Thanksgiving Event Feeds More Than 310 - Save Our Bones

I am thrilled to let you know that thanks to your participation in our Save Our Bones Thanksgiving event, our donation to the Broward Outreach Center fed more than 310 holiday meals to the homeless!

I visited the facility on Thanksgiving day to hand out the donation check and met with Francine, the center's upbeat and energetic Director and with her dedicated staff. They asked me to post their most heartfelt THANK YOU for making this Thanksgiving “feast” a huge success. I want you to know that we really made a difference in the lives of hundreds.

Here I am delivering the donation to Francine and some of the event organizers:

Visiting the center is always an uplifting experience for me – you really get to see the true nature of people and the good we can do when we work together.

And of course, I also give thanks to you, not only for joining me to help the homeless, but also for allowing me to do what I love to do each and every day. If not for you joining the Save Our Bones community, I would be all alone in my endeavor to bring common sense back to bone health.

I am thankful for many things in my life… and especially to you for letting me share with you my passion to uncover the truth about osteoporosis and to teach the revolutionary solutions that work… naturally.

My wish is that in return, the Save Our Bones community is your source for good bone health and peace of mind.

I hope you had a meaningful Thanksgiving, and for those of you not in the United States…I hope you had a wonderful and grateful day.

And here's to a wonderful start to a blessed holiday season.

In health and happiness,

Vivian Goldschmidt

    Fantastic website. Just want to say thanks for exposing those dangerous drugs. I was brought up to question what is in that drug, and what side affects it has. A real wakeup call, as we put so much trust in our doctors, but they are only human, and can make mistakes too.I would rather take natural supplements, like magnesium. and most important a healthy diet. Our bodies are not lacking drugs, they are lacking minerals etc.

    I am 57 and have not yet been diagnosed with any bone issues. I am told that my numbers did change slightly but I am still well within the “normal” range. I am using the information shared in the Save Our Bones program to stop any further deterioration.

    Thank you so much for putting it out there.

    I worked with the Homeless Mentally Ill for 20
    years and it was the most demanding yet satisfying position that I held.
    I thank God for Souls like yours and will keep
    you in prayer.

    I am so glad you are out there as a Christian living active faith by helping other in need. In these difficult of times, more of that needs to go around.

    If the question is, but how can I help? That’s an easy one for me….look around and see who you can help in your area that is a worthy cause. Spread your help around. One of my favorite movies is “Pay It Forward.”

    Sometimes, it just the simplest thing that you do which doesn’t even have to cost you money but your time. Like a listening ear of support to someone going through a difficult time that you know, mailing a letter over to a soldier oversea, a kind positive or self effacing humor to lightened the grocery store clerk day, making that follow up call of unfinished business, helping those in your area to pick themselves back up to keep looking for a job, donating your clothing to Good Will Stores, dropping off needed coats, gloves, hats or school supplies to your local school, ask the school if there is a family or child that you can adopt to give them age appropriate Christmas gifts or food to stock their cupboards, volunteer of your time at your local school, help out a teacher in her classroom with at risk learners, adopting a needy family for Christmas through your church or local Social Service Agencies, donate blood to Red Cross, don’t forget the elderly in your area that need support, visit, errands or Meals brought in …or those that are forgotten in nursing homes. There are all kinds of shelters out there. There are animal shelters that need support and supplies. There are so many ways to help out if your eyes are truly opened to see.

    I’ve been doing just that in my area… I’ve already adopted two families that can’t afford Christmas for their children. I just adopted a racehorse from http://WWW.New They are committed to saving good racehorses to reteach & retrain them that they have a purpose of pleasure after the racetracks. Their goal in the end is to hopefully find that permanent home and vocation… while at the same time helping trouble teens at Joint Vocational School who literally ride and take care of the horses in their stalls. I deliberately adopted such a wonderful horse this time of year knowing how hard it is to feed a horse during the winter months. My donation helps to feed a few more horse for the next few months while at the same time I know indirectly that I am helping these agency to help at risk teenagers. There are plenty of animal shelter, zoos, animal rehab places that need your support. There are racing dogs that need homes. There are so many ways to help others out there…just look around you, share your gifts that you have been blessed with by hooking up with reputable agency to help another for their sake. You’ll find that joy of truly helping another with no strings attached. Doesn’t get much better than that. Kim Mack

    Your e-mails are so encouraging. I was told just exactly as you wrote that if I did not do the treatment necessary, I would end up with a broken hip or worse. It is considerably scary.

    I do so want to believe in your program. I started taking Fosamax a month ago….one every week and I just do not feel right. I seem to have sleepless nights and I am seems to have more aches and pains throughout my body. I am thinking seriously of discontinuing the Fosamax, but I am supposed to see my Dr. in six months and then what? If things have not improved….? He says my left hip is like a potato chip….hummmm?

    I do enjoy all of your comments and please continue to e-mail me. I am a slow joiner, but I was so impressed by your last e-mail and the pictures you sent of Thanksgiving that I am close to making the change.

    Thanks Vivian

    Dear Vivian,
    A big thank you for all you are doing for us and others. I am still reading the book. Thanks for stopping me to go ahead with conventional treatment I was offered. They were going to test a new medicine on me. May God bless you and guide you always.

    Thank you Vivianfor all the work you do in spreading the truth. I thought I had lost my book however I found the book in my file drawer. I share you e mails with family and friends. A easy way to get the word out, there is another way to build your bones.

  11. Barbara Cole

    Hi Vivian
    I just have a question regarding surgery on my shoulder. I have a torn rotator cuff and I have Osteoporosis…The surgeon said it should be ok if I have the surgery but I have other people telling me it will be very difficult for my bones to heal with Osteoporosis! And they could harm my already weak bones! Could you please share your opinion?
    Thank you so much,,,,,,,VERY SCARED!

    • Lynn Clark

      Hi Barbara,

      Just thought I’d try to put your mind at rest a little bit – I to have osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis, I had surgery last March ’08 to totally replace my right ankle, and I was absolutely fine! in fact I went for another check-up yesterday, and was told the x-rays are brilliant, and my ankle is so much better to walk on than before, hence a better life for me!
      Hope this has helped, I don’t know what Vivian would suggest, but I wouldn’t hesitate!
      Take care

    Dear Vivian, your Thanksgiving dinner program was quite commendable. Congratulations on it’s success. Could I ask you to please send me the rest of the program. I have only received the book and would like the entire program. Thank you for helping. I purchased this program for my boyfriend who was having horrible leg cramps. Now he is off Fosomax and no more leg cramps. Thanks for the information on Fosomax.

    Thank you Vivian for helping us be more informed with bone help and for your unselfish help to the needy.

    Vivian :

    What a great idea to share part of your monetary income with the homeless this past thanksgiving. I shared mine mostly with my relatives who are recovering from a series
    of storms. I hope that God will continue to
    bless you with material abundance and business
    success always.

    With warm ALOHA! Julie Hernandez

  26. Janice Cavalcante

    Thanks Vivian for all you do. I have received your package and am glad I could help at least someone in need……..You are a wonderful, caring person, and I talk about you to my doctors who question my going cold turkey on Fosamax and the rest of those poisons. I haven’t gotten a chance to check out the contents because I still have family here from the holiday and won’t be able to until they are gone and I’ve straigtened up a bit, but I’ll get to it all….I promise!!
    God Bless you.


  27. Adebisi Sowunmi

    How wonderful that your concern for people’s bone-health (and therefore wholesomeness) has another uplifting dimension — bringing joy to the needy. You really are a very practical, committed, selfless and loving person. It’s a privilege to know about you. I wish you more success in your charitable work.

  28. Gloria Brinker

    Dear Vivian,

    I admire your unselfish volunteer works to the needy.

    I’m happy reading your informative information
    on osteoporosis.

    This is another inspiring story.
    Not only are you teaching us how to save our (own) bones, but you take extra steps to reach out to many others.

    You are a wonderful person Vivian. Your dedication to those in need speaks volume for your love for your fellow man.God bless you.
