cancer is 1 in 8 and is the second leading cause of cancer death for the American Women. Though it is the second leading cause, the death rate is in much lower now (1 in 28). Although this month is designated as Breast Cancer Month make sure to stay aware of your bodies! **(Both Men and Women)
National Popcorn Poppin' Month: This months about poppin'! Check out www.popcorn.org! We all love the simple kettle, buttery popcorn that we just microwave but try something new during this month! Invent a new creations with friends or family. Add wacky crazy ingredients... you'll never know... it might be Delicious!
