Adventures in Thailand

In January 2011, I traveled to Thailand.  It was one of the best trips of my life.  I completely fell in love and can't wait to go back.  I'm never happier than when I'm traveling.

Ethiopia Reads

There are so many ways to make a huge difference for communities around the world while enriching your own life.  Ethiopia Reads is one of them.  Ethiopia Reads is a program to get books to children in Ethiopia.  Their mission statement: 
"To create a reading culture in Ethiopia by connecting children with books. By planting libraries for children, creating culturally appropriate reading materials and training educators to nurture a love of books, Ethiopia Reads brings hope and educational skills to this generation of Ethiopians."
There are many ways to support the organization, including donating books, sponsoring a library or purchasing books they publish.  It is a great way to teach your child about a different culture while helping children in Ethiopia. Everybody wins! I encourage you to check out their website, www.ethiopiareads.org
