This year we celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Labor Day holiday. Has it really been around that long?!
Labor Day officially became a federal holiday in June 1894 and was enacted to honor the American labor movement. Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day an official public holiday. By the time it became a federal holiday, thirty U.S. states officially adopted and celebrated Labor Day.
Labor Day has often been called “the unofficial end of summer”. Many families take their yearly vacations around this time of year, just to have one last ‘fling’ before the kids go back to school and the season changes.
So, here’s to the hard-working American; the backbone of our country! Enjoy the long holiday weekend!
Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. – Thomas Jefferson

Phil Hawley, President/CEO of Hawley & Associates was interviewed once again on Voice America Radio on the ‘Your Adoption Coach’ show with Kelly Ellison. Phil talks about wrongful adoption and claims resulting from the failure to disclose information about an adoptive child, whether it be intentional, unintentional or negligence. Phil also discusses why it is so important for an adoption agency to have the proper insurance coverage to protect their agency from any wrongful adoption lawsuits. It is a GREAT listen!

How much will your family spend on new clothes for Easter Sunday? Did you know for the cost of your Easter clothes you could provide food and clothes to an orphan in need? We have come across a wonderful cause and want to share!
Our client, New Beginnings, a domestic/international adoption agency is holding an amazing campaign to support orphans in Nepal!
This Easter we’re challenging you to “Ditch the Duds”. That’s right, forget the fancy clothes and wear a t-shirt supporting the Mercy Nepal orphanage instead. Sound a bit rouge for Easter Sunday morning? It is. But what better time to give to orphans and call attention to the plight of orphans than Easter Sunday?
For every Mangali t-shirt bought, $11 will be given to their orphanage in Nepal. They hope to raise $2,000 through this campaign.
By wearing a simple t-shirt instead of new clothes on Easter Sunday, you’ll be raising awareness of the need for orphan care throughout the world! Start the conversation now with your family, friends, Sunday School Classes, and church families to “Ditch the Duds” as a group this Easter. Help us help the orphans in need.
To order, just download the attached t-shirt order form and return it to New Beginnings. Please do not hesitate to call them with any questions or concerns at 662-842-6752.
P.S. The “Ditch the Duds” campaign is actually part of a larger movement called “Forget the Frock”. Check out their website (link to http://forgetthefrock.org/) and ready Emily’s inspiring story of how one woman’s heart for orphans is raising awareness and money for orphans worldwide.
Many organizations find out the hard way that their insurance policy does not cover damages resulting from poor building maintenance.
Could This Happen To You?
After many days of heavy rain, you discover water damage to your ceiling and carpet. You instinctively file a property damage claim, fully expecting the damage to be covered by your insurance policy. It is later revealed that the damage was caused by debris (i.e. leaves, branches, etc.) that had been collecting in the roof drains. This resulted in the water puddling on the roof instead of running off and down the drain system.
The claim was denied due to poor maintenance of your roof and your organization is now responsible for the total cost of repairs!
An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound Of Cure:
You have worked hard to build your organization and your mission. That is why it’s so important to protect that mission! Having insurance coverage is just one part of that protection. It is important to do your part and maintain your property and assets. Create a maintenance check list and stick to it! Once again….an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
