SafetyPIN Will Keep Your Family Safe!

SafetyPIN Will Keep Your Family Safe!

safetyPINSummer is here and that means hubby and I will be gearing up for a bunch of date nights! Although we do have older sons who could easily keep an eye on our youngest daughter they do have their own life and their own plans. Recently I can across a great way to find out beforehand how to land a safe choice when it comes to people entering our house. As a mom you already know how much we use websites an apps as a second hand. I know I do anyway! In the back of my mind I’m always wondering if the person I am bringing into our house is a safe choice. 

safetypin1SafetyPIN is something I found out about and had to check more into. It’s a place you can go to check in about your babysitter, dog walker, house helper and more before bringing them into your house. By the time they are in your house it’s way too late. And we all know that everyone seems okay when it’s just a profile online. You never get the true deal until they are already in your company. This is a great way to check and see how the person stacks up in reality once they are off your computer or phone and in your living room!

SafetyPIN is only given to profiles that make the mark when it comes to passing a comprehensive background and behavioral screening. When someone shares their SafetyPIN it is the best way to know you can trust them to come into your home and be around your kids. (You can learn more by clicking here.) With SafetyPIN you can rest at ease knowing that you made the right choice.

SafetyPIN is a virtual trust badge that’s perfect for the sharing and gig economies. In this world where it takes a full village for us to survive it’s great to know there is somewhere you can got to find out who is safe to meet offline that looks great online. Honestly along the way of life I have met many creditable people that have popped off the page and into my life, I have also seen the worst, the fakes. I absolutely love how SafetyPIN uses a four pronged screening process that includes checks in criminal background, financial background, identity verification and behavioral screening. We have all seen the videos online of the babysitter mistreating the child. I am positive I do NOT want that to be my scenario.

safetyPINThey even include a behavioral questionnaire developed with criminal profilers and a clinical psychologist to weed out people who may present a danger (even if they don’t have a criminal record) and SafetyPIN holders are regularly rescreened!!!  SafetyPIN is revoked if they no longer meet requirements. How can it get any better! So, when it comes to making a choice next time about  babysitting, pet sitting, elder care, Craigslist, Airbnb, HomeAway, Bumble, Match or anything else you can think of there is only one place to go where you can get that prescreening peace of mind- SafetyPIN!


You may think that a process like this would cost an arm and a leg but it is extremely reasonable!and only costs $1 to apply and $6 for the first 6 months. To continue it’s less than $5/month and you can cancel the membership at any time. Most of the applications are approved within 24 hours.

Now that you heard about SafetyPIN I’m sure you are as curious as I was to check them out. It’s like having a “TSA Trusted Traveler” for you home. This is only available currently in the USA. 

If you want your babysitter or someone you already have working with you to apply and pay themselves, just send this link: If you want to pay for a SafetyPIN for your babysitter, nanny, or someone else the process is simple: 

– Go to and register (if you’re already a member, login)

– Once you’re signed in, choose “Vouchers” from the drop-down menu and follow the prompts.

– Enter their information and your payment information and we take care of the rest! (You can pay for just the application fee or you can cover their membership for as long as you choose.)

Easy Peasy! In this day and age please do not let someone into your house without checking them out first! People are being scammed on a daily basis by profiles that look like they are at the peak of perfection and then later the truth comes out. Let the truth come out before you pay the price. I will never let someone near my home or family without checking them out first. SafetyPIN is a perfect, easy and affordable way to do that!

SafetyPIN- Use it EVERY time you take an online relationship offline!

“Incredibles 2” Crushes Record As Fandango’s #1 Pre-Seller Among Animated Films, Topping Fandango’s Fantifipation and Weekend Sales! 
If your family is like mine ( then I am so sure you have already seen Incredibles 2! Can you believe that Disney Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” has already broken the record for Fandango’s top animated presales in the company’s 18-year history? I really kind of can believe it! I had a feeling this movie was going to be BIG!! 
The new list of top five animated films, in terms of highest advance tickets sold on Fandango, is as follows: 
  1. “Incredibles 2” (2018)
  2. “Finding Dory”  (2016)
  3. “Minions” (2015)
  4. “The Secret Life of Pets” (2016)
  5. “Despicable Me 3” (2017)
“Incredibles 2” is super-powerful at the top of Fandango’s movie buzz index, Fanticipation, with a positively heroic 99 out of 100 points and leading all Fandango weekend sales. “Incredibles 2” was also voted as the summer’s most anticipated family film in a recent Fandango summer movie poll.
In a Fandango survey of over 1,000 “Incredibles 2” moviegoers:
  • 87% say they are fans of director Brad Bird (“The Iron Giant,” “Ratatouille”).
  • 85% have seen “The Incredibles” more than once, and 60% of them have seen it more than four times.
  • 75% saw the first “Incredibles” on the big screen back in 2004.
  • 74% are particularly excited to see Samuel L. Jackson return as “Frozone.”


“’Incredibles 2’ is making history as our top animated preseller of all time,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Fans have been waiting a long time for the return of one of our favorite screen families, and the latest Pixar offering is primed for heavy repeat business throughout the summer.”
Fans purchasing Fandango tickets to the film can receive a Fandango FanShop poster of the “Incredibles” family, available here while supplies last.
Fandango FanShop is also offering a curated selection of “Incredibles 2” gear and collectibles, including Elastigirl’s “Incredible Mom” and “Stretch to My Limits” t-shirts, Edna Mode’s “It’s My Way or the Runway” t-shirt, and Funko Pop! figures of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Frozone, Dash, Jack-Jack, the Underminer, and others.

#Giveaway ADRIFT Movie Tickets and Prize Pack!

Giveaway- Win ADRIFT Movie Tickets and Prize Pack- Multiple Winners!

ADRIFTI am just obsessed with ocean movies and shark movies. Although Adrift has no sharks in it there was still plenty of ocean and suspense. Maybe it was my years of spending summer at the beach. From the minute I heard about Adrift I could not wait to see it. Last Friday when it opened in theaters nationwide it was definitely deemed “Date Night” with hubby! We headed to the show. Of course he enjoyed it but was not as big a fan as I was that night. If you are a stranded in the ocean fan, this movie is definitely for you! And PS- bring your tissues!

Synopsis: ADRIFT stars Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), and is based on the inspiring true story of two sailors who set out to journey across the ocean from Tahiti to San Diego. Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history, a category five! After the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard severely injured and their boat unrepairable. Tami realizes there is no chance of rescue and  must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.


GIVEAWAY: I am so excited to partner with the ADRIFT movie to bring a bunch of lucky 3decades3kids readers a great giveaway! We have some Grand Prizes which are ADRIFT Movie Prize Packs that include a Solar Powered Lantern, Adrift Book and Two movie tickets to Adrift!
