Small Good Things for Rainy Saturday

Something for others: Pampers has teamed up with UNICEF to sponsor a great vaccine program. For every specially-marked package of Pampers diapers or wipes that you buy between now and May 1, Pampers will buy a tetanus vaccine to be distributed through UNICEF. To help support this program, you don't have to do anything you wouldn't normally do -- except be sure that if you are purchasing these products anyway, you buy the specially marked packages. How easy is that? If you want to download the widget for your site, to show you support these efforts, and to help spread the word, you can find it here.

Something for you: Don't miss the chance to win a free month of what might be the greatest online math help your K-3rd grader could ever receive. The fun, educational system adapts to your child's abilities in a variety of math-based skills, making it perfect for every child--from those who need a little extra tutoring to those who are ahead of the curve in their grade. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered to win.

Something for me: I just got word yesterday that the book I've been working on for years (revision of my dissertation, academic stuff) has been accepted by a great university press! The contract is in the mail. It's not be a book that will be of huge popular interest, but it is a pretty big deal for my career, and I'm thrilled. So, whee! And martinis all around.

Hope your Saturday is as happy as mine...
