PLAY-Phx Children's Museum

Nat'l studies show that one in four young people can be classified with anxiety or depression by the time they reach 18 years old. PLAY is a nonprofit organization designed to enhance mindfulness skills in children and families through the practice of art and yoga. Gaining mindfulness skills helps to achieve a mind-body connection, increase self- awareness and build inner and external strength so we can be successful in life.

The Phx Children's Museum has incorporated this methodology as part of their "educational programs." Founder of PLAY, Deanna Sheedy, is a counselor by profession but has positively seen HUGE changes in kids' behavior, anxiety, depression through mediation and mindfulness through Yoga. Teachers and parents also agree!!!! (other programs across the country are reporting the same results for kids!)

April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month

In the U.S., testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men. The Movember Foundation conducted a survey and found that approximately 80% of American men aged 18-34 don't know they are most at risk of being diagnosed; more than 60% say they don't know how to perform a testicular self-examination. As part of our 50 Million Men campaign, which aims to help 50 million American men in the next five years, we launched the TrueNTH initiative, which provides preventive, diagnosis-stage, and post treatment measures.

One of our ambassadors, Chris Skaggs, is actually a Phoenix native. He journeyed through testicular cancer and uses his humor to encourage other young men to get themselves 'checked.' For the past 16 years, he has been working with high school students to educate them about the risk, spread awareness and save lives. He is available for interviews.

National Wear Your Pajamas Day

Each year on April 16th, the day after taxes are due in the United States; it is time to let go of the stress and wear your pajamas to work. After all, it is National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day. What some people are calling "the best holiday of the year," this day was created as a fun holiday. It is a day to celebrate and unwind from the long hours and hard work of those whose job is to prepare taxes and the anxiety of the last-minute tax filers. National Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day allows you to sleep in a little later than you normally would. Once you get up, you do not have to take the time getting dressed as you are already dressed for your day.
