Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children from ages 1 to 19 in the U.S. Yet, childhood cancer research and services are vastly and consistently underfunded. This weekend, Northwestern Mutual financial professionals and employees will support the fight against childhood cancer through its nonprofit partner, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), by holding nearly 200 lemonade stands as part of the Foundation’s national fundraising initiative, Alex’s Lemonade Days (June 12-14).
Founded by Alex Scott (1996-2004) in 2004, Alex’s Lemonade Days is a three-day national event that grew out of Alex’s front yard lemonade stand. During Alex’s Lemonade Days, dedicated volunteers host thousands of Alex’s Lemonade Stands across the country, raising more than $1 million for childhood cancer research. June 2015 will mark the 12th Annual Lemonade Days, and will continue Alex’s mission to raise money one cup of lemonade at a time, renewing her idea that any contributor, at any age, can make a difference.

IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is renewing its relationship with actor/comedian Rob Riggle as the Holiday Inn Express® brand’s first-ever Creative Director. In a role created just for him, Riggle will tap into his wit and “smarts” to showcase the simple pleasures at Holiday Inn Express hotels that help guests enjoy a little bit of nice to help them leave ready for anything – like a restful night of sleep, an energizing breakfast or a good, fast cup of coffee at the push of a button.
The Holiday Inn Express brand will feature Riggle – actor, comedian and coffee connoisseur – in its latest Stay Smart® campaign spots. As his first order of business, Riggle is implementing the brand’s new beverage offering – a Keurig® K130 in-room brewing system in every guestroom – making morning coffee intake easier and faster than ever before for Holiday Inn Express guests. The new Keurig brewers are the first of several contributions from Riggle to follow in the coming months.

Instant improvements and no recovery time make the new ARTISTRY® intensive skincare renewing peel a convenient, at-home alternative to acid-based peels. It provides a gentle, one-step option that’s cost-effective and rivals benefits experienced from professional treatments.
Intensive skincare renewing peel is appropriate for women of all skin types, including Miss America 2011 Teresa Scanlan. With traveling 20,000 miles a month, Scanlan simply doesn’t have time to regularly visit a dermatologist or wait for recovery from redness experienced after professional treatments. “I’ve turned to at-home alternatives. I love ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel, which provides my skin with what I need in just minutes, without worrying about irritation,” comments Scanlan.
