Today's Pretty Special.
First, it's America Recycles Day, and you can find a cool event going on year you on the National Recycling Coalition's website. Like, near me in NYC, there's "Green Screens" Electronic Recycling Event, where I'm totally getting rid of my old phone with zero guilt. Yay!
Second, it's National Adoption Day! This year's goals are to: "Finalize adoptions from foster care in all 50 states, celebrate and honor families who adopt, raise awareness about the 129,000 children in foster care waiting for adoption, encourage others to adopt children from foster care and build collaboration among local adoption agencies, courts and advocacy organizations."
I actually just donated a ton of Young Adult books to a foster care center near me, which was really fun, and cleared space for new reads. Think about what you guys can do today to celebrate these events!
Our own Little Willow has a list of great books that deal with adoption up on her blog. Anyone have more picks?
