    As the event is coming close to an end, it is really interesting to look back and see how all the little things add up to make a big difference.  The challenge has definitely upped my awareness about ways to make a difference. ( plus I found it very satisfying to click the buttons and get my little trophies each day!) Planning on keeping it going after the challenge is over.

      If you can go to Phipps on Friday the 15th for the film screening, I recommend it! They're showing How We Grow.

    I'm headed to the Murrysville Area E-Waste Recycling and Shredding Event with Andy Yoder today!!  Feels good to get rid of some of those old tvs and computers.  The event is going on from 10:00-1:00 today at the Calvary Lutheran Church in Murrysville.
