The Amazing Spider-Man Stand Up & Volunteer Day in Atlanta + Spider-Man Trilogy Blu-Ray Giveaway *2 Winners*

We at Children Teaching Mama like to do our part to volunteer and give back to our community! This week is the National Volunteer week and Atlantans are invited to take part in several great events to help out and celebrate. Here's some info about all the great activities going on from Tuesday, June 25th until Monday, July 2nd:

BE AN AMAZING ATLANTANSTAND UP AND VOLUNTEER!

Atlanta participates in The Amazing Spider-Man national volunteer day to benefit Stand Up To Cancer

WHO: Join Sony Pictures Entertainment, Hands On Atlanta and the Office of Mayor Kasim Reed to celebrate the hero in all of us by volunteering on The Amazing Spider-Man™ “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” Day. On Tuesday, June 26th, people of all ages in cities across the country will come together to give their time and energy to help their neighbors – and the day will support Stand Up To Cancer, which funds accelerated and innovative cancer research. Atlantans can log on to www.BeAmazing2012.com to find out more information on the initiative in Atlanta and nationwide.
WHAT: Atlanta’s “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” opportunities are highlighted by beautification projects at the Grove Park recreation center with the City’s Camp Best Friends youth participants. Activities at the centers include interior and exterior painting, repairing and staining benches, landscaping, building shelves, painting murals and more. Materials will be provided.

In honor of the volunteers, Sony Pictures Entertainment will make a donation to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), an organization very close to one of the producers of the film, Laura Ziskin. A founding member of SU2C, Laura lost her battle with cancer in 2011. Registered Atlanta volunteers will also receive advance screening passes to see The Amazing Spider-Man™ before it arrives in theaters on July 3rd and a “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” t-shirt.

IN THEATERS IN IMAX, 3D AND REAL D 3D ON TUESDAY, JULY 3RD!

About The Amazing Spider-Man:
One of the world’s most popular characters is back on the big screen as a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy is revealed in The Amazing Spider-Man™.  Focusing on an untold story that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story, the new film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, with Martin Sheen and Sally Field.  The film is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves from a story by James Vanderbilt, based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.  Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach are producing the film in association with Marvel Entertainment for Columbia Pictures, which will open in theaters everywhere in 3D on July 3, 2012.
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field).  Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today.  Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets.  As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner.  As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
About Hands On Atlanta:
Hands On Atlanta helps individuals, families, corporate and community groups strengthen Greater Atlanta through service at more than 400 nonprofit organizations and schools.  Hands On Atlanta volunteers are at work every day of the year tutoring and mentoring children, helping individuals and families make pathways out of poverty, improving Atlanta’s environment, and more.  Hands On Atlanta is an affiliate of the HandsOn Network, an association of 250 volunteer service organizations across 16 countries.
About Stand Up 2 Cancer:
Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C)—a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization—raises funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. SU2C facilitates collaboration among the best and the brightest in the cancer research community. The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and a Scientific Advisory Committee led by Nobel Laureate Phillip A. Sharp, Ph.D., conduct rigorous, competitive review processes through which SU2C’s grantees are selected. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C generates awareness and builds grassroots support for this new approach to ending cancer.

Members of the SU2C Executive Leadership Council include Katie Couric; the Entertainment Industry Foundation, represented by Board of Directors Chairperson Sherry Lansing (Founder of the Sherry Lansing Foundation), CEO Lisa Paulsen and Senior Vice President Kathleen Lobb; Rusty Robertson and Sue Schwartz of the Robertson Schwartz Agency; Pam Williams, President of Laura Ziskin Productions; and nonprofit executive Ellen Ziffren. The late Laura Ziskin, a legendary film producer who executive produced the 2008 and 2010 SU2C telecasts, was also a co-founder of Stand Up To Cancer.

My husband is a retired flight medic and I am still an active EMT with our local fire department/ambulance service. Community service has been good to us, since I became an EMT just for that reason (my full-time job is as a massage therapist, but I work 24 hour shifts when I am on the ambulance). If I hadn't become an EMT, I would never have met my husband.
