Hillary, herself, was honored last night at this Malaria No More gala.  (Three appearances in one evening!  What a busy lady!)  Note to Cynthis Littleton:  If she was stumping for anything at this event, my bet is that it was for the eradication of malaria for which we applaud her.

Hillary Clinton: On the Stump at Malaria No More Fete

Former Secretary of State walks and talks like presidential candidate at Gotham fundraiser

Relaxed and ready, if not tanned: Hillary Clinton swooped in to Malaria No More’s annual fundraiser in Gotham on Monday night to be feted for her efforts to fight what she called an “ancient scourge.”

Many in the crowd noted that Clinton looked the part of a presidential candidate even if she barely touched on politics in her brief speech accepting the award from the org co-founded in 2006 by Peter Chernin and United Nations exec Ray Chambers.

Malaria No More was one of three Gotham events Clinton attended Monday night, which necessitated her brief touchdown at the Jazz at Lincoln Center gathering. And she cut quite a figure in a Nehru-style jacket and newly bobbed hair.

Speaking to a private crowd of 10,000 realtors at the Moscone Center in San Francisco this evening,  Hillary Clinton emphasized the importance of home ownership as an aspect of the American Dream.  Noting that wealth and poverty exist everywhere but that our middle class sets us apart, she affirmed the role realty plays in American culture and called herself a realtor’s nightmare referring to the time when, as First Lady, she was house hunting in Westchester County with Secret Service in tow.  Once again deflecting the 2016 question, she reportedly drew chants of  “Just say yes” from the crowd.   Cameras and recording devices were banned (along with an irate press), but participants managed to send out a few pics via various social media.

Last night, at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel,  International Medical Corps President and CEO, Nancy Aossey, presented Hillary with the organization’s Global Champion Award.   Dedicated to providing first response in humanitarian crises the world over, teams stood at the ready to assist  following yesterday’s battering of the Philippines by Super Typhoon Haiyan.

Former President Clinton,  obviously proud, accompanied her to the gala where we see her with Aossey, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, co-chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Rob Friedman, Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone,   Lenny Kravitz, and Martha Plimpton among others.

Unemployment Takes a Heavy Toll on Children, Too

More than 12 million children currently live in households where at least one parent is unemployed or underemployed; about 11 percent of those children, or 2.8 million, are five-years-old or younger. This population has approximately doubled in size since before the United States recession, and shows no sign of decreasing. Families that experience unemployment come from a wide range of ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds, though unemployment tends to be most heavily experienced among African American and Hispanic families.

Children who live in homes where parents or caregivers are concerned about a severe decline in income experience a great deal of stress, and often have access to fewer important resources like high-quality childcare, nutritious and regular meals, health care and learning materials. This can be especially damaging for very young children because early experiences have a tremendous impact on their long-term health and well-being, and can impact their preparedness for kindergarten and beyond. Often, parents experiencing job loss can also be depressed or more irritable, affecting the quality of parent-child bonding and causing these important relationships to be stressed.

Parents and caregivers can help minimize the effects of unemployment on their children. Skills like learning how to focus on tasks at hand, set goals and make plans, follow rules, solve problems and control impulses are all helpful for parents and caregivers to know so they can protect the emotional well-being of their children.  In addition, there are important government resources that parents can apply for to help their children receive basic things like health care and food while they are unemployed, and also to help them manage finances and taxes during tough times.
