Over the past 100 years CHKD, have been involved with the Hampton Roads Community which has struck an impact with thousands of children and their families. These children and families have come to know and love the devotion of women who choose to give their time to children in need. As it is our part to give back to such a noble cause for many of these children ,The King’s Daughters can provide a hand to hold on the way to surgery or a shoulder to snuggle afterwards. They also stretch their support even further by becoming staunch advocates for children’s health issues on local, state and national levels.
Since the inception of The King’s Daughters, they have a support system that helps the children in so many ways. Many of them women who are, mothers, doctors, homemakers, attorneys, who come from all backgrounds use this to build community to help bring awareness to fun raise in support if this institution and of course the children.
With one important thought in mind is their indelible legacy for the love of children. You will find this same feeling with CHKD in many of the events in an around Hampton Roads!

Walmart Helps Veterans and Military Families Achieve the dream of small business Ownership with Vetsource in Hampton Roads
.We love companies that support veterans, military and best of all the military spouses in Hampton Roads! With a big business like Wal-Mart taking the lead with the Coalition for Veteran Owned Business (CVOB), they are bringing an event that no one has seen before to Norfolk, called VetSource. This event is made to support the success of veterans, military and military spouse owned business and use this platform to connect them to several types of Fortune 500 companies.
With the help of Wal-Mart, they are working to ensure the success of veteran, and military family-owned businesses by connecting them to larger companies that can help them to achieve the “American Dream”. Before the inception of the VetSource event, Walmart has had a long history of supporting members of the military. With this show of support for veterans and their families, Wal-Mart has initiated programs such as the Veterans Welcome Home Commitment. They have hired more than 179,000 veterans since this program launched in 2013. Many of that veteran hire, over 24,000 have been promoted to jobs of greater responsibility. Wal-Mart has been seen as one of the major supporters in our nation when it comes to helping veterans and their families adjust to returning to civilian life.

Hi, my name is Jennifer Gordon and I am a LuLaRoe Fashion Consultant. I love owning my small business where I get to meet so many beautiful and inspiring women of all shapes and sizes. I get to share my love for these amazing clothes with you in person and online. I became addicted the first time I went to a LuLaRoe fundraiser and never looked back. LuLaRoe is Simply Comfortable. It's a line mostly of women's unique styles and prints (there are also kids and some styles for those men in our lives). Sizes range from XXS-3XL (00-24). The clothes are affordable, comfy, stylish and oh so versatile. I carry dresses, pencil skirts, maxi skirts, tunics, a variety of shirts, layering pieces, buttery soft leggings and more. One of the best things about LuLaRoe is the prints are ever-changing which means you may never see the same print on someone else in your area. Only a certain number are made in a particular print across all styles. Another great thing is that once you know your size in a style you can pretty much bet that’s your size. No more spending hours at the mall shopping and trying on just to be frustrated by the sizing. Let me be your fashion consultant. I can help you find those perfect pieces to add to your wardrobe and show you all the ways you can wear each style. Maybe you’ll become a LuLaRoe addict along the way too!

Welcome to Amazing Smooches, my name is Laura! As most of you know, I'm extremely frugal and skeptical of products being sold on social media. When I saw two of my friends start selling LipSense about the same time, I decided to do my research. After about two months of digging, I decided to jump right in without even tying the product....and I'm soooo glad I did! LipSense is a SeneGence product and I have totally fallen in love with it! I always wanted to wear lipsticks and lip gloss, but I couldn't stand the way they tasted and felt on my lips. LipSense is completely different, this stuff is amazing! It's not a lipstick or a lip stain...it's pure magic! It stays on all day without needing to be reapplied and it doesn't leaving your lips feeling sticky or tasting gross. It is kissproof, smudgeproof, waterproof, everything proof and is just totally worth every penny! With over 70 colors to choose from, there is a LipSense type for everyone and every occasion. There are also several other SeneGence products that I'm excited to test out and introduce to you all as well. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am here for you and can't wait to see which colors you'll pick for yourself or your loved ones!!! Smooches!

I am Jennifer Culver a stay at home mom to our son, Riley (5), Navy wife and entrepreneur. A little about me, I first started my career in Corporate America spending most of my career as a Mortgage Broker and in the Banking Industry. I always have enjoyed working but then I met my husband and as he was in the Navy, I knew it was going to be hard to maintain a career but we still managed to make it work! Then our son was born and the idea of working 50-60 hours a week with a newborn and a husband about to deploy was daunting and as a result I found myself to be a newly minted stay at home momma. I was searching for a while to find my “fit” so when I was first introduced to Rodan and Fields, the same Doctors that created ProActive in August of 2015, I thought I will just try these products but was not ready to start my own skincare business. But I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to be a part of this company after using the products for a few weeks. At the time, I had a pretty heavy volunteer schedule, my husband was about to set out on another deployment so I just “thought about it” for 2 months while using the products! And in October of 2015, I decided to take a chance on something big! The business plan sounded simple enough… wash your face and share with others. So I jumped in with both feet, figuring I had the same 60 day guarantee with the business as I would as a customer. If I hated it, I could get a FULL REFUND! Honestly I had no idea what I had gotten myself into in the beginning but I was excited and that is all I needed!

For many of us parents, we have our children going back to school! As exciting as that might sound, getting your kids there is not an easy task. I have to say when school ended, I jumped with joy not having to worry about a “schedule”, but in reality, my family truly relies on routine. You and your children will and always are better for it. Being a stay at home mom I have more leniency when it comes to wake and sleep times, but not all of us have that luxury of being home. When I was working summer was similar to during the regular year, but still was more relaxed than the school year with sleep times. But what I know is important is the daily routine, which today my kids are totally out of.
So you ask yourself, how do we get all of us back on track? Well, it’s simple. You have to gradually go back to a routine. Make it simple. It is a known fact many children and adults do not like drastic change, so take it slow. We all know that if you make the changes now when the first day of school comes your not scrambling like a chicken’s with your head cut off! Make these changes now so you and your kids will be adjusted before starting school!
