Give WITS to a Kid on “Giving Tuesday”

Posted November 27, 2012 & filed under Notebook.

With Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday behind us, today is a chance to help those less fortunate. “Giving Tuesday” — It’s a simple idea.  And it’s a way to make your community better through giving. 

“If I were snow, I would cover the world with a white, crystal blanket of peacefulness.”

– by Ava, WITS 4th grader
