Kazaana and Radio Disney are teaming up to bring you a day of funs, prizes and games at this, the last BIG event celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts. It is a magical winter wonderland of crafts, games, and holiday shopping created by Teens Take Over and troops from all over Northern California. You can make your own unique room decorations, impress people with your glamorous jewelry-making abilities, stand out from the crowd with face paint and henna tattoos, play exciting games to win prizes, and shop for one of a kind holiday gifts that you will not find at the mall!

This event is also the culmination of a week-long food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank by the Girls Scouts and you can pitch in by bringing 2 cans of food with you to Winterfest. Kazaana will also be in the giving spirit, and for every kid who signs up for Kazaana at our booth, we will donate an additional can of food to the food drive. But you won’t be going home empty handed, as all kids who sign up also get a very cool, exclusive gift!

Kazaana in Kidscreen!

“While Facebook continues to mull over the idea of opening its social network to kids under 13, developers have been persistent in giving the demo its own unique virtual play spaces. Menlo Park, California-based startup Kazaana (formerly PixyKids) has recently joined that group. But where popular social sites like Moshi Monsters, Club Penguin or Everloop either focus on interactive gaming or social networking, Kazaana plans to bring the two features together.”

Making sure those new BFFS stay BFs Forever

Keeping up with Camp Friends

For the more than 10 Million kids who go to camp ever year, according to the American Camp Association, summer camp is a truly special experience that they will treasure the memories of  for their entire lives. Going off for weeks at a time (without parents around) to learn new skills and meet new people is a great way for kids to develop fast friendships that could last forever.
I remember by own Girl Scout camp experience and those friendships I made seemed destined to continue past the time our parents came to pick us up after 2 weeks of horseback riding in the Sierras. So, we traded addresses and became pen pals… for a while at least.  After a year or so, our letters to each other became less frequent, and since none of us lived near each other, the friendships quietly faded away.

BlogHer'12 in NYC!

WellConnectedMom and Kazaana in NYC!

We had the pleasure of sponsoring Lori Cunningham, WellConnectedMom and nationally respected mom blogger, for BlogHer12.  We couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome and wanted to personally thank Lori for her commitment to Kazaana’s launch and further introducing our platform to the over 5,000 mom and dad bloggers attending the conference.  From what we’ve heard, it was certainly the place to be in NYC for mixing, mingling and chatting about all topics important to making an impact in the blogosphere for parents and families. In fact, bloggers have such an impact in relating to America’s families that President Obama himself opened the BlogHer conference as a keynote speaker, via a live feed!
