the 3/21 pledge

education is really important to me.

we have been saving for malena's college (he thinks she will choose UW, i am pretty sure she will be a WWU viking like her mama) since she was born. i feel super lucky that we have been fortunate enough to be able to do that.

as much as i believe that education is important for our girl, i believe that it is equally important for all kids.

if they want to go to school, they should be able to go to school.

i wrote about the 3/21 pledge last year that raises funds for people with down syndrome to receive college scholarships.

and clearly, i am going to write about it again this year or you wouldn't be reading these words right now.

because even though i am really tired exhausted, and writing this from my bed with the lights off and my laptop resting on my legs and my pillow calling screaming my name, there are things to be done that can make this world a better place for someone else.

if you too believe in education for kids that want to go, and maybe even more so for the kids that face harder circumstances in getting there, think about donating $21 to put towards scholarships.

you can read about and see stories of the kids it is helping by reading this.

happy thursday all, let's do some good with this one.
