The charity I'm highlighting today, is the March of Dimes; march for babies.
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.

It’s not like I am a chick and need a big flamboyant party to say, ‘Hey, look at me I am a big girl now’. Yeah, so whatever, right?...Well no. she wants me to celebrate with my friends on a different date than my actual birthday. That’s fine, but she said on my birthday she wants to spend the entire day with me. Just me, and get this, she’ll let me skip school. That part is cool, but I don’t know about the spend…

Woven Myst - Young Adult Magazine

BY  None of us non-published fans understand what authors go through to have their work published. A story is written but that’s only the first step. Finding someone to publish your story is the next step, and that step alone might never happen. But when it does, your story will never be the same. Some have positive experiences with editors but some do not and they choose to go their separate ways with their publishers.
