Giving Thanks....Reading Partners!

This girl is finally home for a Thanksgiving...first time in four years....yep we are thankful to have the whole family together and the fact she found a job she is loving.
This girl found a service opportunity through AmeriCorps at Reading Partners
Reading Partners works with more than 160 schools in low-income communities    across eight states and the District of Columbia
They recruit and train community volunteers to work one-on-one with students for 45 minutes twice a week, following a structured, research-based curriculum.
The girl's job is to find those volunteers!
(Here she is at City Hall in Baltimore, MD.  Who could say no?:)
She just told us about this amazing program at Amazon called AmazonSmile.  When you sign in at and buy something 5% of your purchase price goes to your charity of choice...and Reading Partners is on the list of charities!:)
There are thousands of charities on their list so even if you don't choose Reading Partners pick something near and dear to your's a no brainer!  You just have to remember to sign in at each time and use your existing account. Wish I knew about this years ago!
As you can see Reading Partners logo is orange and blue so of course I had to get out some fabrics and play....mug rugs and runners to bring some color to their office!
Now it's time for me to go eat some pie...pumpkin, apple, chocolate chess....I can't decide so I think I'll have a piece of all three!
Happy Turkey Day....I'm thankful for all of you!!
