International Women’s Day

I remember, as a kid, being told that girls could do anything. I was told this over and over again. But when I walked into shop class or a computer class in junior high and high school, I was generally the only girl there.

If we collect more, we’ll share the love to even more local nursing homes. This is a great way for kids of all ages to join together in a community service project that allows them to send some love out into their community.
