I extremely likely to recommend this to others and I would like to help and work with their upcoming events!
"I want to thank you for a fabulous day yesterday. It is sooo amazing that you and all the instructors team were to extend your service. I would never have had this opportunity otherwise. I will get some more individual coaching before I am ready to go practice on my own. I hope our paths will meet again. You are an amazing young woman. Again many thanks for a very special and thrilling day"

I have helped out in few of iDARE events, but one I like most is the Disaster Preparedness. It requires so much attention from everyone. We helped promote Tsunami Preparedness awareness by educating public along coastline in Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, and Ventura. We need to work together to continue this awareness, from all levels! Nicky and her team had worked diligently and tirelessly to deliver the message to the public in general. So much to be done!
Nicky is a natural leader and outstanding instructor who always goes above and beyond the call of duty. A 20-year review of disasters showed 90% of disasters are weather-related. I believe through iDARE Nicky's goal is that we as a people survive and are prepared in case of a natural disaster. I have had occassions to work alongside Nicky, who organized training events for women and I am familiar with these events Nicky organized. She will not rest until the message of being prepared is heard by all ! I would not hesitate to follow Nicky's lead as she is a great example of a "Top Drawer" leader.
It was an excellent event today! Thank you for putting the Disaster Preparedness community event together. It was worth the drive from bay area with my team. My other team members definitely have missed this! Looking forward to help in your next events.
As a business owner, the single most important thing is the safety of my employees in the event of disaster. After learning more of iDARE "Are You Ready? Be Prepared, Survive, Recover" workshop, there are just so much to know and learn in many ways. Thank you for providing these important information !
I absolutely loved the overall hands-on practice lesson and the wealth of experience and knowledge to this event: Disaster Preparedness meal prep challenge. Thank you iDARE for putting this event together! Can't wait for the next one.
Great to be part of the Disaster Preparedness promoting different natural disasters. I recently helped out by volunteering for iDARE awareness programs at a local event. We need more volunteers to help out in this community programs.
After attending yesterday's workshop in How To Be Better Prepared "Prepared, Survive, Recover" I went to Home Depot and started my disaster kit. It was a great information. Thank you!!
Thank you iDARE for providing these public services to our community. Very helpful.

What is Earth Day?
It is celebrated in more than 175 countries. There were 20 million people participated in the first Earth Day.
Its name and concept was pioneered by John McConnell in 1969 at UNESCO conference in San Francisco.
Earth Day is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.
Earth Day was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970.
Why should you care ? In the spirit of Earth Day, here are few facts that can motivate each one of us all to consider our positive impact on the environment and take action today!
- Save water! Just by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime, [also when washing dishes] you can save up to 8 gallons of water! That adds up to more than 200 gallons a month.
- More than 100 billion pieces of junk mail are delivered in the US each year.
- It only takes average 6 weeks to manufacture, fill, sell, recycle, and then remanufacture an aluminum beverage can.
- ½ of the world’s tropical and temperate forests are now gone.
- More than 2 million people globally die prematurely every year, due to outdoor and indoor air pollution.
- Every year in the US nearly 200 billion beverage containers are sold
- Recycle, reuse, and remanufacturing responsible for 3.1 million jobs in the US.
- By reducing our waste only 1% per year and recycling and composting 90% of our discards by 2013, we could save 406 megatons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
- More than 76% of cardboard boxes and 72% of newspapers were recycled in 2006 but less than 50% of printing and writing paper was recycled.
- Many companies are doing their part by encouraging employees to use less paper and take public transportation to and from work, allowing some employees to telecommute, and using green materials and alternative heating systems when they rebuild or renovate.
How can you help?
Here are some easy suggested tips for you to do:
- Recycle: anything around your house, your workplace. Namely cans, water bottles, plastics, inks, cartridges, even old clothes.
- Save water. When you wash dishes or brush your teeth! Just by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime, you can save up to 8 gallons of water! That adds up to more than 200 gallons a month, enough to fill a huge fish tank that holds 6 small sharks! The same is true when you wash dishes.
- Turn off lights, power you do not need as you walk away from your house, your work desk.
- Donate old items you do not need: namely clothes, shoes, yes shoes!
- Plant a tree. Plant your favorite tree of fruits, vegetables…
- Conservation at home!
- Train and educate your children to do the same. They follow your Leadership!
