If you watched the Super Bowl last night then you probably saw this commercial. It made me laugh and then I was curious. So what was it all about?
Well, Jeff feels the world is filled with too many restless people in need of rest so with the help of Squarespace he made a new mini-site DreamingWithJeff.com and created his sleeping tapes album filled with intriguing sounds, noises and other things to help you get a good night’s rest.
100% of the retail price from each album sold goes directly to No Kid Hungry. So you’ll get a good night’s rest knowing that when you download the album, or pick up the LP or cassette, you’re helping end childhood hunger in America.
Catch some z’s and make a difference. Count me in.
Thanks Jeff and Squarespace!

The University of Southern California School of Social Work invites you to participate in You Matter, a grassroots campaign designed to foster well-being and bring back some much-needed human connection. Use our Care Cards to tell someone why they matter to you.
The purpose of a Care Card is to serve as a random act of kindness — a message of love, friendship or appreciation. The You Matter campaign encourages human connection and is a reminder that we’re all in this life together. You never know what someone may be going through, and simply checking in can have a huge impact on that person’s well-being. Take a moment to tell someone, “You Matter,” by downloading a Care Card today!
Not sure how to get started? Download a You Matter Care Card and read their post on 60 Ways to Use a Care Card for inspiration.
