Mix a dash of bake sale with a pinch of family helping family to get Sunday's fundraiser at Temple Bat Yahm to help people with multiple sclerosis. Baking is hardly a chore for Corona del Mar resident Linda Siegel. It's extra fun, she said, when any of her six grandchildren stop by to help. On a recent weekday morning, all of them crowded into the kitchen to make sugar cookies. But unlike many baking sessions, eating the inventory wasn't the goal. The family members were preparing for an upcoming bake sale fundraiser, called Don't Mess with MS, to be held from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday at Temple Bat Yahm in Newport Beach.

Last year when Eastbluff Elementary School in Newport Beach was about to lose a physical education teacher and kindergarten class aides to budget cuts, the PTA raced to find a way to save the positions. The Eastbluff Elementary School Otter Rock and Run jog-a-thon was born. Organizers hoped to take in about $7,000, PTA Event Chairwoman Emily Grimmond said. The event raised $17,000, saving the staff they would've lost. "We were blown away," she said. With a year's experience running the fundraiser under her belt and added community support, Grimmond hopes Friday's second Otter Rock and Run topped that.

Sage Hill School students tend to get all the books they need for classes, not to mention medical attention, food, water and proper sanitation. Most of these seem obvious, but they don’t in northern Uganda, where a civil war between the government and a rebel group that uses kidnapping and child soldiers has left many residents in vast, disease-stricken relocation camps. The two worlds came a little closer at an assembly Tuesday when speakers from the international aid group Invisible Children Inc. raised awareness about Ugandan children’s plight and offered ways to help.

Last week, my boss asked me to tag along with him for lunch at our favorite spot, the Yardhouse. He was planning to meet with Debra Miller, a Newport Beach woman who had started the organization CureDuchenne Muscular Dystrophy, www.cureduchenne.org , to discuss news coverage of her group and its events. Not one to turn down a free lunch, I agreed. I'm sure glad I did. Miller told us her story about how she founded the organization, and it was both heartbreaking and inspirational.
