Celebrating 20 Years of Be the Star You Are!, Garden Garnishes, Algae Blooms

The secret of life is to believe the more I ask,

the more I receive.

~Author Unknown

On September 9, 1999, Be the Star You Are! 501 c3 charity was granted its 501 c3 status. What began with a heartfelt dream of increasing positive media messages and empowering women, families, and youth through increased literacy endured challenging years with little support and less dollars. Somehow, the charity has survived and to date has served more than 410,820 individuals and families and donated more than $2 million in resources to those in need. Founder and Executive Director, Cynthia Brian, retells the ups and downs of leading a small and mighty non profit. Help us celebrate this milestone by making a tax-deductible donation to BTSYA charity.

The quest for creating delicious and original cuisine and beverages is time honored. If you have visited any upscale restaurants or taverns recently, you probably have witnessed the rebirth of mixology. Although local wines and craft beers are always in fashion, adventurous infused spirits with herbs, fruits, flowers, and berries have become the new rock stars. It’s all about the garden garnishes!

Algae blooms occur in lakes and streams in every state and toxic algae can be dangerous or even deadly. Because of rain, fertilizer run-off, pesticides, and climate change, algae growth is increasing and is becoming problematic for humans and animals. Find out how to identify when to stay away from the water.

Be the Star You Are! 501 c3 charity offers help, hope, and healing for women, families and youth in need.
