The Youth Rally Committee creates a community for young people with rare medical conditions to bond over shared experiences, learn about symptom management, and find relief from the sense of alienation that accompanies these rare conditions. Kids aged 11–17 with bowel and bladder disorders such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and cancers of the bowel or bladder come together once a year for a weeklong rally on a college campus. During their stay, they take part in outdoor games and off-campus trips to local museums, and learn how to manage their conditions with activities overseen by nurses and counselors who also have similar conditions. Counselor skits and a camp dances relieve stress in the evenings, while off-campus events promote medical self-management in a public setting.

The team of trained professionals from Dos Funny Frogs utilizes its finely honed powers of scour to transform disheveled homes into their cleaner, glossier counterparts. Rolling up in the Frogmobile, the supervised Dos Funny Frogs crew of three to five cleaners confronts messy domiciles with nontoxic, green-cleaning Sapos solvents that are safe for countertops and floor-licking pets alike. Kitchen nightmares of crusted marinara and sentient microwave mold are eviscerated through elbow grease along appliances, cabinets, counters, sinks, and more. Bathrooms face decontamination as slick surfaces are polished and scrubbed, motivation lipstick credos are cleared from mirrors, and the remote control is finally retrieved from the toilet. The bedroom is exorcised of dirty demons, uncovering the beautiful floor that was suffocating under a carpet of dirty clothes.
Suits, wedding dresses, and household items are all given a second chance at Dobson Mills Valet Dry Cleaners. The dedicated team of cleaners helps to extend the life of everyday wardrobe items such as shirts and pants along with high-maintenance fabrics such as leather, fur, and designer life jackets. The dry cleaners can also take in stained garments and return them looking crisp and clean. Tailoring services take ill-fitting clothing and widen or alter them to fit beautifully, and the tailors can also fit customers for suits, hem pants and skirts, and patch up holes or fibers thinned out by muscular shoulders or knees that have been playing tag with doctors' reflex hammers.

Cleaning crews perform their tasks courteously and with extra attention paid to special instructions.
