Our time at St. Jude

Some members of our team here at SunDANCE recently had the unique and amazing experience of traveling to St. Jude Children’s Medical Hospital for a day to learn about the hospital and all of the inspirational things happening there. We were able to spend time playing games and making arts and crafts with some of the brave kiddos that are currently living and receiving treatment at St. Jude.

Inside the halls of St. Jude.

So much effort is made to ensure the experience at St. Jude is unlike any other hospital. The halls and rooms are void of that common “hospital smell” and the walls are covered in fun and colorful murals.

ABCs of Cancer

Possibly the most emotional moment of the trip came when walking by the ABCs of Cancer where patients write about their journey through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

Across from the ABCs is the KAY KAFE where patients and their families are able to go to eat world class food without having to spend a dime. Story after story about the the care and personalization of the food shows the great lengths the hospital goes to ensuring these children and their families are comfortable.

Paper Crafts

Later in the day after our tour, we spent time at the Target House where patients live while undergoing treatment. We all got pretty good at making paper air planes by the end, although I’m pretty sure Gavin’s flew the farthest!

After shooting pool, playing cards and singing karaoke it was time to leave and say goodbye to these brave kids. The experience was unforgettable and we all came away with admiration for the hospital for all that it provides for these families in need. For more information on St. Jude go to http://www.stjude.org/

Help us raise money for St. Jude this October-December, 2014 by purchasing Hammermill paper. SunDANCE is donating a dollar to St. Jude for every case of Hammermill Tidal MP sold till the end of the year. In addition Hammermill will be giving it’s annual donation of $250,000 to St. Jude for the 4th straight year.

Happy Left Handers Day!

left-handers-daySure, lefties make up about 10 percent of the population — but, frankly, it seems like society has forgotten about them. Right-handed gadgets, awkwardly designed desks, cooking tools that fit comfortably in your right hand, Left Hander’s certainly earned the right to have a day dedicated to them. August 13th is that day. So take a minute to appreciate your left handed friends and loved ones. To celebrate we thought we would share some fun Left Hander’s Trivia and Facts!

  • Lefties are also called “southpaws”. The term was coined in baseball to describe a left handed pitcher.
  • International Left Hander’s Day was first celebrated on August 13, 1976. It was started by Lefthander’s International.
  • During the 1600’s people, thought left handers were witches and warlocks.
  • According to research published in the American Journal of Psychology, there is some evidence that left-handed people have the upper hand in at least one creative facet — they’re better at divergent thinking, a method of idea generation that explores many possible solutions.
  • President Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford are all left-handed. Herbert Hoover is believed to be the first left-handed president.
  • Lefties make especially good baseball players, tennis players, swimmers, boxers and fencers.
  • Mothers over 40 are twice as likely to have a left-handed baby.
  • Approximately 10% of all humans are left-handed. BUT 50% of CATS are left handed.
  • Research has shown connections between the right and left sides of the brain are faster in left-handed people.

 

 

Street Cred: Urban Core

Street Cred: Urban Core

Sunday, May 4 | 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Southern downtown | Starting at 5th and Boston with activities down to the 21st Street Riverparks Corridor
Free to attend | No RSVP required

Street CReD is an annual event that focuses on community redevelopment in a specific neighborhood each year by showing what Tulsa can become when it creates the change it wants to see. Our mantra: When no area of Tulsa is neglected, the entire city benefits.

Get ready for a celebration of all things walkable and bikeable downtown, as one of TYPros’ largest and most impactful events of the year returns in May with an Open Streets event that will temporarily close a mile of streets in southern downtown for use by pedestrians and bicyclists.

We need partners to help us create a festival-like atmosphere along the route. Nonprofit organizations can host “activity stops” with almost any activity — as long as it’s designed to get people out of their cars and onto their feet. More information and an application can be found at www.tulsastreetcred.com

Design contest: We are also seeking participants for a design competition to showcase how the city can best utilize a surface parking lot at the southeast corner of 10th and Boston. Details and applications for both can be found at www.tulsastreetcred.com

Going GREEN!

Going GREEN!

Going GREEN should not be hard and the team at SunDANCE is here to help! Try some of these GREEN tips.

1. Printing

Printers are one of the most used office items and represents an area where we can make a significant difference by printing smarter. Try using a multifunction device, this is a combination printer/scanner/copier in one machine and if it is Energy Star rated, it can save both energy and space.

Easy Wardrobe Fixes Using Office Supplies

I came across and interesting article on Kaboodle today about easy wardrobe fixes with office supplies (my favorite subject of course!) and thought I would share the knowledge!

Life Fixes with Office Supplies

 

Lose a button on your shirt? Let Double-Sided Tape do the work until you can get it fixed!

 

 

 

 

Life Fixes with Office Supplies

Stuck Zipper? Don’t waste time battling with it, instead color it with a Wooden Pencil, which will help lubricate the track so you can easily slide the zipper up or down.

 

 

 

Life Fixes with Office Supplies Don’t you hate when you get your nails done and the very next day you chip that pretty french manicure? Use White-Out or Liquid Paper to make your manicure look like you just stepped out of the nail salon.

 

 

 

Life Fixes with Office Supplies

Bad hair day, we have all been there, use Paper Clips as bobby pins for an emergency up-do or to pin back unruly bangs.

 

 

 

 

Life Fixes with Office SuppliesIt is not a good day when you are working and your bra strap breaks. Hone in on your MacGyver skills and tie one end of the strap to a Paper Clip or Book Ring and hook the metal part to the base of your bra.

 

 

 

 

 

 

undonehem

You look down at your pants and notice that one leg is longer than the other. Not your actual leg, your pant leg.If you find that the hem has come undone in one of your pant legs, just reach for your Stapler as a quick fix. Just fold the pant leg to your desired length and staple the hem… just make sure to be careful when you’re removing the staples later!

 

 

fixes with office suppliesScuffed shoe or exposed stiletto?  Few things are as annoying as trying to walk in high heels that are missing the rubber or plastic covering of heel base. Prevent a slip by inserting the heel into a thick Eraser or gluing a slim slice of a pencil-top eraser to the exposed metal until you make it to the cobbler. Use a Sharpie to fix a scuffed shoe and make look like new.

 

 

We all dislike wardrobe malfunctions, but we hope with these tips the next time one appears, you will be ready!

Random Acts of Kindness Day 2014

It’s a holiday without a Hallmark card or little candy hearts with phrases printed on them. It has no decorations, no tree, no lights, no parade, no media fanfare. In fact, it’s not even a “real” holiday and isn’t well-known (though it should be). It’s Random Acts of Kindness Day!

random-acts-of-kindness-day1Monday February 17, 2014 is Random Acts of Kindness Day.

This is a favorite day of many people and groups. People like the idea of showing a little kindness to others. It’s a fun and good thing to do. And, they like being on the receiving end of this day as well. It makes both the giver and the receiver feel good.

Selflessness is not a popular credo these days, but imagine if it was! Imagine your neighbor shoveling your driveway without being asked.Imagine someone holding the door for you, picking up the book you dropped, or simply saying “good morning” when you are feeling down. Imagine how you would feel if someone suddenly did something nice for you! What comes around, goes around. Random Acts of Kindness is highly contagious!!

Today SunDANCE celebrates with free Zebra pen and Zebra highlighter samples with all orders $75 or more all week-long!

But that’s not all folks!
