Touch A Life Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Dallas, Texas that works to rehabilitate and support children who are vulnerable to trafficking, child labor and slavery in Southeast Asia and West Africa. With programs in Vietnam, Cambodia and Ghana, Touch A Life rescues, houses and educates exploited children. Touch A Life Co-Founders, Pam and Randy Cope created this inspiring foundation in 1999 after traveling to Southeast Asia to visit friends who run an orphanage in Vietnam. Here, the Copes saw poverty they never imagined. Their hearts went out especially to the street children (known as doi moi – “dust of the earth”) who were forced to live and beg on the streets, enduring hunger, abuse and the constant danger of being picked up by child traffickers and forced into a life of slavery. What started as a small apartment in Saigon, where they housed 15 rescued street children, grew and expanded to become a non-profit that provides vulnerable children across the globe with three meals a day, clothing, education, a loving family, resources to improve their futures and, above all, hope.   Touch A Life currently runs an empowerment program in Vietnam that offers assistance with school tuition, food...

On the afternoon of Monday, November 11, a wildfire broke out in the Linville Gorge Wilderness area of the Grandfather Ranger District, Pisgah National Forest. Dry weather and strong winds were the perfect combinations for a 15-acre fire that started near the Table Rock picnic area. Since then, the fire has grown to cover 2,275 acres as of Saturday, November 16. About 200 firefighters from 10 states, some as far away as Oklahoma, are battling the fire. So far, they have contained an estimated 40% of it. On Saturday, a third helicopter was brought in to join two others that have been dumping water on the blaze. The fire is threatening one home, but there have been no evacuations ordered so far. However, this seemingly grim event may reap some good. Although the fire has devastated wildlife in the area, Forest Service biologists predict that the burns will restore threatened plant and tree species, as well as reduce dense vegetation that feeds wildfires. As long as no one gets hurt, no structures burn and the resulting fog caused by lingering smoke does not cause any accidents, the Forest Service says that the fire could actually have a positive impact on...
Anyone who has a dog understands the struggles that come along with taking a vacation. Finding a friend to watch over your dog or resorting to a kennel is never an easy or fun process to go through. Enjoying the outdoors with your dog is an easy and fun way to take a vacation and still enjoy the company of your canine companion.
When you’re backpacking, camping or – God forbid – when SHTF, and you’re stranded in the middle of nowhere with no supplies, the first thing you must do is find water. When you consider the “Rule of Threes” – you can survive 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food – you realize that finding water should always be a top priority. To stay in good health, we need to drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water per day, or 2 full nalgenes. (Of course, particularly active people should drink more.)
